I am a born and bred Norfolker though I am now based in London. I grew up with a huge love for music and dance. (closely following TOTP dance routines!) At college I studied Musical Theatre/Dance and Music Performance. It wasn’t until I was 21 when I found my love for the Les Mills programmes.
I love music! Just being able to put movement to it and to experience the endorphin rush makes it all that much better. I love what I do and I want to enable others to enjoy exercise so much that they cant get enough! I have achieved a lot of things in the past few years that I put down to mind over matter, pure determination and dedication. For example:
I completed a marathon (some guy telling me that I didn’t look like a runner gave me the motivation for that) and I passed my lifeguard qualification after years of thinking I was a rubbish swimmer. Therefore you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to and give 100%.
Life is to be enjoyed. If you're not enjoying it, change it. No matter what.

Hi, I am Sara Petit, mum of two and a qualified Totally Shredded®, Zumba® and Jungle Body Instructor/Ambassador.
Previously I had attended the odd fitness class but was never disciplined enough to attend on a regular basis. My sister in law dragged me to Zumba® and I was instantly hooked. I loved it so much that I then decided to train as a Zumba Instructor. I started running my own classes and that's then met Carly Linnecor. She was also a natural so I approached her to see if she would be interested in training as an instructor.
I then discovered The Jungle Body programme. I passed the instructors course in March 2013 and became a UK Jungle Body Ambassador in June 2013. I am now qualified in all five programs. I have run various UK Instructors workshops and presented the programs at various Fitness Weekends/Conventions and am proud to do so. These programs are amazing, easy to follow and yet so effective.
The latest programme I qualified in that blew me away is Totally Shredded® Fitness. Drum and base music creates an amazing atmosphere in these high intensity combat workouts. I absolutely love these classes.
At 38 I feel the fittest I have ever been and at last can say I am comfortable in my own skin. It has given me confidence, helped me greatly with my anxiety issues and keeps me fit, healthy and alert.

Hi, I am Thierry and I am a personal trainer and yoga instructor with a passion for health and wellbeing as a whole and yoga in particular. My life revolves around empowering others to improve their confidence through mental and physical stimulation and that is what I do best. My main intention through my teaching is to remind myself and others that the best form of self medication is movement and exercise. Having suffered from mental health issues myself for a number of years I always found that my chemistry balance changes after exercise and self care activities such as fitness or yoga. This year I will be presenting two very distinctive classes classes here at Fitness Fiesta: Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Fitness Yoga. I hope you enjoy them.

Hi, Im Zeus
A little bit about me, I have over 30 years experience in the fitness industry. Originating from the Caribbean I started my fitness career at the famous Sandals Resorts as a Gym Manager. I've progessed over the years as a Fitness Instructor, Dance Instuctor, Yoga Instructor, Aqua Fitness Instructor, and also became one of the dynamic team of Waterfitness to qualify as a Hyro Fitness Instructor and also teach to Instructor level in Aqua Fitness, HydroRyder and Aqua Hydro Yoga.
It doesn't stop there, I also run studio classes in a number of clubs in the London and West Sussex regions. You could say I really enjoy my work, but I have a reputation of delivering a energetic hard workout sesson, not for the faint hearted which people seem to love and come back for more. I would describe myself as highly motivating, outgoing and positive attitude and love music and thrive on energy I get back from my clients. I enjoy Fitness Fiesta as theres a great vibe and I have been attending for a number of years at venues throughout the country with WaterFitness.
