MoodLifter has expertise in both physicial and mental health so can tailor the package according to your aspirations. We all have preferences as to who we are motivated by. Ring for a 20 minute consultation to find out if I am the right fit for you.




How physically fit do I have to be to start personal training?


You do not have to be fit at all. It is a common idea that "I need to get in shape before I can be pushed by a personal trainer" which, when you think about it, doesn't make sense... we need to know how to improve our health and that's where personal training can come in. We can tailor the exerises to be just right to help you improve your fitenss level. If you have a health condition such as hypertension or a heart condition then please speak to your G.P prior to undertaking exercise. If you are fit and active but wish to build on this or enhance your mental health then we will support you in achieving your goals.
