"Jill is a fantastic, positive and encouraging addition to my life, I truly recommend her to help you make the changes you want to improve your fitness and health." Female client via Facebook, Feb 2017.
Hello and thank you for reading my profile. I am an independent Personal Trainer with many years experience, specialising in home and outdoor fitness for all ages: pre and post natal exercise, running fitness, strength and conditioning, weight loss/nutrition, sports conditioning, endurance, medical referral and many more.
My approach is simple: the right exercises, the right intensity, safe progression, and good nutrition. The commitment I make to all of my clients is to provide trusted, proven professional support without fads or false promises. Everything is individual to you, in an environment of your choice, and you can be confident that the advice and support you get will be professional, unbiased, focused on your health and right for you.
I radically changed my own fitness in my 30's, and went on to become British Masters marathon champion in 2011 and county medallist in many running distances from 5k upwards. As a mother of two small children, I also understand many of the challenges of fitting health and fitness into a busy life and am able to use my own experience and training to support my clients.
For more information or to book a free consultation, please message or telephone 07808 925737. I am based in Bocking, Braintree and provide Personal Training across the majority of North Essex.

Jill is simply the best, tough but supportive with a great sense of fun for her "childlike" clients - animal star charts have kept me going through my 50 x 5k challenge - topping my best 5k time with a 30 + second improvement and hitting my goals with 9 days remaining - thanks Boss.
My personal training began end of sept, in the few months Jill has been working with me my fitness and food knowledge has immensely improved.
Gone are the fad diets and quick fixes - Jill has educated me on a complete life style change not only to gain the results I wish for but to promote healthy living, and the effect it's has on my life has been more effective than any I've tried in the past!
