Rosemary Conley Biography
Rosemary Conley born Rosemary Jean Neil Conley, is an English businesswoman, author, diet and fitness expert, and broadcaster on exercise and health.
Rosemary Conley was born on 19 December 1946 in Leicester, United Kingdom, to Oswald Weston, Celia Weston. She was brought up in a house with an acre of garden in the Leicestershire countryside. Her father was a hosiery wholesaler and her mother invented a beauty cap to go over ladies’ hair curlers; both were entrepreneurial and that may be where Conley got her business sense from.
She left school at 15 for secretarial college and then worked in an office before becoming a Tupperware lady in 1970. Rosemary Conley became one of the biggest names in the diet and fitness industry when she launched her book The Hip And Thigh Diet in 1988.
In 1993, Rosemary and her husband and business partner, Mike Rimmington, launched Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Clubs to give additional help, support and motivation to people following her diet and fitness programmes. The national network of clubs was a franchise operation, with 170 professionally qualified exercise teachers running 2,000 weekly classes across the UK for over 70,000 members.
Just two years after its launch, the British Franchise Association presented Rosemary Conley Diet & Fitness Clubs with its Newcomer of the Year Award and, in 1998, the organisation was presented with the national BFA/Midland Bank Award. In 2002 and 2005, it won the coveted BFA Franchisor of the Year Award.
From 1996 to 2000 Rosemary was a consultant to Marks & Spencer and helped them to develop their low fat, calorie-controlled food range.
Rosemary has presented her own TV series on BBC and ITV as well as appearing on ‘This Morning’ with Richard and Judy for seven years. She continues to have a high media profile with many regular appearances on national television and Radio. Rosemary appeared on ITV1’s Dancing on Ice, where, at 65 years old, she was the oldest celebrity to make it the furthest in the history of Dancing on Ice – an outstanding achievement.
In December 2001, Rosemary was granted the Freedom of the City of Leicester, the first woman to receive this honour.
Rosemary was one of the invited guests at a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Her Majesty The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh in October 2003 to mark the contribution of Pioneers to the life of the nation.
Rosemary Conley was delighted to be made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in the New Year’s Honours for 2004, for her services to the fitness and diet industries.
