Here at Reach we really place an emphasis on results. Even though we include assessments and programmes in the membership, sometimes people need that little bit more, which is where personal training comes in! Thousands of individuals join gyms, hire trainers and coaches every year. Why is it that many, to their great frustration, often never see any change in the way their bodies perform or look?

This lack of results and loss of progress costs time and money and is often due to misconceptions and a misunderstanding of what is required. One size does not fit all. Just as we require a specific shoe size, we all require a different exercise programme. For customised results you need a customised programme.

Our Trainers have developed the components that take the guesswork out of reaching your goals and put the science back in. With one-to-one personal training, we provide a complete exercise system that will guarantee that you reach your goals in the most efficient and enjoyable way.

Your body adapts to an exercise after 4-5 exposures, therefore it is vital that as your body changes, so must your workout. We can provide you with a cutting-edge protocol that can take you to a level you have never dreamed of – always based on specific needs and desired results.

All our trainers are available for personal training (PT). Prices typically start at around £30 per session and you can make effective progress from as little as 3 sessions a month

More About Sophie

In 2008, after gaining a lot of weight, I decided to go to the gym. I was serious about losing weight and sought out a Personal Trainer who helped me to stay motivated and achieve results. As my health and fitness levels increased, I found a good balance in leading a healthier lifestyle.

From seeing the amazing results that this change can make I decided to change careers and moved away from Medical Sales into the Health and Fitness Industry. It has since become a great passion and way of life.

I have an honours degree in Psychology which makes me aware of how powerful the right mental approach can be in motivating people to achieve their goals. I am passionate about helping you achieve your fitness goals, whether your focus is on losing weight, gaining muscle, increasing flexibility or training for your favourite sport.

When it comes to constructing a client’s training program I look at more than just the exercises in the gym, I give full nutritional support by providing recipes and diet plans. No two people are the same so my aim is to help others change their lives by increasing their activity levels and fine tuning their nutritional habits to achieve successful results.

I will encourage you every step of the way, ensuring you reach your targets in an effective manner by providing the motivation and expertise whilst keeping the sessions varied and fun but above all, effective.

So if you’re looking for someone to help you stay motivated, guide you with nutritional advice and support you in achieving your goals please don’t think twice about getting in touch.

Consultations and treatments are very personal taking into account medical history, work activities, injuries and posture.
