About us

Who are we?

We are a couple, born in the early 1960s, who keep healthy and fit through exercise, healthy eating, and having a positive outlook on life.


I am a 61-year young British Natural Bodybuilding Champion, qualified teacher (CertEd), and Certified Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (NLP).


I have come from a disciplined background, serving in the Royal Navy and RAF. After leaving the military I served as a Police officer and then as a Prison officer, retiring at 55.

I have always had a passion for exercise and health. I have been training since 1979 and competing as a natural bodybuilder since 1982.

In 1987 I discovered the High-Intensity system of training. After only one year of training the HIT way, I won the local Mr. Doncaster, the Novice Central Britain, and the Novice Britain Final.


Over the years I have adapted and developed my own HIT system, which I call Adaptive Resistance Training (ART).

In 2022 I became the Over 60 Natural Bodybuilding British Champion at the age of 61.



I am a mother of 5 and a grandmother too. I met Russell, initially in the early 1990s, when our children went to the same school, together. We met quite by chance again in 2015 and have been together since.


I started training in 2016, after recovering from a heart attack. Russell introduced me to the gym with a view to improving my health. After a few months, I found a passion for exercising and looking young and healthy.


My new passion led me to do something bold. To stand on a stage in front of hundreds of people, in nothing more than a bikini. I competed, for the very first time, in 2018 at the age of 55, winning the best transformation award. The following year I placed 4th in the Britain Finals in the over 40 Toned Fitness Class.  I have transformed, not only my body, my outlook on life. I have more energy and zest for life and I plan. to compete again and take the British Championship title in 2023 at the age of 60.

What makes us different?

We are passionate about health, fitness, and positivity. We have over 40 years of experience and knowledge of exercise, training, and fitness. 


We are a couple who have a passion for health and fitness, have gone through our own transformation process, and want to help others to do the same.

We have a tried and tested system that we know will work for everyone as it has for us and others we have coached.

We have written a book on our training system, which has sold worldwide,  helping others achieve their full potential.

Our mission is to provide you with the highest quality Online Coaching service. We care and want to see our services help you create a healthier, better quality of life for yourself and transform both your body and mind in the quickest and easiest way.

We would love to hear from you and get you on the road to a healthier future.
