WHO AM I?
I’m a female personal trainer with many years experience helping women enjoy movement and exercise. I have often felt, that I don’t fit in…but it is for a good reason.
I don’t believe in working towards a stylised vision of physical perfection, with a no pain no gain attitude and huge emphasis on weight loss, meal plans and food restrictions. Many years of experience has taught me that this fails to create sustainable change. This focus on being super thin and an ‘ideal form’ is unobtainable for so many women. This leads to a destructive and negative self-image and a pattern of yo-yo dieting and exercise.
I believe in finding pleasure in movement, eating food that makes you feel good, so you can be your best self. I believe in living well because of how it makes you feel and the positive effect this has on your mental, as well as your physical, health.
I have learned that the focus should always be on enjoyment. Learning to actually enjoy movement, so you can consistently do it, is the best way to kick-start a positive change, towards a healthy and balanced life.
AT ENJOY TRAINING I WILL HELP YOU TO….
Enjoy Movement – embrace movement, how it makes you feel and how it energises you
Enjoy Outdoors – enjoy nature and the positive impact it has on mental well-being
Enjoy Balance – forget good and bad, enjoy the diversity that life offers
Enjoy Inclusivity – movement is for everybody, and no one should feel they don’t ‘fit’
Enjoy Feeling it – embrace feeling good, being energised and enjoying what makes you feel good
Enjoy Real Food – lots of plant-based foods, no food group exclusions or unnecessary supplements
