Talisa Cotton

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can i help you improve your health?

After training professionally in dance since the age of 11, Talisa believes that fitness is much more then lifting weights, holding planks and running on treadmills. Incorporating her dance background into her training, Talisa has found so many different ways to train the body and discover the benefits delivered interns of strength, tone and physique.
Everyone is unique and everyone’s work out should be tailored to suit their needs and not all people will be attracted to the generic gym experience.
