I have over 10 years experience working in the Fitness Industry during which time I have continued to gain valuable knowledge by working to gain Level 4 Exercise Specialist recognition through the Register of Exercise Professionals. I decided to leave the Fitness Suite environment to offer a more personal service due to the fact that I enjoy working closely with my clients so they can see their results. I am also able to give them my full support which doesn’t happen within the gym setting often. That’s why I decided to start my own company called Everybody Fitness as I wanted to provide fitness to everybody.
During my time as an instructor I have worked with clients of all ages from primary schools to clients well into their 80’s. I have also been fortunate enough to work with Cardiac Rehab, GP Referral clients and the MS Society and continue to do so.
I work hard to provide classes that change the way our clients look at their training not only during the class but in their own time, providing them with new and interesting ways in which they can train.
We are based in Ross-on-Wye offering a variety of fitness classes, click on the links above for more information.

I would like to give a big thank you to not only Shelley for her dedication, but to her and all the ladies and men who spurred me on, and made me laugh even when I didn’t think I had another breath left inside of me.
Most of us had never met before and there was a complete range of abilities and sizes of all different backgrounds but Shelley had us all working together and focused on one goal – to work as hard as we could and become fitter.
As a lady who loves her food, I was slightly anxious at the beginning, but not for long. Shelley fostered a great team spirit, and a great atmosphere (with only slight heckling from the opposite team when we were occasionally split).
I now know that I can do it, even if I need a gentle push sometimes. Shelley was always there with encouragement. Thank you.
When I started PT with Shelley I needed to get fit and get active.
Shelley assessed my fitness levels quickly and smoothly introduced me to different types of exercises and fitness. We completed circuits, boot camps and Boxercise. The encouragement Shelley offers is amazing, she puts you at ease whilst you having to put in maximum effort. Quickly I found myself getting fitter, toning up and feeling better about myself. Having had a tough time keeping positive with my mental health, the PT has made me more positive and energetic. After a few months we set a goal to start running. Running was hard to start off with, I could not even run a mile. A 5k run seemed like a hundred miles. Over 4 months and training with Shelley I am about to run in the Cardiff Half Marathon and raise money for a brilliant charity. We have been completing training runs, hill runs, interval training, sprints and finally I achieved something I never thought I would by running 13 miles. My PT sessions with Shelley are always varied, always hard work, and rewarding. After every session I feel 100% better than I did when I started. Amazing service, value for money & lovely person!
I have been recovering from a cruciate ligament injury of which training has been tailored to suit me and rehabilitate my injury. Through unique training exercises i have improved not only knee strength but also balance, co-ordination and flexibility.
Since starting the classes, I’ve noticed a big improvement in my fitness level and I also feel a lot stronger and more confident. Everyone is really friendly and you don’t feel intimidated like you do in some other gyms/classes. Also Shelley’s diet tips and information on how the body/muscles etc work are really useful!

I have be involved with boxing from an early age so when my partner (who is a regular to the evening classes) asked me along one night to the boxfit class, I really didn’t know what to expect but I have been hooked (excuse the pun) ever since and now attend all the classes. It’s not just a class, it’s a way of meeting new friends and we regularly do social events together. We also have a coffee (well tea in my case) after the classes.
Since joining Everybody Fitness in Feb 2010, I have made many new friends and have become much more confident in myself. From attending boxfit, Legs Bums & Tums, and Circuit Training and asking Shelley for diet advice, my stamina core strength and overall fitness have increased tremendously and I am much more toned than I used to be! The classes are tailored to everyone’s individual fitness levels, so it’s always a good workout which never ceases to be fun!
