Angela Clarkson - Director, Eyelash Extension Therapist
Hi, I’m Ange. I own and help run TRG. (since mid 2014). I’m also a qualified eyelash extension therapist with a room also based at TRG. I spend some of my days/evenings at the gym on reception chatting with and helping various members – be it related to the gym or just life in general – we love to put the world to rights and have a laugh. We’re quite a family and community here, and like to get to know our members, many who are regulars.
I didn’t spend much time in a gym prior to 2013. Thinking ahead to having kids I wanted to get healthier and lose a few pounds, and after becoming pregnant and then having a baby in 2014 I didn’t really get back in the gym to train for a good 12-18 months. As a result I felt like a potato. I started training again in early 2016, lost lots of fat, built some muscle and 6 months later I got on stage in a bikini for a competition – July 2016.
I took part in my first aesthetics competition – Pure Elite in July 2016 to understand the level of training, dieting, commitment and event pressure experienced by many of our members. My transformation went from January 2016 to July 2016 and I placed 5th out of 18 in my category! Hard work but worth every second, and it left me with a body I can easily maintain and I can talk to others about their competitions with much more understanding.
I’m a single mum to an energetic little boy, own a gym, moan about training constantly, an ASA qualified swimming teacher and a qualified Lash Extension technician. I’m busy, I need a holiday and I love life.
With a background of Sales, Marketing and Product Development across various industries from IT, to online Gambling, to Property over 12 years, I spent most of my working life sitting down with very little exercise. Although I now work in the gym, I look after Marketing and some of the business stuff so I still spend a lot of time sitting down, meaning I still face the struggle of getting off my backside to train – I’m not naturally motivated. Thank goodness for the great people around us at TRG, members and PTs to encourage and motivate when I don’t have the drive!
