Are you ready for a fitter, stronger, more powerful you?
I'm interested in changing your life; a habit based approach that allows you to incorporate your health goals into a lifestyle that works for you, and packages provide the best way to deliver outstanding and holistic support that truly care for the individual. I believe wholeheartedly in making small, sustainable changes that will ultimately transform your life.
I will help you achieve your goals, whatever they might be. However, whilst results are important, they are not the be all and end all. This is because I do not believe they should be pursued at the sacrifice of other aspects of your life, well being and mind-set. This is what sets me apart; I take a much more rounded approach to improving your life. These are not just quick fixes; I give you the tools to get the results and lifestyle you want.
Other changes which you may never have considered yet will surprise you, and they will improve your quality of life far more than just weight loss or muscle gain etc. alone. When personal training with me, each person will also see increased energy levels, master new skills, feel more body confident, look in the mirror and be proud, feel stronger, happier and more powerful than the person they were yesterday.
That's my ultimate goal; to empower people.
Why choose me?
Prepare for a completely different approach. I am not just a personal trainer.
I don’t have your average personal trainer skill set. I am unique in offering a holistic care package; fitness, wellness and yoga. As one of the very few female personal trainers in Harrogate, I can offer something that health and fitness companies and other personal trainers do not: the time to personalise everything to you, the care to look after every aspect of your journey and the experience to help you see it through.
My education background is in Science and then I taught Chemistry in a secondary school for 7 years; managing teenagers is not to be underestimated! I am a highly experienced educator and motivator and I excel at encouraging growth mind set; the belief that you can do it.
I am trained in vinyasa flow yoga. Yoga helps connect your mind and body - it helps create both strength and suppleness in your body, as well as peace and equanimity in your mind. I have realised the importance of wellness and balance in life and I can help you achieve that in yours too.

Free initial consultation
Your first session is free! Be prepared for this to take longer than the normal hour as the extra time is to ensure a thorough understanding and assessment of your personal fitness history, nutrition, lifestyle, goals and motivators.
Your personal training
Receive a programme which has time and thought put in to make it completely tailored to you, and see progress towards your goals quicker than you think. You choose a monthly plan that includes either one or two weekly training sessions. If so desired, a custom plan of exercise sessions to complete outside of your contact time can also be designed for you. Be prepared to do exercise you enjoy, not just ‘get down and give me 20!’, however, be prepared to work HARD in your sessions.
You will receive an invitation to have an account with my app, which will allow you to view you workouts, log your progress and your nutrition – all in an easy handy place where I can see and communicate with you. The app is a fantastic way to stay accountable and to help you feel like ‘we’re in this together.’ Just part of the 5* service.
The location of your sessions can be anywhere you choose; outside in the park, on the Stray, in your home, or in a private gym facility. We can accommodate your sessions around your day. I travel anywhere in Harrogate and the surrounding areas, including Knaresborough, Ripon and surrounding villages. If you are unsure, ask!
Expert advice in fitness and nutrition
Receive a full assessment of your current nutrition and then embark on my habit-based system, involving changes that are easy to make and that can have a big effect. I want to see people moving away from a life led by restrictions, calories counting and diets and focusing more instead on making choices that make them feel better. And heard about the latest fitness fad? Get an expert opinion on that and make better, more informed choices about how you choose to move.
Unlimited* contact outside of sessions for advice and support
A personal trainer shouldn’t be limited to one hour a week. That’s what makes it personal. If you’re having a bad motivation day, or in a restaurant struggling what to decide to order from a menu, you know advice and support are just moments away right when you need it most. With a sense of accountability, it will also help keep you on track with your goals.
Clients often find this support the most helpful as usually the most difficult part of their week is not their 1 hour training session; it’s what happens in between! Knowing that someone is there to support your fitness goals no matter what is often the most important thing that keeps clients going through the tough times.
*excluding evenings after 8pm and Sundays
Water and towel provided for each session
I believe in outstanding customer service; looking after you and making your sessions as easy for you as possible. Never worry about forgetting your water or towel for a session again! Having a sense that somebody is there to make your day easier is a perk worth having and it will certainly add to your sense of comfort during the session. Bring a sense of luxury and pampering to your sessions.
Wellness advice, monthly goals
This aspect of the package works on improving your wellbeing. This is so important in our busy modern lives where we spend most of our time doing rather than being. It sets monthly goals which are small and manageable changes that integrate positive habits into your life. Receive advice about meditation, self-care, mindfulness and making time for you.
Pay As You Go Sessions
Sometimes a one-off Pay As You Go session fits our commitments better. If you are signed up to a package, it will have all the regular benefits of your normal package. Contact me for more details.
The perfect complement to your training, yoga allows you to stretch, breathe, and recover better from your sessions. It opens up space to allow you to be in the moment, and by focusing on the process, the flow and the poses, it allows you to process emotions and feel more at one with yourself.
