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 first met Nancy at group classes in my local gym, from the moment I arrived Nancy knew I was a newbie to the class and came and introduced herself. From that moment she made me feel at ease and relaxed around her, whilst also checking if I needed to let her know about any problems I had. I have always suffered from back pain and Nancy listened and didn’t push me to hurt myself and gave genuine different options throughout the class for myself and others who had also told her about problems. No one was called out or pushed beyond their limits (don’t worry though she knows when you aren’t working hard enough for yourself and will encourage in the right ways). After going to lots of Nancy’s classes, I felt super relaxed and not judged at all so wanted to approach her about personal training options. As someone who has tried all the fad diets out there and had many a PT (never worked for me) I had a long conversation with Nancy. Nancy listened to me, what I like to eat, what I don’t like to eat, but also and most importantly what I wanted. Nancy set me a wonderful plan but also explained to me what was needed without always removing my chocolate and crispy duck pancakes! For once I felt I could literally have my cake and eat it too, just in moderation right? My one to one sessions with Nancy with constant online support from her have been nothing short of a miracle, even if I am the most awful person at logging my calories! Nancy never ever judged me or shouted or got angry, she simply listened to what was happening outside of my “gym life” and helped me to pull my gym/eating well life and personal / work life together. As someone who has always worked away from home, I needed constant support of calories, hotel room workouts and most importantly understanding what I was doing it all for. Support through a bad back, a foot injury and a breakup, Nancy is there to tailor everything to you and just support. Never ever any telling off, just listening and working out how to get through it. I can’t recommend Nancy highly enough to anyone who is looking to making that step towards a healthier lifestyle and to reach their goals because she will truly partner with you with NO judgement and whole lot of fun along the way! Who doesn’t want to laugh whilst losing weight and getting fit? That is what you get with Nancy.

I met Nancy through my husband :o)

We are both members of Nuffield in Leatherhead and he had started going to her spin classes there and absolutely loved them – loved her enthusiasm and energy – and persuaded me to go even though I really don’t enjoy spinning!  He was so right – from the minute I met Nancy I loved her and she made me feel so welcome – her enthusiasm is infectious!

And it was my husband who had seen the transformations and testimonials that Nancy was positing on her social media and suggested I take a look.  He knew that I was just a bit fed up with my weight – I wasn’t huge, but at 47 I was the heaviest I’d ever been and whilst I didn’t look overweight it was bothering me that even though I thought I ate relatively healthily and exercised regularly I just couldn’t shift the weight.  I joined up with Nancy for 3 months on her online course and had a couple of PT sessions with her to check in face to face and mix up the training a little, have a chat!!

Nancy’s approach is very simple and that was exactly what I needed.  I have a very busy job, and sometimes feel pulled in many directions and I couldn’t cope with a plan that was too fussy or complicated.  I hate logging my calories – I find it time consuming and boring – but as Nancy says, you can’t out train a bad diet and that’s where my focus needed to be.  That and just making sure that I was relatively active.  My problem has always been lack of consistency and Nancy’s approach just gave me the right amount of focus that I needed.  The most important thing for me I think was the focus on sticking to 1600 calories a day – logging the food made me think twice about the few squares of chocolate at the end of the day or the couple of biscuits here and there and look at more healthy options and meal choices.  And being accountable to Nancy and knowing that I had her support and advice whenever I needed it kept me focused.   She is a very good cheerleader – always positive – even when you think you’ve had a bad day she will always look on the bright side and make you feel good about yourself.

I went on holiday and lost weight;  I had weeks where I didn’t exercise as much as I should and lost weight – because Nancy kept my focus on the calories in.  She doesn’t stress about macros, or types of calories, she just keeps it simple and by doing that you come round to the healthier choices in your own time that fit your lifestyle because you see that it works because of the results that you get with Nancy’s support.  With her help I lost 9.9kg of fat in 3 months.  And I feel so much healthier and happier in myself.  The loss in inches and weight was great but what has also been awesome is that I have maintained that myself since finishing the 3 months with Nancy.   She continues to check in on me, still supports me, and whilst I haven’t counted the calories as much as I should have done, I know now how best to eat for myself and I haven’t put the weight back on.

6 months later, and now in lockdown, I’m going back to having the online support because now more than ever I need the focus and support from Nancy.  I’m working at home full time now and in these difficult times I need some accountability again.  I’d like to focus on toning up a bit better and getting my strength up now that I’ve lost the weight so I’m back on the online course with Nancy and looking forward to some more amazing results in 3 months’ time :o)
