Gillian has been working in the fitness industry for 18 years. She started out as a volunteer at her local YMCA gym, then worked in different departments at various health clubs, and tutored Exercise to Music and Personal Training courses. Seven years ago, Gillian moved on to her current role of national group exercise manager at Virgin Active UK. She has written regularly for national and local media, and been involved with many first-to-market, group exercise-based initiatives and events, including a global world record attempt. Getting people participating in exercise and activity in a group-based environment is where her passion lies, and she believes that the social aspect of movement is the heart and soul of any exercise and well-being business. Gillian’s personal journey has led her to explore yoga, specifically Jivamukti, a method that encourages compassion for all beings.
