After deciding that she wanted a change in her career, Kelly wanted something that was flexible, but would also give a high level of education.
Where did your initial interest in fitness come from?
"I’ve had an interest in fitness from a young age. I wasn’t very academic at school and all my motivation and proactivity came through the sports I played. I then worked as a care worker where I worked with people who had become disabled later in life and wanted to help prevent people getting sick in the first place by utilising my knowledge in health and social care and educating people about a healthy lifestyle and fitness whilst they are young and healthy".
What is your current role?
"I am a qualified Level 3 Pilates teacher and hold Pilates and Boxolates classes at Samurai Hearts, in Freeman Street, Grimsby. My classes are fun and interactive and I am looking forward to creating more interesting classes after my qualification comes through".
What is in the future for you?
"I intend to put all my energy into growing my business.I have a drive to create more interesting classes, but still stick to a traditional Pilates formula. I started Boxolates because I found that it was a more dyslexia friendly way of teaching, as it is circuit based and there is no need to think about sequencing and left and right like standard group based Pilates".
