Your Host...

My name is Karen Boyd.  I am 35 years old and I'm a level 3 qualified personal trainer and hand qualified beauty therapist. I have my own beauty salon here on Barra and I am a qualified metafit, metapwr, Fatburn extreme and outdoor boot camp instructor, as well as offering one to one PT sessions.

 

This business was first thought of seven years ago when I attended my very first residential boot camp as a client five months after my daughter Holly was born and I just loved every single minute of it!!  I knew from that moment that this was what I was going to do with my future.  I felt so good and I wanted to give other people the opportunity to feel the same way.  I moved back to Barra after 13 years in glasgow to purse my dream but life got in the way so maybe the timing just wasn't right, but we're here no, so better late than never right??

I am passionate about health and wellness but also about creating balance in our lives, no extremes or fads.

I mix my own training up a lot with a variety of HiiT training, cross fit style workouts, running and swimming, I have recently taken up yoga and will hopefully become a yoga instructor in the next year.  I love the outdoor and I'm very blessed to be surrounded by some of the worlds most stunning unspoiled beaches.
