Personal Trainer / Head Strength & Conditioning Coach / Class Instructor

Hi, I'm Mel and the Owner and Founder of Amazon24 Fitness, I'm 44 and a mum of 1.  I have extensive experience and knowledge within the Sport and Fitness Industry.  I've been a Personal Training for 20 years and have a focus on Strength and Conditioning with athletes, ranging from GB Judo, British ParaCycling, Triathletes, Kickboxing, Swimming, Rugby, Football and UK Athletics.

I've been an avid amateur sports athlete all my life playing Prem Hockey, Rugby Union, Kickboxing and Road Cycling.

I love empowering people and helping them believe in themselves

I like to create and deliver professional and dynamic programmes to ensure my clients achieve their goals using a range of training skills and techniques, as well as assessing function and mobility.  I massively believe that creating the right environment means all abilities can train together in unison.


Mel plays classical guitar and has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (not at the same time though).  She also loves Rock music and used to live in Australia.

Hi, I'm Rebecca, a 46 year old fit and strong woman, wife and mother of 4 children.  Born and raised in London, I started my initial career in Pharmaceutical Science.  At the age of 32, I fell in love with running.  In 2009, I retrained as an Advanced Personal Trainer because I had a huge passion for health and fitness.


Rebecca loves musicals, opera and movies (Disney makes her cry!).  At 10 years old, a horror movie scarred her for life and will never watch one again!

She doesn't eat chocolate, cheese or drink wine but she loves a big bowl of pasta...even for breakfast!

Louise Dawson
Massage Therapist/Kinesiology Practitioner/Class Instructor


Hi, I'm Lou, I'm 49 and a mother of 3 who are now 28, 24 and 20.  I first qualified in 1997 as a group exercise instructor (god, I'm old) and have always been in to fitness and swam competitively as a youngster.

I qualified as a sports therapist in 2006 and have added strings to my bow including chiropractor technique and am a practitioner in kinesiology which offers nutritional testing, structural realignments and much more.  

I love my classes and want people to feel welcome and comfortable as classes can feel intimidating.  In clinic, I love helping people reduce their pain through realignment and muscle testing.  Treating the body as a whole and balancing them inside and out.


Lou loves roller skating, coffee and all food especially cheese!
