Nutrition

What you eat and drink plays a huge part in how you look and how you feel. I believe that food should be enjoyable and fit your lifestyle while making you feel energised, happy and healthy.

But I also know that it can be hard to plan healthy meals and stick to eating them when things like holidays, kids, travel, parties, work and/or dietary restrictions get in the way.

My next-level nutrition support programme is designed to help you with that.

Any eating plans or nutrition advice I give is personalised to you and built around the foods that you enjoy in the quantities needed to reach your goals.

I don't believe in overly restrictive diets or 'quick fixes' but in teaching a flexible, mindful approach to eating that you can enjoy and sustain for life.

Here's what my personal training clients have said about me (these are all genuine reviews from clients in the Stoke-On-Trent area)

After previously working with Katie a few years ago, I reached out to her when I saw her offering for online coaching. This is perfect for someone like me, so I can just go off and do the workouts - and the workouts are definitely a challenge!

Katie has been really communicative - even though we can't meet in person, we have regular check ins and I have felt really supported. I'm also getting nutritional support to achieve my goals, which as I'm vegan is definitely a challenge, but again I'm getting lots of support. Plus, the recipes are delicious!

I have worked out for years at the gym, never really taken it seriously as just stayed in shape but pretty much ate what I wanted too. I got in touch with Katie as I had heard about her at the gym and noticed she did nutrition plans. I wanted to start training seriously with more intensity and eating the right foods to obtain my body composition goals.

I chose Katie because she actually looks how I believe a personal trainer should, which means she lives the full on fitness and healthy nutrition lifestyle and I know she’s experienced the type of body changes I wish to experience myself.

Katie is very friendly, gives great advice wether it’s the most basic principles of training and nutrition or the even the more complex and advanced advice for more experienced trainers like myself.

Her bodyweight home workouts are prefect for me during lockdown as I have no equipment, they are very challenging but at the same time tailored to my level of fitness after various detailed discussions with Katie.

She checks In nearly everyday with me and is always available for any questions or to offer help and support. She is innovative with her workouts and having also obtained nutrition advice and a plan from Katie she also knows how to create some very tasty and healthy dishes to supplement the training plan.

I would recommend anyone at any point of their fitness journey to recruit Katie’s services. As long as you're willing to put the work in and follow her advice then you will get the results you want and fast.

We first signed up to Katie to start the new year off with a different out look on food and exercise due to my up coming wedding... with Boris’ announcement of the closure of gyms we were worried this may get in the way of our aim to loose weight for the special day.

Katie was quick to get in touch to reassure that she would be willing to support us virtually... she was able to tailor our plans according to our needs and has a wide knowledge of nutrition and was able to advise us with a daily calorie and protein target.

Along side this we have weekly virtual PT sessions. As neither of us had ever been into exercise previously we were rather apprehensive as to what we would have in store... considering we have never met in person the support we have received is next level.

Katie has always been available for advice and constantly encouraged us to achieve our goals... after three months we have both lost over a stone and have a new outlook on food and exercise we are very pleased with the results we have achieved. We highly recommend signing up with Katie as a personal trainer and look forward to continuing to see results!

Gaining weight has always been my struggle, I’ve managed it before but always felt terrible doing it and dropped it off again. After the layoff for Lockdown 1 I decided that if I was going to do it properly I needed help and I knew I was going to ask Katie to help me as I’d seen her working in the gym both alone and training others and her website articles on training and nutrition seemed perfect.

After a good chat and a few emails re nutrition Katie had the information she needed for my plan, when it came through I was delighted, it wasn’t a big list for me to try and decipher but seven structured days with different meals to meet my calorie and protein intake requirements but still with the option to swap equivalent meals around.

Nutrition was my main weakness but I decided to shake up my training to make the most of Katie’s knowledge. I’m not going to lie some of the training has pushed me out of my comfort zone, exercises and sets I’ve never entertained before but wow have I come to love it! 12 weeks in with chats and tweeks from Katie I’ve not only added a stone but I feel great and have loved every minute of it (apart from Wednesday leg session...)

We’ve changed up my training and adjusted my calories recently and my weight has sat perfectly where I want it. I know sometimes we can all feel that we know what we’re doing but getting in touch with Katie has been a fantastic decision and with her help I'm looking forward to making even more improvements going forward.

