Hola! Thank’s for stopping by. I’m Holly, I’m a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist, originally from Manchester, in the UK, currently based in Barcelona, Spain.
I wanted to give you a little insight into me, to help you understand where I have come from, and why I am so passionate about helping others.
After a debilitating health issue in 2012, where I came close to losing my life, I decided everything needed to change. My mindset, my lifestyle, and my relationship with myself. After getting so much conflicting advice, and being a slave to the scales, I took the plunge into learning more for myself. I went back into education, and studied nutrition first, and then onto fitness.
I became my own first client.
It very quickly became my passion, and I embarked on a journey to help others how I had helped myself with my new found knowledge and my soul set on fire – I loved it! I started to learn so much about myself too, as I taught others.
I took a risk and moved to Barcelona in May 2016, after leaving my corporate job and taking up that dream of running my own business. Something I loved, in a place I loved, full time! The scariest but best decision of my life so far.
I finally opened up my life and mind, I worked on myself and what I truly wanted for my future. I started to work on my dreams, manifesting the life I wanted to create for myself.
After lots of saving up, travelling and learning, my dream became a reality. I became the proud owner of my boutique studio! I now spend my days helping people feel comfortable, both online and offline, excited and happy about movement. My studio is a reflection of that – clean, ambitious, spacious. A truly positive place for my incredible clients to actually enjoy working on themselves. A hub of laughter and fun, and a welcome space for people to grow, in the best possible ways.
This is just the beginning for me, and as I go through this journey of inspiring others, I am also growing into what I knew I could be, I feel more ambitious than ever, and whilst it’s not been easy, I am so proud of what I have created. New projects are on the horizon, and whilst being my own boss comes with challenges, it’s all part of the fun!
Thank you for stopping by and taking a peak into the making of Holly Barber Personal Training, and how I have got to this point today! I would love to hear from you!
