We draw inspiration this month from one of our students, Mandy Smead. Mandy is owner and operator of her “dream job” Pegasus Training Holidays, which combines her love of fitness and holidays. She and her business partner run up to 8 European destination training holidays a year, and take anywhere from 6 to 10 people each time. A typical “Pegasus” day includes  3 or more different group training activities, along with a healthy team cooking exercise. 

Mandy gave up her  career as an office worker in the city of London to be a full-time mum of 3. Her passion for fitness never waned, and drove her to climb Mount Kilimanjaro,  raising over £40,000 for cancer research. She did her first formal course at Drummond Education as an Exercise to Music instructor, and hasn’t stopped there! Next she qualified as an Indoor Spinning instructor, and now she’s currently working towards her Pilates instructor diploma with us. Oh – and as for her day job, she’s the full-time manager of her local gym! Her energy, passion, and drive is admirable (& enviable!) You can find her on Instagram at @pegasus training holidays. The next time you’re thinking of booking a holiday, get in touch with Mandy and give Pegasus a go!
