Christine North – Minchella
Business ownerBSc (Hons), Cert Ed, Dip PT, Advanced Pilates & Fitness Practitioner, Back Care Specialist, Matwork Pilates
My career in fitness started with my love of sport and dance and led to undertaking a degree in Physical Activity Exercise and Health. I worked for the YMCA Training & Development for over 15 years as a Senior Development Officer, tutor and assessor and also worked for the RSA (now OCR) as an External Verifier.
In my ‘early’ teaching years I presented for Fitness Professionals, Exercise England and Leisure Plan Holidays. My passion for the fitness industry and education led me to set up Professional Fitness and Education with the sole aim of providing quality training courses in the North of England.
Although I primarily run the business these days I still believe in being proactive and lecture on some of the specialist personal trainer modules as well as practically teaching and undertaking personal training, also running the classes at The Studio
