Claire has been my Personal Trainer since February 2009 when I decided that I need to make some changes in my life regarding fitness. At that time I was doing little exercise beyond walking dogs and occasionally riding a horse, after experiencing a number of years of physical ailments making any exercise painful. The first goal Claire helped me to achieve was to get fit for one week riding (6-8 hours a day) in Mongolia. She devised a programme for me which worked on the relevant muscles for the trip and increased my cardiovascular fitness. Four months later, I had the experience of a lifetime riding a feral pony across the Steppes of Mongolia and made the more enjoyable as I was fit enough for it to be well within my physical capability. Since then I have been on a number of activity holidays, including trekking the Great Wall of China, Cycling from Vietnam to Cambodia and lastly climbing Mount Kilimanjaro which is 2/3rds the height of Everest. All of these trips have required a different type of fitness and Claire has catered for this, every time with a specific programme. Despite the fact that I have numerous physical problems, she has always managed to work around these, preventing injury and yet increasing my fitness. I would highly recommend her to anyone of any age who values their health and well-being.

Claire is a very motivated Personal Trainer with a huge wealth of knowledge, not only in fitness and diet but how to get the best results for each individual whatever your fitness level or health problems maybe and with insensible and realistic time frames. I can vouch for this as Claire has helped me to return to my former fitness after major spinal surgery 18 months ago.
I and my husband have had Claire PT us for a long time now and both of us enjoy our sessions as they are always varied and test you so you never get bored!!
We both also have regular sports massages which are great and in my case essential as I have a lot of muscular problems due to my spinal surgery so find them really helpful in giving some release.

Claire has been my Personal Trainer for a short while now. I have lost the use of my legs and Claire is helping to rehabilitate me so that I can strengthen my legs and arms so it will possible for me to manoeuvre myself into a wheelchair. Claire is always patient with me, I look forward to my sessions with her, even when I know she is going to put me through it.

Claire is the BEST Personal Trainer I have had. She keeps me motivated ( when I would otherwise prefer to lie on the sofa !) Claire tailors the training to my changing lifestyle needs ( jet lag overuse injuries Too many late nights ) and helps me achieve my personal fitness goals. I have long been a fan of Claire's palates classes. I have been lucky to have Claire keep me on the straight and narrow for the last 7 years and cannot recommend her highly enough.

I would like to thank Claire for Personal Training me over the last couple of years. Since my karate knees and arthritic left hip prevented me from jogging. She has kept my motivation up and my progress high whilst somehow managing to avoid repetition. In my line of work Master in Tang Su Do. Claire is the one fo the few who's opinions and direction I can trust.

Claire is a very motivating Personal Trainer. She is great value for money, as she spends each session working on your specific goals. You can not get away with not working hard! She makes each session fun and interesting as she has lots of different fitness techniques.
