About
(*Also currently working out of Calverton Leisure Centre and Redhill Leisure Centre.)

I have always been truly passionate about an active and healthy lifestyle. Ever since I was young I strived for personal development by challenging myself physically in a variety of activities over the years.

Now as an adult I have finally come to a stage where I can look at fitness not only as a passion but as a profession as well. I am a natural motivator and, most importantly, I believe I can find the tailored solution specific to your needs; general health condition, weight loss, confidence boost and so much more!

Whether you are seeking the missing parts of your work/life balance, or trying to implement changes in anything from your diet to your overall lifestyle, together we can make it happen. Contact me if you’re ready to start your journey to a better life you desire and deserve!

I first contacted Nora at the beginning of 2024. I have been reading a lot recently about how strength training is the key to getting fitter and staying healthier longer, especially as we get older.

My fitness goals were to go into my 60’s feeling fitter, stronger and healthier.

I have never done strength training before, or worked with a Personal Trainer, so I had no idea what to expect! When I first met Nora, I was immediately impressed by her energy and enthusiasm. She is just so positive, and over the weeks she has pushed me outside my comfort zone, in ways that I could never have expected! She has taught me so much, and encouraged me to do exercises I never thought I was capable of doing. She is also so much fun.

I am now just over 3 months into my training, and I am already feeling fitter, stronger and healthier. I am also amazed at how quickly working out has affected me mentally! I feel so much happier, balanced and alive.

Thank you so much Nora Xxx

I’ve been training with Nora for a few months now and she’s an amazing trainer!
The sessions with her are both fun and productive. The exercises and workouts are challenging and no two sessions are ever alike.
I feel my body changing and becoming stronger thanks to her training.
Definitely recommend!

I've been recovering from ankle surgery and related issues and Nora has really helped my recovery and building up my strength... physical and mental. She understands what I'm capable of and pushes me to do things I wouldn't have thought I could do. She's always positive, encouraging and her support in the last six months has been simply amazing.
She's so knowledgeable and always takes time with questions I have and explaining exercises and what they do to help different parts of the body. No workout session is ever the same and she's made going to the gym thoroughly enjoyable.
Thank you so much for everything you've done for me and I'm looking forward to a lot more sessions with you!

Nora has been my personal trainer for several months. I have weekly or bi-weekly sessions with her. Nora is an amazing personal trainer. She developed training programme for me that meets my personal health and wellbeing needs. She pushes me to meet my health goals and I am so grateful for that. After each session, I feel exhausted (in a good way :D) but feel fresh and happy. I highly recommend hiring Nora as your personal trainer.

Myself and my husband train with Nora. She is a fantastic teacher and personal trainer, supportive and encouraging. One of the many great things about Nora is she works with you at your level with fun and humour and doesn’t let injuries or health issues hold you back. Whether Pilates classes or personal training I highly recommend her, whatever your level of fitness I wouldn’t let it stop you from trying the amazing Nora.

I've worked with Nora for about 6 weeks now, and all ready I feel and see a difference, Nora spoke to me about what exercise and diet would suit me to receive good results for what I wanted to achieve, I've a very self doubter and have slight anxiety, Nora has made me feel so good about myself she puts me at ease, we have a laugh, I can talk to her about any worries I have about my weight, she pushes me enough when I feel I can't she makes me feel I can, I always feel good after my workout, she's even made me want to do workout at home and keep to a tight schedule diet wise, I'm looking forward to seeing the results , I would highly recommend Nora,

Nora's Pilates class helps me get back in shape. She challenges and pushes all abilities, encourages and makes me laugh. I'm not too fond of sports - I treat them like brushing one's teeth, something that must be done for one's health - but Nora makes it an enjoyable experience.

What can I say about the amazing Nora but just to sum up. She is absolutely fantastic.

She makes me feel good. Look good. She’s not judge mental. She’s so empowering. She’s so encouraging.

I used to be stiff as an ironing board. And because of Dora. I am now Bendy like a elastic band lol 😂

She has stopped my backache & my neck ache. I have a very stressful job with having to bend over, doing beauty, & aesthetics and I’ve been in severe pain for years

But thanx to Nora. I am in no pain whatsoever. She is absolutely amazing. Highly recommend her.

