Vicki Anstey founded London’s original Barre and Ballet studio, Barreworks, and in doing so set the scene for the wider barre works fitness movement throughout the UK. Vicki now helps others to set up their own fitness businesses through her own courses and was named Female Entrepreneur of the year at the Richmond Business Awards 2019.
Last year Vicki became one of the first female recruits to qualify for the channel 4 programme ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ in which she reached the final. Since her participation on this show Vicki has become an advocate for women’s resilience, grit and determination. In June of next year Vicki will be embarking on a new challenge -joining a crew of 3 other ‘ordinary’ women to row 4000km from California to Hawaii. But Vicki has not always been at the forefront of fitness; previously unhealthy and by her own admittance overweight, she made a number of changes to her life that led to her successful business career and personal achievements.
