Ideally sessions will take place in your home but can take place in an agreed safe space e.g. coffee shop, with exception to testing sessions (as blood samples will be taken). However, some sessions could even take place in the supermarket!
Living in Stevenage, I am happy to travel in and around Hertfordshire. Let me know where you are and I’m sure we can arrange something even if we meet in the middle!
I am a qualified Level 3 REPs Personal trainer achieving this qualification at the university of Bedfordshire as part of my Bachelor of Science Honors degree in Sports Science and Exercise Practice.

I hold a diploma in nutrition and am trained in the Xpert Health programme in prevention of diabetes and pre-diabetes. As part of my degree I studied some nutrition and I continue to better my understanding and knowledge in this ever growing subject area. Having helped myself and others battle issues around weight, illness and nutrition.
Firstly, I will never conduct any testing without your full consent. Any testing is carried out in a safe environment with anyone there that you wish. Blood testing is no more than a finger prick blood sample with a possibility of up to 3 pricks in the finger/s (I have been trained not only at university but also two previous jobs as to how to take finger prick blood samples safely and accurately).
Testing can include:
BMI (Body Mass Index)
BMR (Basel Metabolic Rate)
Body Fat Percentage
Body Muscle Percentage
Any body circumference measurements
If there are any more tests you wish to have then we can arrange for this at a GP Surgery or to be sent off privately.
