REVIEWS
IF YOUR THINKING OF GETTING THE HELP OF A PERSONAL TRAINER, YOU COULD NOT FIND ONE BETTER THAN SARAH.
I KNOW SARAH FROM TAKING HER PILATES GROUP AND HAVE SEEN HOW DEDICATED SHE IS TO HELPING OTHERS WITH ALIGNMENT,POSTURE CORRECTION AND BUILDING A STRONG CORE. AT FIRST I WAS APPREHENSIVE ABOUT THE THOUGHT OF PERSONAL TRAINING BUT IT WAS THE BEST DESCION IVE EVER MADE. I WANTED TO LOSE WEIGHT, AND APPROACHING MY MID-FIFTIES WAS SUFFERING FROM REGULAR HOT FLUSHES. AFTER TALKING TO SARAH SHE RECOMMENDED CARDIO AND HIGH INTENSITY WEIGHT TRAINING WOULD REALLY HELP MY FITNESS, WEIGHTLOSS AND HORMONES!
SARAH HAS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE, SKILL AND EXPERTISE AND HELPED ME SET EXERCISE AND NUTRITIONAL GOALS. SHE PUSHES ME FAR MORE THAN I WOULD PUSH MYSELF, AND HAS INTRODUCED ME TO RUNNING, SOMETHING I THOUGHT I COULD NEVER DO. I'VE LOST OVER A STONE SO FAR AND FEEL ALOT HAPPIER NOW WITH MY HEALTH AND WELLBEING.
SARAH IS VERY ENCOURAGING AND MOTIVATING. THE SESSIONS ARE VARIED AND CHALLENGING BUT STILL REALLY ENJOYABLE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SARAH TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL TRAINER WHATEVER  YOUR FITNESS GOALS ARE.
PT SESSIONS HAVE NOW BECOME PART OF MY WEEKLY LIFE!

ALISON SUTTON, YORK
I STARTED PERSONAL TRAINING SESSIONS WITH sARAHTO PRIMARILY LOSE WEIGHT AND GET IN SHAPE. WHAT I HADNT REALISED WAS HOW MUCH A PREVIOUS INJURY AND NUTRITION WERE HOLDING ME BACK.
SARAH CARRIED OUT A FULL POSTURE ASSESMENT BEFORE STARTING PT SESSIONS AND THIS IN ITSELF HIGHLIGHTED A NUMBER OF ALIGNMENT AND POSTURE ISSUES.
SARAH WORKED WITH ME 1;1 FOR A FEW MONTHS AND I ALSO INCORPERATED SARAH'S WEEKLY PILATES CLASSES AND THE RESULTS WERE AMAZING!
NOT ONLY DID MY INJURY PAIN DRAMATICALLY REDUCE BUT I WAS ABLE TO TRAIN 5 TIMES A WEEK WHICH I HADNT BEEN ABLE TO DO IN YEARS.
SARAH HAD CORRECTED A LONG STANDING HIP ISSUE I HAD FOR YEARS. ONE THAT 3 PHYSIOS AND TWO CHIROPRACTORS COULD NOT. FOR THIS I WILL BE FOREVER GREATFUL.
SARAH ALSO GAVE ME NUTRITION ADVICE AND WORKOUTS TO DO AT HOME, AT THE GYM AND ON HOLIDAY TO JUST KEEP HEALTHY AND MOVING. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SARAH TO ANYONE WANTING A DEDICATED PERSONAL TRAINER. SARAH LOOKED BEYOND WHAT I INITIALLY ASKED FOR AND HELPED ME IN MANY WAYS. AS A RESULT I LOST 1 AND HALF STONE,20" AND MOST IMPORTANTLYHAVE MINIMAL PAIN WHEN EXERCISED

