We couldn’t really claim to be the fittest bunch of people at Team Wonderush. The most exercise we used to get was joking about how one of us never really gets to the gym, despite meaning to. However, our fitness levels are starting to change since we met the Hackney Hiitsters. Their HIIT workouts are hardcore but fun, and the group itself is friendly and encouraging (definitely necessary after about five minutes of work). In fact, they’re so great we couldn’t resist finding out a little bit more, so we spoke to Shelley, their awesome founder:
How did you get into what you do?
I have always been into fitness from a young age. I the studied it at College then went on to University to gain a BSc in Sport Science. From here I started my fitness career as a Personal Trainer at David Lloyd getting involved in many group exercise classes along the way.
How would you describe your teaching style?
Motivational and encouraging all the way.
Why would you recommend your activity?
Our classes effective and full of functional and fun exercises.
Can you tell us something surprising about yourself?
I can play the Ukuele.
What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not at work?
Socialise with friends and fitness of course!
What’s your favourite part of London? Any places you’d recommend there?
Stoke Newington has had my heart from the beginning, Church Street is a magical place.
If you could try any experience in the world, what would it be, and why?
If it can be out of the world? It would to visit the moon and experience space, the unknown excites me!
What does the future have in store for you?
With working at Premier Training I teach students to build their own business. When they ask me my plan, my reply is always ‘going global’!
If you fancy an amazing workout check out Hackney Hiitsters and get booking! You’ll ache tomorrow, but you’ll thank us later.
