My name is Hannah Quinn and I am a Personal Trainer in the Brighton and Hove area and I am the owner and founder of m2m fitness. The ‘m2m’ stands for ‘Motivate to Move’ as it is our job as Personal Trainers to motivate you to move in the most effective and fun way to achieve your health and fitness goals and to support you through your fitness journey. I would like to tell you a little about my journey to working in the fitness industry. After spending most of my adult working life in an office being very sedentary I decided I wanted a change of career. I thought long and hard about the type of job that combined my passion for healthy living and a way to help people live happier, healthier lives. I looked into various jobs that would fit my criteria and this led me on a path to becoming a Personal Trainer. I have always been interested in health and fitness and this interest became particularly prominent in my life after having my children. I started thinking more about my own health and fitness as a parent and role model and how this affects my family. I started by researching the industry and finding out how I could be a part of it. My approach to personal training is to provide motivation, encouragement, inspiration and most importantly results! If you want a personal trainer who will do lots of shouting and screaming at you to get you moving then I am not for you! I will give you the support, expertise and results you need without the need to strain my voice. I am a Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and have also completed training in Nutrition, Training in Different Environments, Health and Fitness Testing, ViPR, TRX (suspension training), powerplate and Pre and Post Natal Exercise. In addition to this I am a qualified Kettlebell Instructor, Hula Hoop Instructor, Pole Fitness (Dance) Instructor and am also a running leader for UK Athletics. As you can see from my qualifications, I offer a wide range of different fitness options. I believe in keeping training varied, not only to keep your body challenged but also to prevent training becoming boring and stale. Please see detailed below some information about rest of the team:
My name is Richard Quinn and I have been involved with the running of m2m fitness for the past since 2010 taking kettlebell classes, arranging events and general support. When I was younger I was a keen rugby player but unfortunately a serious ankle injury put a stop to my rugby days.
I lost my passion for sport and fitness for a number of years until 6 years ago I decided to run the London Marathon to raise money for the MS Society. This charity is close to my heart because my mother has MS and I wanted to do something to raise money and awareness for this amazing charity and get fit at the same time. Little did I know then that this event would prompt me to embrace fitness into my life again, not just to help myself but be the beginning of my journey to working in the fitness industry.
I became qualified as a EKI (Extreme Kettlebell Instructor) and have been running evening kettlebell classes for m2m fitness since November 2012. I enjoyed the classes so much that I decided I wanted to be a bigger part of the fitness industry so decided I wanted to become a Personal Trainer to take my fitness career to the next level. I love motivating and helping people change their health and their life for the better.
My main areas of interest are strength and conditioning, weight loss and rehabilitation.
