CLARE KITE

Clare Kite lives in beautiful North Wales, UK, and loves to spend time by the water, and in the mountains with her dogs.

She has always been a bit of an adrenaline junkie, loving water sports and motorbikes, but didn’t enter the fitness industry until 9 years ago, when her love of music and movement drove her to leave her desk job behind & launch a whole new career.

Clare loves to see the change that takes place in a person when they are able to let go and be their truest self. She is passionate about the community aspect and feeling of connection that comes with POUND.

What are your 3 earliest memories in life?
My Dad waking me in the middle of the night to see baby rabbits playing in the garden.

Roll down a hill in a field of tall wheat, leaving long trails of flattened stalks, with my friends. I think we were probably about 7 or 8.

Sitting on the bow of my Dad’s windsurfer on Bala Lake, mountains on every side.

What’s the first thing you do when you get home from a trip?
Have a cup of tea. I’m British!

If you had two hours left on earth what would you do?
Call family and friends to tell them I love them, and write letters for my daughters to keep, telling them how amazing they are.

What do you want people to say about you once you’re gone?
That I was always there when they needed someone.

If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Oooh, I think Ching Shih. She lived in China in the early 1800’s. She started her working life as a prostitute, but married a pirate and became leader of an immense fleet, even defeating the Chinese Navy when they tried to take her down. Fascinating! Otherwise my Dad. I’d love him to meet his granddaughters and see who I’ve become.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
Just be yourself, no one else can do that.

What’s one thing you’re certain of?
That no one lives forever, and life is too short not to take a chance.
