Abbey’s Before and After Transformation

Abbey Kent – Student

Before I met Charlie I was the biggest and unhappiest I had ever been. I had no motivation or drive to do anything, the number on the scales was going up and up and my clothes were getting tighter. Then one day I decided that enough was enough. I finally plucked up the courage to email her – I really wish I had done it sooner! Charlie is the most amazing girl I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, from day 1 she was just a complete joy to be around, she knew what she wanted to do with me but also knew what my personal end goals were. She took the time to explain that being healthy isn’t just about exercise, it’s more about the right nutrition too. I can hand on heart say that if you are debating whether to train with Charlie, debate no more. She gave me back so much confidence and happiness and I now love my body!

Working with Charlie has helped ten fold with my training and  also broadening my knowledge of foods and nutrition for optimising performance!
Not only does she break down the exact amounts of macronutrients you need but she went above and beyond to give me dozens of great recipes and food choices to maximise the ease of the plan, constantly available to answer any questions when I needed.
She knows how to make healthy food taste great and is clear to see through her passion for health and nutrition! My body weight goals have been achieved and my performance followed suit! If you want to improve performance, health and achieve your body goals I would hole heartedly recommend Charlie!

Julie Richards – Mum of 3 and Spinning Instructor

It was December, time to party hard and celebrate. It’s Christmas!’ I’d say to myself as I rammed another Terry’s chocolate orange in.

Thank God I found Charlie at the start of January. Charlie took my measurements, took my photos, helped me sort out my macros and explained about nutrition in simple terms. She was extremely patient and understanding and made sure I left feeling confident and ready to get started.

Over the 3 months Charlie regularly checked in with me asking how I was doing or if I had any questions and gave me delicious recipes and delicious healthy meal ideas. She made me realise that I didn’t have to starve myself to lose weight. Her knowledge in nutrition is second to none and with her help and guidance I smashed my goals.

Charlie has got me on track for the rest of my life and to her I am extremely grateful.

If you need help in anything to do with fitness and nutrition Charlie is without a doubt your girl!

Katy Austin-Walters – Preparing for her Wedding Day

I signed up for a 12 week programme with Charlie as I wanted to get in shape for my upcoming wedding. I have also always been curious as to what I could achieve with a professional diet and exercise plan and this seemed like the perfect time to find out. I started off at 8 stone 12 and my goal was to get down to around 8 stone 4 as well as to tone up and generally increase my energy levels.
Charlie is a bundle of energy and gorgeousness. She is clearly an expert in her field and looks incredible herself which gives you something to aspire to. She is a fountain of knowledge in so many areas, even down to beauty tips and general life guidance! Her friendliness and motivational support really helps you get through your programme. I never thought I would be going to the gym by myself at weekends and using some of the equipment she has taught me to use. The fitness programme was great and I loved what I could achieve from weight training rather than loads of cardio which isn’t my favourite! It has been a fantastic educational experience for me and the knowledge I have gained will help me with my health and fitness for the rest of my life.
I have toned up in all the right places and got down past my goal to 8 stone 2. I felt great in a bikini on my hen do in Spain and my wedding dress fit perfectly. To some it may seem like an extravagance to hire a personal trainer but I don’t know what is more important that your fitness, health and wellbeing and it’s worth every penny.
Thank you Charlie 

Damon Reynolds – Bodybuilder

I heard about Charlie through another friend who had some brilliant results. I myself have been bodybuilding /weight training for 2 years. I was happy with my progress but wanted to take the next step and start to look at my diet and nutrition to show off the muscles I had built under my layer of fat.
I did mention to Charlie that under no circumstances would I do cardio as its just not for me. Her reply was music to my ears “with proper diet control this wouldn’t be required to gain the results I wanted”. Charlie put me on a macros diet. I was shocked how many calories I was actually allowed. I emailed Charlie and she explained everything to me. I found charlie to be brilliant at returning any of my emails and text’s within an hour or two which is just brilliant.
My results for the 1st month were brilliant! Never before had I lost so much weight in such a short time scale. Charlie did ask me to eat more as she said I was losing it to quickly, but I felt myself being full all the time on this diet and I struggled to do so. Following on from my initial month im not as strict as I was when I was dieting but the weight has stayed off. I haven’t lost anymore weight but I can see in the mirror my body changing for the better and my waist is still shrinking.
On the short of it I found charlie to be very professional knowledgeable and caring in her role as mentor and I can’t thank her enough for pointing me in the right direction.

