Lydia

LYDIA REYNOLDS

FITNESS AND GROUP EXERCISE INSTRUCTOR

I joined 3-1-5 on the Front Of House team in 2019. My background in dancing and cheerleading means I’ve always been passionate about fitness and being part of a team. The atmosphere of 3-1-5 being a family run business and so positive and supportive appealed to me straight away, I knew this was where I wanted to be! 

Almost 2 years later, I have now moved over to the Gym Team having completed my Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Les Mills Body Pump qualifications. I am currently working on my Level 3 Personal Training qualification.

 

I would never have achieved this without 3-1-5 and I feel so lucky everyday for these opportunities. I hope I can use my own personal experiences and developments to inspire and encourage our members

The health and fitness industry has completely changed my life and I hope that I can share that passion through my work and coaching.”

 

Fun fact – I’m completely obsessed with Mayonnaise and I will eat in on literally ANYTHING!

Favourite quote – ‘Do something today that your future self with thank you for’

Favourite destination – 3-1-5 because its the place I spend all my time! Joking, New York and Florida

Favourite Food – Boiled eggs!

 

Ethos – Realising that to achieve everything I wanted I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone. Although being out of it is a scary place at first, this is where the best kind of changes happen and I wouldn’t be where I am now without that push.
