At the heart of Grace Turner’s practice is the fact that, quite simply, our bodies are built for functionality – but the fitness and beauty industry too often concentrate on unrealistic ideals over achievable, sustainable health.
As a former professional dancer, Grace’s driving force to make a difference through body-positive personal training came from her experience of the dance industry’s issues around mental and physical health, eating disorders and body perfectionism.
“On top of the pressures of media and social media, modern life negatively impacts everything from our posture to our eating habits,” says Grace. “For some of us, that means getting weaker and less healthy every day. I just don’t accept it has to be that way – there’s never a better time to take control of our bodies than right now!”
Ditching bad habits and building sustainable fitness habits, with a focus on strength training, mean a strong chance better health now and less of the discomfort that can occur in later life.
