“Mary delivers a great workout with a happy attitude, she is reliable and committed and I thoroughly recommend her.”

“A year of one-on-one fitness and strength training with Mary has positively transformed my attitude towards staying in shape. It has made me believe I can maintain fitness through my own workouts. Mary is a tough but understanding coach and I thoroughly recommend her to anyone who feels they need help to get into shape. After one session, you won’t know why you waited so long!”

“When I started training with Mary I had just woken up to being the big 50 and, despite having had a good history of physical activity, the realisation that I had slipped into some pretty bad habits. A busy professional and active family life getting in the way of being healthy, leaving an obese and unfit version of myself I was not happy with. At age 20 or 30 it would have been simple: go to the gym, go running, get fit, no problem. At 50 this was just not working, rather leading to repeated failures and constant injuries.

Mary has designed a program for me, fitting in 2 sessions per week early mornings around our busy schedules. The work outs are continuously varied, tough maybe, but never boring. She has also developed a program to be followed between sesssions and provided dietary advice leading to some serious weight loss. Mary is cheerful, enthusiastic, and highly highly motivated. She cares about her clients, is non-judgemental and has a terrific sense of humour (pork pies are apparently not an everyday food!). All this backed up with some serious knowledge and experience. I actually look forward to her bouncing up at 6am and cheerfully announcing the days planned torture.

Without doubt the best money I have spent this year. I have lost a lot of weight, am in better shape than I have been in years, and enjoying an injury free active life again.”

“Over the 8 weeks that I trained with her this summer, Mary not only helped me to get fitter and stronger, but also boosted my confidence, so now I feel ready to continue my fitness journey on my own. The varied training regime meant that I never got bored, and even though sometimes I felt like quitting and giving up, Mary was so encouraging and confident in my ability that I achieved things that I never thought I would.

I cannot recommend Mary enough – she took me from complete beginner with zero confidence to someone who goes to the gym and (dare I say it) almost enjoys running! A massive transformation in 8 weeks. I only wish I could have worked with her for longer.”
