Clare Louise Freeman
was tackling her own journey through better health when she suffered a back injury in her early 20’s.
This catalyst helped her make the decision to personally train in mind-body types of exercise like yoga, pilates & tai chi & massage whilst she continued to enjoy trekking, running & doing triathlons.
After training as a Pilates Instructor she decided to go back to University & study a BSc in Exercise & Health Science & wrote her dissertation in exercise & mental health.
She trained as a CHEK exercise holistic coach and was working in several gym & spa facilities around Gloucestershire.
Then she landed a job with Cotswold District Council who kindly encouraged her to go on a scientifically evidence based course called Laterlife, where she specifically learnt to deliver exercise appropriate for people in their 50’s, 60’s & 70’s.
She was fortunate to work alongside some of the physio’s based in the North of the Cotswolds during this role.
Clare was keen to set up her own business & founded Zigs Exercise.
She is now known as the Cotswolds most experienced Laterlife personal health trainer.
She is based in Cheltenham with her husband Gary & 2 Children.
After attending a business retreat, they made the decision to build their own cabin style mind-body studio to support the juggle of business & family life.
Zigs has a unique friendly team vibe & works really well for people who might feel intimidated by a large commercial gym full of young fit people.
They are passionate about working with people struggling with aches, pains & stiffness as well as people who might already be fairly active but need accountability on getting their flexibility, strength & core training done whilst juggling their busy lives.
