FitMixx is run by Katie Symes and is based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Katie is very passionate about community fitness which she has now taught for over 9 years.


Katie is Level 2 Exercise to Music qualified and also holds licences for Zumba and Zumba Gold which she currently teaches; as well as Zumba Kids, Zumba Strong, Zumba Toning &  Zumba Sentao. She is currently studing for a Level 3 qualification (Designing Excerice Programmes for Older Adults).

Several of the programmes in the FitMixx portfolio are exclusive as they have been developed by Katie. These are: Strictly Dance, Body Tone, Pulse and BoxxFit.

Katie is an Ambassador for the amazing #ThisGirlCan campaign, which encourages all women to get moving regardless of age, shape, size or ability.

Katie regularly raises funds for charity through her classes and events, and has led the Bright Red blood cancer charity warm up for the past four years.

FitMixx classes suit all fitness levels and there is no experience needed. There is always something fun to look forward to with several themed classes, social parties and events throughout the year. We are very friendly, so come and join us!

Outside of classes Katie enjoys spending time with friends, family and fiance Luke and lots of cuddles with the family dog Ollie. Katie is also a competitive dancer in Ballroom, Latin and Classical Sequence and is learning to play the Piano.
