Personal Training Sessions

My fun, supportive, engaging but challenging personal training sessions are a great way to put the spotlight on your individual fitness goals.


What our training sessions
are all about


I run fun but challenging personalised fitness sessions which are developed with each individual client in mind, allowing for any injuries or mobility restrictions that you might have.  Any likes or dislikes you have will be incorporated into your session because you should enjoy your training session, not just feel like you’ve worked hard. But most importantly, I help you take time out for yourself, hold you accountable to help you stay consistent and if you have set some goals around strength, to keep you on track in achieving them.

I use the time I have with my clients to help them understand that it is time we shifted the narrative around exercise. Exercise is so much more than something on a to-do list to tick off.

It’s time we see it for the selfcare tool it is.



We will all have different drivers for what makes us start or continue with our exercise regime.  But as is widely reported there are many benefits to exercise such as:

  • Increased mobility
  • Improved balance
  • Increased cardiovascular strength
  • Stronger muscles
  • Better endurance levels
  • Maintain work/ life balance
  • Stress Management


There are many benefits
to a good exercise routine.

What our
look like

All training sessions
are bespoke to you.

What our sessions look like

With any new client, I start by having a no-obligation discovery call, either via phone or in person. During our initial call I will explain how our training sessions work with my friendly and supportive coaching style.  We chat through your experience, lifestyle, goals, likes, dislikes and training availability. We then find a time and location that suits you best, whether that’s in your home, your garden, the local park or online.

A session with me can range in length from 30 – 60 minutes and fit in around you.

Each session will be fun and engaging, utilising different bits of equipment from resistance bands to slam-balls.

I have a wide variety of kit that I can bring to you and if we train online then I can be quite creative as to what kit you can adapt with general every-day items you find in the home.

I plan every session with you in mind and then suggest posture tweaks and motivate you through your session in a fun and safe way.

Client Testimonials

I have a long-term condition and keeping strong and flexible is important for my health.  After a recent issue with bursitis in both hips which led to problems with my knees, Sara adapted my training plan to help me to keep attending sessions with her while protecting joints and muscles where needed.  As this has now lasted for over 3 months, she has helped me maintain muscle strength and general fitness during a period when I could easily have given up and retired to a chair!  I am very grateful to her for her knowledge and patience as she has coached me through this frustrating time!
Sarah – Online

We’ve been working together for just over a year now and I’ve really seen a big impact in my game following our sessions. Sara is constantly keeping the sessions fresh and open to feedback on ways I think we might be able to get more out of them. Often, I can be overzealous with my requests which she’s very good at keeping me in check and focussed on my goals.

The weekly sessions are a welcome respite to the monotony of work & family life – Not only being a great trainer, Sara is also a fantastic listener. In between sets (which often isn’t a lot of time – @Sara hint hint), I have the chance to offload some of my life challenges. However trivial they may be, Sara always has a kind word to say or helps to rationalise.

I’d recommend reaching out to Sara to help with your health & fitness goals. She has a wealth of knowledge; and if something isn’t within her repertoire, she’ll go away and research it ready for next time.

Matt – Touch rugby player

I have just completed my first block of sessions with Sara and I am really enjoying it. I no longer live in the UK but as all training has been online recently I thought I would try virtual PT. The virtual aspect of the training has not been a problem at all. What I most like about Sara is that she asked up front what exercises I hate. She also really listens to my feedback about how I am feeling, muscle pain etc, and modifies workouts accordingly. I look forward to the sessions and because of the variety of exercises it doesn’t feel boring. Sara was recommended to me by a good friend and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. She is professional, communicative, really friendly and easy going too. I am really happy that I started working with Sara and I already feel stronger and healthier!

Nicola – Basel, Switzerland

As an anxious and easily stressed individual, Pilates has helped me to take a breather and relax my mind. It’s the only time in the week where my mind isn’t flipping somersaults and I’m able to focus on just me! Sara has helped me to refocus on my strength and instantly helps me to relax within the first moments of a session. Starting with a full body roll down or just some basic shoulder rolls and slow breathing, I’m immediately transported to calmness. I’ve started to see such an improvement in just three months; reduced anxiety, stronger in my core and the ability to better control my breathing.   So far, Pilates has been enormously refreshing and I look forward to continuing to build on my strength and working with Sara, who has been so tremendously fabulous and patient throughout!

Laura, Windsor based online client

“Sara is amazing. She has listened to what I would like to achieve and work on and has tailored my workouts to suit me.  No pressure, just support. Thanks, Sara.”

Sharon – Mum of two

“Sara’s sessions are tailored very specifically to my needs (eg knackered knees!) & wants. She’s very encouraging, and her sessions are always varied & interesting.”

Debbie – Newly retired

“Sara is an excellent PT who is very dedicated to her work. I’ve been training with her for over 7 months and each session is thoroughly planned to suit me and my ongoing progress whilst also being mindful of pre-existing injuries.  She is highly knowledgeable offering advice when asked and also flexible, regularly adjusting sessions on the spot to incorporate my toddler when necessary!”

Sumreen – Mum of two

“Sara has been my PT for a few months now and I feel great for it. The improvement is significant! I have joined many gyms in the past and my attendance always starts to fizzle out after the first few months – whereas Sara turns up at my door, right on schedule, with the motivation to get me working hard. Highly recommend!  I am now doing both PT sessions and also Circuit Training (along with some friends who saw my progress and wanted to join up too).”

Clare – Works in the City

“I started training with Sara 5 months ago. I have wanted to train with her for a while but I live a bit too far away so the virtual sessions have now made it possible.

I am really enjoying training with Sara, she is a great PT, very friendly and helps me to feel comfortable.   Every session is slightly different and tailored to my need and ability. She motivates me to push myself that bit harder each session, the 45 minutes fly by!”

Jen – online client

“I cannot recommend training with Sara strongly enough.  My physical AND mental health has improved so much in a short space of time.  Sara’s programmes are specifically designed for my needs and if ever something is uncomfortable, due to old injuries, she’s able to adapt and still provide me with a great workout.  We have fun, and the sessions are always different, keeping me engaged.  Sara’s enthusiasm makes me work hard and the sessions fly by.  I feel the benefits for days after and can’t wait for the next one to come around.”

Tracy – busy mum of 2