IVE KNOWN SARAH FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, I MET HER AT ONE OF HER PILATES CLASSES,FROM THAT DAY ON I STILL ENJOY PILATES. SARAH TRULY GIVES YOU A  GOOD WORKOUT ,SHE GIVES YOU MODIFICATIONS FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT MOVES, SO YOU CAN CHALLENGE YOURSELF AS YOU PROGRESS. IVE ALSO SEEN SARAH FOR PERSONAL TRAINING PROGRAM. SARAH DOES A FULL ASSESMENT WITH YOU, SO SHE KNOWS THE AREAS YOUWANT TO WORK ON. I WILL ADMIT THIS WAS TOUGH, BUT THE BENEFITS ARE VERY SATISFYING. 
MY HUSBAND WAS HAVING LOWER BACK PAIN, SCIATICA PAIN ALL DOWN HIS LEG FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, NOT BEEN ABLE TO SIT OR DRIVE FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME , HE WAS IN ALOT OF PAIN. HE HAD SCAN, WHEN THE DR SAID HE WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT&TAKE PAIN KILLERS FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.  I MENTIONED THIS TO SARAH & HE STARTED 1:1 CORRECTION WORK WITH HER.  SARAH DID DIFFERENT EXERCISES WITH HIM EACH WEEK & SENT HIM HOME WITH A ROUTINE TO DO EVERYDAY.  (HE STILL DOES THEM NOW), 2 YEARS LATER AS HE ENJOYS DOING THEM)HE WENT TO SARAH WEEKLY FOR 4 MONTHS, THEN EVERY OTHER WEEK FOR 2 MONTHS. HE WAS THEN TOTALLY PAIN FREE. WE CANT THANK SARAH ENOUGH, SHE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL&TALENTED LADY. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SARAH

 I KNEW THAT I'D NEED SOME SUPPORT RETURNING TO FITNESS FOLLOWING A C - SECTION,SO I CONTACTED SARAH DURING MY PREGNANCY AND HAVE NOW BEEN SEEING HER ON A 1:1 FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. I WANTED A TRAINERWHO UNDERSTOOD POSTNATAL ISSUES SUCH AS DIASTI RECTI AND WHO ALSO UNDERSTOOD HAVING LITTLE SPARE TIME! SARAH IS BRILLANT AT DEVISING ROUTINES THAT YOU CAN FIT INTO YOUR LIFESTYLE, NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE. I FEEL THAT IM ENJOYING MY MATERNITY LEAVE BETTER THIS TIME ROUND WITH MY SECOND CHILD, AS THANKS TO SARAH'S EXERCISES, I FEEL STRONGER AND AM KEEPING PACE WITH THE EVER GROWING WEIGHT OF MY BABY. I ALWAYS COME OUT OF SARAH'S SESSIONS FEELING RE-ENERGISED AND WOULD HAVE NO HESIATATION RECOMMENDING HER.

​RUTH THIJSSEN, YORK
IVE BEEN DOING PILATES WITH SARAH FOR OVER 4 YEARS NOW, INCLUDING DURING 2 PREGNANCIES. I HAVE ALSO SEEN SARAH ON 1:1 BASIS TO CORRECT POST NATAL SEPERATION AND GENERALLY TO GET INTO BETTER SHAPE POST BABY NUMBER 2. SARH HAS HELPED ME GREATLY!
DURING PREGNANCY SHE HELPED ME STAY MOBILE AND KEEP EXERCISING IN A SAFE WAY. SHE WOULD MODIFY MOVES FOR ME WHERE THEY WEREN'T SAFE DURING PREGNANCY AND GIVE ME ADVICE ON WHERE I SHOULD/NT PUSH MYSELF. I DEFINATLEY THINK I HAD BETTER PREGNANCIES BECAUSE OF KEEPING UP PILATES WITH SARAH.
THE POST NATAL CORRECTION WORK SHE DID WITH ME GAVE ME CONFIDENCE TO EXERCISE PROPERLY AGAIN AND FOR MY BODY TO FEEL NORMAL AGAIN. I FELT SO MUCH STRONGER AND ENERGISED AFTER JUST A HANDFUL OF WEEKS AND IT  MADE A BIG VISUAL DIFFERENCE TO MY BODY, ESPECIALLY POSTURE. SHE IS GREAT AT GETTING THE RIGHT BALANCE AT PUSHING YOUBUT ALSO UNDERSTANDING THAT YOU HAVE TO FIT THINGS AROUND AN INCREASINGLY HECTIC LIFESTYLE. 
I I COULD'NT RECOMMEND SARAH ENOUGH!
