Meet our team in Vassiliki
At Healthy Options, we value not only the skills and experience of our instructing team but also the fact that they are always friendly and approachable.
This year our team in Vassiliki is brand new and we thought you might like to learn a bit about them, their outlook and their experience. But today we first talk about one of the ladies many of you will know, Amy Chambers.
Amy Chambers, Fitness Instructor and manager
Amy joined us in 2011 for the fitness side of the Healthy Options programme and is now managing the Vassiliki centre as well as teaching. Amy grew up in Cyprus; it was there that her love of watersports and triathlon began.
During university, she competed in the British Triathlon Championships and then went on to teach a variety of water sports, including kite-surfing, windsurfing and diving in various locations around the world. Throughout this time, her love of all things fitness-orientated has continued to grow; she is a Level 3 Personal Trainer and holds various swimming and aqua qualifications. She’s a regular in the Yoga and Pilates classes, believing that all the classes complement the other and is constantly learning from her team mates. She is also a Level 5 Advanced Windsurfing instructor and is really looking forward to not just getting people out on the water, but comfortable in the water too.
Throughout this season, Amy will be teaching Body Sculpt, Swiss Ball, Run Circuits, Hydro Fit and swim technique classes. If that’s not enough to get your heart rate going, Amy will also be available to give those who are interested some beginner windsurfing tuition or 1-1 swimming lessons.Amy has a wonderfully fun and realistic approach to fitness and loves teaching at all levels. But don’t worry, she won’t be enrolling anyone in a boot camp - after all, the Healthy Options philosophy is: do as much or as little as you like!
Says Amy: "It’s important to me that people have fun when they’re exercising, I really try and teach people when they’re in my classes, so they have some knowledge to take home. There’s nothing I love more than giving people new experiences and skills, particularly in or on the water!"
Amy Chambers will be available in Vassiliki from 6th May to 7th October
"Amy's strength and positive energy was infectious and her teaching skills, 1st class - congratulations on two unfit people in their mid-fifties windsurfing in their first lesson."
Liz Harvey, general practitioner
"Swimming lessons with Amy were fantastic, made more progress in 3 hours than I have in years. Great, thank you!"
Arlene Lyans, translator
"A beautiful setting, to reboot, enjoy exercise, the sea, the people. Amy's classes stood out!"
Penny Smith, head teacher
We have a new, much larger Healthy Options Yoga/Pilates tent that is positioned in a far calmer setting with magnificent mountain views. So if you can picture yourself doing your practices with nature to hand,...Read on
