Michelle started teaching fitness classes in January 2006 when she gained her Exercise to Music qualification. She has a dance background, having danced since the age of 6, and likes to bring an element of that into her classes. Michelle is First Aid qualified, which comes in handy with her two accident prone children, whom she lives with in Maulden along with her husband, James.

She moved to Ampthill in April 2012 from Shrewsbury and has been with Cerisport as an instructor since 2013. Michelle now takes 7 of our main timetabled classes a week and also stands in for Ceri when she’s away. She loves the fun atmosphere that Cerisport has and is thrilled to be a part of the team.
Michelle is a qualified GP Referral Instructor. She also, alongside Ceri, teaches our Absolute Barre class (for those who have been a Ballet Dancer and for those who would like to!) and also Purestretch. Michelle’s enthusiasm knows no bounds – as anyone who comes to her class will testify to.
In the summer of 2018 Michelle took the decision to go “full time” with Cerisport. So from the beginning of September 2018 Michelle is not only an instructor with us but also our Business Manager.
Michelle is also available for any 121 Personal Training.


Lauren originally trained at Italia Conti School of Performing Arts, where she qualified with a professional diploma in musical theatre. She then went on to further training for one year at the London School of Musical Theatre.
Whilst at drama school, she found both her passion for fitness along side dance, which worked hand in hand. Her enjoyment of both meant that keeping fit became a passion. She has been teaching dance to children and adolecents for 3 years with My Theatre in Toddington and has recently qualified as an Exercise to Music Fitness Instructor, giving her a REPS qualification.

Lauren is a Purestretch Instructor having trained with Ceri. She takes regular classes with Cerisport and is available to us to cover classes also. She looks forward to developing as an instructor, under the support of the team at Cerisport and we are delighted to have her working with us.
