Welcome to Kelly McFie – Online Fitness & Nutrition Coaching!
I specialise in helping busy ladies to break free from yo-yo dieting, feel fitter, healthier, and more body confident with online fitness and nutrition coaching.
I started my business in 2014. I’m the Head Coach & Owner, Kelly McFie.
I first started working in the fitness industry in 2001, where I worked in health clubs and gyms all over Tameside, Manchester, and Cheshire.
In 2007, alongside my role in the fitness industry, I began working for the NHS Health Improvement Service, working with patients who wanted to change their health behaviours, be it losing weight, giving up smoking, or becoming more physically active.
I have helped hundreds of people, over the years, to achieve their goals of living a healthier lifestyle.
I am degree level qualified; I hold a First Class Honours Degree in BSc Exercise, Physical Activity & Health, as well as being a fully qualified Personal Trainer.
I have many qualifications in Weight Management, Fitness, and Nutrition, and in May 2021, I qualified as an MNU Certified Nutritionist. I achieved a Pass with Distinction.
After the birth of my son, in 2010, I began to struggle with an eating disorder, while losing my ‘baby weight’ and I was treated as an NHS Out Patient for six months while I had intensive CBT and compassion based therapy.
This is where my passion really comes from:
I wanted to create a place where ladies could come and exercise and have fun, and lose weight in a healthy and safe way.
A place with no judgement, no cliques, no bitching, and where your goals and dreams really count – a place where you’re not just a number in a class, or one person in a sea of faces!
This is how Fitness Works (that’s what my business was called when I started out) was first developed!
Firstly, as a mobile training service, with me driving all over Tameside and Cheshire in my Fiat Panda (affectionately known as ‘The Panda Bear!’), to train clients in their homes/gardens/garages!
Then, I offered training from a private gym in Stalybridge, before opening my first premises, Fitness Works Denton, in 2016.
In 2018, my clients and I moved to fabulous new premises, Fitness Works, in Ashton Under Lyne, where we stayed until the Coronavirus pandemic closed our doors in March 2020.
This led to me continuing to support my clients virtually, online, and it showed me a fabulous, new way of working, which worked especially well for busy ladies!
I have now culminated 20 years of experience, qualifications, knowledge, and client results, to launch my fabulous Online Coaching service, offering 1:1 and Group online fitness and nutrition coaching.
With all of my industry experience, qualifications, and personal experience, I truly believe that my online coaching programmes are perfect for helping busy ladies lose weight, tone up and get healthier, but in a healthy, fun, way that fits in with their lifestyle, work, and family commitments!
I am a huge believer in self compassion, self kindness, and unconditional permission to eat any food. I offer evidence-based nutrition guidance; no fad diets, no bs, and no ‘miracle’ supplements, cleanses or juices.
My clients see me as much more than a weight loss or fitness Coach, and often describe my programmes as a “life line.” I genuinely care about my clients and their goals, and I do everything I can to help my ladies get to where they want to be.
