My name is Hannah Quinn and I have been a Personal Trainer in the Brighton and Hove area since 2010. I am the owner and founder of m2m fitness. The ‘m2m’ stands for ‘Motivate to Move’ as it is my job as a Personal Trainer 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, 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! All you have to do it commit to the process and stay consistent.
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 and Pole Fitness (Dance) Instructor. 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.
In 2016 I competed in my first body building competition and then again in 2019. I loved this new challenge in my own fitness and I believe it has made me a better Personal Trainer because I learnt so much about the process and how the mind and body work. I hope to compete again soon, but I still have many new fitness challenges to explore first!
