I love my job and am extremely passionate about my clients. I am good at what I do and guarantee you will be looked after and get the results you want in a way that works best for you. I bring to thetable a huge enthusiasm for exercise to help my clients in achieving their goals and provide motivation and encouragement to clients to adhere to exercise as part of a life change. I find that engaging in a bit of banter makes the exercise sessions a lot more tolerable, some would even say fun!
You will then have a one to one consultation with a member of our specialised Medical Team who will discuss privately with you, your eating habits and lifestyle. They will weigh you, take your bloodpressure, and explain the aims of the Bodyline Weight Management Programme. Then if appropriate, they will discuss how much weight you should be aiming to lose to bring your BMI Level back into the parameters of a healthy weight.
In todays society we have lost the importance that food has on good health and many people are now suffering from health conditions that could be made better by simple lifestyle changes. People alsooften use food as a way to feed their emotions rather than to fuel their body and make them healthy. Nutrition is always a hot topic in the media and there are many conflicting messages around, no wonder people are often confused what they should be eating. NUTRITION SOS is here to help you!

My interest and passion for sport has also influenced my studies. I decided that a career in sport and health would be extremely fulfilling and a very worth while subject to study at University. Afterhaving successfully completed my university studies, and various other specialised courses in areas such as sports massage, I decided a career as an independant personal trainer was the choice for me, and started GMG Personal Training.
