My Fitness Profile
My name is Sophia Thompson (aka Coco) and here’s a little bit about me...
Who Am I?
I am a wife, a mother of 3 beautiful children, a qualified personal trainer, pole fitness instructor, owner of Pole-A- Gise Dance and Fitness Ltd & GYMR Personal Training & Rehabilitation Ltd.
So how did I get into the fitness industry I hear you ask.......
Well, my journey began many years ago from my days of working within the health sector, to support and empower adults to make positive lifestyle changes through:
How Long Have You Been In The Fitness Industry?
As a pole instructor I have been training for 8 years on and off since 2013.
In term of teaching, I have been teaching for over 6 years.
As personal trainer I started my journey in 2016. However, didn’t qualify until 2018 due to life circumstances.
What Drives You?
As the driving force for the work I do, is based around being able to make a difference to the lives of the clients I work with. My approach is very simple.
I do not believe in quick fixes. However, with team work, patience, dedication, perseverance sprinkled with a bit of sweat mixed with a “can do” or “I will try” attitude”. I believe that my clients can make magic happen.
Being apart of the process of watching clients make positive transformations mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually is a
beautiful thing to see.
As a baby, I loved music. My mother use to tell me that when I was sleeping as a young child in my cot, I would wake up and start rocking to music as soon as a commercial would come on. This is probably why from the age of 8 years old to my teens, i’ve had a passion for music. From 2002 – 2013, I became a professional unsigned singer/song writer, by the name of Miss Coco Brown. As a result of this, I had the opportunity to work and perform with a variety of unsigned artists , as well as sing as a supporting act for a few UK artist. I also had the opportunity to work with a grammy & multi platinum producer and song writer by the name of Herb Middleton from the USA. Although I enjoyed my time as a musician. I really love my job as a fitness professional.
I am happy to announce that as of April 2021, I have had the honour of joining The Pole PT team. Not only is this a great opportunity for me to work along side the amazing Neola Wilby. It enable me to do the thing I love the most, empower and support learners to make positive lifestyle changes.
As of May 2021, I have also joined forces with the lovely Sally Brady, of Liberty Pole Dance Academy in Telford. As of this summer I will be working in conjunction, as one of their instructors.
Last but not least, I will also be collaborating with the one and only Sally-Ann Giles, from the Heart & Soul Pole Dance and Fitness based in Wolverhampton this summer.
From a bleak 2020, the future is looking brighter.
