A Little Bit About Me
Where to start...I guess you could say I am a dog lover, with a passion for travel, adventure, and keeping healthy.
I have been lucky enough to travel and explore several different cultures and countries during a couple of years away from education which allowed me to broaden my understanding of the differences among our beautiful human race.
Personally, I enjoy weight training, a small bit of running, paddle boarding, climbing, and long walks with my furry best friend!
During Covid, I finished my Childhood and Youth Studies degree from the University of Portsmouth (remotely). My degree allowed me to develop my understanding of people and mental well-being. My final year independent research project was on the relationship between fitness technology and mental health.
Furthermore, alongside juggling long hours in hospitality to fund my studies, I qualified as a Nutritional Advisor, with the FNTP in 2020 and RSPH. Furthermore, I am a qualified Gym Instructor, pre/postnatal trainer and Personal Trainer. (A list of my qualifications are below if you're interested).
I got married in the early summer of 2021, launching Wellbeing By Gemma simultaneously, initially on a mobile, outdoors basis, following this I opened my very own studio in December 2021...
My aspirations for the future envisage a growing business that helps people of all ages, backgrounds, races, gender and sex to become fitter, healthier, and happier people.
I hope you feel able to drop me a message and say hello.
