Sophie Russell

I'm passionate about sports and fitness and consider it a real pleasure to share this with others.  I'm a qualified personal trainer and fitness instructor with a background as a triathlete and runner.  I am a mum of 3 and family life is very important to me. I totally understand the juggling act that is required in order to train!

I've run 11 marathons (including one in Moscow..)  and competed in numerous sprint and Olympic distance triathlons and Ironman Austria in 2013.  Through training for these events I have learned about the importance of training within a framework where the energy is really positive and motivation levels are high and can even be contagious!  I also believe that anything is possible if there’s a will to succeed and the right structure is in place.

My qualifications also include ante and post natal fitness and sports nutrition, and I'm a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REP's) at Level 3.  I am also a qualified clinical hypnotherapist specialising in sports performance weight loss.

My mission is to make training sessions fun, diverse, motivational and effective!
