A message from Debbie…

Stressed, tired, frustrated, don’t know how to get started with fitness? As a Personal Trainer, I can help you!

I understand – that was me. I worked in the corporate world and barely had any time for myself. I even stopped exercising completely when I had my daughter. After 5 years, I reassessed my priorities and left to pursue a career as a Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor. I promised myself I would focus on helping people like you (people like I used to be) get healthier, fitter, and slimmer.

Work, commuting, kids, career, home life… they can all make health and fitness seem an impossible task. I promise to show you exactly how you can get fitter and healthier even on your busiest days. I’ll give you the knowledge, the tools, and the ongoing support.

I’ve always thought exercise should be fun. I loved classes, and exercising with friends but… here’s a secret… I never enjoyed just going to the gym by myself. So I can understand why you might feel the same way. Fitness can be so much fun that you barely know you’re exercising (until your body starts changing and the compliments start rolling in!)

I’m a Level 3 Personal Trainer (including Metabolic Effect), Biomechanics Coach, Pre and Post Natal and Pilates Instructor. I’m also qualified to teach Boxercise and Exercise to Music and teach the popular Les Mills classes BODYPUMP and BODY BALANCE at local health clubs.

Don’t take my work for it, here’s what my clients say…

I was looking for a personal trainer that would make exercise fun as well as effective and that’s what I found in Debbie. From the first meeting, her bubbly personality and desire to understand me and what I wanted to achieve was infectious.  She introduced a range of approaches which kept up my interest levels and challenged me mentally as well as physically.  I went from doing anything to avoid exercise to looking forward to my sessions with her!  Having worked with Debbie, I am stronger, fitter and more motivated to keep it going. I would recommend Debbie to anyone – particularly those who do want to get fitter but are nervous about starting.
Debbie and I started working together in autumn 2011 with the focus being on a planned 7 day long distance walk that my partner and I had intended to do. My main goal at the time was “just to complete it!”. From the initial assessment we set up small achievable goals, which would help me reach my long term aim the following year. The main aim was for me to get to a level of fitness where I could walk a considerable distance without feeling like oxygen was required. Through fortnightly personal training sessions Debbie’s patience was invaluable – if there was an excuse for me to not do it I would find it. The approach that Debbie had taken with me was one of patience and support – not to “tell” me to do things but to encourage me to exercise. Debbie set up 30 minute bite size work outs for me to do in between our sessions and they were easy to understand, with pictures and clear instructions to help guide me. Our sessions always differ in content, which means that you are never quite sure what Debbie has in store for you, which is great. We have, since my walking holiday had an assessment session and the results this time were really positive – BMI down, inches lost and most important resting heart beat has decreased! We are now starting to plan my next set of small achievable goals and I really cannot wait!
I have gone from being an individual who didn’t do any exercise to someone who positively looks forward to her fitness sessions each week – thank you Debbie!
I arranged a few sessions of PT with Debbie after my motivation started to dip. She devised an exercise plan that gave me maximum benefit for minimum time – perfect for getting me back into the swing. The routine could also be easily cut down into shorter chunks if I was time constrained, which was a real bonus. The exercises were simple but hugely effective. I certainly always knew I’d done a work out the day after! And Debbie’s motivational style works brilliantly! There was at least one session where I started wishing I didn’t have to, but within a few minutes I was gritting my teeth and giving it my all! I will certainly be arranging some more sessions with Debbie in the future.
Mid way through 2013 I decided I really needed some help in getting started with improving my fitness.  As a working mum of an 18 month old and a husband away on business travel regularly I felt very restricted, no opportunity to go to a gym during the day & no option of going out in the evening.  Meeting Debbie for the first time was extremely nerve racking, I had no idea what to expect from a personal trainer but Debbie put me at ease immediately.  It was clear she understood the challenges I faced.  My biggest concern was around if I had enough space to train but after the initial meeting I felt it was completely possible.  Over the next few months Debbie slowly introduced new exercises each session,  they were challenging but with her constant support I found myself wanting to go further than the previous session each time.  I felt more and more motivated and started doing more in between sessions as my confidence grew.  My absolute favourite training was the boxing, something I didn’t think I would enjoy but I found I could get really focussed and find a really calm place which both was great exercise and reduced my stress levels.  I have tried to get back into exercise before through gyms and classes, even without the lifestyle restrictions I had really not had much success.  I really don’t believe I could have got into the regular routines, stayed motivated and felt good about exercising in the way I do without Debbie’s help.  I would recommend anyone wanting to get their confidence up and to get motivation to book session with Debbie.
