2 minutes with Amy Chambers

Amy joined us in 2011 to run the fitness sessions at our Vassiliki centre and we haven’t looked back since, she is now manager and resident fitness guru of our activity-packed centre in Vassiliki. Growing up in Cyprus, it was there that her love of watersports and triathlons began. During university, she competed in the British Triathlon Championships and then went on to teach kitesurfing, windsurfing, and diving in various locations around the world. Throughout this time, her love of all things fitness-orientated has continued to grow – she is a Level 3 Personal Trainer, spinning and circuits instructor and holds various swimming and aqua qualifications. Amy has a wonderfully fun and realistic approach to fitness and loves teaching at all levels. But don’t worry, she won’t be enrolling anyone in a boot camp, after all, our philosophy of doing as little or as much as you like always applies!
