Hi, I’m Ray

I'm a female Personal Trainer in Manchester working with everyday people through training and nutrition programmes.

Eating right, training right and looking after our mental wellbeing can seem like a big job - who’s got the time?! Especially when you’re not sure where to start.

Through a complete, holistic approach focussing on habits, nutrition, training and progression, I’m there every step of the way. This isn’t just a few training sessions per week, it can be a complete lifestyle change, so that you can get the most out of your kick-ass body and mind. 

I have my own studio over at Pollard Yard which is a welcoming, inclusive and private space for us to train, free from the intimidation and ego of the average gym environment.

Female Personal Trainer and Nutrition COACH

A bit about me: I’m constantly dancing (if you can call it that!) and sometimes I’m so enthusiastic that some people assume I’m being sarcastic!

I’m direct, driven and will push you but don’t worry, you’ll still be able to walk the next day 😉

I am a qualified Personal Trainer, Breathwork Instructor, Level 4 RSPH Nutrition Advisor and the Head Transformation Coach at Urban Reform. I’m also listed as one of the best personal trainers in Manchester.

I get how hard making changes to your lifestyle and eating habits can be. So we’re not going to make any super drastic changes that a) you’re going to hate and b) you won’t be able to stick to long term.

I want to get you to a place that you are proud of, confident you can move forward maintaining a happy, thriving version of you – the real you!!
