Start TODAY to get the body you want for TOMORROW with LIVE FOR FITNESS

In my case I wanted to lose weight. I had been given a stern talking-to by my doctor and decided it was about time I took it seriously. I found Live for Fitness in my local area and went to meet Carol for an introductory chat. We discussed my goals and what I wanted to achieve and talked about how she could develop an exercise plan for my needs, and also some diet hints and tips to further help me reach my target. Carol’s suggestions (not to

I went to Carol because I suffered with SPD (also known as pelvic girdle pain) during pregnancy and was still feeling the effects a year later. I was desperate to exercising again as I used to be a keen jogger but had little idea of how to do that without hurting myself of triggering the SPD pain further. Carol was brilliant at devising a programme that I was able to do even with my limitations and focused on strengthening my core to support my

When I first met Carol, I told her how keen I was to get help to reshape the way I looked at exercise and at food – in a bid to get me away from an endless stream of fad diets. Whilst I lost weight quickly, they were unsustainable and also incredibly unhealthy. I knew that I needed a radical change in my eating and fitness habits if I was to lose the weight I needed to before having my baby. Carol was just fantastic. She worked me hard – but kept it fun!

I decided to come and see Carol as I had always struggled with my weight and was fed up with how much it impacted my confidence. Carol had been recommended to me by my sister so I decided to take the plunge. She made me feel at ease immediately and made the process much less frightening. After a few weeks she felt more like a friend that a personal trainer and I would actually look forward to the sessions.

After turning 40 in 2012, I was very aware of the saying ‘Hit 40 and get fit or get fat!’ I was doing the latter. I had joined a gym in an attempt to get fit and maybe unsurprisingly I stopped going after about 6 sessions. I need to be fit for my job, working as a stunt performer on some very high profile films, such as ‘Captain America’, War Horse, and have doubled for Matt Damon on films like ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ and ‘Greenzone’.


When my wedding was fast approaching and I went for that dress fitting, shock! horror! it couldn’t be done up. I knew I had to take action. Carol was my ‘knightette’ in shining armour. It wasn’t easy for her as I am a type 1 diabetic, but she was brilliant helping me with menu plans and the exercise. I have never felt better, she’s a brilliant motivator making the whole experience fun and interesting, whilst always making sure I was looked after.
