Get to know our team…
I’m currently a 4th year student at the University of Edinburgh studying Physical Education and I have my level 2 fitness instructor qualification (since 2018). Health & fitness is a huge passion of mine and I make sure to incorporate exercise and training into my daily routine. I really rely on exercise for the benefits I gain both physically and mentally! My Hiit & Strength classes will be suitable for all abilities & I can’t wait to motivate you all over the coming months.
I’m a level 3 personal trainer, I specialise in strength and endurance training with a military focus. I was lucky enough to row around the UK this summer! This gave me a lot of experience in training myself and the team to complete the challenging expedition.
I’ve found physical training to be an essential cornerstone in improving my own mental health and I want to share this with others.
I’m 21 and live in Edinburgh as a student. I first discovered yoga in my early teens as a means of recovery from running. I was a competitive athlete at this time, but I quickly realised that yoga was so much more than just a physically beneficial practice- it also has a massively positive impact on my mental health and overall personal life. I completed my 200 hour RYT over lockdown and have been teaching pretty much every day since! I am trained in Vinyasa, Hatha, Yin and Restorative Yoga. I am so excited to work with Bound to further spread the message surrounding the intrinsic link between physical & mental health!
My name is AnnaSophia and I am a fourth year Graphic Design Student at Edinburgh College of Art within the University of Edinburgh. I reached out to help BoundFitness with their graphics, because I appreciate their stance on mental health as I have first-hand experience of mental health affecting my physical health. Comparing myself to others and fear of failure stopped me from working out and I became overweight. Once I managed to focus on working out for myself and making it enjoyable, I lost 30 lbs in about half a year which made working out even more fun! Now I am excited to help BoundFitness grow and spread this mentality throughout Edinburgh and beyond.
