“I’ve not got that much to lose really; I’ll never get rid of this tummy because I’ve had two children; I eat healthily so it can’t be my diet; I spin 4-5 times a week and burn so many calories, it’s weird how I’m not losing weight.”
A year ahead of turning 40, I had the idea that when that milestone birthday arrived, I wanted to feel as good as I could. Just 4 months ahead of the big birthday I started working with Nancy in face to face personal training sessions and I still strongly held onto all of the ideas and beliefs above.
From that very first session and beyond, Nancy educated me about diet and exercise and that has been the single most important factor that has enabled me to completely change the way I look and feel. As well as the face to face sessions, her constant support in between kept me on track.
When the big birthday milestone arrived, I honestly felt the best I have in my entire adult life – slim, fit and very importantly, strong. I had lost a significant amount of body fat and my body shape had changed beyond belief. When I reflect on the 4 month journey, it really wasn’t that difficult – I still had fun, socialised, went out for dinner, drank alcohol, went on weekends away and to parties – and therefore the changes that I have made feel totally sustainable
I really thought I knew what to do and that the reason I wasn’t losing weight or changing shape were related to factors beyond my control. How wrong I was!
Thank you, Nancy, for the education, the belief and the constant support. I truly feel Fabulous at Forty!

My professional life is pretty unpredictable and stressful on most days, so regular exercise was something I really needed to do, but never seemed to find the time for in recent years. Nancy is the best possible way back into the discipline and the joy of working out. I got back into the discipline through her 7.00 am PT sessions and that is hard, but so much more fun with Nancy than anyone I know.
Her early morning ebullience is contagious and she customizes her sessions to your personal needs until you rediscover your ‘gym’ self and enjoy getting back into it all. Superb attention to detail, dietary advice that’s easy to follow and stick with, encouragement and just pure joie de vivre makes Nancy’s sessions not just effective and fun, but also uplifting and therapeutic. A dress size down, in much better shape, back problems sorted and back to self-motivated fitness efforts, she’s been a real revelation.
Her recipes are an extra bonus and they work. Even outside PT sessions Nancy keeps an eye out via MY FITNESS PAL and that’s exactly what you need, someone that knows your life is crazy but still manages to keep you on the straight and narrow and hey, you’ll enjoy the trip.
