About Enjoy Training
Meet Carole Dowling founder of Enjoy Training. A female personal trainer based in Tunbridge Wells Carole has many years experience helping women enjoy movement and exercise.
“Exercising in the gym often made me feel isolated, and as a personal trainer I think most people expect me to crack the whip and push my clients to extremes to get results, my approach to fitness is different and has often made me feel that I don’t fit in…but now I know it is for a good reason. I don’t believe in quick fixes, body transformations, meal plans, food restrictions and weight loss as the motivating goal. Many years of experience has taught me that these methods fail to create sustainable change and more commonly lead to negative self-image and a pattern of yo-yo dieting and exercise.
I believe in exercising because you enjoy it and it makes you feel good (everyone can have this positive exercise experience, I promise!) likewise I also believe in eating food that makes you feel good too.
I have learned that it really helps if the focus is on enjoyment and feeling the benefits of exercise. The lift in your mood, the rise in your energy levels, the increased focus and reduction in stress, the increased strength and power. Exercise is a powerful tool for mental and physical health and my job is to inspire, educate and motivate you to embrace it. I’ll do the same for food too!” - Carole Dowling: Enjoy Training Founder

“As a female personal trainer I often coach women who ‘don’t enjoy’ exercise or feel they’ve never really found their fitness mojo. I want them to feel supported and encouraged to embrace exercise. To help them enjoy exercise so they are fitter, stronger and more energised for life, to make them feel welcome and included in a fitness environment so it becomes a sustainable choice.
