Welcome to aliceclarefitness!
In 2018 I quit a highly pressured job in digital advertising sales to pursue my passion in sport and fitness. I qualified as a london personal trainer 4 years ago and now specialise in training athletes, training pre and post natal clients as well as a triathlon and Wattbike coach at Thirdspace.
As a personal trainer my aim is to help inspire, encourage and educate clients to reach their potential using functional forms of training, for their sport or life in general.
Sport as my passion
I’ve always been active, and mostly prefer to be outside cycling running or swimming. I love triathlon and in recent years completed 14km marathon swims, an ironman and competed for Team GB at the ITU World Championships in Denmark. Performance might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I aim to inspire others to find something active that makes them feel alive like triathlon does me.
