Vicki Anstey is one of the UK’s leading fitness experts and Founder of London’s original barre and ballet studio, Barreworks. Vicki is also the first female Harlequins Foundation Ambassador.


Vicki recently reached the final of series 4 of Channel 4’s ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ and became one of the first ever female recruits to qualify for the programme.

Vicki has carefully created and crafted an entirely unique barre fitness programme over the past 10 years and has a dedicated following in South-West London. Along with her highly-trained team, she trains a vast array of clientele from ‘everyday’ individuals to elite-level athletes and everything in-between. She believes that every sport and every individual keen to improve their performance or movement patterns can learn a tremendous amount from the discipline of ballet and barre.


Since her participation in SAS: Who Dares Wins, Vicki has become an advocate for women’s resilience, grit and determination, inspiring others to exploit their genetic potential (physical and mental). She believes in training for general physical preparedness, and that achievement doesn’t have to be constrained by talent – we all have it in us to succeed if we are driven to do so.


“Resilience, grit, determination are all traits that can be learned, developed and applied to aspects of our daily lives – whether you’re running a business, a home, a family or taking on an extreme challenge. Think of it like a kind of ‘ordinary magic’ that anyone can learn.

Training our bodies and minds to be at our best, when we are at our worst and unlocking our true genetic potential is when we really discover who we are and what we are capable of.”


Vicki’s inspiring personal story and journey to success in business and physical adventure have made her a sought after personality on the speaking circuit.

Vicki is scheduled to speak at her first Ted X at the Rose Theatre Kingston on 11th January 2020.


She will share her story of reclaiming her power under the title ‘cutting through the noise’.

In June 2020, Vicki will undertake her greatest challenge yet.

She and 3 other ordinary women, ‘Girls Who Dare’ will set off to row 4,000km from California across the Pacific Ocean to Honolulu, Hawaii. They will row for 2 hours on, 2 hours off from start to finish and at times be closer to satellites in space than land.

The team are united by their passion for sport and individual challenges that have shaped them into women who jump at the chance to push their boundaries, physically and mentally. 

They want to inspire others to dream big, dare to set challenges and push their way out of their comfort zone. They want to encourage others to reap the life long benefits to body and mind that sport can bring.

To achieve their World Record goal and inspire as many girls and women as possible, they need your help. If you would like to find out more about this incredible adventure, support the team either through sponsorship or awareness, click here.
