Emily Absalom, Health and Fitness Instructor

About my role at Westbank

I am here to assist you with any questions you have about the gym or any support you might need to achieve your fitness goals! I also teach a variety of in-person and online classes.


I really enjoyed instructing in Greece for 8 months and getting to work with people from all different backgrounds, ages and abilities.

A highlight of my dance career was getting to tour and perform in India and at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Southbank. 


BA Hons in Contemporary Dance

PGCE Dance Education

Level 2 Exercise to Music

My values

I’m passionate about helping people get fit and healthy and want to make a positive difference to the lives of those people I work with.

I love teaching fitness classes, and strongly believe in the positive impact (physically, mentally and socially) and sense of community that group exercise classes can have on people.

Personal interests

I teach some group exercise classes at gyms around Exeter in my spare time. I also love to run and keep up with my yoga practice when I can! I love the outdoors and making the most of the beautiful nature that Devon and the South West has to offer.

Helping people get fitter, healthier and happier!
