Wendy Nutman

I became a fully accredited fitness instructor in 2004 gaining my Exercise to Music qualification with YMCA Fit, however I have been attending gyms and exercise classes for over 20 years! Since qualifying, I have been teaching a variety of classes in gyms throughout North and Northwest London, training private clients in their homes, as well as working for Jane at JCW instructing the local community, which I really enjoy the most!

I feel that safety, enjoyment and inclusion all go hand in hand in a group exercise environment, and so I always offer multi-ability choices for participants. Hopefully, this ensures that everyone who is taking part has an option which will maximize their exercise experience. I am very aware that each person has their own reasons for coming to group exercise classes and I try to encourage everyone on a general level by keeping motivational levels high.

Besides Exercise to Music, my other qualifications include step choreography, stability ball / BOSU training, fitness pilates, freestyle pump, and teaching teens (11 – 16). I am fully qualified with EXTEND, as an instructor of movement to music for Seniors. I am fully insured and am a member of REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals).

Like Jane (and sometimes even with her), I attend masterclasses and continuing education courses to be sure that I am up to date with the latest trends in the fitness industry. Personally, I have a 17 year old daughter and an 14 year old son, who keeps me busy when I am not teaching! Fitness has always been my passion, and I love to be able to share my passion with others!

Peter Baldock

I am a full time dance and fitness professional, and have been in the industry for 20 years. I am pleased to be back in the fitness industry after a break of about five years (I have just been dancing in the meantime). I teach many types of dance both in a class setting and through one-to-one lessons, including salsa, tango, cha cha cha, jive, ballroom, rumba and contemporary.

I appeared on the original "Come Dancing" which was hosted by Angela Rippon, and have won the Reebok National Aerobic Championships. I was also a British team member in Latin American Dance. As well as teaching I still perform Argentine Tango with my dance partner Fabiana at venues all over London including the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.


I am really inspired by the fresh approach of Zumba, a solid hour of fun latino-inspired dance using the whole body with the motto "Ditch the workout and join the party!"


I have also become my own best testimonial having lost 2 stone in weight since I started teaching Zumba 6 months ago for JCWFitness, cool or what?!


My Tuesday lunchtime adventure takes all the fun of Zumba but with the addition of retro, motown and disco music. The class is called "Peters Disco Grooves" and everyone is welcome to come and join the party!

Thanx Folks : )

Rachel Spain

After 20 years training and working as a professional dancer around the world, I settled in London and found the fitness industry. Whilst working in various gyms in London as a studio coordinator, personal trainer and group exercise instructor I discovered Pilates, and after attending many classes I realised this was the direction I wanted my career to follow.


I believe that it is healthy to keep learning and I continuously attend workshops and courses to develop my teaching skills.


I am fascinated with anatomy and postural analysis, and like to encourage my clients to explore their own bodies to improve their body awareness. Acknowledging that we are all very different, my classes will focus on each individual practicing safely and to their own personal limits. I love to use inspirational music and creative sequences are always part of my classes. I am keen to help people at an individual level and guarantee that everyone in my classes will get individual help and attention from me to help them progress and improve during every class.

Jo Gledhill

My background is in dance, diving, yoga and dance teaching and I started practising Pilates after a shoulder injury several years ago. I enjoyed it so much and saw results so quickly that I decided to train to be a Pilates instructor with the Pilates Foundation. Pilates is a great way to increase flexibility and improve functional movement; strengthen and tone all of the body; increase body awareness and balance; and RELAX! As a teacher, I particularly like focusing on the basic principles and the core techniques that are important to facilitate the most effective exercise, as well as incorporating power and strength movements with stretching sequences and flow.

Lisa Dunn

I am dedicated to the study, practice and sharing of yoga. I first discovered the physical aspect of yoga – asana (postures) – 9 years ago and from the first sun salutation it was love! It immediately alleviated stress from my fast-paced job in television production, and also revisited a forgotten connection to my body as a child gymnast. My personal practice is Ashtanga Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, and Dynamic yoga and I have done training with teachers including John Scott and David Swenson. But my main teacher is of course the practice!

I design and teach classes which are energizing and breath-focused that encourages strength, flexibility and awareness, leaving you feeling worked-out, calm, centred and relaxed. My intention is to encourage and empower students to find their own yoga, and to listen to the language of their own bodies, minds and spirit.

