A FITNESS trainer has proved she can last the distance after reaching a personal landmark.
Instructor Angie Phillips, of Tempest Avenue, Potters Bar, was presented with the Masters Prestigious Award in honour of her 20-year commitment to fitness and exercise group Moves Fitness.
The 44-year-old was given the honour in a surprise presentation during one of her Monday night classes. Moves Fitness founder Cindy Gilbert was on hand present the award in front of more than 30 class members.
Angie first attended a Moves Fitness class in Crystal Palace in 1987, and enjoyed the combination of conditioning, music and fun that it provided. That was were she first met the trainer who would eventually give her the award more than 20 years later.
"There were various teachers leading the sessions each hour," she said, "but Cindy teaching Moves Fitness was by far the most original, enjoyable and most fun of them all - so much so that I decided there and then to sign up for the training workshop to become an instructor myself."
Mother-of-two Angie added: "I've loved teaching for these past 20 years, and I intend to teach for another 20."
Cindy said: "This is an extremely exclusive group that Angie has joined.
"Her teaching skills are exceptional, and her service to the health of the community is something that you see by how vibrant, conditioned and healthy so many local women are."
Angie's classes take place on Mondays, from 7.30pm to 8.30pm, at St.Mary's Church Hall in The Walk, Potters Bar. The first session is free.
