Fire Island is the Creation of Jo Palosaari

I'm embracing the fresh challenge of incorporating coastal Hampshire nature into my fitness training, psychic support, and portraits.
Since 2004 I've taught Pilates, and Dance Fitness in London: from large community groups, to small Studio groups, and in-company
I've introduced many people to new levels of fitness through my Change your body, Change your life personal training programmes
Our move to Hayling , after 11 years of holidaying here, gives me fresh ideas, and new challenges
