About Nikki Carrol | Weight Loss Specialist & Personal Trainer *
I specialise in working with complete beginners to exercise, clients suffering from Obesity and or Type 2 diabetes and those who just hate the thought of exercise and really struggle to eat well. In addition to the standard PT qualification held by all PTs, I also hold the Level 4 Certificate in Exercise and Nutritional Interventions for Obesity & Diabetes.
I also hold the GP Exercise Referral qualification which means I am specifically qualified to work with clients who may be suffering from conditions that make training a little more complicated. I also hold the Natal Exercise programme Design certificate so mums to be or new mums are safe in my hands.
I am also a diet and nutrition adviser so can provide information and support about most dietary issues.
I am sports massage therapist and so have a truly detailed and deep understanding of the human body and how we move. Finally, I also work as a tutor to new personal trainers and so train, assess and qualify new PTs, so I completely understand my craft.
Hi, my name is Nikki . I LOVE FOOD, I am obsessed with all things FITNESS and sharing that love and obsession with my clients, is my passion.
My mission is to ensure that every one of my clients reaches his or her goals and understands how to sustain their new healthy life.
Throughout my life I have always struggled with my weight, even as a child my mother would say I had "big bones".
As I got older, I became obsessed with my weight, trying one extreme diet or slimming club after another. I always managed to lose the weight, but always managed to put it back on again once left to my own devices.
I also found myself dependent on food, using it as a tool to alter my moods. If I was feeling sad, food was my comfort; if I was mad, it calmed me down; if I was lonely, food was my friend. Sound familiar?
Around 10 years ago I finally decided that something had to change and I needed to do things differently. Rather than yoyo dieting and participating in gym classes that I didn't enjoy, I knew I needed to look deeper into my emotional behaviour and find out what was really causing me to fail. With help, I came up with a plan that worked for me, a plan that included not only nutrition and exercise but also a re-education of what my mind, body and soul was in need of.
Today I'm a 40 something year old who demonstrates that it's never too late to make changes and start the journey to a healthier life.
I eat well, train hard and feel great. I love the way that training makes me feel as well as look. My own life experience has taught me that although diet and exercise are essential to having a healthy life, your state of mind is integral in ensuring that you reach your goal and maintain it.
It is a subject close to my heart, which I am truly passionate about. I am dedicated to helping people reach their own unique health and fitness goals by listening, coaching and together creating bespoke and effective plans encompassing nutrition, exercise and if necessary emotional support and counselling.
In addition to my Level 3 PT qualification I am also qualified to teach group or One-On-One Resistance Training, Kettlebells, Boxercise, Indoor Cycling and to coach Jogging to Running.
In addition I hold the Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral and the Level 4 Certificate in Exercise and Nutritional Interventions for Obesity & Diabetes as well as experience with obesity counselling specifically designed to support those with weight issues or poor body image.
Whether you are looking to totally transform your life, lose weight or improve your health and fitness, I am ready to help you start your journey. I am a professional, effective, supportive and experienced personal trainer. Let me help you to become the happier, healthier, stronger version of you.
