Nutrition Coaching

Hello! Before we jump into talking about personal training or online coaching, I’m keen to ask… how do these statements sit with you?

You’ve never experienced personal training before. You know you don’t want to go to a gym but you’re just not sure what to do for fitness now.

You don’t feel at home or comfortable in your body anymore and it affects your confidence, across all areas of your life.

Feeling stuck in a rut but don’t know how to break the cycle?

You crave guidance and coaching from someone that is invested in you, and that’s ALL of you, not just the fitness.

Looking for a fun and affordable way to get fit and like the idea of small group training with like minded women?

You’re looking for personal training and coaching from someone who provides a thorough assessment of you and your body.

Who also considers your lifestyle and makes recommendations based on your reality, so that you can become healthier and happier.

So… how many of those hit home?

If you’re like 95% of my clients, then most of them did. And that’s OK. Because it means you’re in the right place. Welcome.

My name is Sonya Lovell. As a personal trainer with over 10 years experience (and 50+ years of lived experience), I have a broad background.

Experience with personal training, nutrition, weight management and mindset coaching gives me the depth to coach women how to embrace healthy living, healthy movement and healthy ageing.

I contacted Sonya after reading a piece on her blog; her piece was a revelation to me and lead to a re-evaluation of my expectations and goals. Sonya is the real deal – she is knowledgeable, supportive and FUN! Sonya provides more of a holistic experience which encourages the best from me, and I have never felt like a number with her. Sessions have been tailored to accommodate for existing injuries, and Sonya goes above and beyond by offering to communicate with other health professionals. 

Personally, there have been countless gym memberships and personal training sessions that haven’t lasted, at last I feel like I’m in the right place. Training with Sonya has been the best decision I’ve made in years!

Sonya knows her stuff and pre-plans each workout to be effective and varied every day. She carefully watches over each movement to correct form and ensures we don’t push any pre existing conditions.

I’m now less wobbly, stronger, leaner and more conscious of diet. I’m also feeling proud of myself for turning up twice a week. Sonya pushes me to work at my capacity and I go to sleep at night exhausted and happy.

I know now I will NEVER go back to a traditional gym again!

After a 5+ year break from any sort of formal exercise, I'm so excited to be training with Sonya again.

These small group sessions are perfect for this busy mumma, providing some social interaction along with a personalised approach to each workout, I'm already seeing changes in my body and am feeling stronger!

Sonya's experience and caring approach means you get the best workout for you, each session.

I am one of those people that will make up any excuse not to go to the gym, but after I started personal training with Sonya I actually look forward to exercising - even when I'm sore for a few days after! ;)

Sonya knows her stuff and is extremely personable, and one of the things that really struck a chord with me is how she always starts every session by asking "How are you feeling today?" and really means it.

I couldn't recommend her highly enough, and I love training in her perfect garage gym - not a skinny 20-something in sight!
