Here's what others have to say...
I started training with Gemma in March 2020 via zoom. Gemma is an inspirational and incredibly motivational coach. She offers diverse classes to suit your needs and her positive attitude always keeps you going. I can’t believe how quickly she has changed my level of fitness and body shape in 6 months. Couldn’t recommend her more highly.
I had my first baby in April 2017 and struggled with Diastasis Recti, which I knew very little about. After seeing several physios, I knew what sort of work I had to do to address it, but I was really at a loss to know who to turn to. My sister suggested I get in touch with Gemma, having read a recommendation about her. It was life-changing! I had zero confidence about my body and the shape of my stomach when I met Gemma. She gave me so much support and encouragement to build my strength up and feel like myself again. Gemma works me hard and I saw results quickly. It wasn’t just about how I looked, but also how I felt. I felt strong, had more energy and felt like a better mother for it - I had struggled to lift my baby, walk for long distances and wear slings. All of that changed after starting with Gemma. I’m now pregnant with my second baby and after my husband, Gemma was the first person I told. She has encouraged me to keep my strength up during my pregnancy which is something I hadn’t focused on first time around and I paid the price for that. I feel completely different as a result. I’m also going into the final stages of this pregnancy knowing that I have a plan of action to get my full strength back after the birth. Gemma genuinely transformed my post-natal experience and I just wish I had found her earlier. It would have saved me so much heart-ache and at times despair about my lack of strength and the way my stomach looked. She genuinely changed my life!
I have known Gemma for 3 years, she is wonderfully energetic, positive and hard working. When I started training with her she instantly understood exactly what I wanted to get out of my sessions. I have had a lot of neck problems over the years, stemming from an old fracture in my neck, and she has helped me to strengthen and enjoy getting back into shape, using accurate and well planned exercises to help my recovery. Having had children herself Gemma also understands about mothers and how difficult it can be to get your body back, I had 3 children in 4 years and my body is certainly not as it used to be... but after just a few weeks of training I felt stronger, more toned and more energised.
I generally get bored very easily training, but Gemma keeps the exercises varied and fun, however be under no illusion she will make you work hard! But the effects are well worth it.
I really enjoy every sessions with Gemma, she genuinely cares about your individual needs.
I started seeing Gemma to help strengthen my weak core and back after 2 big babies, and after just a few sessions I both felt and saw a real difference. After years of regular HIIT and cardio exercise, Gemma has re-taught me how to engage my body in the correct way and to exercise more effectively and safely. Her approach is tailored to my specific needs and is very results driven whilst being positive and encouraging. I highly recommend her classes.”
