At Body Basics I offer a personal training/strength training/ one on one personal trainer  and weight loss service  to help you achieve your personal goals. From entry fitness and weight loss through  to first event, half marathon, marathon training all the way to professional athlete status.

I work alongside a very well known nutritionist in the industry and together we can support you.

My values


It's important to me that I am accountable to myself to help you achieve your goals. This means we need to trust each and work together, regularly reviewing things and progress as we go, while setting goals that are realistic with times frames and rewards.


It's always more fun training with others, and I enjoy the relationships that come from working together on our wellbeing. The laughter and chats that come allow us to create deeper relationships which also benefits our wellbeing.


I love being able to have a positive impact on the people I work with. It's a special thing to be part of someone's journey to a better life for them and their family.


I am the biggest supporter of the people I work with, helping them grow and overcome any challenges and hurdles. I accept everyone as they are, and can often relate to many challenges from my own journey. 


Because I love what I do so much I'm pretty enthusiastic about it. There is nothing better than being able to walk the journey alongside people who are working towards improving their


Building long lasting relationships with my clients is really important to me. I aim to ensure you feel comfortable so that you can be honest and share any challenges that might be holding
you back.
