Florence was once a client at MANOR Victoria, in the early days when MCPwas the Yard! She has always stood out with her willingness to smash burpees and work hard; she’s found a home alright and is a pleasure to have her, now as part of the team :).
Flo will be coaching On Demand and at SE1 when we open in May.
Here’s an intro to Flo!..
What’s your fitness background?
From group classes to Muay Thai, to running the London marathon to functional fitness and CrossFit – you name it, I’ve tried it! I’ve been focusing on building my strength and conditioning for the last few years, more specifically in CrossFit in the last two years. I love challenging myself to high intensity and skilled workouts. I’m now a L2 instructor and L3 PT, looking to specialise in Olympic weightlifting in the future.
How did you get introduced to MANOR?
I was a keen class passer who wanted to get a real good sweat. I worked in Victoria for a while, so used to go to capacity and yard work – I loved how no-nonsense and challenging they were and the community at SW1 – there’s just nothing like it elsewhere.
What can MANOR members expect from you?
High energy to keep you coming back for more – namely Drum n bass and house to wake you up in the mornings. I am known to love a burpee or two…
Three words to describe your style of coaching?
Energetic, friendly and attentive
Who or what keeps you motivated?
My goals list by my wardrobe. I’m a geek for lists and look forward to checking off each goal one by one – and only when I put in the work will I do so.
What’s your favourite cheat meal?
Any Japanese food – is it a cheat meal if I treat myself many times in a week…
What’s the craziest challenge you’ve ever endured?
Every competition I’ve done has been a challenge, but there’s nothing like the crowds at London Marathon. The atmosphere at home turf is like no other.
Do you have a daily mantra?
“It ain’t much, but it’s honest work” – meme aside, I do believe that every bit of effort counts to getting to where you want to be.
Song of the moment?
Not In Love – Franky Wah (feat. LOWES)
North, south, east or west?
