Stronger and Fitter
I was at a flat point and was asked what I was going to do about it. “I want to get fit”, was my response. Here started my journey with Rachel. When I started it was all about just learning to be coordinated and to get through the session. Now I am at a point where mostly I have mastered the technique of the exercises and am able to listen to my body. Rachel has helped me become stronger and fitter than I have ever been and her assistance helped me achieve my goal to do the Outward Bound 10-day course no mean feat when I had to learn to run, something I had never done prior.
My sessions are no longer just about keeping fit but are so much more and are pivotal to my overall health and well-being.
Happy and more positive
I was a client of Rachel's for the last half of 2015 and I can say that she has positively influenced and changed my life for the better. Not only did she create an exercise programme that worked for me, she tailored it around my likes and dislikes. Rachel completely understood my 18 years old self and helped me to work through stress to have a more positive outlook on life without missing out on anything. Not only with the help of Rachel did I mange to loose 7kgs in 12 or so weeks but she also helped to create a happy and more positive version of myself. I honestly cannot thank Rachel enough for everything she has done for me. I have taken all of Rachel’s tips and tricks with me as I move to Uni and focus on having a healthy life.
Helped me turn my life around
Fate was on my side when I Googled to find a personal trainer and met Rachel.
Thinking that all I needed was someone to help me get fit and lose weight, I hired Rachel only to discover multiple sides to this inspirational woman. She is also a qualified NLP practitioner which was an added bonus for me as I had some underlying issues that needed dealing with and exercise alone wouldn’t have worked for me.
Rachel’s time with me has helped me turn my life around. Rachel is also a qualified dog behaviourist which I also benefitted from. I adopted Murphy from the pound with Rachel’s encouragement and care. Those extra kilos have lessened while my fitness has increased and I have found happiness again.
Thank you Rachel for all your help
The thought of attending a gym each week with all the young 25yr olds, as a 54yr old trying to get in better health and shape did not appeal to me. I didn't believe it would be easy to stick with, and that after a few months would give it away and waste membership like so many others. So having Rachel as my Personal Trainer coming to our home seemed a good option. From the start Rachel made it easy to help me get in shape, lose weight and feel healthy and wonderful.
After being on the programme for 4 months, my life has changed so much, eating smaller portions instead of a man size meal, eating good healthy food, and thinking about what I eat, instead of eating for the sake of it, or as comfort food.
Thank you Rachel, I look and feel so much better, yes it wasn't easy for the first couple of weeks to get into routine, the exercise programme is designed to suit the individual and changed frequently. What a difference,I exercise daily, it is part of everyday life, feel amazing, look wonderful, will have to get a whole new wardrobe. Lost over 7 kilos, my goals are being met, and my new lifestyle change will be with me forever I enjoy exercise, have improved health, better movement, better life, ageless.
Healthy lifestyle no stress
I've really enjoyed the fitness sessions, as well as the caring approach to total well-being and while focusing on results, the expectations are realistic. For me with the stress I live with this is very important. It's not just been all about weight loss, which I thought was the only important thing, but also the healthy lifestyle, stress reduction and enjoyment of activity. Rachel, in her caring yet professional manner, and her great range of exercises, keeps it fun and interesting while encouraging and challenging me in all these areas.
Diabetes under control
I'm a type 2 diabetic
Had been going to gym and walking but noticed weight and sugar levels were creeping up. Something was not right.
Heard about Rachel from All Active and signed up.
She reviewed my dietary habits and made changes and provided a weekly exercise program. Also talked about sleep patterns, managing stress and drinking water!
In 6 months my weight is down from 84 to 77 and sugar levels down from 48 to 39 .
I found that I am more accountable with her weekly follow ups . Each session is never the same.
Overall with my sugar levels being stable, I feel more healthy physically and better mentally.
Thank you Rachel for all your help.
