My group fitness instructor career began in 2009 and my background in dance and gymnastics has created the foundation for my passion and dedication in the fitness industry. I am super excited to present Corebar at Fitness Fiesta this year. Through Corebar training you can learn how to push yourself, test your limits and improve your stamina. You will be able to go for it, all the way, without holding back, resulting in"raising the bar" - both in what you expect of yourself when you work out and when meeting challenges or obstacles in other aspects of life. Get ready for a new and innovative fitness concept that makes training hard fun!

'My interest in fitness and in particular group exercise started 5 years ago when I stepped into a gym studio and took part in a BODYPUMP class. The energy in the room was contagious, the feeling afterwards was incredible. I instantly noticed the positive effect LES MILLS classes had on people and I just knew I wanted to be a part of the Tribe. Fast-forward 2 years and I qualified in my first LES MILLS program'. 'I truly believe that group exercise changes peoples' lives. With every single class that I teach, be it to 5, 50 or 500 people I strive to inspire as many people as I can to have a happy and healthy life; I want my members to fall in love with movement and share this passion with others; I want us all to create a positive change in the world - one workout at a time!'

Sara Petit

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.
