Announcing Balanced Fitness

I’m excited to announce a change in my business name to better reflect all of my learnings around health and fitness from the past 20 years. Introducing Lisa Hill Balanced Fitness – a name which I feel encompasses my way of teaching along with the benefits I can bring to all of my clients and a new name that I’m really proud of.

When I started my career in the fitness world over 20 years ago, I hadn’t anticipated how much I would learn and change in this time. From starting out as a gym instructor, moving into the world of Personal Training, becoming a Pilates Instructor and then in the last two years, qualifying as a MELT Instructor, as well as attending at least one course every year for 20 years, my knowledge and experience has grown and grown and is still growing. I believe the day you stop learning, is the day you stop living. As I write this, I am finishing off my MELT Level 5 training, which means I am at the highest level in MELT and can I tell you it’s a good feeling.

So, what does this mean for me, my business and my clients? It means that every client I work with gets a balanced approach to their session, for me, it means I get to use over 20 years of experience when I teach and for my business, it means I know that I can constantly evolve and change as we continue to learn more about how our bodies work and function.

As Lisa Hill Balanced Fitness, I am offering weekly classes which combine all of the disciplines I teach. I have my own studio in Wokingham, Berkshire and I offer 1-2-1 sessions, MELT classes and sessions for Older Adults. I also offer classes at St. Sebastian’s Church Hall and since March 2020, I have been successfully running online Balanced Fitness, MELT and Cardio, Strength and Conditioning classes for my clients and all my clients get access to a video library of over 100 videos.

I am also very excited to be launching a new class in June, which combines MELT with strength work. As a MELT Instructor, I am very aware that we can be inefficiently mobile, if we are insufficiently stable. What exactly does this mean? If you are lifting weights or performing moves in the gym and you are not stabilised in your shoulder girdle or pelvic girdle, you are at risk of injury. By combing MELT with strength work, it means that I will ensure that you are using the correct muscles for the correct exercise.

To ensure that my clients receive this balanced approach to their fitness goals, I ensure that I get to know all of my clients individually and I achieve this by stipulating that before any new client can join my community they are required to have an introductory face-to-face session. Following this 1-2-1 session, I will advise the best course of action depending on each client’s unique requirements. These sessions take place at my studio in Wokingham and together we then decide if the client joins my classes or continues with 1-2-1 sessions. This is something both myself and the client choose together so that they get the option that is right for them.

This is such an exciting time for me and I am loving being able to combine all of my knowledge and provide a Balanced Fitness approach to my clients and this is why I am proud to be launching Lisa Hill Balanced Fitness. It’s a win win for me and my clients, as I know that I will continue to learn and develop and my clients will continue to have classes that are good for their mind, body and soul.
