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...
