5 minutes with Dani from Les Mills

Name:  Dani Strong          

Business: Les Mills Newmarket 

Why do you love working for Les Mills?

I love working for Les Mills because I live a healthy lifestyle and love helping others create and achieve a balanced lifestyle through nutrition and training, recommending group fitness classes to fit into a busy schedule.

Because I work shorter hours, it allows me to pursue my passions of health and nutrition whilst being able to train in our beautiful gym too!

What do you love about working in Newmarket?

That everything is so accessible – if I need to grab a bite to eat, heel my shoes, tailor a dress or pick up some groceries I can get it done in one go.

Pick your favourite class at Les Mills?

I can’t decide between our beautiful 1 hour lunchtime Yoga classes or GRIT Strength group fitness class.

Favourite place to get lunch?

Zarbo – stunner salad selections and either a piece of Salmon or chicken breast with a long black.

How did you come to work for Les Mills?

I was looking for avenues to make my passion of health and fitness a living so I started studying to become a certified holistic nutritionist and Les Mills fit perfectly into my life.

Name 3 items that we would find in your bag/satchel?

A Quest protein bar – Choc Chip Cookie Dough is my fav flavour!

A sachet of Zrii Accell – my go to energizer that helps me focus as I study or gives me that extra 10% when I train.

Lip gloss.

Drink of choice?

A long black or sparkling water with fresh mint and lime.

It’s 8pm on a Tuesday night.  Where will we find you and what are you doing?

If I’m not finishing up a shift at Les Mills I’m enjoying dinner with my partner or friends.

What was the last thing that you bought?

 Some delicious Navy + White Reebok kicks.

Who has had the biggest influence on your life?

This is a hard one because I make sure I surround myself with an inspiring and positive crew who support my mission in living my passions.
