Courtney Casella Crisp

Position: Class Instructor

I became a dance teacher at the age of 12 after being at my dance school from the age of 2. This is where my passion for dance grew and I started taking qualifications in different mediums of dance to become a certified teacher. Then 3 years ago, after participating in a workshop, I decided to become a Zumba Instructor also, to expand my knowledge and types of classes that I could teach. It was through doing this for a year and regularly attending the gym that I knew I wanted more and trained as a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer in 2015.

Since then I have continued to develop my skills becoming a Circuit Instructor, Exercise to Music Instructor, Pre and Post Natal Specialist, GP Referral Instructor and an Obesity and Diabetes Specialist, all while teaching Zumba and Dance on a weekly basis.

Most recently, since finishing all of my qualifications, I have been really focussing on my own health and fitness, using the knowledge I have developed to create my own weight loss plan. Within the last 2 months I have lost a stone in weight and that is through tracking my nutrition, putting 110% effort into my Zumba classes and also including my own workouts at home through the week. I am proof that pairing nutrition and exercise, finding your passions and motivations and not giving up you can reach your goals. This is what I want to share with everyone that I teach so that they too can reach their goals and feel fabulous!
