A young fitness instructor is the new owner of a popular Leyburn gym.

Elise Westen is taking over Fitness4All after buying the business from founder Rob Bartlett.

The business will be called Your Fitness Needs from March.

Elise is a qualified personal trainer.

She said: “Your Fitness Needs was established in 2021 during lockdown when I was 19 years old and at my third year at college.

“I am a qualified level 4 personal trainer with many more qualifications such as nutrition, pre and post natal, training with adolescents, swim coach and teacher, as well as many more.

“Since lockdown I have been offering mobile personal training sessions, fitness classes and training plans around the dales.

“My partner, Cadno and I are very much looking forward to take over Fitness4All gym.”

The couple are looking to extend the opening hours, add more classes and update some equipment.

“We hope to build up the community and keep the gym going strong,” Elise added.
