Olivia is a Personal Trainer and Fitness Manager, specialising in dance, Pilates and mobility classes, as well as aerobics, conditioning and stretch classes.
Olivia’s from a village in Cambridgeshire, but recently moved to Scotland, and she’s been with us for over 2 years. She’s a professionally trained dance and musical theatre graduate but also has qualifications in sports massage therapy.
Olivia is passionate about all things creative and regularly performs in a Dirty Dancing Musical around the UK. Fun fact – she managed to convince her peers at stage school that Ross Kemp was her dad for 3 years.
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve danced before – this workout helps you build strength and tone around the key muscles that dancers use. There are a few steps to pick up, but it’s a lot slower than a typical dance class.
This 20-minute session aims to work as many muscle groups as possible, while keeping your heart rate up. The routine includes weights, but if you don’t have any at home, you could use canned goods, water bottles or even laundry detergent bottles.
This routine focuses on back mobility and glute strength, which is great if you're spending a lot of time sat down. It's split into 6 exercises, some of which you can modify for more of a challenge, as well as a relaxation section at the end.
This calming seated routine is perfect if you’ve got any aches, pains or injuries, or you simply want to unwind. You’ll start with some breathing exercises, followed by some gentle stretches and finally a body scan. You can either sit on a mat or on a chair, whichever is more comfortable for you.
