Hayley Coe

Business Owner & Lead Instructor

When I launched my first Zumba class 7 years ago, I would never have imagined the opportunities it would give me. The opportunity to connect to a community of inspiring, like-minded individuals who wanted to have fun and get fit!

 

Originally from Inverness, I moved to London and studied at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. The daughter of a former Latin and ballroom champion, my mum has more swagger in her hips than I do in my pinky! Despite this, I still managed to shake ‘what ma mamma gave me’ and started to build my Zumba classes up rapidly.

 

‘Zumba Hillingdon’ has been my company for 7 years and after qualifying as a personal trainer and adding STRONG by Zumba to my timetable, the decision to expand and offer more to my clients was a natural progression.

 

Launching ‘CoeActive Fitness’ with the support of my present client base has been especially poignant, because being an instructor, it’s not about me, it’s about you. A fitness class should be judgment-free, supportive and motivating. If I have achieved these 3 vital components, then I have achieved what I set out to do which was, “To make everyone feel like individuals of importance to me, themselves and the ‘CoeActive Fitness’ community”. After all, co-active means ‘to act together’.

 

 

Building my team was incredibly important and I have chosen instructors who not only have the highest standard of teaching abilities but align themselves with my principles and beliefs.

 

 

I look forward to meeting you in class!

Through my journey of discovering fitness over the last few years, I’ve discovered the importance in maintaining a healthy balance between the mind, body and soul. This newfound knowledge helped me unlock a higher level of happiness and fitness through dance and yoga.

 

After five years of pursuing my hobby of Ballroom and Latin dancing, I gained an appreciation for self-expression, the discipline and fluidity of movement. Along the way, I decided to swap my heels and fancy dresses for leggings and trainers! Inspired by my wonderful teachers & instructors combined with my love for the mind and body interaction, I decided to become a Zumba and Yoga Instructor. I was excited to bring something meaningful, fun, restorative and creative into my lifestyle through dance and fitness.

 

Practising Yoga allows me to find balance, create strength and reconnect to my body. It has provided me with a platform for understanding and appreciating the art of stillness when I need calm, but also a place of energy when I need uplifting.

 

I love the freedom of Zumba! Fully immersed and enjoying the moment, interpreting the moves to the music in my own way and style. It’s my happy hour, where I can let myself go.

 

Being an instructor provides me with the opportunity to give fitness, enjoyment, balance and motivation to others, just as my teachers gave to me. It’s a way of me giving back and sharing my passion for Zumba and Yoga with others. I look forward to working for ‘CoeActive Fitness’ and becoming a part of a growing community.

Damien Oakley

CoeActive Fitness Instructor

My name is Damien and having been involved in fitness since 2008, I am super excited to be joining the CoeActive team.

 

At school, I was never particularly ‘sporty’ and this resulted in me becoming disinterested in being active. Sadly, this had the negative affect of me gaining an unhealthy amount of weight, this then led to a lack in confidence and low self-esteem.

 

Joining a gym, I was encouraged to participate in a group fitness class. The instructor was so engaging and supportive, I instantly felt comfortable and I really enjoyed the class. My confidence grew as my weight reduced. Wanting to share my passion for fitness, I became a group fitness instructor and now I can encourage and support members in class the way I was.

 

My key strength is being understanding. I know how daunting it can be to attend a fitness class and I strive to alleviate any fears members may have through support and making sure they have loads of fun in class. My energy is regarded as infectious which I pride, after all, life is short and it should be full of movement and as much fun as possible!

Welcome the CoeActive Team!
