The Strength & Stretch Shed

Hello! I'm a personal trainer based near Harome in North Yorkshire, providing 1:1 and small group training plus fitness classes.

We can work together face-to-face in my custom-built 'Strength & Stretch Shed', or we can train virtually via Zoom – I even have international clients!


I've been a Personal Trainer for over five years and I'm passionate about keeping the body strong and stretched! No matter what your age or ability, there are progressions, modifications and adaptations that can help.

  • Pilates – I'm continually expanding my knowledge by training and qualifications so I can help more people with specific injuries and pain to get on the road to recovery

  • Weight Lifting – I hold a British Weight Lifting (BWL) qualification

  • Pre & Post Natal – I have helped several ladies to continue training up until a week before birth and return six weeks after

  • Exercise Referral – I can work with people and prescribe a programme safely and effectively for those with specific medical conditions

  • Over 65 – understanding the physiological changes that the body goes through as we age and how to deliver safe exercise

  • Children's Fitness and Pilates – I have run children's classes and taught in schools

  • Sports Nutrition – I can advise on food choices, calorie intake and habitual changes (note, I am not a dietician so cannot prescribe food plans but we can discuss options and ways to change)

  • Exercise to Music, Padwork, Kettlebells, Spinning

Personal Training

Personal Training is all about YOU! What YOU would like to achieve, what YOU would like to work on, designed to suit and benefit YOU!

I will tailor a programme for you, based on your aims and ability, taking into account your lifestyle.

We'll look at your strengths and weaknesses, consider any aches, pains or postural issues and use all that information to help you to progress.

Together we will help you to create and lead a happy, healthy and sustainable lifestyle!
