Find out more about Shelley from Strong Living Personal Training
I'm Shelley May Buxey, founder of Strong Living Personal Training, and the HIITster company, currently operating in London and Portsmouth.
My journey into the health and fitness industry began with a passion for netball and athletics. I was fortunate enough to play regionally for South England — an experience which taught me the demands of high-performance sports. This experience led me into the world of health and fitness.
I studied Sport Science for the next three years, achieving a BSc degree at the University of Brighton. Having obtained substantial knowledge, I took on the role of Sport Science Lecturer at City College Brighton and Hove.
Wanting to become more specialised as a personal trainer, I targeted my business towards team sports, fitness challenges, and weight loss — with the focus on functional training. I lead an educating career with David Lloyd as a personal trainer for two years, proving successful results for many clients along the way. I wanted to combine my two new interests, leading me to my current role with Premier International Training, the leading fitness training provider. I work as a fitness tutor, delivering and assessing personal training and CPD courses, ranging from studio cycling, suspension training, exercise to music, and sports massage.
Teaching students how to become effective personal trainers made me think: I need to join the movement! I'm now back home on the south coast of England, where I’m available for personal training sessions.
