My name is Sian, I am a mum of 2, Marley 5 and Dax 2 ½. I founded a fitness company called Aquafit 3 ½ years ago we now have 5 locations around Dubai. I love all the people I meet through work and love receiving emails from people telling me how it has changed their lives here.
Fitness and travel have always been my passion. I love outdoor adventure and adrenaline activities like skiing and diving.
WHERE IS HOME?
I’m from Hertfordshire but have been in Dubai 12 years so this is home now 😊
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
I remember wanting to be a firefighter, then Ballerina or Flight attendant – my dance teacher left to work for BA and I thought it would be such a fun and glamorous way to see the world.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am the sole founder of Aquafit Dubai, so handle all things business-related (business development, marketing and accounts ect). I reserve some time to personal train my VIP clients.

We have kids’ day every weekend where we try a different activity around the UAE. We meet up with my sister and her Fiancé for Sunday dinner.
