A ROSEMARY Conley diet and fitness instructor from WGC will be encouraging others to follow in her footsteps – after being made one of the company’s executive franchisees.

Lindsey Peters runs classes in Welwyn Garden City, St Albans and Ware, helping hundreds of people to lose weight each and every week.

And her dedication in helping others shed those unwanted pounds has seen her become one of just three new executive franchisees.

Lindsey will be on hand to help anyone interested in running classes anywhere in Herts, Beds or Bucks where there is currently no Rosemary Conley franchise.

“I’m very privileged to be asked and very excited about it,” Lindsey told the Welwyn Hatfield Times.

“I will be mentoring people and holding their hands through their first year.”

This includes everything and anything new franchisees will need to know and learn – from nutritional training to business basics such as marketing.

To get the ball rolling, Lindsey is hosting an information open day next Friday, February 10 at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel.

“There is absolutely no commitment on the day, so even if it’s not the right time you now come along and we can have an honest chat,” Lindsey added.

Lindsey, who runs her franchise with fiance and business partner Michael Wood, is one of Rosemary Conley’s greatest success stories.

Having originally joined the company as an instructor in 1994, she bought her own franchise when the opportunity arose in 2005.

Since then she has been a finalist in the Rosemary Conley Franchisee of the Year Awards every single year – winning the overall honour in 2006 and 2010.

She was also newcomer of the year back in 2005, and won the special Rosemary Conley Award for devising specific nutrional classes aimed at children.

Rosemary herself, who can currently be seen skating each week on ITV’s Dancing on Ice competition, describes Lindsey as a “great ambassador” for the company.
