Hi, my name is Elly Hill and I am overjoyed to announce that I am now part of the Miss Independent Woman team!!

My day job is a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor and luckily for me I LOVE my job! I am based in beautiful Pembrokeshire, South Wales but also provide online coaching and personal training. You’ll be surprised to hear this but as a teenager in secondary school I avoided sport and fitness at all costs. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I fell in love with the gym and all things sporty. My main passions are resistance training and running but if it gets you fit and gets you sweating I will give it a go.

My many fitness exploits include sea rowing, cycling, swimming, weight lifting, kickboxing and running including everything from 10k’s right through to ultra marathons!

I will be blogging about all things fitness related including diets, health, fitness and fashion and my own personal training regime and I may also post some of my own progress pictures. If you have any fitness questions or you are wondering how to get started with exercise get in touch. I am here to help and get you strong, fit and healthy!
