Camilla Dallerup – Star of Strictly Come Dancing

Camilla is a NLP Master Practitioner Coach and this is an amazing opportunity to hear about the benefits of NLP (neuro lingustic programming) and how it

actively uses your mind and your emotions and your body to run your own life more successfully. After her talk, participants will be treated to a dancercise class to help boost the metabolism and show how fun fitness can be! http://www.camilla

James Crossley – ‘Hunter’ from Gladiators

James has carved a successful career post Gladiators as a personal trainer and owner of gyms in London and Europe.

He will be coming along to talk about Tabata interval training which turns the conventional ideas about fitness on its head. Tabata interval training is the single most effective type of high intensity interval training, it’s also the most intense by far, and surprisingly it’s the shortest in duration, it only lasts for twenty minutes… broken down to intervals of 20 second work 10 seconds rest 8 times over 4 sets.

After his talk, he will be leading a Tabata class to show you what it’s all about. male/hunter/

Mark & Jackie Wren – Personal Trainers to Davina McCall

Virtually celebrities in their own right, this is an incredible chance to take part in one of Mark & Jackie’s high intensity workouts, familiar to those who have used Davina’s fitness DVDs. Like Davina, Yummy mummies will benefit from hearing their talk about their approach to weight loss and getting fitter. Book early for this one!
