Here’s what some of my lovely clients have had to say.

I met Melody through a women's business group and realised she needed help at her house with blinds and drapes. I designed some to integrate the existing interior. I decided to see if she could help me with some of my injuries so employed her as a Personal trainer. This changed my life and now we are great friends and train together! Melody is an expert and always gives 100% in anything she does and a great inspiration! I highly recommend her as a Personal Trainer ...!

“Some years ago I fell off a pushbike and fractured four vertebrae. The timing for this couldn’t have been worse because in a couple of months I had a trip to the UK and Europe planned and my flights were already booked and paid for. Melody was recommended to me by a mutual friend (Serena). Melody showed me how to strengthen my back muscles carefully while my injuries healed to prepare me for the trip ahead. She also made sure that I knew key stretches and exercises that I could use while I was travelling.

I am pleased to say that I had a wonderful time on my trip and Melody’s expertise was a major contributing factor. Following the trip I’ve worked with Melody to improve my posture and movement. For example, the way I walked, i.e. favouring various parts of my body. She began by observing me after walking behind me, and then re-taught me how to walk. We've gone from there and I simply wouldn't be without her. She keeps in touch regularly, even though we live many miles apart. She is always there for advice and adjustments to my exercise plan if I need it. I've also seen her take an exercise class and it is quite a wonder to see. To be in a relationship of both personal training and NLP support is something I would not want to do without. I would recommend her to anybody, at any age.”

“After years of being totally unfit, not even able to walk up a hill without puffing, joining several gyms and always giving up after 3 or 4 sessions Melody was recommended to me as a personal trainer. What a transformation! I really looked forward to our training sessions. I was positively encouraged, worked hard, learned all about how to train without risking injury, got fit and developed a lifelong love of it! We did challenges and adventures, climbing Rangitoto and doing a half marathon. Things I'd never dreamed I could achieve. Melody is passionate and enthusiastic about her clients and will find a way, whatever it takes, to help you, both with physical problems and mental challenges. For example, I suffered unusual muscle pains whilst climbing, Melody taught me the correct posture and I haven't had problems since.”

“Since working with Melody I feel fitter, stronger and more importantly healthier. My blood pressure is down and I find her voice guiding me even when she’s not there. With close to four decades of experience and practise in the fitness industry I know that with Melody I’m in great hands. The programme I’m on is my very own, individually designed, and continually adjusted to help me achieve what I want and what I need – a fitter, healthier, more sustainable me. I’ve never known any fitness professional as professional and well-practised as Melody.”

“I love Melody's approach to personal training. Suffering neck and shoulder discomfort I sought Melody's help. She explored my symptoms, analysed my posture and talked me through possible causes. She provided me with a personalised plan of exercises with explanations of what they aimed to achieve and she specifically designed my programme around my lifestyle. After only a few weeks I have noticed significant improvement. I'm in less discomfort and I'm sleeping better. Best of all her programme is resetting my natural posture and will benefit me for years to come.”

“Melody is an exceptional personal trainer. I've never met another fitness professional with her level of skill in spotting the cause of discomfort and teaching people how to quickly and effectively eliminate it. Since training with Melody, aches and pains I had previously had for years are now consigned to the past and I am in the best shape I've been for a long time. Every training session is enjoyable in a great environment and I look forward to working with Melody for years to come.”
