Our Story



Vanessa Hoh is the founder of Work Me Shape Me. She started these events with the idea of building a community of like-minded people interested in keeping active and trying new experiences. An advocate for practicing a balanced lifestyle, she wanted to make working out more fun and less lonely.

After beginning her corporate career and fitness journey in London, Vanessa fell in love with the variety and experience boutique fitness studios had to offer. Recognising that it could be daunting and intimidating visiting a new gym alone, she also found it challenging to make like-minded friends in a big city who she could share these experiences with. At the same time, she tried to overcome a significant lifestyle change of obsessive exercise and restrictive dieting.

This gave birth to the idea of Work Me Shape Me. 

Work Me Shape Me events champion a balanced lifestyle and reject the idea of unhealthy obsessions and restrictions. Vanessa is especially proud of the variety of people the events attract and is a strong believer in the value of surrounding yourself with good and encouraging people.
