About Pangaea Fitness & Training

Pangaea Training - Louise Grafton Mitchell

Pangaea Fitness & Training was created by Louise when she decided to branch out into the community with her classes and personal training sessions. ‘Pangaea’ pronounced ‘pan-gee-ah’ was actually the name of the last super continent when all of the continents, countries and islands that we know today were brought together as this one super continent. Louise felt that this would be a fitting name to reflect the concept of bringing ‘health & fitness’ together as one complements the other.

New Instuctor

Due to the expansion of Pangaea Fitness & Training a new member of the Team, Alice Groom, will be starting her journey in the Health & Fitness world. Alice successfully pased the Exercise to Music Course in November and she will start teaching classes in April 2016 on Wednesday evenings and here's a little introduction to Alice from the lady herself!

Alice Groom

I'm a twenty-something event designer working for a London Florist, who, for some reason, loves nothing more than doing a blast of press-ups or even worse Burpees...I know it sounds bizarre but for someone who could barley attempt a press up, let alone know what a Burpee was I could finally, after months of trying, do ten of them in a row without flopping to the ground in despair! I loved the feeling of achieving something I thought I would never be able to do, something that really appealed to me when I got into Teaching; working with people to achieve their goals, whether weight related, to tone up or just to relieve stress.I have always been a very active person with a passion for taking part in exercise, but at the same time love nothing more than a lazy day binge watching films, oh and Sweets!! Exercise is fun, energising and rewarding so take part and get reaching your goals, no matter how small!
