My qualifications

What my Clients say:

"Katie has been my personal trainer for nearly two years now and I can honestly say I'm still loving it as much as I did at the start. I've never enjoyed the gym before meeting Katie as I found it very repetitive but with Katie we are always doing different workouts still so I'm never bored and I never know what we are doing each session. Katie is very good at pushing you to achieve your goals and never letting you quit when you feel that you can't give any more!"

Kieran Howells

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My mission is to enable people to achieve their maximum potential and to become their best selves by building strong physiques, adopting science-based approaches to nutrition and by provoking powerful mind-sets.

Using experiences from the Military, Competitive sports and Bodybuilding over eight years I’ve built a wealth of experience and used that to design a unique and ever-evolving coaching service. I won't bore you with my qualifications because I believe actions speak louder than words, I let results do the talking. This is not just training this is your next level.

By having a background in several different sports, I find it easier to create sessions for my clients that are not only enjoyable, but also specific and results focused.

I am a believer that mind and body are one, and by having my holistic approach to training I am able to break down mental barriers and limiting beliefs. My clients tend to develop long lasting habits that benefit their health.

Being vegan since 2017 I have also gained great amounts of knowledge about healthy eating and dieting.

Rob Pleming

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Rob has a unique and innovative approach to coaching, incorporating all aspects of the body and mind to help all his clients achieve the best and often far more than they ever expect. This approach combines NLP techniques (Neuro Linguistic Programming) to ensure the mind-set, and way of thinking, is conducive to getting the desired results with the NKT aches and pains approach, which focuses on how the whole body operates rather than just focusing on a specific ache/pain.  Rob practices Precision Nutrition, using this to help his clients make changes to their diet and improve their body composition, health and lifestyle.

  • REPS

What my Clients say:

"This man will change your life! Our sessions are always changing so I’m always learning new skills and never bored.  I work harder than I thought possible and am encouraged, cheered on and reminded of how much progress I’m making. Although I work hard we laugh a lot too. He has also helped and encouraged me to change my diet.  I feel healthy, strong, fit and happy.  I have more energy than colleagues half my age. I’m 5 stone lighter and a dress size 10. I’m out of pain, the limp has gone and I’m planning a 100k sponsored walk. Thanks Rob for an amazing 9 months."
