About us

Here a Gymbird we all have something in common -
We live for helping you achieve your goal!

I got into fitness in 2004 after a knee injury led me to gain a substantial amount of weight.

I was overweight, unfit, uncomfortable and if I’m honest, suffering with depression. I ate when I was sad, I ate when I was happy and the calories I consumed or what I was actually eating never crossed my mind.

I discovered a personal trainer online and within weeks I was hooked. My first session I couldn’t even fast walk on the treadmill but

here I am 4 stone later and a workout addict.

I’m now a mum to my beautiful baby girl, Lola, and married to my childhood sweetheart, Luke. We live happily with our two dogs, Arnie and Pig, in Liverpool.

Exercise and eating better allowed me to finally have the energy to find my happiness. It really works. I’m not saying it always works first time, or you’ll find happiness in 21 days, but you’re giving yourself a good shot.

Ciara - Trainer

Hey guys! I am Ciara. Mum of two, full-time beautician and part-time fitness instructor.

I only started my journey into the fitness industry during lockdown when my work was limited and I had some more time. I teach lots of Les Mills style classes including: Body Attack, Body Pump and Combat. Hope you enjoy the Body Combat!

Vicky Tam - Trainer

Hey! I’m Vicky. Local personal trainer, mummy to 3 (including two teenagers – help me!) and of recent years fitness fanatic. My journey into fitness started after my third baby. Struggling with my post-natal body, lack of self-confidence and wanting to feel strong I decided to start… somewhere.

To be honest, I got very committed. I was fed up of how I felt and just decided to do it. At first I felt it, then my clothes got too big, then everyone commented and all of a sudden doing a gym workout or even walking into a gym wasn’t overwhelming anymore. I am so proud of what I’ve achieved and it’s so good when you do it that now I want to share that feeling with as many people as possible.

 

I train PT clients part-time from my home gym, including the Gymbird HQ gals and Hat herself. I am a kettlebells fanatic so I hope you enjoy my sessions and feel free to message me or tag me in your stories @vickytamfitness ❤️

Katie - Run Club

I’m Katie & I started Gymbird in Oct 2020 and I haven’t looked back since! Since joining Gymbird I’ve been on such a journey and it’s helped me get into such a better place with my body, mind & relationship with food/diet culture.

Most importantly though, I have met some amaaazing women who have become friends for life, and that’s truly the best thing about the challenge.

I fell in love with running during lockdown and after (drunkenly) signing up for a half-marathon I’ve had the running bug ever since!

Jen - Run Club

Hi, I’m Jenn!

I’m 38, a mobile hairdresser with 2 beautiful children and I am on my own Gym Bird journey. I have struggled with weight and fitness for years but now is the time to concentrate on me. Join me for the beginners group at running club on Wednesdays.

Jess - Run Club

Hey, I’m Jess and I’ve been doing the Gymbird challenge since Harriet started out in the first lockdown on Instagram. Nearly two years later I’ve made friends for life, got fitter and learnt so much along the way. I met Katie and Jenn on the challenge and we became besties and Katie and I ran a half marathon in 2021. We love a run, but also love a wine (oh and our gorgeous dogs).

Ellie - Trainer

Hello lovely people, I’m Ellie Newby. I’m a Yoga Teacher and Physiotherapist.

Like you, I enjoy looking after my body; I would jog, go to the gym, do HIIT classes, but I never really felt like I had given my body and mind time to recover (and if I did, it would usually involve wine!). I would often find myself injured and this would affect my motivation and mood to continue exercising. That was until I found Yoga. Through my clinical practice as a Physiotherapist, I have gained a strong understanding about the human body and always knew I needed to incorporate stretches into my weekly schedule. Alas, I tried Yoga! But it’s so much more than just ‘stretches’…

Yoga is a chance to unwind, escape and enjoy that very moment on the mat. It’s a chance to leave the outside world, to clear the mind from worries and to focus on what is actually important to you. It helps prevent injuries by increasing strength and flexibility, it builds body heat, boosts metabolism, helps digestion, reduces stress (honestly, the list goes on!).

For me, Yoga is a balance between strength and flexibility of the mind and body. After your busy week, I would like to invite you to join me on the mat to unwind, focus and recharge, ready for the new week ahead!

Grace - Massuse

I have worked as a masseuse for over 4 years. I found my passion for massage when I decided to take a holistic approach to my life. Massage is all about body maintenance, relaxation, stress & pain relief. I want my clients to feel the highest sense of well-being when coming for a massage to promote a healthy and positive lifestyle.

Types of massage available:

Aromatherapy – A lighter massage that blends a carrier oil with essential oils. During your massage you inhale these essential oils and absorb them through you skin, benefiting from their many healing properties. Each massage is tailored to the individual. Aromatherapy helps to promote sleep quality, whilst reducing stress and anxiety.

Deep tissue – Unlike other massages that focus on relaxation deep tissue is used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and injuries. This technique involves constant sustained pressure to target the inner layers of your muscles. Improving muscle pain and stiffness.

Swedish – A classic massage that can be both relaxing and energising. Its technique involves a lot of light, rhythmic, tapping strokes on the top layers of the muscles. Swedish is more gentle than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief. Swedish massage is beneficial for pain management, increased flexibility, muscle injuries and stress relief.

Alyson - Trainer

Heres a medium scale catfish pic…

Hello, im Alyson! I am a mum of one and work (almost) full time as a High Intensity CBT therapist.

Before having my little girl, I hammered the gym, had a very active lifestyle and lashed food down my neck like a human dustbin! Fast forward to parenthood and thinks naturally changed. I was really struggling with my training, couldn’t get a grip of my diet and my general motivation was rock bottom. I wasnt happy, didn’t feel like myself and knew i needed a serious kick up the backside! I decided to join the Gymbird challenge and it was honestly the best thing i did!!!

I have a few random qualifications, one of them being ‘exercise to music’. After sending Harriet a vid of some step routine ideas, she Facetimed me and asked me to join the team – i was shook….I don’t really remember the convo after that, but i agreed! So here i am, and i cant quite believe it! xxx

Hannah

Hi I’m Hannah Hilton and I’ve been an Osteopath for 7 years. As an Osteopath I look at your body as a whole and try and see why you are getting particular symptoms and what you can do to reduce and prevent them.

Most of the time we fall into bad habits. We don’t move enough – or when we do, we do it too quickly. All of these can make you prone to injury and that’s the last thing we want when we’ve finally made the decision to get fit and paid our £21. Trust me I’ve been there with my achey knees, taking days out and crying to Hat to make the jumping stop!

The challenge might be a bit of a shock to the system with 21 days of high intensity, but try your best, perfect your technique and do your stretches!

The Body Clinic

Hi, we are Faye and Hollie!

Two sisters who found a love for Pilates through our clinical professions, Faye being a physiotherapist and Hollie a Podiatrist, and together we wanted to share that love with our clients! We were amazed at how this low impact conditioning exercise can help strengthen the core, leg & arm muscles, improve flexibility & restore muscle balance in the body.
We offer mat, small equipment and HITT based Pilates classes along with relaxation and meditation at the end of every class. We LOVE to theme our classes varying from Motivational Monday, Workout Wednesday to Rise & Stretch Saturday, we try to make our classes fun, energetic and challenging.

Faye also specialist in antenatal and postnatal Pilates for new and expecting mummies! If you would like to find out more, message us on Instagram or visit our website!

We hope to see you on the mat soon!
