How does it work?

From your initial consultation, we will identify the areas of your health &/or fitness that need to change! Whether that’s looking at energy levels, lack of mobility or core strength, family or time constraints or general fitness, we will work with you towards your goals, at times to suit your availability.

We can invite you to train with us at our private gym facility or remotely via zoom, when distance and time are limiting factors, as well as plan a weekly timetable of sessions and short term goals for you to work on.

1-1 Personal Coaching is not a one off – it’s a journey that’s built on trust, support and a plan that’s challenging, inspiring and achievable – for you!

What clients say


Jenny (42)

Training with Claire has given me far more energy than it has taken from me. I have muscles that I have never had before and have already reached my goal of being bike fit for this Spring to cycle in the Peaks.

Jodie (September 2020)

Me & My mum started training sessions with Claire a few weeks ago. We are really enjoying it, each session is so different. Claire pushes us so much even when we are feeling tired as she knows what we can achieve! Claire is so knowledgeable and has so much enthusiasm. Thanks again!

Fiona (Feb 2019)

Questions & Answers

How can you help me lose weight & improve my fitness?

We will run through some key health & fitness checks, in order to set the bar - where are you now and where you need to be - both from your and our perspective - quite often they have some differences! There is no magic formula, no magic diet, no magic set of exercises as everyone is unique. We will have a starting point, identify areas of your nutrition and / or fitness that need to change (remember nothing changes if nothing changes), plan the end targets (based on all your existing metrics and fitness levels) and put together a bespoke plan that's achievable in small chunks, reviewed on a regular basis, and adapted around your work/life/family life.

Why should I use a personal Health & Fitness coach?

Motivation. Accountability. Support. Encouragement. 
Professional & personal knowledge, understanding & experience of individual client's needs.

How much will this cost me?

From £100 per month (for 4 individual personal coaching sessions) to a wide range of options for bespoke coaching to support your needs, from nutrition analysis for health & wellbeing (eg: Menopause) to training for a specific event (such as a charity walk) or even that big day. 

Can you help with training for an event?

Planning for an event several months away is key to ensure you arrive on the day knowing your fitness, endurance & strength is ready for the challenge. Sticking to a plan ensures fatigue levels are managed (overtraining can often lead to failure), along with ensuring the right balance of fuel and recovery, to keep progressing across all areas. From one off challenges to maintaining a high performance throughout a season, we can work with you to achieve that goal.

Family time! Last night we had a really fun ride in the cool of the evening. We played games on the ride, racing up the hills in our easiest gears spinning our legs as fast as possible and going, well pretty slowly, but what a laugh!! We must have looked a right sight! Exercise doesn’t always have to be structured and rigid - have fun, have a laugh, it’s not always about hitting targets. It’s about enjoying the ride
😎🚴‍♀️😎🚴‍♀️ #enjoytheride #exerciseisfun #fitnessfun

Claire 1 | Peri-menopause 0 last week! Bloating down, energy levels up, motivation button ON! OK so every week tells a different story in this stage of life but I’ll take that as a win. Accepting the ups and downs is all part of life’s journey and if I need my bigger pants next week so be it.

Anxiety / irritability levels are still tipping up and down randomly but as the hormones and chemicals are whipping around in a frenzy I’ll just have to let the family cope with them as best they can 😂

Here’s to another week of life in the fast lane with peri-menopause! #fitat50 #perimenopause #womeninspiringwomen #mumsofinstagram #nutrition #wellbeing #health #fitness

Its the small things that make me smile.

What makes you smile? Find something that makes you focus on yourself and forget about the daily grind.

1-1 personal coaching sessions are just one way to treat yourself to some well deserved me time - especially if you need to focus your energy away from work. Always happy to offer more Butt kicking sessions 🙂 #metime #Glutes #focusonme #health #nutrition #wellbeing #bollington #cheshire #stressbusting

***Fuelling for Sustained efforts and avoiding cramps***

Working with endurance athletes at National level is a massive nutrition challenge!!

Fuelling at such high intensities for long periods of time needs careful regulation of fuel and hydration in, to maintain the available energy for the irregular intensities, avoid ‘hitting the wall’ and have something left in the tank for the finish line, not to mention avoiding cramp!

I’m super proud of this athlete who not only finished one of the hardest races in his 2021 National race calendar, but finished in the main group in the top 40 out of 120 starters of some of the UKs best juniors.

