To be a personal trainer was always a burning ambition of Mary’s and when she qualified with the YMCA in 2005, she couldn’t wait to get out there and share her newly learned skills. Over the years she has gained a wealth of experience and still continues to keep herself updated with all the latest news from the health and fitness industry so that she’s able to pass on new skills and information to clients.
Each one of us is unique! Mary likes the fact that her clients come from all walks of life; they are varied, interesting and range in ages from 5 to 88! Each one is a challenge and that is exactly what she loves about her job. She has helped many fulfil their goals and ambitions. The ultimate satisfaction for her is reaching that particular goal with the client who at the beginning couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel or watching someone grow in confidence when their self-esteem was rock bottom!
Mary is a twice diagnosed breast cancer survivor but she has never let this hold her back. She regularly inspires others by delivering talks about her experience and how exercise has helped her regain and retain her fitness. She has appeared in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and works very closely with breast cancer charities to raise funds and awareness. She has also written articles for their publications. In the summer of 2016, Mary was selected to feature in Breast Cancer Now’s #TheLastOne advert. It is incredibly moving and powerful – see it via this link:
Most recently Mary was voted Inspirational Trainer of Winter 2015 by FitPro magazine and as a result was a presenter at Fitpro Live in April 2016.
Professionalism comes with her role: she is punctual and reliable, down to earth, approachable and very much a people person, so you will feel at ease as soon as you meet her. She has an abundance of enthusiasm so if motivation and all of the above is what you need then you’ve found the right trainer.
Mary is first aid trained, has up to date insurance and is a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS). As well as being a qualified personal trainer, she also has qualifications in Pilates, Exercise to Music, Children’s Fitness, Breast Cancer Rehabilitation and Ante & Post-natal fitness. All her certificates are available to view.
