Helping to get hundreds of clients in shape
Healthy lifestyle nominee – sponsored by Universal Care
THE owner of a local health and fitness business has been nominated for a Pride of Bucks Healthy Lifestyle Award, sponsored by Universal Care, after helping countless clients improve their fitness and physiques.
Alice Ramcharran, 41, is the owner of Pyramid Health & Fitness and she also teaches fitness classes throughout the week in High Wycombe and the surrounding area.
Kelly Francis, 28, who made the nomination, was so impressed with Mrs Ramcharran’s classes and unrelenting support that she became a qualified Zumba teacher and started working for Pyramid Health & Fitness as an instructor.
Ms Francis said: “She teaches endless amounts of classes per week, to help everyone have the opportunity to get fit and be healthy.
“She personally helped me lose two stone, through encouragement and support at both classes and on the phone or email. What I lost in weight, I gained in confidence and since then, we have become great friends.”
She added: “Alice is a loving wife and mum of two and I just don’t know how she does it all.”
Mrs Ramcharran, who was very surprised to receive the nomination said: “I am very excited and very happy to be nominated, It was a really pleasant surprise.
“Kelly was one of my really good clients. She lost a lot of weight when we were working together and I saw a lot of potential in her so I asked her to become a trainer and we are now very good friends.”
When she set up Pyramid Health & Fitness, the company offered two fitness classes a week – they now offer over 20.
She added: “I was working as a teacher before but then I set up the company in 2007. But I have scaled it back recently because of my children, however, we are still offering a lot of classes in the local area.”
