I’ve been there done it and got the T shirt!!!
My aim is to educate, motivate and inspire clients to change their lifestyle and help them to shape their future.
I have not always been a personal trainer….in fact I used lead a very unhealthy lifestyle, which consisted of an unhealthy diet and very little exercise. This caused me to become overweight and be very unhappy. I always wanted to be,a slimmer, fitter and more confident person.
By changing my habits and investing in my life I have been able to run 10k races, half marathons and The London Marathon. Trek the Sahara Desert and cycled many miles for my favourite charities, stay fit and feel good ! Whilst achieving all this I qualified as a personal trainer and also a GP and exercise referral instructor. specializing in helping people with Obesity and/or Diabetes.I have the knowledge, expertise and experience to help you make the changes to your lifestyle that will make a huge difference to your overall health. Providing encouragement and support every step of the way.
I have also developed a passion for Pilates. Diagnosed with degenerative disc disease at the age of 26 I know how hard it is to cope when pain hits. I was first introduced to Pilates when I had to undergo a spinal procedure and my surgeon highly recommended Pilates to me as a form of rehabilitation. Read my story here Here
I’ve lost a stone in 10 weeks-what’s more is I’ve dropped a dress size and my body has changed shape! It’s all down to the expert help, advice, coaching and encouragement I had when it got hard.
I couldn’t have managed it without Jane. Her passion and drive for her job was apparent the second I met her. She wasted no time in discussing and setting reachable goals and targets. I couldn’t wait to get started.
Jane returned a few days later with a plan. This had been tailor made and was flexible to fit with my busy life as a wife and a working mum with two boys who have better social lives than mine! Jane also helped me understand the need for healthy eating and gave me advice on food labels.
The plan was put into action! Jane was prompt and well turned out on every occasion, a smile on her face and ready to go. Even after a hard day and the last thing I wanted to do was exercise, Jane’s enthusiasm got me working. Though out each session Jane supported me with confidence boosting comments that instantly made me feel better about myself. We went out in all weathers but because of my lifestyle Jane encouraged me to think of other forms of exercise that I could do either at home indoors or outside to fit my needs.
I want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to you Jane-you have made a massive difference to me and my live!

We started with a consultation to find out my needs, followed by a full-health assessment test which helped us work out my specific goals. Jane then designed an individual training plan for me. This plan evolved as I got stronger and better at the training.
I was a reluctant gym user. Jane introduced me fully to all the facilities available and I can now confidently use all the equipment. The variety is stunning! Jane talked me through what the training was actually doing which I found very motivational.
We decided on 1 hour sessions which were challenging but do-able. I’m getting so much more out of my working day now as I feel fitter and healthier. Some weeks we go running together and then go into the gym, other weeks we spend all the time in the gym and I run on my own. The schedule changes keep me on my toes! Jane also tells me it stops me from plateau-ing in my fitness level.
She helped me learn to run which, for me, was the most efficient and easiest cardio-vascular activity. The convenience of this has meant I can fit more activity into my very busy days with a demanding job and 2 children waiting for me at the end of the day.
We also looked at nutrition and Jane offered me excellent advice on how to eat and drink more healthily without being a complete Saint. As a consequence to all the above in 12 weeks I lost 3% of my body fat, and therefore inches around my waist and hips. What a result!
I can whole-heartedly recommend Jane to you if you want a trainer who is thoughtful, discreet, fun, energising, motivational, dynamic and very professional.
“After getting ready for an evening out I looked in the mirror and thought WOW I look great!!! I think that’s the first time I’ve ever said that to myself and it’s all down to Jane. I feel good on the inside and look good on the outside – what more could a girl ask for!”
Since beginning Bootcamp with Jane, my general level of fitness has increased tenfold. It gives me much more than fitness alone, its fun, friendly and with the help of a Personal Trainer I have noticed results in body shape as well as my general fitness.
Jane’s complete commitment to the group ensures we continue to make progress with a wide variety of exercises to master! All aspects of Bootcamp have proved to be challenging but extremely enjoyable. I would recommend Jane and her training program to anyone interested in improving their health and well being in both a fun and a challenging environment.
