What People Say

Jon Mahoney - "Nicole is a really friendly and encouraging coach, a real expert in mobility, the Olympic lifts and a whole lot more. It's great to see more and more coaches who help you get better rather than just tired."



Debbie Louise - "I can't rate Nicole high enough for her professionalism and expertise as a personal trainer. I loved every training session with Nicole, especially the early morning sessions on the beach. I can't recommend Nicole enough, she is very sensitive to the abilities (or lack of it in my case) of others and adapts exercises to suit the individual. I will definitely be booking further sessions in the future. Thank you Nicole"



Jane Maylor - "Very professional Personal Trainer who very quickly found out what was important to me and how we could get the most out of sessions as well as things I could do at home. Whatever the time of the session everything was done with a friendly smile, great advice and an approachable manner."
