Nicola Ashby

I have always loved working in education and sharing my knowledge and expertise. There is no greater feeling than helping others

Nicola Ashby

Keeping fit and healthy in body and mind has always been a passion of mine. When I was introduced to massage in college, I absolutely loved it, I loved the ability to really make a difference and help people to alleviate aches, pains, and tension and help them feel good. Since the age of 17, I have continued to develop my love of fitness and massage.

 

I worked in the Further Education sector for 13 years as a lecturer at a college in Cambridge, where I specialised in delivering fitness and massage qualifications alongside delivering levels 1-5 In BTEC Sport qualifications. Throughout my time as a college lecturer, I also had private mobile massage clients and taught a range of regular fitness classes including Zumba, Pilates, boot camps and 1-2-1 personal training clients.

 

I left FE in 2021 to prioritise my own business, NJ Fitness and Massage, which involved a large range of community fitness classes specialising in pregnancy and postnatal. I also started to offer a wider range of massage treatments from my own treatment room.

 

I have always loved working in education and sharing my knowledge and expertise. There is no greater feeling than helping others. I am incredibly lucky to be able to do this day-to-day with my own clients as well as sharing this with other therapists.

 

I am very excited to be teaching across a wide range of massage courses for Gateway Workshops, I am looking forward to being able to support you with your next qualification.


Tutors Feedback

Simply sensational! She is extremely didactic, makes you understand the entire process, both the theoretical and practical parts. We really learn, we finish the course able to develop all the movements and techniques. Super attentive and concerned about learning. It passes a lot of knowledge and confidence. I was really satisfied with everything.
