From Joanna Hall fan to Joanna Hall Trainer!
11th August 2009
Zoe has been in the fitness industry for over 14 years and set up her own Wellbeing Lifestyle Consultancy called 'Plan Be' in Bath in January 2007. She had read several of Joanna's books and used many of her principles with her own clients so, when she heard that Joanna would be at The Vitality Show in 2008 she was excited to visit her stand.
She said; "After listening to her inspiring and motivational talk, I introduced myself and Joanna told me that she was looking for Walk Active trainers around the UK to join her team. So, I joined her for a Taster Walk in Hyde Park and we both really enjoyed it and last year, I joined Joanna on her "Active Family, Active Dog" programme which was a fantastic, educational and emotional 6 weeks. I am now a fully fledged member of the team and work alongside Joanna as her Head Trainer on Walking Spa Breaks
and other events as well as in Bath, my local area, implementing Joanna's disciplines to people there."
"Seeing families develop together and make significant and lasting changes in their life through walking, really focusing on changing the way you walk and your lifestyle and seeing the difference in groups that we work with is phenomenal. I have worked in this arena for some time, but now I am more excited by it than ever. Joanna's knowledge and expertise not only of how the body works physically and in terms of an individual's diet but also phsychologically means that the technique that she develops translates that so that it is accessible by each and every one of us. "Whilst people may try to emulate what she has developed, the more I learn, the more impossible I realise that is. Every single muscle engagement, technique in foot placement and developed way of moving, combined with her eating recommendations, come from her own DNA. The training that she gives is very intense to ensure that her trainers pass on her skills effectively and safely. Helping her to spread her technique and expertise is so fulfilling. She is dedicated, innovative and totally ahead of the game so she is constantly improving her technique and developing other programmes to complement them. After my first 7km Walk Timed Trial
in Bath on Sunday, can see massive potential in reaching out across the UK and getting more people walking well to a healthier, fitter lifestyle."
When Zoe visited me at The Vitality Show I was thrilled that she had not only had success through my books herself, but that she had used some of the priniciples of my work to help others. Her enthusiasm, dedication and absolute commitment to helping other people shines through at all our events and I am proud to have her as a member of my team. She is fully trained, by me, in all the activity that I have developed and implement so I know that she carries it out with credibility and expertise which is why I am confident that she too will deliver great results.
