Eva Borbely

Fitness Instructor & Personal Trainer

Qualifications – First Aid, Exercise to Music Instructor, L2 Group Indoor Cycling, Capoeira and Box Aerobic instructor, Level 2 Gym Instructor, Level 3 Personal Trainer & Level 3 Matt Pilates.

My job is my passion. I knew from 14 years old that I was going to be a trainer one day. After doing 6 years traditional Kyokushin Karate in Hungary I got my first qualification and I have become unstoppable and obsessed. I also entered into the Fitness Model Category in Hungary which was organised by WBPF Hungary. This competition required lots of determination and self-control.

After I came to England, I passed all of my qualifications again in English as they were not internationally recognised and i’m really proud of this – as it was very challenging doing it in a second language. No matter who you are, where you have come from, you can reach your goals because where there is a will there’s a way and I’m here to help you.

I have been teaching classes for 14 years and I can’t imagine ever doing anything else. My aim is to show people that they can achieve anything with the right attitude, determination and passion.

Training and physical exercise has always been a hobby of mine and when I’m not training myself, I enjoy helping others to reach their fitness goals no matter how big or small.

Through playing sport myself to studying a health-based degree, I understand how fitness works both physically and mentally and like to apply this knowledge to myself and others on a day-to-day basis.