After many, many weeks of deliberating whether or not to seek the help of a professional trainer I finally took the plunge and contacted Katie and I am so very glad that I did!

Despite my initial apprehension and lack of confidence, Katie’s approach made me feel comfortable and relaxed from the very first contact. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, accessible, enthusiastic, supportive and patient at all times.

I have now been training for just over 2 months with 2 sessions a week and I have enjoyed every single one. Katie plans individual and varied programmes which are incrementally challenging. I appreciate the time that she takes to demonstrate each movement whilst also explaining its benefits. She continuously assesses and appraises my technique with suggestions of how to adapt where appropriate.

Along with the strength training sessions, I have also benefited from Katie’s nutrition support plan which has helped me to think carefully about the type and quantity of food that I eat in order to reach my goals. The individual nutrition plan has never felt restrictive in the slightest and I have enjoyed a varied and satisfying menu over the past several weeks. Katie also continues to offer tips and suggestions on a regular basis and she is always happy to respond to any queries as they crop up.

I readily acknowledge that patience has never been a particular strength of mine but with Katie’s support and encouragement I am already seeing the benefits as I work steadily towards achieving my targets. I am feeling stronger, more energetic and more confident all the time and I was delighted to discover that my jeans are already feeling too big!

I love the flexibility that Katie’s approach offers including sessions face to face outside, gym based, one to one online and also a personalised plan that I can work on independently from home with a check in every few weeks to ensure that I am still on track.

I cannot recommend Katie highly enough!

I have loved having Katie as my personal trainer over the past month. No matter what day of the week or what time, she’s always a text away whenever I need her. She always checks up on me to see how I am getting on, if I’m enjoying the workouts and if there’s anything she can do to help me further.

It’s obvious that she really wants me to succeed and always motivates me whenever I make small improvements on weights. I have made really good progress with the help from Katie and would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to reach their fitness goals.

I’ve been with Katie for around 4 month now for online coaching and I can honestly say both my training programmes and nutrition plans have been spot on with what I wanted. She has helped me when I have struggled mentally to get myself into training and keep track of my calories.

Her programmes are challenging in a good way and her nutrition is ideal for someone who doesn’t like boring bland food and instead helped me to focus on calorie intake. She is extremely knowledgeable and I couldn’t ask for a better coach.

Thank you so much Katie!

I never would have thought that going to the gym would be the highlight of my week but that's now I feel about my PT sessions with Katie.

When I started my goal was to lose weight and Katie provided me with a nutrition plan and her own recipe book full of delicious recipes that helped me to achieve my goal.

It was intimidating walking into the gym for the first time but Katie instantly put me at ease and we had a chat where she asked me what goals I wanted to achieve so that she could tailor a plan to meet my needs.

I've been training with Katie for around 9 months now and she always pushes me to achieve my best. As a result I have achieved things that I never thought were possible. Like a full press up on my toes! She is always just a message away if I ever need any advice and regularly asks for feedback on our sessions in case there is something that I want to change.

Even during lockdown Katie managed to provide me with online sessions that continued to push me and work me hard - Something that I wasn't sure would be possible out of a gym setting.

I can't wait to see what progress I can make in the next year with Katie's knowledge and encouragement.

Hi, I'm Katie,

I'm a firm believer that if you want to make changes in your life, then only you can make them happen (but a great personal trainer can certainly help you on your way)!

In the summer of 2012 I decided I needed to make changes in my life, I had been steadily gaining weight through my early twenties both from eating too much of the wrong kind of foods and having a desk bound job.

I decided to start attending the gym and before long was spending hours every week jogging, cycling and using every piece of cardio equipment the gym had to offer. After several months of this I was losing motivation, as I had only lost a small amount of weight and didn't feel as fit, toned and energised as I’d hoped to be, given the time and effort I was putting in.

I then decided to hire my own personal trainer and this turned out to be the best thing I have ever done, I only wished I'd done it sooner! My trainer taught me so much about exercise and nutrition and helped me understand that I didn’t need to be spending hours each week on the cardio machines and that exercise should be fun, enjoyable and rewarding with visible results!

My personal trainer not only helped me transform my body shape but also inspired me to take a new career path and qualify myself as a personal trainer, so I might help others realise their goals and share my knowledge and experience.

Helping people to enjoy exercise and find training styles that are effective and achieve results for them has become my passion.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to be able to help you soon.

Katie x
