After meeting Jodie at the Health & Me retreat weekend I decided to take Jodie up on her free coffee and consultation to discuss a nutrition plan and massage package. I had been attending bootcamp sessions but needed an extra dimension to achieve my overall weight and fitness goal. The plan was in two parts , a complete nutrition plan and an eight week sports massage course for my legs as they were my main weakness. After completing the sports massage my running has improved dramatically, I feel better and more confident as a person and this is due to the nutritional program Jodie has put together for me. I am now confident I am on my way to achieving my fitness goals and enjoying a better lifestyle. I can’t stress enough the encouragement that Jodie exudes in everything she does and this passes to all her clients. Thanks Jodie I owe you one!
I met Jodie for a coffee and a chat, she was so friendly and I instantly felt at ease and gave me the confidence that I could actual start to work towards the goals I had.
After the chat, I decided to sign up for the beach body package!
Jodie tailored a food plan, which was great as I was able to list the food I liked and didn’t like and Jodie worked with this. This also included a few snacks which were easy and all food was very tasty.
After 6 weeks i shocked to see how much progress I had made!
I could not recommend Jodie enough; she is a brilliant coach and also there to give you the extra push when you need one. She has given me all the support I needed to reach my goal!
I met Jodie, in passing, whilst competing in the Herefordshire XC Running League!
I knew Jodie knew her stuff though as she was invited to our running club to talk us through pre event nutrition and race day preparation….
What I didn’t realise was that was just one of the strings in her bow!
A friend who was joining the British Army had signed up for 10 sessions of PT instruction from Jodie and was reaping the benefits, before starting basic training.
Her running had improved massively so I finally decided to take Jodie up on her coffee and consultation!
In the gym we concentrated on re activating my ‘runners lazy muscles’, encouraging them ALL to fire, not just the big muscle groups and also on my core and upper body strength – love those Russian Twists and Kettle Bells!
In the Kitchen Jodie had me cooking some really tasty dishes and the great thing was that the plan was one that encompassed my whole family, not just me, so it was easy to stick to.
Jodie is easy to talk to, explains everything she asks you to do and helps overcome any concerns and most importantly, supports you through the whole process and makes it FUN!
With my lazy running muscles now firing and my nutrition nailed I am achieving awesome things in my ultra run races! With the tools given to me by Impact Fitness I have made my body, performance and mind fitter, faster and stronger!
The journey has begun and I’m in it for the long haul…. Thanks Jodie!
Before training with Jodie I had very low self esteem and was on and off depressed with my weight and life in general, She made me feel like I had someone to talk to the whole time at the gym and away from the gym..
After providing me with a training plan and nutrition plan I decided to stick with it and actually started seeing some major results in my body including weight loss and becoming leaner/stronger, which in turn made me feel a lot more confident and happy!
I would recommend Jodie to anyone! She is super nice and always has her clients best interests at heart!
My goal was to improve my mental health and confidence in my body and get back into the rugby and boxing that I had previously loved.
I met Jodie for a coffee and a chat, Jodie was really friendly and non-judgemental and gave me a boost of confidence that this was possible!
After keeping a food diary and realising I really did only survive on pizza, sausage roles and energy drink I could see that my low mood and energy levels were down to lack of wholesome healthy food in my diet.
Jodie tailored a nutrition plan based on foods I actually like, after the first week I found I felt like I was eating more than before and I felt so much better about myself, I am no longer relying on energy drinks to get through the day.
I would definitely recommend investing in your nutritional health. Thanks to support from Jodie at Impact Fitness I feel a lot happier about myself and have used the tools she has given me to really changed my life around.
Before I met Jodie I had very low confidence and I hated what I saw in the mirror.
I tried every diet under the sun on and off for 10 years, from SlimmingWorld to just not eating at all. I felt guilty over food and found exercise terrifying, I felt like I wouldn’t belong at a gym.
I met Jodie at a spin class we both attended encouraging when all I wanted to do was get of the bike and collapse on the floor.
I knew then I had found the person to support me in my journey!