I honestly don’t know what I would do without her in my life

Somehow, Nora is able to make Pilates look effortless, whilst coaxing us to push ourselves that little bit further. Her classes are varied, with all abilities catered for, showing us different ways to do the exercises to different levels. Classes are as challenging as you want it to be but always fun and adaptable. I would recommend everyone to give Nora’s Pilates class a try.

I have done Pilates classes with Nora for about 9 months. She is a very good teacher with a lovely personality & she keen to encourage everyone to challenge themselves, while acknowledging individual’s different fitness levels and abilities .
Her style is to vary exercises each week, ensuring everyone remains engaged. Highly recommended

Nora has been absolutely fantastic since the first moment of our first session. She knows (and continues to learn) what I am capable of, which allows her to push me towards my goals in the most encouraging and supportive ways possible, while still maintaining an energy of fun and enthusiasm throughout every session which is incredibly infectious. I find myself genuinely looking forward to every session we have booked in, wondering which machines or ‘cheeky’ exercises we will try next.

I have found Nora to be incredibly knowledgable, capable, confident, and adaptable when it comes to fitness. If for whatever reason an exercise isn’t working, she always has 3 more variations and alternatives up her sleeve at any moment to really adapt the training to what I need it to be, but also to what I am realistically capable of.

An all-round fantastic trainer and a fabulous person!

I’ve loved my personal training sessions with Nora. Nora pushes me, supports me and encourages me to work hard. Nora designs my personal training session to meet my needs and capability. Not only has Nora helped me physically, she has also massively helped with my self esteem. When I first started with Nora, my self esteem was particularly low but has been improving more and more! Thanks Nora

Nora has been brilliant for me both physically and mentally.
She is a rare combination of great personality and very competent trainer. She is very resourceful, finding just the right mix of exercises to challenge you without being too difficult. She always has a big smile and is constantly monitoring my technique and will adjust the routine as appropriate. We have a great rapport and she even laughs at my jokes!. Her sessions have been agreat motivation for me since my wife passed away. I can highly recommend Nora as a first class trainer.

I have been working with Nora for 6 weeks now. I'm really enjoying our sessions. Nora is challenging me and pushing me to be fitter. She is lovely to be around, very skilled in her field and easy going.
Every session is different, which is great as I get fed up of the same workouts. Nora listens to me and adapts the training if necessary.
I would highly recommend Nora and I look forward to our future PT sessions!

Nora has been a fabulous personal trainer over the last few months. I am an older lady with a hip injury and only after a few weeks of doing the right exercises the pain began to subside. I am now pain free.
Nora applies the right exercises to suit your ability and strength, she is very caring and always makes me laugh. I would definitely recommend Nora.

I’m over 65 and had no confidence to join a class. I have osteo arthritis with two hip replacements. Initially my goal was to be able to get up from the floor unaided. I’d had several falls and lost confidence. Unbelievably with Nora I achieved this goal in three weeks but I have become hooked on improving my stability, flexibility, balance, strength and fitness. Alongside the training sessions I have also lost 3..5 stone! I am moving better now and have more flexibility than I had twenty years ago. Nora is none judgemental. Every session is different with new activities, exercises and challenges! I certainly recommend Nora whatever your fitness goals are. Nora has the experience and expertise to tailor a program to suit individual needs. She has been instrumental in my fitness journey that will enable me to do so much more in my life! Training with Nora is an investment in yourself! Highly recommended.

Nora is a pleasure to work with. She’s attentive, focused, and passionate, something that's infectious and ends up rubbing off on you.

I finally started seeing fitness results after working out on my own for a long time. I loved that she came to every workout telling me what we would be working on that day, and that every workout was different.
Seen amazing results after only a few weeks, feel fitter and stronger.
She knew when to push me further and when I had reached my limit.

Fit or unfit I encourage everyone to have the experience of investing in their health. Health Lessons learned and implemented for life.
Can’t wait to train with you again:)

Having worked with many PTIs over the years I can happily say Nora is right up there with the best of them. I have some health issues but Nora took the time to listen to my needs and create a constantly evolving fitness plan around them, making every session fun and fulfilling with lots of variation and hard work. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
