A LEEDS based fitness entrepreneur is hoping to further boost her business by entering a competition backed by Richard Branson.
Claire McGarry created burlesque themed fitness class BurleX in 2013 and now has over 200 instructors across the UK, Ireland, Greece and Spain.
Following her success so far, she has now entered Virgin Media Business VOOM, which offers winners the chance to share £1m worth of prizes and to pitch to Richard Branson.
She said: “A lot of people don’t want to exercise. I love the fact they not only leave BurleX fitter and healthier, but also empowered and confident because they feel sassy and sexy.
“It feels like a girls’ night out with your friends. In fact, I’ve actually seen girls pulling out the moves they’ve learnt in class on the dancefloor! We know we’ve got the roots of a fantastic business. Now we just need it to grow, to VOOM.”
80 entrants with the most votes up to May 23 go through to the next stage of the competition.
