First of all I am real person - a mother of two plus 3 dogs and 2 guinea pigs with first hand knowledge of what it is like to lead a busy life. Over the years I have been many shapes and sizes. When I finally stopped trying to be perfect, I maintained my weight and havenʼt looked back. I have learnt how to fit exercise in around my daily routine - even when cooking the dinner!
I donʼt believe in dieting, excessive amounts of exercise or obsessive approaches to health and fitness.
My mantra is to do what you can, when you can and to feel good about what you have managed to achieve - above all exercise should be fun and not guilt ridden!
My career in the fitness industry has given me a broad range of qualifications, depth of knowledge and hands-on experience at all levels across the health, fitness and lifestyle spectrum.
After starting out as a teenage athlete my early career included working in Sports Development for Gateshead authority where I was invoIved in making sports available to the wider community.
Since then I’ve trained celebrities, sports personalities and large corporate groups as well as individuals to whom I’ve offered a unique boutique style service. I’ve appeared frequently in the media, helped develop video and console games, written two fitness books and lectured at numerous events. I’m also a fitness brand ambassador for some of the world’s leading companies
I am a fully qualified and insured Personal Trainer. Please contact Kate Thompson for a full CV
