SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPIST
Being a former architect, I decided to move from shaping buildings and spaces to shaping bodies and minds, by becoming a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist. I am a Premier Training International graduate, one of the UK’s top Training Provider in the health and fitness industry.
After various experiences, I decided to become self-employed and to open my own company: Wellnessa, which offers a wide range of services, from Personal Training to Sports Massage Therapy (in client’s homes, offices, private or regular gyms).
I am qualified as an indoor/outdoor Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist, but I also have various qualifications such as: ante/post natal instructor, GP referral instructor, indoor-cycling instructor, master kettle-bell instructor, circuit training and body conditioning instructor.
I also attend regularly to workshops and trainings to keep learning – this industry, like any other, is perpetually evolving.
And, if you ever fancy spicing up your session, I can train you also in French or in Arabic, as with my bi-cultural background, I am fluent in both!
Vanessa is simply a brilliant personal trainer. She worked very hard to design a training regime that met my needs. She is highly motivating and helped me achieve my goals of fitness and weight loss very quickly. She is extremely friendly and encouraging and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend her to future clients.
It was a great working with Vanessa. I enjoyed being pushed as well as the flexibility in terms of timing, or work out design like when I had foot pain. I enjoyed both weight training and cardio and it was great seeing change in my body! I also appreciate Vanessa’s availability outside the sessions answering any question, she was a great motivator and helped me in choosing healthier options too, as well as tips on how to get focused and keep target in mind!
In an ideal world everyone should try a few sessions of a PT. It’s a bit like driving a car and learning any new skill, you wouldn’t do it without learning the right way to do things (especially without injuring yourself). Vanessa was extremely pleasant to work with as she consistently adapted sessions around what I results I wanted, what I enjoyed but was also great at pushing me in a friendly but firm way. My favourite thing working with Vanessa was learning exercises other than the standard pushup/situp and getting taught them properly. Normally I’d be hesitant to try anything new but now I readily do new things in the gym. Also, Nutrition feedback was very helpful and I found her recipes to be great!
