Personal Fitness Trainer and Lifestyle Coach

This isn’t about getting a six pack or a bubble butt and quite frankly I don’t care how many press-ups you can do or if you can dead lift a cow. I care how you feel.

I believe that to have a beautiful body a person has to feel beautiful in their body.

And I believe that YOU can feel beautiful.

I also believe that deep down in there somewhere, no matter what your mind is saying to you and how you feel right now, rolling your eyes at me or not, you know this is true.

I don’t think you really believe hundreds of hours in the gym lifting heavy weights and running up and down stairs is going to change how you feel inside; Or that by getting the right pair of jeans or make-up collection you’re somehow going to change the way you feel when you look in the mirror.

You also probably know that there is more to life than trying to keep up with the latest fitness trend, counting calories and tracking how many steps you’ve done.

Maybe you don’t quite believe it right now, but you can change the way you feel in your body and learn to love it, adore it and walk around feeling beautiful.

You can find the joy in fitness and learn to make movement part of your lifestyle and not just a chore to be done. And you can build strength, flexibility and stamina both mentally and physically. It might be hard to imagine this is possible, but I know it is.

Sometimes life is hard, we cry, we lose things, we love and circumstances change and with it our priorities might have to, but we do not have to fall apart.

You can learn to be resilient and develop a toolbox of skills to move through life with so you can maintain the best version of yourself that you can; to feel as good as possible, as often as possible.

This IS possible.

You can join me and the many other people who are on this journey if you want to.

You can come exactly as you are right now and we will find a way to work together.

Welcome – please have a look around, ask questions and share your thoughts.

Why I do it

I know what it is like to struggle with your body (and mind) and not know what to do. As a youth I did gymnastics, trampolining and athletics. As an adult I have been through the mill of gyms, aerobics, dance workouts, running, cycling, spinning, pilates, yoga, interval training, you name it I’ve tried it and I’ve also done a lot of nothing and hiding from it all. I despaired, hated, violated, rejected, battled and resisted my body for as long as I can remember, not looking in mirrors, not wanting to be seen and my behavior patterns were unhealthy.  But now,  years of working towards re-training myself, my habits, my mind, changing my lifestyle, working hard, asking for help and support has paid off – in a big way – the journey continues, but I overcome the biggest hurdles and now I help other people do the same.

I have suffered with disordered eating, addiction and depression and work daily and consistently to keep myself happy and healthy. There is maintenance involved, it isn’t always easy, but I have a lot of experience in how to do this and keep myself ‘up’ and safe from slipping down again.

It has taken me years of effort to get to where I am now and luckily I have learned enough to feel confident and able to help other people. I am still learning and testing and see myself as a ‘partner/encourager/motivator’ in people’s experience. By no means do I claim to know it all or have a quick fix – this isn’t the way it works.

I am currently studying for my NVQ Level 4 in Advanced Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as continuing my self-study and research into Yoga, Myofacial Release, Mobility and body-awareness practices, nutrition, importance of circadian rhythms, and all of that etc. and so on. I am a ‘nerd’ as they say, and attend classes, read books, watch endless videos and love nothing better than to geek out over ideas and practices and see how they work/if they are effective.

I think the body is an incredible thing and we owe it to ourselves to love it and nurture it. If we look after our body, our life improves in all areas.

Healthy living and exercise can decrease stress, reduce pain and develop a positive body image all of which support a happier more fulfilled life. I have quit drinking and smoking and taken up yoga, fitness and dance in the past 5 years and know how hard it can be to break bad habits and learn good ones, but it can be done and I can help people do it.

I am kind, encouraging, committed and compassionate. I am not a slave driver, but I will make you work and address your problems face on, with constructive feedback, dialogue and a smile. Reshaping our body and the life it lives is a difficult thing to do and I aim to make it a positive journey that people want to be on.

I know how much your life can change if you lose that little bit of extra weight, if you can fit into the dress you used to wear 5 years ago, if you don’t feel self conscious about your belly for the bikini season, how incredible it feels to finally be able to do the splits, lose that ‘baby’ fat on your arms and finally see the muscle tone in your arms! In the past I struggled and despaired and hid my body and hated it, but through diet, yoga, positive  dialogue with myself and  a consistent practice I am no longer in a desperate battle. I have found methods that work and I can help people do the same.
