Not a stereotypical pt
Hey, I'm Kate. I like helping people feel healthier and happier using fitness, nutrition and lifestyle coaching.
I believe in finding balance. I love exercise and eating well BUT I also understand that other aspects of life can take priority - whether that's work, children, health conditions, and so on...
for better health
Fitness and nutrition can influence your physical, mental and social wellbeing.
I like to think that my approach influences all aspects of your wellbeing so that you feel better physically and mentally.
I'm building a community of people who want to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle but also want to have some fun along the way!
my core principles
I'm passionate about helping people. I want to help people smile and create a lifestyle that they love.
I bring energy and enthusiasm and I'd love you to do the same. I want you to feel confident to embrace change.
Being approachable and building relationships is so important to me. Fitness and food should bring people together.
A community where everyone is welcome and supported. Let's celebrate progress together - however big or small.
