Having done some ridiculous fad diets, I realised I needed something more fundamental and long term – so I sought Sarah out soon afterwards – and am so glad I did! Looking back on my first session I find it hard to believe how unfit I was compared to now, but Sarah’s weekly 1-2-1 personal training sessions and bootcamps were so varied, so challenging (in a good way!) and left me on such a high when they were over that it wasn’t long before the pounds were dropping off, and my clothes were hanging off me. Alongside this, I didn’t want to undo all my hard work (and burpees!) by eating junk, so gradually overhauled my diet too (again with Sarah’s nutritional advice) which when combined with the exercise gave me an overwhelming sense of wellbeing and healthiness. By my wedding day I had lost over 2.5 stone, dropped to a size 8/10 and could not have felt more confident in my dress – plus I really felt like I had earned all the compliments from guests on the day!
But actually the wedding was just the beginning of my journey. I was determined not to be one of many brides who start to pile the weight back on as soon as the last guest has left the morning after - I wanted it to be a lasting change. After the wedding, with Sarah’s unwavering encouragement and enthusiasm, me and my husband signed up to our first ever marathon in Paris – something I never thought I would do in a million years! Sarah helped us with a brilliant training plan, and we completed it in under 5 hours, without stopping once – in fact it was actually the most rewarding day of my life after our wedding day, and we have now signed up for London next year. I still see Sarah once a week for personal training, and go to as many bootcamps as I can (you could not ask for a nicer group of girls who attend) – and I really can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for me, I genuinely think she is the best trainer out there and I always tell my husband it’s the best money I have ever spent (and he agrees)! I feel (and look) like a totally different person to the one who huffed and puffed around Clapham Common 2 years ago – thank you so much Sarah!
Having been very sporty at school and university, I fell into the London cliché of drinking wine with friends after work, eating out a lot (mostly beige food!), and completely getting out of the habit of regular exercise – meaning the pounds started to creep on over the years, and my fitness levels became non-existent. Getting engaged in July 2012 was the kick I needed to get back in shape – like many would-be brides the thought of dozens of unflattering wedding photos posted across social media was all the inspiration I needed!
When I began group training with Sarah I was terrified of lycra and couldn't jog 500m comfortably. Sarah gave me encouragement at every step of the way. She knew when to push me but never made me feel like I couldn't succeed. After a couple of months training with Sarah I lost four inches from waist, five inches from my hips and 3 inches from my thighs. I also wear lycra religiously and ran 10K!! I owe so much to Sarah. An incredible trainer and person!
I met a great group of new friends and I felt really proud of where I had got to by my wedding day and far more confident in how I looked than I ever thought I would be. I'd recommend Sarah's classes to anyone.
Sarah was such a motivating trainer and she really helped me achieve results that I don't think would have been possible if I'd just been working out on my own. I found I really enjoyed our sessions, they were both fun and challenging and as a result I lost weight and really toned up and most importantly, I felt great on my wedding day!
Her occasional full week boot camp and nutrition plans give you that extra push to keep going as well and they are amazing value - I would never pay for a monthly gym membership now.
I only wish I'd discovered Sarah earlier. My initial thoughts of horror at a 6.30am boot camp quickly disappeared when I attended my first of Sarah's sessions. Each one is always different; that 1 hour passes before you know it. Sarah's enthusiasm and encouragement means that you even find yourself looking forward to the next session, with the added motivation that you really see results quickly (she helped me lose just over a stone through her boot camp classes) and training with other people makes it far more fun.
I absolutely LOVE training with Sarah. Each session is challenging, varied and hugely motivational, even in the dark cold mornings! I reached my target weight and I couldn't have felt better!
I started training with Sarah prior to getting married. Like most, I wanted to lose weight ASAP for my big day. Sarah pushed me harder than I ever could have on my own.
I loved our sessions so much that when I found out I was pregnant I wanted to keep training. Sarah adapted my sessions enabling me to train to around 36weeks. I can't recommend and thank her enough as it gave me so much more energy. I am sure it made the birth of my son Harry slightly more bearable.
I can't sing her praises high enough. I am now 4months post the birth of Harry and itching to get back to training. If your looking for fun workouts that actually achieve results, then Sarah is the best person for this!
