About Me

My coaching ethos is to embrace variety and enjoy what you do

Sunshine Health & Fitness is owned and run by Head Coach Alison Smith, who, after 20 years in the corporate world finally took the plunge in 2012 and qualified as a personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach and Triathlon coach. 

After five years in the UK coaching beginner runners and triathletes, as well as working with Personal Training clients, the business has now developed to include a bespoke online coaching model, which allows for a very personal service to athletes globally.

There are 4 main factors to our coaching philosophy:

  • Endurance

  • Strength

  • Rest

  • Fuel

All of these form the structure of your coaching plan with me
