Sean Manison, head of quality and assurance from SSE Contracting said: "We have introduced the YOLO Classes for our employees as part of our Health and Wellbeing strategy and received a really positive response from our teams. The sessions are regular and uplifting and enable us to take some much-needed time out to take care of our mind and body and reset ourselves for the week ahead. YOLO share this ethos and have been fantastic at providing sessions with a great balance of movement and mindfulness.”

About Emily Sealey

Seven years ago, Emily decided to make her hobby her business. Leaving a successful career in banking she qualified as a Personal Trainer, Group Exercise Leader and more recently Pilates teacher. She has worked with a wide range of people from athletes to professionals, teenagers to 80-year-olds.  

Guiding each of them to realise their individual goals and for many providing on-going support and structure to maintain their achievements. ‘Feel Good Fitness’ is the motto she lives by, whether that’s feeling good about your clothes fitting; being able to run further, or simply the ability to relax at the end of a stressful day.

Emily uses exercise to keep her sane. Living in a house with 4 boys she understands how important it is to make exercise fun and how it can be used to lift your mood and support your mental wellbeing as much as your physical health. 

Through the pandemic Emily has realised just how invaluable the online sessions have been to her clients, in giving them an opportunity to take time out for themselves.
