Miche P Heine


Miche P holds an Advanced Diploma in Personal Training, as well as a Level 2 ETM (Exercise to Music - Group Exercise) qualification. She enjoys teaching a range of different group classes as well as one to one sessions, and helping others to achieve their personal goals is her passion. In her free time Miche P enjoys Effective Self Protection and Fitness training, including hand to hand and hand to knife combat.


Coming from a Performing Arts background, Miche P enjoys creating new routines and combos and finds it helps her adapt to different situations easily.

"I genuinely enjoy the social element of teaching, especially when it comes to celebrating my  clients progress, usually with a happy dance. Their journey is my journey, as very often it's not only a physical one, but an inner growth that brings about the biggest change."
