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.”
