Certified Fitness Trainer
and Personal Coach
With over a decade of experience I specialise in helping clients (men & women) build positive sustainable strategies for change.
Passionate about fitness, my goal is to inspire others to adopt a healthier, fitter lifestyle in the simplest and most realistic way possible.
A mom of 3 (a daughter and twin boys), I’ve been a personal trainer for almost 12 years. In 2009 at a gym in Riyadh I was offered the opportunity to become an instructor. I initially qualified as an aerobics instructor and have since added Yoga Teacher, Personal Trainer, Pilates instructor, Outdoor Fitness Instructor & Nutritional Specialist to my skillset.
In 2017 we returned to the UK, moved back into the family home and set up Bourne Training, offering fitness classes and Personal Training in the New Forest.
I teach all levels from beginner to advanced and nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing clients ‘get it’ and achieve their goals.
I am a huge proponent of bodyweight exercises; their variety, versatility and effectiveness mean they form a significant chunk of my sessions, personal training exercise programs and my own training.
I love outdoor exercise; it invigorates the spirit and provides more energy for the mind and body. Physical activity outdoors lowers a person's blood pressure and heart rate whilst enjoying the benefits of fresh outdoor air, natural light and ever changing scenery.
I believe living a healthy lifestyle begins with maintaining a strong and fit body. We create strong foundations, then build upon them.
My aim is to help you identify your fitness goals, design an exercise program that fits your needs and guide you through every exercise, every workout.
My holistic approach to fitness and health will have you feeling great and seeing results in no time.
My motto: Commit – Progress – Sustain. You’ve got to show up for the experience, body and soul; without commitment you will not achieve the goals you have set and not be able to progress as you expect.
The Ultimate Method to Change Your Life
It's important to start slowly and increase the intensity as you build your fitness level up. A daily amount of physical activity and a nutritious diet is needed for good health, allowing your body to rest is important too.
All sessions are tailored to your abilities and whilst participating you will understand how to perform exercises correctly to maximise their benefits, prevent injury and attain your goals. I don't just tell you how to do it, I show you how it's done.
Exercising should be fun and do you good, not stress you out! That’s why a slow incremental approach to including workouts in your daily routine can help you adopt this new lifestyle.
Clean up your eating! You cannot out-train a poor diet. Make the switch to more whole, natural foods, ditch the sugary snacks, drink 2l of water/day and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.
Train today to train tomorrow! My goal is to have you feel like you have worked-out, but ready to train the following day and so achieve your goals quicker.
Why Bourne Training
Suitable for Beginners
What can I expect from Personal Training?
Whether you’re new to exercise or you’ve been working out on your own for a long time, using a personal trainer can give you that extra nudge.
If you’re out of shape or haven’t worked out recently, an initial period of training designed to help you build a fitness base and avoid injury will be programmed. This is a good thing, because it will make all your subsequent workouts more effective.
Personal training sessions vary significantly depending on what you want to achieve and the type of workout. Generally, one personal training session tends to last forty-five minutes to one hour. It will start with a gentle warm-up, followed by the actual workout, with stretches to end the session. Remember, warming up and stretching is essential for injury prevention - it’s just as important as the main part of the workout!
I recommend 2 PT sessions per week plus one of my classes. If you’re only seeing me once a week, then you’ll need to train at least twice a week outside of our sessions to see the results you want and achieve the minimum of 150mins (NHS recommendation) of exercise per week.
Alternatively join my in-person or online classes, complete the workouts of your Personal Training Plan, or follow my video workouts in order to reach your goals.
