I left the Island to gain further experience and qualifications in the Health an Fitness industry and gained it as follows:

I spent 5 years in Nottingham trading as CrispinFit and taught at the following main private gyms: Virgin Active, David Lloyd’s, Nuffield Health and Fitness, DW Fitness, Hoofers, Nottingham University and Mapperley Infants School.  I taught over 240 people per week over 26 classes. 

My qualifications include: Exercise to Music, Aqua Exercise to Music, Gym Instructor, Pilates Instructor, Freestyle Fitness Yoga Instructor, Antigravity Yoga, Suspension Fitness Instructor, Kettle Bells, Zumba, Zumba Toning, and Zumba Aqua; Young Yoga and I'm also a Biomechanics Coach.

Whilst working in Nottingham I worked for the Y.M.C.A. on a G.P. referral scheme aiming to reduce cardiovascular disease. I created both chair exercises and gentle circuits for the over 60’s members.

My dream has been to create a gym and group exercise centre to bring all my skills under one roof.  I am excited and passionate about fitness and work towards passing these qualities on to my clients. In so doing they will wish to continue their programme of exercises in order to remain in an improved condition throughout their lives; thus improving their overall health, and general feeling of well-being. It also helps people to socialise and make new friends and contacts. The potential benefits are limitless. I believe in providing a safe high quality fitness package which people adhere to, enjoy (ish!) and gain benefit from.
