Yolanda Gratton has always been passionate and enthusiastic about health and fitness. Following her first swimming lesson at the age of 5, she became a strong, competitive swimmer and soon found a love for most sporting and outdoor activities.
After qualifying as a teacher in 1995, she has motivated and inspired children and adults alike, passing on creativity and her love of sport. Yolanda Gratton went on to become a Headteacher and it was during this time she recognised the importance of exercise in order to maintain a good work/life balance. This led her to run her first marathon across the Polar Ice Caps in Greenland where she discovered her talent for running. Having caught ‘the bug’, she followed this up by successfully completing the 49 mile classic Swiss Alpine Marathon. Now coached by a former winner of the London Marathon, she continues to progress her running with the aim of completing a sub 3 hour marathon.
Yolanda Gratton has combined her love of fitness and teaching skills to become qualified in Personal Training, Fitness Instruction, Sports Nutrition, Studio Cycling, Circuits and Gym Based Boxing. Yolanda’s creativity and dedication to outdoor fitness ensures a varied and fun programme, providing motivation to achieve health and fitness goals.
