Hettie Holmes @hettie.holmes
Hettie is head of editorial content and co-founder of DOSE. A keen runner, she’s also partial to a blast of high-intensity and hot yoga. A spa junkie at heart she loves a sauna, firm massage and being in nature. When she’s not jetting off on her next adventure, Hettie can be found in a candle-lit alcove with a full-bodied Malbec.
Rosie Sargeant @sargeypie
After graduating from Cambridge University with a triple First, Rosie decided to pursue a career in the fitness industry rather than follow the traditional path of her peers in investment banking. Unable to shake off the fast-paced routine she developed in her City job, she achieves balance by winding down in yoga sessions, escaping on fitness retreats, and going for extended brunches that somehow seem to wind up in a hidden gem of a cocktail bar.
Shayna Waldman @blondegirlshay
Born and raised on the beaches of sunny LA, Shayna is the quintessential laid-back Cali girl. When she isn’t teaching her sweat-drenched classes at Studio Lagree in the City, she’s sourcing her next coastal travel destination or rooftop spot for a boozy brunch. Shayna’s natural wanderlust spirit gets her into some pretty interesting situations, but she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Rebekah Abdeen @rebekahabdeen
Originally from Newcastle, Rebekah’s journey in the fitness industry started back in 2008. You can find her at Core Collective, where she is a Master Trainer of their Indoor Cycling product, Accelerate. Rebekah is happiest on the indoor bike, where she likes to let loose up to 7 times per week. Outside of work, you’ll catch her knocking back Picante de la Casa’s at Electric House.
Alice Rickard @alicerickarpt
Alice is a personal trainer and co-founder of BSY. She is the queen of extreme, from throwing the hardest HIIT sessions in the gym to raving to the early hours when she gets the chance. A good bottle of white wine and a heavy leg day in the gym will calm her down.
Shara Tochia @sharatochia
Spin instructor by morning, co-founder of DOSE by day. Shara’s fitness favourites include a sweaty yoga class, reformer pilates, HIIT and spinning of course. Her Spotify list includes nothing but tracks you can spin to. She doesn’t go a day without eggs and avocado and travel is always on her mind! Dreams of Malbec and vodka cocktails.
Ian Steed @monkeypantsteed
Ian escaped the sleepy Suffolk countryside for London when he was 18. Twenty years on and his love affair with the city still burns bright. His obsession with fitness and his background in property development lead him to launch Maison De La Vaure, a luxury fitness and lifestyle retreat in Bordeaux. He divides his time between his French retreat, and his London home where he continues to discover the best the city has to offer, be that bars, restaurants or the latest fitness craze.
North East London based LC achieves a balanced lifestyle through a love of HIIT, reformer pilates, and Negronis. When she’s not getting her sweat on in a gym basement somewhere east of the City, LC can be found in one of London’s best drinking dens, enjoying a cocktail and planning her next travel adventure.
Leo Savage @leosavage
Ex rugby player turned personal trainer Leo works hard and plays hard in equal measure. In the gym with clients at 6am most mornings, he is a firm believer that a healthy mind is crucial for a healthy body.
Ishbel Lohman @ishbelannie
Retail strategist by day, Ishbel loves flitting around London studios to break a proper sweat or going on an adventure in the great outdoors. She’s especially happy when climbing rocks and surfing waves. A discerning foodie, Ishbel also loves sampling menus at the latest restaurants.
South-London based Lauren is an avid class go-er and fitness-lover, who constantly falls off the bandwagon. Fuelled by coffee and carbs, evenings and weekends are mostly spent travelling across London to try out the latest class or restaurant opening. She’s a fair-weather runner and cyclist with completely average yoga skills, but bold ambitions to master the ‘scorpion’…
Natalie Morris @nmozz
Journalist and keen netball player. A bit of a gym-class floozy, she loves trying out any session with the word ‘intensity’ in the title – especially if there’s a Beyonce-based soundtrack. Fuelled by a heady mix of carbs, malbec and adrenaline, Nat burns off her excess energy on the court, on a spin bike or frolicking on Hampstead Heath.
Becky Cope @beckydoestheworld
Londoner at heart, northerner by roots. Becky is a huge adventurer, so long as there’s a boat to sail or mountain to climb. Becky’s other passion is food, and lots of it. If she’s not in her kitchen creating culinary masterpieces, she’s exploring the world finding her inspiration. Partial to a rave, Becky has been known to visit Ibiza three times in one year.
For years a self proclaimed fat kid Cory found fitness boring and uninspiring until one day it clicked. “All I have to do is KEEP IT MOVING” so that’s what he did. “Beef” (as he’s also known) binned the day job and now spends his days coaching, hosting & snapping for Nike as well as running special events and classes at OneLDN and MinistryDoesFitness. He hasn’t given up on the food, like most he’s found his balance.
Emma Fawcett @fromfitnesstofork
A self-confessed brunch addict, Emma likes nothing more than filling her weekend/weekday mornings with fitness followed by a good feed – especially when it involves smashed avo. A lover of all things music related, she enjoys watching it live and once dabbled on the decks following a stint DJ school learning how to mix. Other things that make her happy include coffee (or prosecco), trips abroad and yoga.