Without cramping! Woohoo!!

We’ve been working on off bike stretching and rehydration strategies as this young rider was losing time and places due to muscle cramps.

Don’t suffer, look at areas you can improve on for some easy wins. Replacing lost minerals due to sweat, targeting stretching for your discipline. Sleep…. Don’t forget the power of sleep.

On to the next race, can’t wait!! #nutritioninsport #nutrition #performance #cyclinglife #resultsmatter

Plank face!! Not sure if it was the mild hot flush or yesterday’s jab but either way, glowing and up and on it this morning, with the Elite crew online for plank Friday! Smashed it!! 💪 #plankit

OK so its here - my journey into the next phase has started - what a great 49th birthday present! A few months ago I felt like my body just wasn't quite itself, I'd be sitting quite comfortably in the kitchen, then BOOM, there it was, a feeling of rising fire up through my body, flinging off sweatshirts and t-shirts, opening doors and windows in order try and rebalance my body temperature. What on earth was going on!? This repeated itself over a few weeks and then stopped as suddenly as it arrived.

Last week it was bloating - and boy was that a shock not fitting into my favourite jeans which i had worn just the week before!

A quick call and an appointment made at the GP with a menopause specialist, who confirmed, I was entering the first stages of Perimenopause.... which has far more symptoms in itself than actually reaching menopause and can last several years too! Great news indeed!

So lets celebrate and enjoy this next phase of womanhood! As my daughter has just had her 16th birthday and is enjoying her new phase, I will be involving all my family and friends in mine - sharing is caring?

Symptoms - let's talk symptoms - are you experiencing any of the most common symptoms below? Please let me know - I've not been on this journey before so I would love some company along the way. Let's talk and celebrate this journey together - her to listen and learn!

One session, 3 different sets of legs with this cheeky boy. And not a single swing. Keep it simple. Keep it fun! #kettlebell #strengthtraining #thisgirlcan #fitnessfun ...

It really feels like yet another new beginning as we ease into the next stages, and how great does that feel?! Mondays really do have that New Start buzz so go grab it and enjoy! We are still online every day with Bitesize Mobility and Core, and online Spin, as well as daytime personal training slots too! Here to lend a helping hand to support you on any part of your health & well-being journey. #wellbeing #fitness #exercise #cycling ##café #corestrength #bollington #nutrition ...

***A helping hand***

1-1 personal coaching is just that. A helping hand to stay on track, to know you are keeping everything in balance, and to be confident in your weekly life choices around health, nutrition and fitness.

However, life isn’t a bed of roses, and has a cheeky habit of getting in the way of well laid plans!

Sometimes we all need a bit of support and encouragement and, let’s face it, a mental boost! And that’s where I can help.

If you need a chat around your current goals and personal expectations, don’t be too hard on yourself and let me support and guide you around the areas where you feel you are losing some control, whether it’s fuelling, weight management, fatigue, work/life balance or simply general core conditioning.

Here to listen, and give a helping hand.

Lunch just got a little bit more tasty!! @knowlesgreen_bollington #shoplocal #bollington #postriderecovery ...

Finding the balance isn't easy. So if it seems like there's not enough time in the day, then that's a definite sign that something needs to change!

Make a list of the top 5 jobs that need doing each day, if anything new pops up - don't add it.... you are already full!

I'll keep saying it, switch of the social media (emails/text/Facebook) for fixed times during the day. If someone really wants or needs you, they will pick up the phone.

Go grab your life and make it yours, and if you need a helping hand in any part of your health or wellbeing, please, just ring! Have a great weekend!

What an amazing sunny week we've had! I hope everyone has had their fill of Vitamin D. Despite a pretty weary and achy last 36 hours, I'm extremely grateful to have had my first jab, and look forward to the next steps as we continue to unlock back to normality. Still keeping you mobile and active Monday to Friday with Bitesize mobility and core sessions, and online cycling. Unlimited access £25 per month with subscriptions online at

Here's to another fun filled active week! #onlineexercise #onlinepersonalcoach #fitness #health #cyling #cyclist #nutrition #Wellbeing #personaltraining #bollington #macclesfield

Planning the weekly meals, snacks and shopping list??

Start with the plants and protein sources and you can’t go far wrong!

Don’t worry about keeping a few processed foods like pizzas and ready meals in the freezer for those emergency moments. We all need those!
