Melanie Drayton

Career

I have always had a passion for exercise, my first gym I trained at was “Keith’s Gym” in Tamworth from which I started to teach a variety of classes.

I have worked in a variety of corporate fitness facilities (DeVere ‘The Belfry’, Marriott Hotel ‘The Marriott Forest of Arden’, SLM ‘Banana Fitness & Health’ but I much prefer to be in a smaller environment with a personal touch!

Alongside my fitness passion I have worked for an engineering company for the past 24 years, I pretty much get the best of both worlds with an office environment to being let loose with the weights but this does take a lot of my time morning and evening.

Our three kids play a big part in the fitness industry having a fitness instructor in the making, a boxer and a mini me :).

Learning new fitness techniques and knowledge is what I thrive on.

The best reward in my position is being able to help others achieve their Fitness and Health goals, seeing them change physically and mentally is so rewarding “ITS PRICELESSS”