I was so nervous walking into the gym but Jodie helped me feel so comfortable and helped me see I totally fitted in.
The food plan is fab, full of great food and its tailored to what I like and what is easy to do with working and my family.
She is so easy to talk to and understands where I am coming from and not judgemental in any way. She gives me a kick up the bum when I need it and boosts my confidence when I am feeling low.
My overall fitness has really improved, I can feel mussel definition and my ability to work harder for long is so much better, but also she has helped my mental health so much with her positive attitude and understanding.
Jodie now helps the whole family offering sports massage to my partner Chris and even my 3 year old who enjoys joining in with training and sports massage (he finds her hilarious) !
I couldn’t recommend Jodie enough IMPACTFITNESS has helped me and support me to change my life!
I started training with Impact Fitness 2 years ago after years of trying (and failing) to lose weight. I would set myself massive exercise goals and then when I couldn’t achieve them instantly I’d be disheartened and give up. I’d also set a strict diet plan and then get bored after a couple of days so wouldn’t continue. Training with Jodie has given me the structure and accountability to be consistent with my training. Lifting weights makes me feel strong both physically and mentally and Jodie makes each session varied and fun! My nutrition plan is full of variety and allows me to be flexible when I need to be which again helps with consistency. With Jodie’s guidance and support I went from being barely able to run 5k, to this year running the London Marathon. Without Jodie I’d had given up after the first week after probably trying to run 20 miles in one go! Impact Fitness has helped to change my life – I am much more healthier and happier than ever!
Having been a gym member for a few years with the primary goal of putting on muscle I realised that I had come to a point where the weight I had gained was not all lean!
Having spoken to Jodie she mentioned her Kick Start program which sounded like it would fit my short term goal of looking better for an upcoming holiday.
After following a nutrition plan written by Jodie along with the training sessions that had been set for me I went on holiday feeling like I had really achieved something! Jodie took all the aspects of becoming fitter and healthier that I found confusing or difficult (mainly diet for me) and not only made them easy to follow but also educated me in the process.
Jodie’s kick start program was perfect for me and I can now go forward with the tools that I have been given to live a healthier life and enjoy the results that hard work brings! I would recommend Jodie to anyone looking to achieve a goal and I will certainly be using her again in the future to reach new targets!
Both Simon and I have had health issues in our 50’s , Simon has type 2 diabetes and arteriosclerosis and I have raised blood pressure.
We had been battling to get fitter and had tried many different forms of exercise and diet with not much effect. We both wanted to lose weight and become stronger.
We first met Jodie in October 2016 when attending one of her kettle bell classes which we enjoyed so we decided to have 10 joint coaching sessions with her. These went well so we continued to work with her for the next 20 months.
I personally did not have the confidence to work with weights or go to a gym as I found it intimidating, so working with Jodie on personal sessions really helped my confidence.
Because Jodie took things at my pace and introduced different exercises slowly I became more confident in my ability.
I became stronger and felt confident lifting weights, my mobility improved, and I found I could do everyday things a lot easier.
My weight decreased and my blood pressure stabilised, my doctor was pleased to see I was improving, also my cholesterol started to go down which was an added bonus.
I found Jodie very supportive especially when I felt I couldn’t do the exercise or I didn’t want to challenge myself, and because of that support and guidance I have achieved much more than I ever thought possible.
Simon on the other hand had trained when he was younger and was familiar with weight training, he however wanted to challenge himself all the time which in the past led to frustrating injuries and not being able to train. With Jodie’s support he became more aware of how to pace his improvement so that he wasn’t held back with injuries. He wanted to become stronger and lose weight which would then help stabilise his blood sugars and so control his type2 diabetes more efficiently. The benefit of his training meant his weight decreased and he felt stronger whilst increasing his muscle mass.
We both benefited mentally as well because we discovered how exercise can improve your outlook and give you a positive lift. We enjoy walking and are now able to complete challenging walks such as Pen y Fan and the Skirrid mountains that previously would have been above our fitness level.
We would like to thank Jodie for all her support and knowledge and for being a very important part of our fitness journey.
