Lorraine Thompson


I grew up in a small village in Essex. Growing up I loved all things sporty and played on various teams at school and University.  I studied Sport and Leisure management at University as I always knew I wanted to be involved with sport & exercise in some way.  My 1st job after University was as a Sports Development Officer in Cambridge. It was my dream job.


I then applied for a job which was a great opportunity that I never really thought I could get. It was a big step up being a Sports Development Manger in a large Health and Fitness club. This job came with much more responsibility and a massive team of people under me.  


It was working here that I first discovered  group fitness and it lead me to pursue my passion in the Health and Fitness Industry. Learning to push myself has really helped me get where I am today. 

I had my little boy Ayden in 2008 and at the same time began to grow my own fitness business before eventually going full time self employed.  

​Below is a little more about me, my own journey, and how I can better help you!

Saffron Walden Fitness


I  have always felt driven to help others in their health and fitness journeys. I trained and gained my fitness qualifications starting back in 2004. Over the years I have completed many more specific qualifications like my Diploma in Mat based Pilates, pre and post natal exercise, Mental Health Awareness and Level 3 Nutrition.

By the time I was fully self-employed I had built a very successful fitness business including a bootcamp and Pilates business.  

I have been teaching many different forms of group fitness classes over the years. Including Les mills Body Combat, Body Pump and Body Attack.  Beach Body qualified in Insanity, Turbo kick and P90X.  Ive also been teaching clubbercise, spin, boxercise, Pound Fit, Metkon, Yoga, Kettlebells, circuits. You name it I can teach it.

I am qualified in Education and training and I am an Assessor. My passion is to pass onto others my experience and knowledge of the health and fitness Industry.

I am the creator/owner of Saffron Walden Fitness. A group fitness studio which ran for 6 successful years. We sadly had to close our doors due to COVID-19 but we re launched in a new venue and we are still going to strong today. 

I have also created an online fitness business which continues to grow and grow and allows me to continue to share and help others in their fitness journeys. 


Family to me is everything. I couldn't have done what I do if I didn't have the support from Matt, Ayden and my family.  I have know matt for nearly 20 years and we have been together for 16 years. We have our lovely boy Ayden who is now 14 years old. They are my world. We also have 2 cockerpoo's  Dexter and Maisie and I love nothing more then walking them and being a fur baby mummy.
