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!

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.

We are so pleased with Jill and the changes she has made to our fitness in a relatively short time. Jill is a friendly and reliable personal trainer with many years experience and is extremely competent. Not being people that enjoy going to the gym, Jill has made the PT sessions varied and fun and pushes you to make the extra effort to achieve your fitness goals. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jill to anyone that wants to get fit. More...

Jill was recommended to me by a friend when I wanted to start running. She really listened to my goals and helped me every step of the way to be where I am now. She tailors her approach to her clients and I am just one of many who have been thrilled with the end result, both from a personal training point of view, as well as nutritional and weight loss advice and meal plans. Would recommend her to anyone. More...

I take a broad and individual approach to Personal Training that provides support across many parts of health and fitness: nutrition, lifestyle, activity, fitness testing, progress tracking, posture and of course strength/cardio fitness - I believe good PT is about more than just a brief 1-2-1 training session.

If needed I will work closely with you to look at exactly what you want to achieve, what your personal barriers to fitness are, and what motivates you most, and will use multiple fitness checks to understand where your current fitness levels, strengths and weaknesses are. You can expect simple, professional and informed advice at all times - I don't follow fads or gimmicks, or try to upsell products or diet plans.

Here are comments from some of my clients:
"Jill was amazing - I lost 2st before my wedding, and had the confidence to wear a backless dress. She kept me on track, and helped me through some really stressful moments. " Female, 32, Chelmsford​​

"Without Jill, climbing the Cuillin Ridge would have been truly daunting. With the preparation she gave, it was a thrill and an experience of a life-time. Jill is fantastic to work with and we have continued to train with her long after the event. We are now eagerly looking forward to our next challenge!" Male and female couple, Witham

"The thing I love about Jill is that when I feel I need to stop, she doesn't shout or argue - she just talks me through it, then suddenly I find myself back at it working harder than ever." Female client, 33, Braintree

"I underestimated Jill - she doesn't take any prisoners!" Male client, Great Baddow.

To throw 'body perfect' and 'beach body' fitness cultures out of the window and concentrate on being healthy, happy and able to do the things you want to do.

I love the fact that everyone I meet in my job is different and individual.

I know that everyone has different goals and different things that stop them from reaching those goals - my approach is always unique for everyone I work with. I spend as much time as necessary getting to understand my client's needs and what motivates them. I don't think good Personal Training is about promises of quick wins, because these are often short lived. Instead I try to work with people to put in place positive long-term changes.


1-2-1 personal training at your home or workplace, using a variety of professional fitness equipment. All training is completely individual and includes fitness checks, training plans, home workouts, corrective exercises, telephone/text support in between sessions and nutrition advice written specifically for you to support your personal goals.

Outdooor training on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups, in beautiful surroundings. This is NOT Boot Camp training, but tailored personal fitness using outdoor surroundings. From £20 per person, including fitness portfolios and nutrition support.

Running can be one of the most satisfying, relaxing and beneficial forms of exercise, but many runners place undue stress on their joints through poor technique. Others are put off by exercising outdoors in front of people, or simply don't know where to start.

I will analyse your running technique and muscle balance, teach you how to warm up and cool down safely, give you exercises to improve posture and reduce the risk of running injury, accompany you on outdoor runs and develop a personalised running programme to get your fitness up to whatever level you want to achieve.

I cater for both complete beginners and advanced runners - clients who have come to me lacking the confidence to exercise outdoors now run regularly with friends and take part in Park Runs and 5k's. I also help competitive runners improve their Personal Bests - I will train with you, pace you for optimum benefit, review your training schedule and make sure you are genuinely pushed to reach your potential.

As with all personal training, everything is supported with advice on nutrition whether for weight loss, energy, muscle growth or race-day preparation.

Qualified with Level 3 Pre & Post Natal Exercise, I will help you to understand the changes taking place in your body and respond through your exercise programme; ensure correct posture during exercise; make sure exercise intensity is safe and right for your stage of pregnancy; advise on good nutrition for you and your baby during pregnancy. After your baby is born, I can support you with gentle activity, stretches and work on your pelvic floor and monitor your physical revovery until it is safe to recommence your structured programme. I will then support you with the best ways to recover and stay active while caring for your baby, and will happily fit in around your new family life.
