Meet Caroline
Caroline Sandry is a fully qualified Pilates teacher, Yoga teacher and personal trainer. With an established career as a fitness presenter and writer Caroline regularly contributes for many magazines including Women’s Running, Ultra Fit, WeightWatchers, and has featured in women’s magazines such as Elle, Bella and Healthy. She has also written two books: Shape Up! Tailor made training for female body shapes (A&C Black 2009) and Shape Up at Home (Dennis magbook 2010).

Her wide and varied knowledge combined with her skills as a TV presenter have lead to a long term guest presenting role on QVC UK, infomercials in the USA and Canada, regular programmes on Body In Balance TV and other TV, web and DVD projects. With eight fitness DVDs already to her name, Caroline is currently working on her ninth project. A producer and presenter, Caroline enjoys working on both sides of the camera. As a personal trainer, Caroline has worked with many celebrities including actresses, models and pop stars, and she continues to develop this side of her business.

"I love combining the media and presenting side of my career with personal training: because of the breadth of experience I have from working with regular clients every day, I know exactly what works, and how my clients feel. This also gives me a greater understanding of the barriers that people may come across in their struggle to lose weight and tone up. I enjoy sharing my passion and expertise in fitness and look forward to continue motivating clients and audiences in the future."
