Anna Kosciuk

Teaches: BARRE

This little motyiku (butterfly in Polish) is, simply put, a ball of beautiful energy. She's a Sports Scientist (MSc) who specialises in movement biomechanics and has focused much of her (daytime) work on investigating runners' susceptibility to sport injuries (and how to get them back on their feet) and developing wearable tech to help runners improve their athletic performance. She also has a BSc in Sport Biomedicine and Nutrition (one must combine healthy eating alongside an active lifestyle!) and is currently working on her Personal Trainer Level 3 qualification. 

Anna's boundless energy and bubbly character make for a hilarious and delightful ride on the #paintrain, and has even led her to the big stage; having trained as an opera singer. (Talented bish.)​

Holly Capehorn

Teaches: BARRE

Holly is a professional dancer, singer and actress and - after graduating with a diploma in musical theatre and then soon after the pandemic putting auditions on pause - she was promptly looking for a way to combine her love of dance and fitness. Cue falling in love with barre. You can be sure to feel the barre burn all over in Holly’s classes and she’ll always encourage you to push through for those last reps when it’s feeling impossible. Also, her hair is FAB. Everyone says so.

Maddie Harper

Teaches: BARRE

After graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in Musical Theatre from Arts Educational School, Maddie went into the West End to take part in several award-winning productions. She also, subsequently, discovered a love of fitness and the way it made her feel. She combines the grace of a dancer with the ferocity of a fitness pro, and the combination is, well... fire. (Especially in those cheeks.)

Maddie knows how to put you through your paces and believes that Barre is the perfect fitness class to target every little muscle in the body. Her lively and fun approach is a welcome distraction from that full-body burn so - even though her classes are challenging - they are also REALLY FUN. Maddie believes that nothing worth having comes easy and she will make you WORK for every endorphin you release...
