For almost 10 years Claire Diver has successfully run her fitness business, four of which here in Sunny Nelson. Following her move from bonnie Scotland in 2012 Claire set up camp in Nelson and hasn’t looked back.
Fitness with Claire offers a variety of fitness classes, yoga instruction and personal training sessions. Her philosophy of getting fit for fun has resulted in a varied client base. From athletes in need of core training who are afraid of yoga – to drop in bootcamps that burn fat and tone. No matter what, Claire seeks to build confidence in the area you need; imobility, balance, strength or indeed just the gym environment.
“Claire’s open approach has offered so many positive changes. The biggest change for me physically has been the increased strength, flexibility and the increase in my balance. I was so unbelievably pleased to get up on the paddle boards at the end of the six weeks. It’s not only the physical changes but the positive feeling of achievement too. Feeling more motivated about life in general is a real plus. So thanks heaps Claire for that. It’s your sense of adventure and fun that makes me so motivated to turn up each morning”
“I pride myself in offering fitness sessions which are available to all. An example of this is my lovely client Bex Mathus and her 18 years old son training alongside each other during an EarlyBird Bootcamp session… They did the same exercises just at different paces and used different weights – everybody trained hard and it was fun!!”

“I learned how to swim in New Zealand, 3 years ago had no confidence in the water. Living in New Zealand has encouraged me to challenge my fears and embrace the ocean and all the fun it offers… Watch this space for a wild Scottish girl on water skis, not to mention SUP Yoga!”
“I have to walk on the beach every week simply because I can, growing up in a big city that was never really an option”
