My fitness teaching includes individual and small group sessions designed to meet the needs and goals of each person.
“I can absolutely recommend Katie as a personal trainer.. I have been having weekly p.t sessions with Katie for two months. My target was to run 5k at the end of those two months for a childrens charity.. When i started i could barely run 30 seconds without having to stop, i reached my goal and i couldnt have done it without her. I also wanted to tone up and loose inches, along side healthy eating and also attending some of Katies fitness classes i am extremely happy with the results. Katie is very encouraging and helps you to just push on past what would normally be your limit to reach your goals,,I will continue to use Katie as there is always a new target to reach. She is well worth every penny…”Stephanie
“I have been working with Katie for nearly a year and I’m chuffed with the results! I’ve managed to overcome my mental barrier to getting out for a run and Katie has helped me set and achieve my goals around that and my body shape. She keeps me motivated and makes it pleasurable with her warm, generous and gently challenging but effective style.”Bindu
