Saira believes that everyone has the right to a healthy and active lifestyle and wants to support as many people as possible in achieving this.

She said: “I have always been interested in nutrition and a diet rich in everything that we need to be in optimum health.

“After intensive research, I saw a real gap in the market for this in the local area and after much planning Wellness on The Rock was born.

“I want to build a real community of like-minded people with common goals who are able to come together in a safe space and make changes to their lifestyles.”
