Meet the Gainz Coaches
Hi! I'm Laura
My passion lies in showing women that nutrition doesn't have to be complicated.
When people ask me what I do I say "I teach people how to eat".
Sounds a bit strange, but so many of us get stuck in the diet world that we've forgotten what "normal" eating looks like!
If you're looking for a quick fix, I'm not the coach for you - anyone can get someone to drop weight by eliminating carbs & putting in hours of cardio but in my mind, if a client can't maintain those changes long term then my plan has failed them. I want to show you how you can tweak your current lifestyle to get the body that helps you look & feel your best. No fads, no quick fixes. Just educated, sensible solutions to the problems that have caused you to "fail" at your diet in the past.
If you're sick of being on & off of diets & are ready to make a long-lasting transformation then join my team today.
I was a slave to the scale from the age of 15.
I tried every diet going & I hated the way I looked which led to a 10 year battle with binge eating & overly restricting. I decided enough was enough. If I was going to get out of this rut I needed to learn, stop the fads, & stop wasting time & money on diets that were leaving me confused & feeling like I was a failure.
I left my senior management job within General Practice & went on to requalify as a Nutritionist & Personal Trainer.
Now at the age of 35 I'm free of the yo-yo diet cycle & as a result am in the best shape of my life & get the absolute pleasure of sharing my education with other women all over the world to help them do the same.
In the 10 years I've been doing this job I've helped hundreds of women achieve their goals & improve not only their body but their relationship with food. This is key in making sure you can maintain those changes for life. It just takes knowledge, patience & the willingness to make a little effort each day.
My motto - Appreciate the body you're in whilst working for the body you want!
If you're ready to start that journey & see changes for good then stop wasting time & start today.
Hi! I'm Lucy
For many years I was unhappy with how I looked and how I felt. I tried every fad diet out there in the hope of changing myself. I starved myself and exercised because I wanted to lose weight and hated every moment of it. Needless to say I only kept this up for a couple of weeks at a time, then quit, feeling more miserable and lost each time.
One day I decided that I was done hating my body. That I didn’t want to ever feel that bad about myself again. I learnt about nutrition. I started fuelling my body properly, eating the foods that made me feel good. I tried resistance training. I was hooked. I fell in love with discovering the amazing things my body was capable of. This new found passion lead me to a career in Personal Training and Nutrition - something I once thought was just a pipe dream!
I believe that good coaching starts with compassion. It is not good enough to simply tell someone to “do more” or that they “just don’t want it enough”. Lifestyle change takes time, but with the right knowledge, guidance and understanding it is possible to make sustainable and healthy changes that will last a lifetime.
I never thought I’d get to a stage in my life where I can wholeheartedly and confidently say I love and appreciate my body and everything it does for me. And even better, I love that every day I get the chance to help other women feel that way about themselves too.
I originally joined the GirlGainz team as a client of Laura’s & now I’m proud to be helping other women in their journey to finding their happy body!
