get to know me…


Hi, I’m Ella Forester. The girl behind Active With Ella.

Here’s a little note about who I am and why I’ve decided to create this website.

I’m a small country girl from the North/West of Ireland. Originally born in Liverpool but brought up in the hills of County Donegal. With my mum from South America and my dad from Stoke-On-Trent you could say I’m a bit of mixed breed pup.

I have three passions in life: fitness, food and my dog Peanut Butter (Peanie Potter as I call him). Up until nearly 3 years ago I had never lifted a weight and since our first encounter I’ve never looked back. It was love at first lift. I pretty much had an affair on my fashion career and left my course in Fashion Communications at Heriot-Watt University in Galashiels, Scotland halfway through in May 2015.

Yes! I am a dropout but it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I’ve never had any regrets.

I guess with a passion for fitness a love for food seems to always tag along too. (The third wheel) Basically I love food. I love learning food, cooking food and eating it of course! In case you haven’t already guessed by the name of my dog – I may be a slight peanut butter addict.
I am currently a student at the LDNM Academy in London. I’m studying to be a qualified personal trainer. So I’m finally doing something I love and thought it was the perfect time for me to hop on the fitness/foodie blogging parade because who doesn’t love another blogger trying to share her journey!

Active With Ella is a tool for me to share and learn with you!

Thanks so much for reading & don’t be a stranger!

Hasta Luego!
