Polina Banushkina

Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I’ve been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years and it has led me to understand that every client is unique with their own goals, lifestyle and fitness experience. For every goal, my role is to design and deliver a personalised programme that is rewarding, efficient and lifestyle changing.

What my Clients say:

From the first session I really enjoyed our training. You can instantly tell she is so motivating and passionate about helping people achieve their goals. During the first month I lost 2-3 kg in weight. I found my core strength improve really quickly and tone up, which I’m so happy about as it was an area I didn’t like about myself. Thanks Polina!
