I run fitness classes in Hazel Grove as well as online in my VIP online fitness studio in a private Facebook group. With my membership you have a choice of attending classes face to face, online, or both as per my Keep Fit with Paula timetable.  The online classes are live and also recorded so you can enjoy a workout at a time that suits you. There are pre-recorded workouts to choose from as well, including 10, 15 and 20 minute workouts.

My Mission…
I will help educate my clients into making and achieving lifestyle changes in both exercise and nutrition as well as motivating and supporting  them to achieve their goals in body fitness.


I have taught classes at Spindles Health Club, Britannia Hotel, Offerton and Life Leisure, Stockport Sports Village.  I cover for other Health Clubs, ie Life Leisure Hazel Grove/Avondale and have taught various fitness classes at various companies – Trolex, Hazel Grove, Alexandra Primary School, Edgeley, Johnson Controls, Stockport and All Saints C of E, Marple.  I teach children from early school age to teenagers – they seem to love Zumba and it’s a great way to get them exercising in a fun environment. I have taught Zumba at Hazel Grove High School to Year 7/8 and Torkington Primary School – Year 2.

I provide packages for businesses who want to provide fitness training as well as health and wellness for staff.
