Hi I’m Karen Smith, owner of Fitgirlslim.
After gaining 4 stone whilst pregnant in the early ’90’s and struggling to lose the excess weight, I decided to change my eating and exercise habits. Because of this I understand all too well the difficulties of losing weight and becoming fitter.
In 1994, after successfully losing all of my baby weight, I qualified as an Exercise to Music instructor and bought a franchise from a well known diet and fitness company (RCD&FC). This business continued successfully for 19 years, but in 2014 the parent company fell on hard times and was dissolved. It was then that I decided to take the plunge and start up entirely on my own and Fitgirlslim was born.
Fitgirlslim is a small ’boutique’ fitness business, we pride ourselves on remembering everybody’s name and take a genuine interest in monitoring their progress. Whatever your fitness level, we will ensure you get a workout that’s just the right level for you.
I absolutely love to teach classes – Aerobics, Fitsteps, Boxercise, HIIT, Brainfit, Pilates and Fitness Yoga. I believe in creating variety within each class so we don’t get bored. Many of my members have now become friends and we have a pretty lively social scene too!
