A SALISBURY entrepreneur is celebrating 10 years of bringing fitness classes to communities.

Alex Taylor started Girls Love Fit (GLF) to provide fitness sessions tailored for women from yoga and pilates to Zumba,Total Tone and HIIT training to name just a few.

Speaking about the 10th anniversary, the mum-of-three said: “It is crazy really. It doesn’t feel like five minutes ago that we started.

“I can’t believe it has been 10 years.”

“One of my sole goals with Girls Love Fit was not only creating an opportunity for all women to be able to workout in the community but it was also about creating a team of instructors to support each other,” she added.

“People have always been happy to use and support their local facilities. You are giving back to the community and creating a service that people are wanting to do.”

Over the years Alex, who also runs Kids Love Fit, and GLF have been nominated and won various awards. Alex won the Women in Business award at the South Wilts Business Awards and in 2017 was also finalist to be in the line-up of BBC’s The Apprentice.

Girls Love Fit has had to adapt to fitness trends as well as responding to the needs of the community. The coronavirus pandemic has seen this evolution in action with classes rolled out online.

Alex says Girls Love Fit has built its own “little fitness community” over the years - evolving with the times, adding: “It is a constant evolution of Girls Love Fit to adapt to the demand and making it specific to Salisbury.”

“We are all very passionate about fitness and people and our local community,” she said. “I’m lucky I get to do something I’m really passionate about and really love and to be surrounded by people who feel the same.”

Girls Love Fit celebrates its 10th anniversary on October 21 and to mark the milestone has a special offer on classes.

Alex said: “I am so proud of my team of fitness instructors and all the wonderful women who have enjoyed exercise with us over the past 10 years. Thank you Salisbury for all your wonderful support.”