Emma Charvet

I have been practicing yoga for fifteen years and am qualified to teach Vinyasa Flow as well as Yoga for Children and Mum & Baby Yoga. My classes are dynamic and flowing – focusing on breath and alignment, and incorporating deep relaxation to re-energise and restore the mind and body.

I went to my first yoga class aged eight and have since been on a journey of discovery that has included martial arts, Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga, before discovering my passion for Vinyasa Flow and Acrobatic Yoga. I was inspired to teach by the birth of my children –wanting to nurture their natural flexibility and love of movement. I believe Yoga can transform lives simply by helping us re-connect with our bodies and our breath to re-discover the freedom of movement that we were born with.

Yvonne Blake

Having been a passionate fitness class participant for over 10 years, I decided to take the plunge and train as a fitness instructor in 2008. I haven’t looked back.


My love of fitness and a healthy lifestyle has steered me to build expertise in a variety of disciplines. I regularly teach LBT, Pump, Zumba, Balance, Combat, Body Conditioning, Spin, Step and Circuits in both central and north London gyms as well as at JCW.


I am a Level 3 Personal Trainer, training private clients at a fitness studio or in the comfort of their own homes. Nutritional advice is also part of this service. I am also qualified in delivering fitness programmes for children aged 5-16 and run fun–filled kids parties, whatever the occasion. I am fully insured and a member of REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals).

Fitness can make the difference and has so many benefits for all.  I have seen how powerful fitness can be, not just for transforming your body but also in improving general wellbeing. Just 15 minutes a day can enable healthy changes to your body and you will gain the physical benefits of working out, to help reach your goals.


I have positive energy and love to share my enthusiasm with both clients and class participants. I enjoy challenging and motivating people, helping them to increase their fitness levels and meet their objectives, while having fun along the way.


When I’m not teaching or training clients, I like to keep up to date with the latest trends in the fitness industry and continuing education courses. If you would like any further information on exercise, personal training or healthy eating, please do get in touch.

Manda Greenblatt

My first love affair with Yoga was at my local gym 10 years ago, I was instantly drawn to the practice for how it re-calibrated the way I felt not only on the outside but on the inside too. Practising yoga began to give me space in my day, a pause button, and opportunity to create that stop-gap between thought and action. Empowered, my body gradually began to feel stronger and more expansive. I was blown away by how we can positively influence our mind-body connection and wanted to share it with others.

With a background in Psychology I believe first hand in the potency of Yoga to transform and heal from the inside out. Essentially yoga brings me back into my centre, it is like coming home to my safe, warm, refuge, the place where “life is okay and I am okay”. On my mat I always feel safe to let go, take risks, fall over, get back up and all with a smile on my face and an open heart.


I am honoured and privileged to have learned from so many wise teachers from near and far. I have undertaken master classes, intensives and workshops with the following teachers Ana Forrest, Baron Baptiste, Bo Forbes, Bridget Kramer Woods, Elena Brower, Gurumukh, Jeff Phenix, Krishna Das, Max Strom, Nadia Narain, Seane Corn & Shiva Rea. I am deeply connected to the London Yoga community and draw particular inspiration from my teachers Nadia Narain, Kate Walker, Stewart Gilchrist & Cat Alip-Douglas.


My intention as a Vinyasa Flow teacher is to create a safe space for yoga practitioners to explore the ancient discipline in contemporary yet not compromised ways. My teaching incorporates the embodiment of strength, balance and serenity – encouraging all students, from all walks of life to start where they are, breathe, sweat, play, feel, tune-in. Find a meditative flow and optimal alignment in mind, body & spirit.

I started my career in the fitness industry when I had a contract at Barnet Football Club, where I played for the team. 

Since then (12 years ago) I have been in the fitness industry, managing the studio at The Laboratory Gym in Muswell Hill, teaching group fitness and also personal training. I have trained with some celebrities and in fact have made three fitness DVD’s with some of them including Claire Nasir (weather woman), Hannah Waterman (Eastenders) and Jennifer Ellison (Brookside). I have also trained with Josie Gibson (Big Brother winner). I also do sports specific personal training.

I compete in natural body building competitions, and can advise on training / nutrition to both men and women who want to train for results.

I’m also a Nike athlete, and teach classes in Nike retail outlet stores.

I love teaching interval and HIIT (high intensity interval training) together with functional core work as I believe this is the best way to get fit, shed fat and boost muscle tone.

Please contact me for info about personal training.

I look forward to seeing you at my class at JCW Fitness!
