A SOUTH Tyneside woman has found the ‘root’ to success after swapping a career in dentistry to put fitness first.
Louise Scott combined her role as a dental nurse in Gosforth with her own business, called Witness the Fitness, after qualifying as a personal trainer over a year ago.
But after receiving a flood of calls from residents keen on getting fit, she has dedicated herself full-time to the borough’s health.
Louise had worked in the dental profession for a decade but was determined to cut her teeth as a trainer.
The 30-year-old, from Brass Thill Way in South Shields, said: “When I passed my personal training exams I combined it with my work as a dental nurse.
“But I was doing 45 hours a week and was drained when I was getting home from work.
“I was having to turn down a lot of calls from people wanting personal training so I decided to give it a go and become a full-time personal trainer. I now have 12 classes all over South Shields.”
A former gymnast, Louise has been hoping to turn her passion for fitness into a career for years.
She added: “I had a lot of help from my parents, who gave me a lot of financial support to go full-time as a personal trainer.
“The sessions are catered to the individual. I have a buggy boot camp where I work with mums and a children’s boot camp.
“I work with kettle-bells, dumb-bells, boxing gloves, whatever is best for each individual client.
“I have people coming to sessions as young as 17 or 18, up to their 50s and 60s.
Louise has helped one woman lose three stone in four months with regular sessions, while another shed two stone in three months.
Many sessions are held outdoors, including at Marine Park, with the mix of fresh air and exercise proving a big hit.
