You can train like an athlete & eat like a nutritionist but if you don’t take the time to recover you’ll never progress. Your body needs time to grow and repair & that’s exactly why I became a Sports Massage Therapist, as I know how important it is to improve your physical, physiological and psychological health. This treatment is suitable for both sports people & non-athletes alike and can help with injuries, chronic pain, muscle aches and restricted range of motion in all of us!

Hour

60 minutes of strength & conditioning based training to optimise your performance & be fit for life! Based on high intensity interval training (HIIT), Power Hour is a revolutionary approach to weight loss and fitness that alternates rest and exercise intervals to maximize fat burn in a short amount of time. Research shows that HIIT burns more subcutaneous fat than low-intensity cardio training.

“From when I can remember I always knew I wanted to work in fitness & health. PE was always my favourite subject & I’d spend every spare minute I could be kicking a ball around or going out on bike rides. I have a pure passion for pushing limits & consistently redefining the definition of optimal performance as new science is developed. The human potential excites me & striving to be the best I can be whether in my training or my work is a game I began & will never stop playing.”

I completed my 4th session of Power Hour last night and can not recommend it enough! Kat is full of enthusiasm and drive from the moment you walk in the door – it’s infectious. Every session is totally different and you walk away feeling smug for days! Be prepared to put in the effort for 60mins and you will wonder why you hadn’t started before! Thanks always Kat ?

I started Power Hour 3 weeks ago having not done exercise for a long time and concerned it would be out of my depth. But I was wrong, the power hours are pushing yourself to YOUR MAX, no one else’s and each week you see that max improve! Once you’re through the door Kat keeps you going!
Kat keeps you motivated throughout the workout, full of knowledge and has the time to explain each exercise! Would recommend every time ?

I’ve been working with Kat for a few months now and it’s been an absolute pleasure (albeit very tough). She has pushed me well beyond my original limits, but does so in a fun and always encouraging manner. I’ve never had a dull PT session, and it’s different every week. She really cares about getting the best out of you and will explain why you’re doing certain movements and the benefits behind them.
I also have a monthly sports massage which always leaves me feeling recharged and reenergised.
Kat is a little pocket rocket who makes working out fun. If you want to be pushed hard, in a fun and dynamic way, Kat is the person to call. You won’t regret it!

I would highly recommend Kat as a professional, skilled and experienced personal trainer. This is supported by her sports massage service and expertise with injury management.
My sessions with Kat have been brilliant and I am now feeling a lot more confident about my training. Kat’s motivation is infectious, you will be challenged and surprised with what you can do. Kat is patient; she has taught me how to lift properly and will explain what each exercise or piece of equipment actually does.
The studio is very convenient with free parking and good facilities. It is a relaxed, friendly environment and a place where you can focus.
Kat will work with you on your personal goals, creating bespoke plans for you. Kat gives you her full attention and cares about your wellbeing. Sometimes a gym session may be better substituted for a sports massage and that’s perfectly fine at her adaptable studio.
Give it a go, you will leave feeling motivated and the results will show. I look forward to seeing Kat’s business continue to grow.

**Highly recommended!!!**
Facilities – spot on! Love it. Fantastic massage from Kat, quality was 10/10. Discussed before hand exactly what I need and main areas of muscle soreness to focus on. She checked throughout to see if I wasn’t in too much pain.
Extremely professional throughout.
Given Kat has a brilliant sport back ground and worked with a professional football club, she can be even more specific and has a great understand of what it is you need from the treatment.
Book in people!!!

An expert in her field Kat shows in depth knowledge and skills and uses this to really help you to your fitness goals. I highly recommend Kat to anybody what ever your main sport or fitness focus is. I love my PT sessions and am surprised that every week Kat has thought of something new to push and challenge me! As a runner supplementing my overall fitness, I have found a new level of core strength I have never had before training with Kat.

Can’t thank KP enough. Her expertise, professionalism and desire to succeed has given me the foundation to change my life. I am now leaner, fitter, healthier and armed with the tools and education to continue on this path. 14 weeks in, 2 stone down, and enjoying PT more and more!

Just did my first ever power hour and the whole way home I was trying to figure out why Kat is SO good…Positivity, encouragement, she has the ability to absorb any self doubt you might have.
and the little snippets of science just to get your 🧠 thinking and begin to change your mental attitude to fitness/health.
The girl has a gift, loved it!

I spent many months stalking Kats Facebook page watching everyone’s journeys and wanting to join in but felt I was to fat and unfit and would be embarrassed amongst the fit individuals that Kat had on her books. How far from the truth it was. I finally plucked up the courage and messaged Kat who reassured me all would be fine and I found myself booked on to my first power hour…the result is I love them…everyone is on their own journey and nobody takes any notice if you are slower or you use a lower weight. Kat is so encouraging, each week is different, never know what you are walking in to do. It has encouraged me to do more at my gym, given me options rather than the treadmill and I know I will not be running a marathon any time soon but I am pleased with my own progress and I am feeling so much better about myself. Do I still hate burpees…yes…but will I let them defeat me like I would have done 6 weeks ago no! Thank you Kat and all the power hour members who each week give me the encouragement to get it done!

I had been contemplating attending Power Hour for quite a while…. now I ask myself why I left it so long!!??
A warm first welcome from Kat was lovely.
Kat is very knowledgeable and really knows her stuff… every session leaves your body guessing what’s next. I love the combination of exercises and the use of weights.
You work to your own ability and Kat has a way to keep you pushing yourself that little more… and that is where you benefit! You come away feeling that you’ve achieved so much in the space of that hour.
My second power hour session in last week and have booked and paid for a further 3 weeks.
Thanks Kat 😊

I attended Power Hour for the first time last week and absolutely loved it. As an experienced fitness professional in what feels like a former life, I’d really lost my way and have struggled to find someone or something to help me get back on track. I’ve been to other classes with poor instruction, lack of values and gimmicks that seem focused on making money that I thought I would never find my own motivation again because I needed some guidance that I could trust. Kat is a game changer, she is just what I need- well thought out session, excellent instruction, attention paid to the mental side of things and you know she is fully invested in her approach. I am excited to rebuild my fitness with her and find my cool again :).
