strong body | strong mind
I’m Sophie – a Personal Trainer and Wellness Coach helping women in SW11 to ditch the cardio machines and feel fitter, stronger and more confident through strength training and full body conditioning.
I’m occupying this little corner of the Internet out of a genuine love of fitness. And I mean actual fitness, in all its sweaty, unglamorous, exhausting yet energising glory. You know, the type that will light you up and leave you feeling strong enough to take on the whole world and win! Because in a world where we’re under constant pressure to look amazing, I want you to feel amazing too.
I believe that all good fitness programmes should boost your mind as well as your body, helping you to shake off any built up tension or stress so you can reset, refocus and restart stronger than before.
I offer a range of 1:1 coaching packages and group fitness classes with this very aim in mind. So whether you’re in need of a fitness boost; a progressive strength-training programme or you’re simply craving more energy, motivation and confidence – you’re in the right place.
- Stuck in a fitness rut (again)?
- Running on autopilot every day, feeling stressed, tired and lethargic?
- Lacking confidence and motivation in the gym?
- Bored of the cardio machines but intimidated by the weights section?
- Ready to hit the reset button after lockdown but not sure where to start?
There’s no denying it. Walking into a gym can feel pretty intimidating at the best of times. Especially after lockdown. And especially if you’re not 100% sure what you’re doing.
But here’s the thing…nothing changes, if nothing changes.
So if you’re ready to break free from the treadmill, find your confidence in the gym, fire up your strength, fitness and energy levels more than you even knew was possible and shake up your routine once and for all, I can help you.
As your coach, I will teach you all you need to know about movement, strength-training and conditioning, creating a bespoke training programme which will get you smashing your goals and feeling lighter, brighter, more energised, more resilient and ready to handle whatever the day throws at you.
work with me
My signature group fitness classes have been designed to complement each other perfectly. HIT will push you to the max, increase your strength and fitness levels and send your energy levels through the roof, whilst RESTORE will give you the time and space to breathe, calm your mind and soothe your body with a gentle stretching, recovery routine.
My 1:1 coaching programme, TRAIN, brings you the full fitness and wellness package, whilst giving you the flexibility to decide the level of support you need. Choose between a 6-week or 12-week bespoke Personal Training programme focused on building your strength, fitness and confidence in the gym, and creating a fresh, new routine which energises you, rather than drains you.
Soph is the best personal trainer! She really helped my mental and physical health during the pandemic. She is friendly, professional, always has a range of equipment and routines, she knows how far to push you so you get the most out of each session. A true gem!
Sophie’s sessions have been a fantastic release and amazingly motivating. She’s always keen to make our time as focused and effective as possible and it goes SO quickly! Sophie listened to all of my goals and aims when we first met and incorporates them into every session. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!
Since working with Sophie I’ve upped my strength and fitness levels, whilst learning correct form and incorporating stretches and exercises into my own weekly routine. To anyone thinking of working with Sophie I’d say go for it! Sophie takes the time to listen to what you want and also ensures you’re challenging yourself but works to your pace too. Sophie is very motivating and supportive towards your fitness goals. My only wish is that we could have done more indoor sessions before lockdown happened!
I had some fantastic sessions with Sophie! She has really helped me with my own self-awareness and at the end of each session I have always felt uplifted and motivated! I have gained more understanding of how exercise benefits my mindset, and have implemented several changes in my life since working with Sophie such as stepping back into fitness again. I felt like I had lost my way but Sophie has helped me to realise how good it makes me feel. My main takeaway from working with Sophie is that anything and everything really is possible. Sophie is living proof! If you want to switch your mindset, focus on feeling positive and letting go of the negatives by incorporating exercise and making your overall wellbeing a priority, Sophie is fantastic! Sophie is very warm and friendly and I would recommend working with her to anyone who is ready to make a change.
