Alex trained with me for nearly a year, we worked on making him 'super fit & strong'! Since I've known him he's grown into a lovely young man, participating in every sport he could get into and making massive improvements in his communication and speech. Alex has Downs Syndrome, this meant that communication was challenging to begin with, but over time and as we got to know each other, he soon came out of his shell and has a wicked sense of humour. Due to our training he now has the confidence and fitness to do a monthly Park Run at Eaton Park with his Dad!
Marie came to me for advice regarding weight lifting and resistance training. She was already an avid runner, doing multiple long distance races with her Dad. I created four separate programs that Marie followed over her final year at UEA. And bam she got abs!!!! Marie now trains independently and has maintained this great shape.
Shereen came to me after being involved in a nasty road traffic collision, she'd had her confidence knocked, she wanted to become fitter and stronger again. After around five months of working together Shereen made the decision that she felt confident to start training herself. I helped her drop some body fat, improved her strength and fitness to levels she'd not had in years. But most of all I think the sessions helped to give her that spark for life back again. It was a pleasure to train and get to know Shereen.
Elise wanted to get fit and drop some body fat. We train using constantly varied, high intensity, functional movement meaning she has not only started to change shape but has also become so much fitter and stronger than ever before. These improvements have transferred over to her Cheer training and she can run again after years of shin splints.
"I took up Gemma's opening "kick start" offer in January 2019- I had been working with her for a few months before that and had made some progress but, for reasons entirely down to me, was coasting a bit by Christmas. I needed a little something to really help me focus, and the kick start definitely did the job! Weekly sessions helped me get into a routine and a mindset that are still firmly in place several weeks later, and I'm really seeing the results now. Gemma devises varied sessions with just the right amount of challenge, which keeps it interesting, and they are a highlight of my week. The nutrition review was also really useful, and her suggestions helped me make some tweaks that have become good habits. Sports massage was a great addition to the kick start, and is also something I'll continue periodically. If you'd asked me last year I wouldn't have said I was the sort of person to make use of a PT, especially at a less commercial gym (CrossFit), but that's changed now. I'd highly recommend Gemma, and the kick start particularly, for anyone who's looking to make a change to their weight or fitness."
"Thank you so much for your amazing support and encouragement in helping me get back to shape after my accident. You gave me just the right balance between pushing me hard but also understanding when I couldn't always do things! I'll always recommend you, and when I can I'll come and have a massage!"
"Gemma is a massage QUEEN! She’s so knowledgeable, professional but oh so welcoming. I know I’m always in safe hands and the effects post massage are incredible. I go every 3 weeks and receive the same high standard every single time. Totally recommend Gemma"🙌🏼
"I have had several massages with Gemma as has my wife and Mum can not recommend highly enough. Gemma squeezed my mum in for an appointment due to an injury and she was miles better after! I have also noticed a big difference in my movement 100% recommend"
"Gemma massaged me earlier this week, and yes, some of it was slightly uncomfortable but it soon passes and I can say it was well worth it. My back, shoulders and neck are less tight and I feel great and have booked another. Don't let age etc put you off, I am a less than shapely 69 year old."
"Would highly recommend Gemma, so pleased I found her, as it's not easy to find someone for a decent deep tissue sports massage. Thank you Gemma!"
"Thank you for introducing me to a new sport in life, from Russia with love"
"Another fantastic session by Gemma, every time it’s different as Gemma knows I like to change it up. The sessions are fun yet hard work, I am normally a complete sweaty mess after, I get trained so so hard yet with the fun included. Gemma is so professional in what she does but also someone who I find my self chatting to like a friend, I would highly recommend this woman to anyone!"
