About Me

My name is Cari Brearley and i have been working in the fitness industry for over 14 years...

My History

I am currently working as a freelance instructor at David Lloyd Cambridge and run Cari Brearley Fitness. I have 2 young children, Isabella who is 5 and Riely who is 18 months. Before having children I worked at David Lloyd as Studio Manager since it's opening 2004.

I decided to put my qualifications and experience together to create Fit-Buggies as i wanted to exercise myself whilst still looking after Isabella. Fit-Buggies is perfect! Babies are with their mummies in their buggies, and mummies get to exercise, meet new friends and everyone gets some fresh air!!

I teach 10 classes a week at the moment ranging from Aerobics to Body Pump, Aqua to Body Balance and absolutely love it! It is a fantastic career and a great industry to be part of. I have taught so many great people and the rewards are amazing. Helping people to achieve a better standard of life through exercising is so positive.

I set up a Mature Movers Group at David Lloyd which was one of the most rewarding classes. We created a wonderful social goup for 30 ladies and had 4 social events a year including christmas and summer parties, rounders, line dancing and a Race for Life team. I also gained lots of Grandmas!!! Most of the ladies now attend regular classes such as Spin and Yoga and even come to my Legs Bums and Tums and Body Pump classes which is brilliant. This is something they definitely would not have done 5 years ago.

Charity Events have always been something I thoroughly enjoy organising and taking part in. Race for life is one event my friends and I participate in every year, Chariots of Fire, Fun Runs and my greatest achievement yet (other than Isabella and Riely!!) was the 2007 London Marathon. The atmosphere was incredible and the whole experence is one I shall treasure forever.
