Liz Ford

Glow Northumberland & Tyneside

Hi, I'm Liz and I'm your Glow coach for Cramlington, Seaton Burn, Seaton Sluice, Stannington and Whitley Bay.

If you are unable to attend a Community class, I also teach my classes on Facebook live and these are available live or on-demand.

First Class Free

We offer all new members a FREE trial community class. Simply pick your class from the list and contact me to book your place.

My classes offer the complete package helping you to become slimmer, fitter, healthier and happier.

I offer a wide range of exercise- including traditional Aerobics, Tabata, Toning, Purestretch, HIIT, Fitness Pilates and Pyramids.
I offer a combination of exercise and an optional weekly weigh-in.

My main objective is to help you get fitter and lead a healthier lifestyle having lots of fun on the way. My classes are suitable for everyone regardless of weight, shape, size or ability.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will be happy to help.

Here’s a few thoughts that you may have before you decide to come along...

I probably won’t know anyone.
Many of my members who join find new friends and get together for coffee, walks and outings outside class too, so if you’ve recently moved to the area or retired it could be a great way to meet new people.

I haven’t really exercised much before.
Don’t worry, we have lots of members who are either new to exercise or returning after a break, or think their co-ordination isn’t good enough to join a class. My classes are designed to get you exercising at the right level for you and we can adapt the moves and offer alternatives for most fitness abilities. Although it’s an exercise class it’s designed to be fun – no one gets everything right all the time, not even me!

Will I be too old?
Very unlikely! Most of my memebrs are 50+ with the oldest being 88 years young!

Will I be able to keep a check on my weight?
Yes if you want to. With our Glow Eat Well nutrition plan we want to encourage you to cook from scratch and whilst it’s definitely not a ‘diet’ we hope that it will help you control your portion sizes and eat healthily. I do bring my scales to class each week and you can either check your weight yourself or ask me to do it – or you can just come for the exercise, whichever suits you best.

Full Schedule


I started coming to the Pilates class and from there ventured to some of the others. Liz is really friendly and you always get a warm welcome when you come into the class. The classes have not only helped me get fit but got me back in touch with old school friends and also made new ones on the way.  If you can't make a class you can always do it at home as they are also live and recorded. Liz goes out of her way to help you achieve your goals.

I started attending Liz's pilates group in January 2019; it is the longest commitment I have ever had to such a class and I can honestly say I really enjoy and benefit from it. I have a nice walk to class with my friend, Clare, do the class and walk back home. Liz has been an inspiration especially through lockdown. I joined many of her classes either live or recorded during this time. She has been really supportive to members during lockdown and I'm sure lots of other members like me, really appreciate her and are inspired by her. Thanks Liz

I've been enjoying my Glow classes for over 3 years now and I have no intention of stopping.

I love the variation in the classes and Liz always throws in some new moves. It is such a friendly group and we always have a laugh. I think  fitter now than what ive been for years and I have much more energy and stamina too.

Liz has been amazing all the way through lock down she deserves a medal. 

I joined Glow nearly three years ago and have never looked back. For the first time in my life, I enjoy exercise!. Liz has classes for everyone, no matter your shape, size, age or fitness level, there is a class to try, or to improve at. All levels of fitness are covered so you can tailor your exercise to fit. Liz always has lots of lifestyle advice and all the members are so supportive of each other, losing weight and getting fit has never been this much fun!!
Even throughout lockdown Liz has done online classes and her infectious enthusiasm and dedication have kept us all going. I thoroughly recommend giving Glow a go.

(Fitter at 59 than I’ve ever been!!)

Started with Liz 3/4 years ago have enjoyed and learned something in most classes.  Liz makes you believe you can do it and if not she is quite happy for you to work at your own pace.  In lock down there was a comradeship feeling with her own line classes afternoon chats and quizzes.

Glow has been my saviour just popped up at exactly the right time for me . It's not just fitness it's fitness, support, friendship and absolute security. It's my time for me . No matter how anxious I am I can be in a room with liz and the girls knowing I have their support and they have mine . Before I started glow I never imagined exercise being so much fun that I couldn't wait till the next class . I can't thank you all enough xxx 

I do classes with Liz and it has helped me massively.Since joining Liz I have managed to walk Hadrians Wall and the West Highland Way. Liz is also very supportive and caters for everyone.

I go to Glow classes with Liz Wilson because they are fun, varied and suitable for all with an amazing atmosphere. This is not just a keep fit class, it's a social group with trips away, walks and talk topics. Liz will always go the extra mile to help. She is very supportive.
