Personal trainer Sports massage therapist in Cardiff

My name is Donna Wharton, I’m 39, and I love my job. I’ve been a personal trainer in Cardiff since 2004 & a Sports Massage Therapist in Cardiff since 2008.

Personal Training me is different to the average personal training service out there. I educate you through every aspect of the session so you come away with a greater understanding of your body and how you are helping yourself to achieve your goals. I do not shout or simply tell you what to do, but guide you so the sessions feel like a real journey. I provide nutritional and health related advice to get you to where you want to be, faster.

As a keen sports woman throughout my life I’ve always been extremely interested in training, sport and fitness. I have competed for Cornwall in Cross Country running and more recently my favourite sport would have to be mountain biking. I love the exhilaration of the sport, as well as the challenge! I am a keen runner and train regularly.

In early 2003, when I travelled the world, I decided that I wanted to become a Personal Trainer Sports & Massage Therapist in Cardiff and help others achieve their fitness goals. I made a significant realisation that I loved helping people to feel good and so I coupled my love of exercise with this realisation and retrained as a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist.

I set up Vitality Fitness in 2004 and have completed a Boxercise course and sports massage diploma since to compliment the personal training, gym instruction and circuit instruction qualifications I already had.

Since 2004, I’ve been building up my clientelle, helping people achieve their goals and feel better about themselves.

I am a fully qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer having previously completed Level 2 Gym Instruction courses. My Level 4 Diploma in Sports Massage means that I have a high level of understanding of the human body and how it works.

I am very happily married and am lucky to have two daughters, 6 & 3, who have inspired me to gain a qualification in teaching exercise to children (2013) as I find it even more rewarding working with children (which I did not think was possible!)

I am also qualified to work with pre- and post-natal women (2013). I loved being pregnant both times and I honestly think this was partly down to exercising regularly and staying healthy. After an emergency C section with my first daughter I was keen for a natural birth for my second baby. I learnt techniques and positions that help, up to and during, labour and it is a real passion for me to be able to pass on this information and allow women to believe in their bodies through safe positions and exercises. I believed in my own body and had a most wonderful & beautiful water birth with my second daughter.

My most recent qualification is a Kettlebell course I did in 2015. This gave me some great ideas for my personal training sessions!

I hold “Public Indemnity” and “Civil Liability” insurance cover.

I am a Personal Trainer in Cardiff and provide Sports Massage in Cardiff.
