DIANA VAN HEERDEN
What makes your class so f'cking awesome?
High energy music, motivating, encouraging, strong, keep an eye on technique, scaling for all levels.
What was your journey to becoming an instructor? How the hell did you get here?
Started as a hobby back home in Hungary whilst I was studying Economics at university. After graduating, I decided economics was not for me but FITNESS was all me. I also decided to see the world so I went sailing the Mediterranean and the Caribbean working on cruise ships as a Fitness Instructor. After a while, I moved to London and shortly after that I found Frame. Since that day I have been hooked.
What’s your favourite way to keep a healthy body and a healthy mind?
The older I get, the more I learn to listen to my body and my mind and adjust my training and relaxing schedule accordingly. If you do the things you enjoy, exercise will never be a chore. Playing with my kids is my favourite way of keeping fit in a fun way. Lifting heavy weights and learning new skills also keep my body and mind challenged.
Who’s your fitness hero? Why?
Those 60 + year old ladies and gents who still play active sports and keep strong and fit, often with a higher level of fitness than a 20-year-old!
What does your downtime look like?
I have 2 young children so no downtime for me!
