About

Hi I’m Kirstin, I own Brightonfit and I worked as a personal trainer in Brighton for over 20 years. Whilst you won’t see me out in our studio’s training clients these days I will pick the phone up to you or respond to your initial website inquiry, write our blog and am still intrinsically involved in the running of the show!

I am an ‘all rounder’ fitness-wise these days; I like to combine gym work and outdoor training (predominantly running), although in my 20s and 30s I was lucky enough to have a long career as a semi-professional kickboxer. Midway through that I set up a not for profit boxing club which targeted socially deprived youths in Brighton and Hove; we took referrals from Brighton’s youth offending and Social services.

Recently, I have become a student again and after completing a masters in biomedical engineering I am now pursuing a PhD in the same field where I am designing the next generation of bionic limbs for amputees (humans and dogs). I find this work is extremely rewarding in a very different way to personal training, but oh boy does my body miss being active all day! I now completely understand all the complaints you used to walk into my studio with – my back hurts from sitting, I am battling postural problems and so the list goes on!
