Amanda Linekar

Self Defence Coach and fitandhappy boot camp cover Coach

 

Born and raised in a small town in Northern Ontario, Canada, being active and spending time outdoors was a given for Amanda.

Amanda's summer months were spent swimming, hiking or riding a bike. During the winter Amanda would be skiing, snowshoeing or attempting to snowboard. Amanda was and still is always on the go and happiest when moving. 
Amanda has a background in Martial Arts, practising and competing in Shotokan Karate from a young age. 
Her love of sports and fitness grew and she went on to complete a degree in Sports Psychology, followed by a Masters in Strength and Conditioning from the University of Edinburgh.
Amanda has been lucky enough to work with athletes and beginners alike whilst travelling the globe.  
She still gets a kick out of seeing her clients' self-esteem and confidence blossom right before her eyes. 
She believes that we should train for longevity and a healthy lifestyle, and is a firm believer in “Just do you and don’t compare yourself to others.” Fitness should build you up and make you feel great, not break you down.

Jemma - personal trainer, fitness coach and mamas coach at fitandhappy

Jemma Valentine

Personal Trainer, Pre and Postnatal Specialist and fitandhappy Boot Camp Coach

Jemma is available for 1:1 PT and coaches boot camp in various parks as well as online.

Jemma has a passion for the outdoors and brunch. She is keen to show you how little habits can make big changes to last you a lifetime. The outdoors provides so much more than a place to exercise, it changes your mind, your mood, and your attitude.

Jemma discovered the importance of fitness back in 2012 when she worked in the Alps, went skiing most days but found recovery incredibly difficult due to an overindulgent lifestyle! She enjoys all kinds of movement and is on a mission to bag all 282 of the Munros in Scotland.

When not coaching for fitandhappy you can find her running, cycling, or on a Pilates reformer.

She is ready to support you and drive you forward so you can achieve your goals and she doesn't want you to wait until Monday. Today is your day.

Kay McAllister

Kay McAllister

Personal Trainer and fitandhappy Boot Camp Coach

Kay coaches some of our boot camps in Inverleith Park.

Kay is passionate about movement and exercise that makes you feel alive and connected to yourself. From an early age, Kay was involved with dance, hockey and running, showing her that exercise can take many forms and the positive impact it can have on your wellbeing and mental health. 

Becoming qualified as a Level 2 & 3 Personal Trainer in 2019 was a natural next step as Kay wanted to help others find ways of exercising that best suits them. Kay has always been an advocate for women taking on exercise, helping boost their confidence and empowering them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. In her opinion, fitness is for all and doesn’t have one look (except maybe sweaty!).

Kay is also a professionally trained actor and is an acting tutor for young people. When not teaching or at fitandhappy bootcamps she enjoys exploring the outdoors, practicing yoga and meditation, and having a good old laugh and a giggle. 

Krista Bridges

Krista Bridges

fitandhappy Boot Camp Coach

You'll find Krista coaching boot camp sessions at Inverleith Park and the Meadows.

Krista is originally from Connecticut, USA.  She is a Premier Global-NASM personal trainer, group fitness instructor, nutrition coach and pre and postnatal specialist. You can find Krista at fitandhappy's Inverleith Park and Meadows Boot Camp sessions.

Krista left her previous career in marketing to move to London for her Personal Training diploma in 2016.  Leaving agency-land allowed her to start fresh and focus on business pipe-dreams in pursuit of new adventures, passion projects, help others discover their true potential and have fun!

Outside of class, Krista plays competitive dodgeball for the Edinburgh Fireworks and the international team, the Scotland Highlanders.  She is easily distracted by puppies (especially german shepherds, huskies, labs... anything big enough to rugby tackle).  Breakfast is her favorite meal of the day - but Brunch comes in at a very close second.
