Based in West London, Zoe’s passion for a healthy lifestyle goes beyond the average gym membership. After graduating from Imperial College in 2009 with a BSc in Chemistry, Zoe’s love of fitness stemmed from her own experience with a personal trainer. Amazed by the influence a professional had on her physical and mental transformation, she qualified as a PT with the aim to transform the lives of her clients through structured and intelligent training, whatever their age and fitness level. Using strength and conditioning practices combined with Pilates, yoga, TRX, kettlebells and Crossfit, Zoe’s mission is to make exercise fun and motivating. Concentrating on functional fitness that we use in our day-to-day movements is the basis of Zoe’s varied exercise programmes to build a strong body and a focused mind. You’ll be able to spot her hard earned and inspiring bod on the Every Second Counts site.

The Gut Health Dr
Dr Megan Rossi’s countless accolades speak for themselves. A Registered Dietician with a PhD in gut health from The University of Queensland, Australia, it’s fair to say that Megan knows a thing or two about diet and nutrition. Not only has she received the Dean’s Award for outstanding research, she was also selected as one of nine international female success stories by Cosmopolitan magazine. After completing her work as a sports nutritionist for the Australian Olympic Synchronised Swimming team, Megan now splits her time between the UK and Oz, juggling her role as a lecturer at the University of Queensland with her job as a Research Associate at King’s College, London where she explores the success of the low FODMAP diets, pre and probiotics and dietary fibres. If that wasn’t enough Megan has also opened up a gut health clinic on Harley Street, London and is working with Leon restaurants on a nationwide initiative. With a wealth of nutritional knowledge, Megan makes the science of gut health easy to digest with her tips on social media and her investigative work into nutrition-based therapies on her website. It’s no wonder she has been touted as one of the six new wellness stars to watch in 2017 by Women’s Health UK.

From conventional strength training to gymnastics, calisthenics and capoeira-influenced moves, his training and interests take him around the world, guiding his clients both in person and remotely.

What better way to keep fit than to do something that you love? That’s exactly what Ariana’s ethos was when she created a workout concept like no other.

Obsessed with fitness, and how powerful music enhances it, Ariana’s inspiration stems from the companies she admires such as Sofar Sounds and Secret Cinema Club to offer the client a truly unique experience. Being a curious creature, Ariana tries out as many new fitness classes as possible to lookout for new interesting musicians and passionate instructors. With 22 years of dance behind her Ariana is also a trained digital marketing expert and writes in her spare time.
