My sister and I initially met Nancy through group classes at the gym. Nancy quickly became our go-to instructor; her positivity and energy made exercise feel like fun and Nancy’s classes made it easy to stick to an exercise routine (God forbid if Alice or I missed a Monday night body pump!). At the time we had both stepped up our exercise routines but wanted to focus more on fat loss and ensuring that our technique was correct. Neither of us had worked with a PT before and Nancy was the natural choice!
Nancy brought all of that positivity and energy (and more!) into our PT sessions from the get go. The sessions were very varied, well planned and challenging whilst being fun at the same time. Nancy tailored the sessions to ensure we were both working towards our individual goals and at our fitness levels and provided workout plans and recipes to keep us on track in between sessions. She would regularly check in with us to see how we we’re getting on – Something I massively appreciated as it felt I had someone to be accountable to!
Nancy helped shift my mindset around my food intake. Before working with Nancy I think I naively assumed I could get away with eating whatever I liked as long as I was exercising regularly. I weighed myself occasionally, but had never really considered other factors, such as body fat %. Nancy’s no nonsense and simple approach helped me realise that you cannot out-exercise a bad diet. I now make healthier choices with my food and keep an eye on my body fat, visceral fat and other factors instead of only relying on the number on the scales.
If you’re still a bit unsure about investing in a PT, then I would say go for it – You won’t regret it. Just make sure the PT is Nancy! Her enthusiasm and passion for fitness will rub off on you within minutes of meeting her and I guarantee you will look forward to your sessions with her (Even if she does make you do some really hard stuff!)
Thank you, Nancy, for all of your energy, passion and smiles over the years. You will always be our number one instructor and PT!
