How does 1:1 Online Coaching work?
You’ll be coached and supported from the comfort of your own home. There’s no need to join a gym (unless you want to!). I will work with you on an individual basis to improve your nutrition, fitness, and habits to help you lose weight, and live a happier and healthier life. The programme is tailored to your needs to make sure it fits in with your lifestyle, work, and family commitments. Contact can be via text/WhatsApp, email, and via video call/messages.
Do I need to be really technical to do Online Coaching?
No! If you can use email and Facebook, you will be absolutely fine! I utilise Google Drive and Google Sheets for my programs, as they are great ways for us to share information with each other. However, it is very simple to use once you get the hang of it! I aim to make it as simple as possible.
I’m really unfit and haven’t exercised for ages (if ever), will I be ok?
Absolutely! Many of my current clients had never done any exercise before – we all start somewhere! My 1:1 Online Coaching programme is fully tailored to YOU, so it takes into account your fitness level and experience level.
I have an injury, will I be ok?
This will depend on the nature of your injury. There are always ways to adapt exercises and many of my current clients find they can continue with their Online Coaching program despite having an injury. However, I strongly recommend speaking with a medical professional (your GP or a physiotherapist) before increasing the level of physical activity that you are currently doing.
I am overweight, will I be ok?
You will most likely be absolutely fine, and you’ll find that starting an Online Coaching program with me is a brilliant way to help you become a healthier weight and more body confident. You are not alone – the majority of the people who start working with me want to lose weight. If you are medically obese then you should always check with your GP before making changes to the level of physical activity that you are currently doing.
Do I need to buy any gym equipment?
For 1:1 coaching, you may find it useful to invest in some dumbbells, a kettlebell, and a resistance band. However, you won’t need to buy everything straight away! Your program can be tailored around what you have (even if that’s nothing!) so you can get started straight away. You can also pick gym equipment up, fairly cheaply, from eBay and Facebook marketplace.
I’ve never used weights before, will I be ok?
Yes! I specialise in weight training, and absolutely love showing people how to use weights to change their body shape. Lots of my ladies had never picked up a dumbbell before starting with us, and now they absolutely love lifting weights. They love how it makes them feel stronger and they love achieving new things. I’ll make sure you use safe, correct, and effective technique. You can send me videos of your technique and I will analyse them for you. I can also provide you with video demonstrations for all the exercises on your program.
Who do your online programs work for?
My online programs work for anyone who follows the advice I give and embraces the changes I ask them to make! I help people to make lifestyle changes, rather than quick fixes or fad diets, as I know that this is the best way to get results.
I’ve tried gyms, diets and workout plans before, but they didn’t work. Does online coaching work?
My clients feel better about themselves very quickly, and I empower people to make changes and live a healthier lifestyle. If you follow the advice I give you, and follow your personalised plan, you will lose weight, tone up, feel fitter, stronger and more body confident. I will support you every step of the way and keep you accountable, but it will be down to you to put the effort in.
Have a look at what some of my current members have to say on my Success Stories page.
How quickly can I expect to see results?
Honestly, this will depend on you. If you’re willing to commit 100% and make positive changes to your life with my help, then you will see changes from the word ‘go.’ I can guarantee that, from the first time we speak, you will feel great and ready to make some positive changes.
I want to get started straight away, how much is it?
I have a range of options available to suit different people. The best way to decide which option would suit you best is to complete the Online Coaching application form, and we will be able to decide together the option which would suit you and your specific needs the best.
