Hi! I’m Rachel; Personal trainer and nutrition coach. My passion and experience lies in helping those who struggle with low self-esteem to develop and grow their confidence through exercise and an improved relationship with food.
Irrespective of bodyweight, size or shape, many people suffer from a lack of self-esteem which can cause them to withdraw in social situations or fail to meet their full potential at work; for others, it can lead to anxiety, depression or an eating disorder. Ultimately, low self-esteem denies people important and enjoyable life experiences, and that’s where I want to step in and make a difference.
The excellent news is that self-confidence can be acquired: The key lies in dedicating just a little bit of time to care for yourself. Physical exercise can be extremely beneficial as it provides a progressive, attainable goal. As you begin lifting heavier, running further and pushing your aspirations higher, the sense of pride and empowerment that will accompany your achievements can help rebuild self-efficacy. Learning how to nourish and fuel your body effectively and gaining control of any unhealthy eating habits can also help to reduce self-criticism and boost self-esteem and will play an essential part in supporting your fitness goals.

>>> NUTRITION COACHING
I’m a great believer that exercise is only the half of it, and unless you’re eating right for your goals, you’re not going to get the best health results. With all personal training packages I also provide expert nutrition advice and support. This will cover everything from the basics of nutrition and healthy eating to addressing any unhelpful eating habits. There will be no fads, and definitely no dieting! My approach is to educate and coach you towards a better understanding of the nutrition your body requires, so that you can gain control of your eating and make the right food choices moving forwards.
I take a gentle, supportive approach to training . This isn't bootcamp - I’m here to provide that little bit of extra guidance and accountability you might be needing, and I want you to know that I care about your results just as much as you do.
