Hello!

Welcome to Every Step Fitness – the home of friendly, fitness fun!

My name is Nancy and I’m an ex-university lecturer and researcher with over 6 years experience in the fitness industry. I have a level 3 diploma in Personal Training, and offer online and 1 – 1 and 1-2 face-to-face training from Body Fusion. Sessions are client-focused and tailored precisely to each client’s needs. I use up to date research on sports science and nutrition to offer clients the best possible chance of success. Sessions are fun, friendly and supportive. It’s not just about ‘beasting you’ – I offer full support between sessions on both exercise and healthy eating for the whole package. My clients range from 18 – 80, men and women, post and ante natal, post surgery/injury rehab, weight loss, fitness and just general health improvement. I’ve been there myself and have been on my own fitness journey (see below) so I understand the challenges first hand. As well as PT I teach group exercise classes in local gyms across Surrey – teaching spin, pump, attack, bodystep,  sh’bam (dance), aqua etc.

This site has my articles, recipes and tips, as well as info about ways I can help you get fit, and have fun doing it!

If you’d like to know more about my own journey then do have a read of my story and if you want to get in touch then do drop me a line!

Have a fab day

Nancy 🙂

I’ve always been quite lucky in that I am tall and have never really had any major issues with my weight, and so I had a very laisse-fair attitude to working out ie. I didn’t. However, the time eventually came when I started noticing things weren’t as toned as they used to be and I also started to think more about my general health and fitness which weren’t great. I knew I had to do something about it, and booked myself in to Nancy’s Body Step class at my local gym … I’ve never looked back. Nancy was so welcoming and totally put me at ease. I don’t feel like I’m brilliantly co-ordinated, but it didn’t matter, the class was so much fun and I left feeling energised and happy. I was hooked and now attend her Body Step, Body Pump, Body Attack & Spin classes. The fact that I have gone from zero to 3-4 classes a week is almost entirely down to Nancy and her ability to make the classes so much fun.

However I soon realised that apart from attending classes I also needed to make sure I was fuelling my body in the right way to get the benefits of the workouts I was doing.  I also knew I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to help me other than Nancy. She started me on a nutritional programme, sending me recipes and tips to help me get started, and also set me simple challenges to do at home on top of the classes I already attended. I also had 1:1 PT sessions when I could, to get a more tailored workout for the results I was looking for. Nancy is always on hand to answer any questions or give advice and is honestly one of the nicest, kindest (and most patient) people I know, I can’t recommend her highly enough.

If you are looking to lose weight or improve your fitness (or both), get amazing support while you are doing it and, more importantly, have fun while you’re doing it then Nancy is your girl! She really is with you “Every Step”

Nancy, I’m having so much fun working with you, and I’m looking forward to continuing my fitness journey with you. Thank you for everything, I feel happier, healthier and fitter that I have in a long long time.

“If you are looking to lose weight or improve your fitness (or both), get amazing support while you are doing it and, more importantly, have fun while you’re doing it then Nancy is your girl! She really is with you “Every Step” “

I stupidly bought a wedding dress that didn’t quite do up with the plan to lose weight, I tried on my own for about 4 months of exercise and ‘healthy’ eating (aka massive portions of low calorie food). I was so deflated when all of my efforts weren’t working and took the plunge to find a personal trainer. I had previously been to a couple of classes that Nancy had taken and thought I’d get in touch. I just needed something to help me start shifting the weight and Nancy was that something.

I was very nervous before my first class with her, petrified of doing the photos and felt very unfit. I didn’t need to feel nervous at all, Nancy immediately put me at ease. She is lovely, so positive and friendly, despite me thinking I was going to collapse during my first session with her, I really enjoyed it.

Motivation wasn’t my problem at all, I had oodles of that with a wedding looming and a dress that didn’t yet fit but direction was what I needed. Nancy was able to guide me with nutrition and exercise advise and the cms dropped off so quickly. I can’t believe how I had struggled so much for months on my own and by the time we did our first set of measurements there had been massive changes. Why did I not do this earlier.

It wasn’t big changes, I didn’t spend any longer in the gym that I previously had been, the difference was what I did when I was there. Nutrition was a huge factor, I had already changed what I had been eating to have ‘healthy’ meals however I didn’t understand calories particularly well (despite being a hospital doctor). My Fitness Pal was so helpful and very easy to use. It just became 2nd nature to log anything when I ate it. Even if I’d had a bad day I would still log it. Nancy never judged any of the choices I made but she would give helpful hints as to how to stay on the right path and with the results I was seeing and feeling it was pretty easy to stay on track. I felt better than I had in years. I knew Nancy was always at the end of a message if I needed help or I was struggling and I knew that her beady eyes would be checking up on My Fitness Pal so it would keep me going.

The one-on-one PT sessions were always very varied and fun and we had a good chance to catch up on life but also nutrition and gym sessions I’d do outside of the PT sessions.

I had a number of obstacles over the 8 months I spent with Nancy, a change in job meant a huge change in routine and not being able to go to the gym before work, I had a 2 exams which meant all of my free time was spent revising and when people suggest ‘fueling the brain’ I would have to make very sensible choices.

I managed to lose and incredible amount of cms and fitted into the dress! I felt amazing on my wedding day and that is thanks to Nancy.

I plan on using the techniques she has taught me to keep me on track and maybe even losing a few more cms.
