Caroline Shotton

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can i help you improve your health?

Finding the right PT can be genuinely life-changing. The transformative effect I experienced on my own journey (losing 14kg in four months, having the energy levels of a 20 year old, and completing a Tough Mudder) gave me the confidence to resign from a stressful job, retrain as a PT, and learn to ride a motorbike. (Sounds like a mid-life crisis to me Caroline!) With the evangelical zeal of the truly converted, I am here to help you experience your own life-changing transformation, and to inspire you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

So don’t be shy, make the call that could change your future and ring me on 07397 997436 to arrange a free consultation and 30 minute taster session.
