Personal Training

Training designed specifically for you and your life, brought directly to your home for your convenience

During your initial consultation and fitness assessment we work out where you are with your current diet, fitness and strength and then formulate an action plan together so that we can meet your goals. This may be weight loss, fat loss, inch loss, strength gain, increasing fitness for health and general wellbeing, improving posture, improving fitness to walk, run, cycle, swim a specific distance. These are just examples, the goal is yours and together we formulate the tools to help you focus on what you need to do to achieve it.

We talk about the type of exercise you enjoy or think you might like and of course the exercise you detest. We look at the body and mind as a whole, working to achieve a strong core and using functional movements – sitting, standing, squatting, lunging, lifting, carrying, dragging, twisting, bending, getting up, getting down, pushing, pulling – mimicking everyday life activities alongside more traditional exercises.

I bring your attention to nutrition not calorie counting, dieting or starvation.

We look at lifestyle and stress too as this all has such an impact on health and fitness. Hard training definitely has it’s place but so does relaxation and rest.

We work on learning how to change one thing at a time so it easily becomes part of your everyday life, so that eating nutrient dense foods and drinking enough water (among other things) become second nature.

You will have an exercise programme that you complete at home using equipment you may have already or a selection of relatively inexpensive equipment such as dumbells and a stability ball for example. Your programme is regularly adjusted during our personal training sessions and then approximately every 8 weeks it is entirely updated to progress the exercises and of course to stop you getting bored or plateauing.

Scary as it sounds I do have expectations from you when you embark on your journey. I expect commitment, adherence and you putting in the time in between our sessions.


Initial Personal Training Consultation £60 – During this hour and a half we discuss current health, injuries, goals, diet. We discuss your expectations and my expectations. There are a few questionnaires (health and nutrition) to complete and a brief fitness assessment. You receive feedback from your questionnaires and your fitness assessment showing areas that need addressing and your areas of strength. The information from this initial consultation is used to formulate a goal driven fitness, lifestyle and nutrition plan specifically for you.


What my clients say...

“I have been seeing Jo for  well over 2 years and I can honestly say she has changed my life .
Her support,  advice and motivation has turned me from a run hating grandma to a 12km run loving super Nannie , I have never exercised in my life , now I can’t imagine my week without it . With her focused one to one support and attention  I have reduced the ” bad ” fat around my organs , increased my muscle mass  and have a metabolic age of a 35 year old , not bad for a 58 year old !
She supports me through my struggles , sets me challenges and gets me through my “loss of mojo” days . I consider her a friend and mentor and knowing her has truly enriched my life , and it’s fun !!! - Ann

"I have been training with Jo for over three years now. In my experience she offers so much more than a ‘normal’ personal trainer. Jo gets to know her clients very quickly, identifies their strengths and, more importantly, their areas of weakness. She is always looking for new challenges to keep me motivated and sends messages between sessions to ensure that I stay on track. When we are training Jo has an uncanny knack of knowing exactly when she can push me as she knows I still have more ‘in the tank’ and when it’s time to let me rest (it’s usually the former!). I hope to train with Jo for many years to come and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her" - Andy 

"I’ve been training with Jo for a while now, and usually see her every 5 weeks or so and she’s helped me change my lifestyle massively. Not only have I lost weight, built muscle and become fitter, but my attitude to exercise has changed; my knowledge of nutrition and food has increased and I feel so much better for it. Jo is always so flexible and she makes our sessions interesting and fun and always incorporates things I like doing. She pushes me to work hard and motivates me – but she’s also understanding when ‘life’ can sometimes get in the way, and helps me get back on track. She’s also been very supportive with health issues I’ve had and has adapted my training programmes and our sessions.
I always look forward to our sessions and feel brilliant after them – I really am so grateful to Jo for all of her ongoing support, motivation and the advice she gives me." - Katie 

"Working out with Jo on my fitness has been great . Jo has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of all aspects of my well being , not just my muscles ! She encourages me and believes in me and got me totally ready for skiing !
She will message me to keep me motivated between sessions , and knows exactly how I tick .
She offers advice on nutrition as well to help me meet my goals . Jo is a great personal trainer who goes above and beyond and I recommend her highly 🙂" - Vicky
