Get to Know Our Instructors
Hailing from Manchester, UK, Emma thought she’d take it easy when she and her husband decided to move to Hong Kong. Realizing she’s not one to sit around she quickly returned to teaching classes. Emma is our most experienced instructor and her vivacious personality permeates her classes motivating all around. She is certified in Les Mills Bodypump, Les Mills Bodycombat, Les Mills Bodyattack, as well as Schwinn Cycling. Her holiday spin classes are not to be missed! Whether it’s Spooky spin, 50K post-Xmas spin or New Year’s Eve spin, these classes get fully booked well in advance because they’re fun and a great way to be part of the DB fitness community.
With every fibre in her being it’s easy to see that fitness is Rosa’s passion and she’s keen on awakening it in others. Originally from Finland, Rosa has always participated in sports. She’s competed at the highest levels in cross-country skiing as well as track and field competitions. Rosa has built on her athletic achievements moving into the world of fitness training. She is certified in Les Mills Bodypump, Les Mills GRIT and indoor cycling. But Rosa’s not one to rest on her laurels! She continues to challenge herself and has recently been certified to instruct FBX and HIIT Step. Being a mum of four kids, Rosa understands the struggle to balance life’s challenges and is eager to help people maintain a well-balanced lifestyle.
