Zoe Baker – Co-founder of FitState

Zoe Baker

I’m a busy mum of 2, and passionate believer in leading a healthy, well-balanced lifestyle in order to enjoy life to the full and have the to energy to keep up with today’s demands of work and family life. We started FitState because we want to help and show you that it is possible to juggle busy lives whilst maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle through making the right food choices to managing time to fit in some exercise.

It all started when I returned to work after having my youngest when my sister fell ill. It was this and being a busy working mum that kick-started me to follow my passion of fitness & wellbeing.

I’ll be honest I have been all sorts of shapes and sizes over the years and finally I have found the perfect place.

I’m now happy with my weight, my bottom, legs and arms and I have an unbelievable amount of energy. I don’t believe in dieting or excessive, obsessive approaches but what I do believe in is doing what you can, when you can, feeling really good with what you have achieved and above all ‘have fun’ doing it.

I still have goals and work towards them with excitement in the knowledge that I will achieve them.

I am a City & Guilds Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer & Advanced Fitness Instructor, Level 3 qualified Nutrition & Weight Management, Level 3 GP Exercise Referral, Boxercise Instructor and a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals. I am adding to my skills all the time and currently studying Nutrition for Sport & Exercise.

Having worked in advertising for 17yrs longing to change career for something I would feel passionate about, it was actually being diagnosed with Lymphoma that changed my life in more ways than one.  I was told to hold back on the exercise, but I joined a new gym and also ensured I exercised in the great outdoors every day, it kept me sane!  I felt exhilarated, empowered, and it definitely kept me going both physically and emotionally.

I left the desk job and am now a City & Guilds Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer & Advanced Fitness Instructor and a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals. With specialism’s in Ante & Nost Natal, Core-Strength & Stability, Circuit training & Padwork for PT’s. I am currently adding to my skills and studying level 3 Nutrition & Weight Management, GP Exercise Referral & Jenny Burrell – 3rd Age Woman.

I want to share my passion and belief in the health benefits of regular exercise and adopting a healthy lifestyle to reduce risk of illness, obesity, depression and stress, now so commonly associated with today’s busy lives.

At forty ‘something’, and being a busy working mum I am now healthier, happier and fitter than I have ever been,  I want to help you achieve your fitness and lifestyle goals through a motivational, inspirational, realistic fitness and nutritional approach through either group or personal training.
