I've always loved sport and fitness, but when I put on three stone at university (pizza, sitting and major boredom), I'd forgotten about all of that! It crept up on me until, one day, I realised.
I wanted to do something about it - I hadn't ridden a bike in ten years, due to a childhood accident, but I thought this would be a good place to start.

I use my journey and my expertise to help you become your best possible self. Through my Curves, Glow and Strength system, I help you develop the power, energy and wellness that you are craving, to be able to live your life to the fullest and to fulfill your purpose.
I'm a bit different to most common perceptions about personal trainers - I'm not a bodybuilder, I won't tell you to eat egg whites for breakfast and I'm no drill sergeant! Instead, we'll work together to create an effective and exciting training programme and balance your eating habits with your lifestyle, to create life long, sustainable changes.
"'Fitness made fun, the sessions are full of laughter and encouragement, which makes the pain that bit more bearable' 'I'm really enjoying the sessions - I like how Amy varies the focus each week and that she is slowly upping the intensity.

"'You've literally changed my life! I always used to give into cravings and kind thought I'd go right back to how I was once we finished, but I'm eating exactly how I'm supposed to, it's second nature now! Didn't have anything sweet at all yesterday! Amy's She's helped me not just lose weight but eat more healthily and get into some great habits, almost without realising! I feel much more confident in my body and my lifestyle and it's all thanks to Amy.'"
