A little about me....
Carla van Traa
I have been a Health and Fitness Professional since 1999, and I love it!
The National Association of Sports Medicine (NASM) are recognised as a world leader in personal training qualifications and in 2009 I qualified as a Cardiac Rehabilitation Specialist trainer, accrediting me with REPSs Level 4, the highest level achievable.
I specialise in helping women in all things related to movement and wellbeing. From personal training and Pilates; to offering real honest help to ladies with Pelvic Floor stress incontinence. For ladies undergoing or undergone a hysterectomy and tummy tucks; I can offer pre surgery training advice and support your return to movement with care and compassion . I encourange you to train and live life to the full through freedom of movement.
My own liefstyle plan includes Pilates and the gym. Away from the world of work I love to travel, mainly active wildlife based trips, I'm a qualified Scuba diver, ride a Ducati and I have an allotment to grow my own fruit and veggies. My weekends and time out are always filled with an activity - last year introducing White Water Rafting and Zip lining into the mix loved the rafting, hated the Zip!
I study and read all the time, knowledge and education is how I grow, and I pass it all on to you, I'm an enabler not just delivering orders of do this do that, it's a partnership...
