My name is Paula Thompson and I run Keep Fit with Paula, Kick Start Stockport and a distributor for Forever Living.  I am qualified to teach fitness classes as well as Level 3 Pilates, Fitness Pilates, Children aged 5-16 years and Level 3 Nutritional and Weight Management. I have a certification to teach Zumba, BrainFit, Fitness Pilates for Mums and Tots, Buggy Beat, SIT Fitness, Relaxation and Breathing and KS Extreme. I attend master classes and workshops to update my skills as a Fitness Instructor. I run Kick Start Stockport which is a health and wellness programme focusing on weight loss.

I normally run fitness classes in Hazel Grove but due to Covid-19 I am teaching online in my VIP online fitness studio in a private Facebook group. With my membership you normally have a choice of attending my classes face to face, online, or both as per my Keep Fit with Paula timetable. At the moment as per Government Guidelines I am teaching online only. 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.


As well as teaching my own classes in Hazel Grove, I teach 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 classes at Trolex, Hazel Grove as well as Alexandra Primary School, Edgeley to the staff  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.
