A success for everyone?
Before joining Skinny Jeans School I was regularly rowing and using the cross trainer without achieving results. My aim was to tone up and lose a few pounds. I am over the moon that I have consistently lost and my total loss is over a stone. The classes have been fabulous for me and it has been so motivating to achieve weekly results. My eating habits have changed for the better but I still (over) drink and indulge!
I have since joined KT’s Bootcamp and love it. The structure of training three times a week at 6.30am is exactly what I need to maintain my weighI am confident that I will maintain my new weight and shape. I can’t speak highly enough of SJS.
After relentless tutting each time I tried to eat cake and deny it, I started to eat healthier. I also started to train with KT three times a week either in personal training or joining her classes. The weight dropped off, my muscles became defined and my confidence started to come back. I started to enjoy shopping and didn’t hate looking in the mirror anymore.
At 63 I am fitter than I was at 33. I attend KT’s Bootcamp and do my best to keep up, but regardless I love to lift weights and squat jump with a great group of people at a wonderful studio!
Normal gyms never appealed much to me. Even the one at my school. I knew I wanted to get fitter but, as a bit of a beginner, I found the atmosphere of exercising in large groups a bit off-putting. It was also always difficult to find the time to fit in around my studies and A level revision timetable.
So I signed up with KT for a flexible programme of one to one sessions which went on throughout my last few months of sixth form at school and over the subsequent summer holidays.
It worked out really well. I could learn to exercise properly in a safe professional environment and quickly gained in strength, fitness and confidence. KT was brilliant at designing a personalised programme for me and kept my motivation high with frequent changes of routine and her infectious and unyielding enthusiasm. She was also a great source of help on the dietary front providing lots of tips, hints and support as to what to eat to underpin the exercise programme (not always the easiest thing to do when you’re a constantly ravenous teenager, stressed by A levels and with a profound love of pizza).
I’m at university now on the south coast and have joined the gym on campus (something I would probably not have done before) but am looking forward to catching up with KT in my holidays to get a top up of her expertise and enthusiasm.
I completed my first Olympic distance triathlon in a time I could truly be proud of and I simply could not have done it without KT’s knowledge, help and encouragement. I also know that other personal trainers frequently ask KT for help with their clients and look to KT for advice on all things personal training.
She made me hit the weights and I started to see results within a few months. I’ve taken pictures each month and am really pleased with the restyles. Not only does KT train me in the hour I spend with her, but she gives me a range of exercises that I can easily do at the gym or at home. For a ‘cardio person’ she has really introduced me to weight training and I love it.
Im as fit at 58 as I felt at 38 plus my strength and flexibility has surprised me. Now my other knee has gone ive got all that rehab to look forward to! Katie engenders a great sense of cameraderie among her clients and her joint classes are superb theres a kind of club atmosphere without the negative overtones that the chains bring to fitness establishments. She really cares about her clients . Top trainer!
KT tailored her approach to suit my needs. She was patient, empathic and very encouraging. This has enabled me to feel much stronger and fitter and more importantly I have gained confidence and have the energy to re-embark on a life that had been on hold for many years! I will be forever grateful to KT and her belief in me; as I am convinced if she had not had the ability to be an all round effective coach as well as trainer I would have quit after a couple of sessions.
The sessions are varied, but always with my goal in mind. I leave feeling thoroughly worked out and drive to work like I’ve been through the wringer, but it’s so worth it. She kept me on track with my eating and nights out in a healthy way. I’m allowed treats without feeling guilt, but know we still have a goal to achieve.
I have been taught many training techniques that have dramatically improved my fitness, strength and flexibility. I used to run along the streets, but now I run muddy events, go mountain biking and have completed in adventure races – and yes, all with KT as she supports not only training, but runs right along side you in the events. She event invites you to her weekends at Llandegla, so I’ve not only found a trainer, I’ve gained a friend. Highly recommends. It’s not only great, it’s great fun.
KT is an excellent motivator and has encouraged me to continue the hard work because it’s so worth it.
She worked 4 sessions a week with Laura over the summer and not only did she lose a stone in weight, she got significantly fitter. KT built up a close trusting relationship with my daughter and improved her confidence and self belief both of which were low after problems with bullying at high school.
It had been about 12 months since my operation and I’d not only piled on the pounds, but become unfit and felt really down about myself. KT put me on a 12-week progressive programme that incorporated our 1 PT session each week, but also included workouts I was to do at the gym or home. KT also sent over recipes, meal plans and constantly monitored my food diary. In short, KT’s support has transformed my life over the last 12 months. Yes, through all the training, but more than that, through the education. I constantly look to KT for support, but the way she provides it means I have a much better idea of how to workout and eat properly. I am fitter, stronger, leaner and happier with my body than ever before. I even went Windsurfing this year and can honestly say… I absolutely smashed it!!!!
I would highly recommend working with KT either through personal training, attending her workshops or just becoming a friend. She’s been excellent.
I thought the amount of exercise I was doing would surely give me the results I wanted, however, KT advised me to try a different way of training, strength training and working on toning up do a wide variety of exercises each session to keep me motivated.
I have to say she was right, she knows how hard to push me and the results I’ve had are amazing. I might not be the weight I want to be (yet…not far off) but the muscles are there ready underneath! Fabulous trainer who really knows her stuff!