Tina’s Testimonial

Tina – Business Owner and Keen Gym Goer

Charlie takes an intelligent approach to fitness. In PT the workouts are interesting and varied but appropriate to age and fitness level. She has an intuitive grasp of how far to push and is always positive and encouraging. Yet for one who is adept across a variety of disciplines: weight training: yoga: cardio to mention a few: her knowledge is considerable.

I would not hesitate to recommend Charlie as a Fitness practitioner.  With such an incredible work ethic and her sunny personable approach , I have no doubt that she will go far.

My fitness journey with Charlie has been fantastic and I can’t recommend her enough!

I’d never put on weight until I suffered a knee injury, which ended me playing any type of sport. Consequently, I quickly gained weight and lost any shape that I had. I felt horrid and my confidence suffered! I was still able to train at the gym and did a ton of cardio but annoyingly couldn’t budge the weight. Often, I’d see Charlie training her clients and could see the huge changes in their bodies. I decided it was my turn to ask for help and change my body which was the best decision I’ve made!

Charlie analysed my diet (which was the main problem) and taught me how to train effectively in the gym to achieve my body goals. My diet wasn’t nutritious in the slightest and I was eating SO much sugar, a lot of it being hidden in yoghurt and other foods I didn’t think contained much sugar. I now track my diet and follow a higher protein diet which is also flexible so I can still eat the foods I enjoy. Charlie is full of nutritional knowledge and teaches you about the effect different foods have on your body- for me this was mainly the sugar. The food I eat now is healthy, delicious and gives me much more energy throughout the day.
Charlie’s PT sessions are fantastic and I always looked forward to them. She’s extremely encouraging and pushes you to train to your best. When training legs, Charlie took my injured knee into consideration and we often did single leg exercises so my good leg wouldn’t take over.

Charlie is a passionate, friendly personal trainer and treats each client’s individual needs. You can tell she loves her job as she gets just as excited as I do when I lose the weight! My only regret is that I didn’t start training with Charlie sooner.  I’ve lost nearly a stone and feeling great for it! She gives you the knowledge on how to lead a better lifestyle.  A better body, clearer skin, more energy and more confidence!!

THANK YOU CHARLIE!

I first heard about Charlie’s work from friends. I had previously enjoyed training for a running event and then discovered swimming but I’d never set foot inside a gym and hadn’t considered doing so. However, my first discussion with Charlie was so inspiring (and I learnt that it’s 80% nutrition and 20% fitness) that it transformed my attitude towards achieving a balanced healthy active lifestyle.

I started one of Charlie’s nutrition and fitness programmes and quickly became hooked by her methods of training, nutritional advice and constant enthusiastic support. She is highly professional and has built a wide range of knowledge and is always happy to recommend further information available from websites or books.

I was so pleased with the early results for myself that I asked Charlie to create a programme to include my family which has been a lot of fun and improved the nutritional quality of our family meals and enabled my teenagers to discover a love of yoga.

I always look forward to my sessions with Charlie who inspires me to complete the toughest of workouts with the words “push through, push through…”

There’s only so long you can think about doing something before taking action… I must have spent a year, at least, looking at transformation pictures and reading testimonials before I decided it was time to take control. I’ve never been particularly over weight but I have never been fit either. I chose to do the 12 week program with Charlie as I needed to fully commit in order to stick with it. The thing that surprised me was how enjoyable the training sessions are. I’ve never used weights and resistance machines to any extent in the past, mainly focussing on the dreaded cardio. At first it seems too easy, why aren’t I puffing and panting? But Charlie takes the time to explain why and how training muscle groups works so well for calorie burning and re shaping your body. Plus the aches and pains in your legs and arms after a good train is all the proof you need that you’re working hard enough! I also learnt a lot about eating correctly and the massive difference this can make to not only your physical appearance but also to so many other aspects of life, from moods, to sleep patterns…. And the fact that having a game of football with the kids no longer made me feel unfit and unhealthy. So after the 12 weeks I dropped from a loose skinned 10st 11 to under 9 and a half stone. My waist has dropped 5 inches and I have muscles! Real muscles! Abs, triceps, quads!

I never thought that at 40 I could be in the best shape of my life. I’m beyond grateful to Charlie for taking me on and giving way the tools to maintain a healthy balanced life. Yes, I am that girl who drinks protein shakes and sometimes has to forfeit things so as not to miss a gym session but it’s the smallest price to pay to have a physique that I never considered could be mine.
