Hi, I’m Alex. I’m a level 3 Personal Trainer and Registered Nutritionist.
I love helping people find a nutrition and exercise strategy that works for them. There’s nothing better than supporting people as they move from feeling stuck in a rut with their diet and exercise to a place where they enjoy what they are doing, are increasing their self-esteem and smashing their goals.
Having studied sport science and nutrition at university, for the past 5 years I have worked in the community, the NHS, and occupational health supporting people to improve their body composition, health, dietary intake, meet their fitness goals, and improve their self-esteem.
I can help you to: to lose fat, tone up and/or build muscle; form new, sustainable lifestyle habits; ditch fad-diets and yo-yo dieting forever; enjoy exercise whilst achieving your goals; and improve your health.
With my quirky laugh, amiable charm and down to earth attitude makes me a true Yorkshire lass. I love being outdoors, hike with a view over a pub crawl any day. My journey began when I fell pregnant with my daughter. Naturally I stopped the unhealthy habits and wanted to be the best version of myself. I almost instantly felt the change and soon came to realise I was in control of my own happiness and health and I want to educate others while I carry on learning. Being such a people person and my passion being fitness and everything that surrounds it, I started to think about a change of career. The fact I can help people better themselves for a living makes me so excited and I am determined to help as many people as I can.
Being a very active person anything that has to do with fitness is very interesting to me and I am always looking to build on my knowledge. My future plans are to study more intensely nutrition more intensely. I cater to all healthy diets, however If you are pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan I can offer you some essential tips. Also, if you are pregnant or postpartrum I also have extensive experience in safe workouts.
I started my journey at i-motion as a personal trainer, I have grown personally and professionally in the role and had the chance to work with some amazing people.
I am also a fitness instructor at the gym, I teach Body Pump, Spin, Boot-camp and other functional classes. I love the buzz I get from teaching, feeling the energy from the members and working out with a group.
As a personal trainer I tend to work with people looking to lose weight. I have coached my clients through some of the most rewarding transformations, which is the reason I came into the industry originally.
I started the gym 3 years ago as I have a strong love for fitness, my journey has been tough. There has been many challenges along the way, but I embrace these challenges and succeed in the goals that I had set for myself, now I strive for bigger and better things.
It's great that I've been given the opportunity to start my apprenticeship as it will help me fulfil my dreams to become a personal trainer and also improve the knowledge I already have about fitness and nutrition.
I am looking forward to getting my qualifications to become a personal trainer so I can help other people with their fitness journey, and help them succeed at their goals no matter what stage they are at in their journey.