Having decided it was time to change my lifestyle for the better, and would benefit from a personal trainer, I contacted Debs. It was the best thing I’ve ever done! From our initial meeting for coffee, she has given me encouragement, support and invaluable guidance as I tentatively head towards my fitness goals. As someone who has never enjoyed or been any good at exercise, my weekly sessions with Debs are now something that I look forward to all week and always finish too quickly. As someone with a history of back pain, I always feel completely comfortable with the challenges Debs sets and she is able to draw on her extensive knowledge and experience to tailor each session accordingly with no fuss. I would not hesitate to encourage anyone to give Personal Training with Debs a go – she’ll be your greatest support and help you reach your goals quickly and safely while having loads of fun!
My husband approached Debbie as a birthday present as I had been complaining about not having enough time to exercise. I didn’t want to join a gym but just needed a kick start so I could juggle work and the children. Life is hectic and I just couldn’t see how I could get fit and loose weight in time for a big birthday and a wedding this year! ……and then Debbie arrived. Debbie gave me simple exercises that I have continued to do around the house (the kids think I’m crazy!). The exercises were simple and effective and her sessions left me energised rather than exhausted and dreading the next one. We achieved great results in a short space of time and I am continuing with the programme she gave me as I can fit it in to my day! I cannot recommend Debbie enough, she listens, adapts and is supportive. All you need to do is stop saying ‘ I don’t have time to exercise ‘.
I started training with Debbie to try and loose baby(toddler) weight and get fit in general. She was so friendly and easygoing it was easy to feel comfortable with her. I’d never had a trainer before but she explained everything (repeatedly) and was so patient! She is tough in a gentle way and really is positive in her motivation. We trained outside and I loved it, the fresh air and having a laugh made the time go so fast. I’d thoroughly recommend Debbie to anyone, especially if you’re nervous, as she just puts you at ease immediately.
I booked a series of session with Debbie earlier this year to focus my exercise regime which was a little haphazard! I had been injured previously during classes using weights, and was very nervous about attempting body pump and kettle bells again. I did really enjoy this type of class though and was keen to be able to attend again. Debbie immediately spotted a few issues with my technique, and we worked on this over the weeks. I was very pleased with the sessions we had, I felt much more confident in my own abilities, and have been able to attend body pump again! Debbie’s sessions were hard work, but enjoyable. She is very knowledgeable, and made me feel totally at ease. I would recommend her to anyone contemplating improving their fitness regime.

At the tail end of 2014 I took the decision that it was time to motivate myself to exercise; I hate the gym and really did not want a PT that told me what to do. With replacement knees and other leg complications I needed someone who listened, cared and inspired me. I contacted Debbie and have not looked back. Poor Debbie puts up with my swearing, she puts up with my dogs barking at her, she puts up with my determination and she puts up with my look of ‘ you want me to do that?’

Debbie is inspirational and understands people – the best compliment I can give her; because she gets me I automatically trust her and work during the sessions we have. It seems we shall work together for a while yet – sorry Debbie – you are, as they say, stuck with me.

After being something of a gym bunny doing back to back classes and loving it to getting a condition that stopped me in my tracks I found myself with very weak muscles and lethargic, not being one that ever thought that Pilates was a “proper ” form of exercise I thought I’d give Debbie a go, how wrong I was ! After only a few months of Pilates and one to one PT sessions I am now fitter more toned and have lost inches!! And with lots of healthy diet tips it’s made it so easy to follow and keep on track. Thanks Debs your a star.
I can’t believe the difference that Debbie’s Pilates classes have made to my posture and strength in just a few weeks. Highly recommended!
