Online coaching is like having a personal trainer in your pocket. Enjoy better results for your time and effort by having an expert take care of all the complicated stuff, and receive friendly support via your mobile, tablet, or desktop whenever you need it.

Unlimited workouts designed just for you, your goals, and your schedule.

Specific and manageable advice on how to eat in a way that suits you.

What does Online Coaching do?

Online coaching is all about giving you clarity and direction on your health and fitness goals.

It's essential that you have measurable, realistic goals set, and understanding why those goals are meaningful to you is the key to keeping you motivated.

I create flexible exercise plans to fit around your lifestyle that make the best possible use of your time and energy. Your personal programme will take into account your current fitness level, the equipment you have available, and will help you build healthy lifestyle and nutrition habits.

My goal is to help you feel truly confident and enjoy working out. I'll be on hand to answer questions and give you feedback whenever you need it.

Step by step strategies to help you build better nutrition habits for life

Someone to listen to your concerns and help you maintain perspective

Fresh ideas for exercises and workouts to keep things varied and interesting

Healthy challenges to keep you progressing over time

Strategies to help you achieve real life results

Online coaching can save you years of time and effort spent wandering around the gym, wondering what to do.

What Is It Like?

Online coaching is a unique, personalised experience. As much as it is methodical and strategic, my approach is holistic. We’ll be focussing on all aspects of your lifestyle, including your mindset. Here's what just a few of my clients have to say about it...

"I started seeing Mel three years ago after a nasty football injury and subsequent knee reconstruction, initially just for rehab but then enjoyed her coaching style and the results that come with it so decided to stick around for general training. We now meet for in-person PT once a week, but I also subscribe to the online PT service to keep me on my toes (with a strong core, of course) in between. Mel programs me sessions to do via True Coach which give me focus and structure when I go to the gym on my own, as well as easily accessible instructional videos which provide guidance for technical queries and make new or newish exercises seem far less intimidating. It's great to know that I'm doing a workout which has been planned specifically with my goals and needs in mind, rather than just the same old weights and exercises. Mel is super responsive in getting back on any feedback I've left on a session via TrueCoach, and the monthly catch up which is part of the online package allows us to discuss current results and goals, and Mel can then tweak the training programme as required. 

Overall the online PT service is great either as an add-on to in-person sessions or a standalone, and gives you the perfect roadmap for great results if you put the work in. Approaching my 40th (eek) birthday I'm definitely in the best shape I've ever been in and excited about the further #gains to come."

- Nick Evans

"I’ve worked with Mel a number of years and feel I get a strong holistic approach. Nutrition, fitness, strengthening and most importantly in recent years recovery and rehabilitation. 
Mel is the perfect balance of knowledgeable, personal-able and professional which in my experience is hard to come by from a coach. I recommend her service without hesitation."

- Earl T

"I’ve really enjoyed working with Mel - I’ve found it to be a positive, friendly and empowering experience. The biggest thing for me is this is the longest stretch of time I’ve managed to work out consistently. As a result, I find myself looking forward to workouts (most days) and I think I may be set for a long term relationship with fitness. Looking back, the chat that I had with Mel before we started (defining your ‘why’, etc) has come in really handy because I still think of it sometimes to get me through a workout or when I don’t feel like going to the gym.

The app is great, I get a good amount of feedback from Mel, she is very knowledgeable about fitness and always thinks through all the information I give, and provides great feedback. My experience with the gym workouts is that I’ve really enjoyed doing new exercises and discovering what I do/don’t like.

Mel’s service helps provide a positive and long term relationship with fitness. There’s so much “hard-coreness” out there and I can imagine there are lots of people who feel they need to go big or go home with fitness. My experience was that I saw results with moderate changes to my life, which I was really happy to do. Her service also keeps people accountable and helps them achieve any goals they may have in mind.

I also want to add that, most significantly, Mel has coached me through the running in a safe and healthy manner. I could never imagine running 12km without fearing that my knee would explode. I’m really, really pleased we’re working through that and making sustainable progress!"

- Deepali P

"I have been working with Mel for nearly 18 months now and I have enjoyed every aspect of this journey so far. From the onset, Mel took onboard the struggles I was facing in terms of my physical health and designed a work-out programme which was both effective and innovative to my training. We review each month to reflect on the progress made as well as discuss any new issues in order to reach the goal of finding the right balance, mentally and physically. I would recommend Mel to others because of her experience and her attention to detail in addressing client's problems / struggles."

- Ayaz A

"I picked Mel as I was struggling with my body image, training and just generally feeling overwhelmed with trying to achieve at everything. I have a busy job and a commute and I was frustrated with my training and was picking up niggles in my shoulder and knee but still wanted to train as it is the only time that I can truly call my own.Because I am busy I often just want to have programming and some guidance that I can fit into my busy schedule, so having Mel programme what I need through TrueCoach (the app we use) is so useful. I can see what workouts are coming up and we work together to programme what I am trying to improve on and also adjust the intensity depending on how I am feeling. It works brilliantly for me and I have made really good strength gains since I have started working with Mel. Mel has also put emphasis on my holistic wellness so we have looked at my lifestyle and training and have prioritised rest and food and that has made the biggest difference to me.I really enjoy our chats and the motivation that Mel gives me along with the gains and confidence I have built. Mel is the right trainer for you if you want someone who is going to look at all aspects of your fitness and personality. Mel will also adapt with you and your goals so if you want flexibility, support and someone who is there to prioritise your health and training than she is who you should work with. I couldn't recommend her enough and it has honestly changed my approach to health and fitness and also my attitude to myself."

What Else Do I Need To Know?

Your decision to get serious about your goals is not one I take lightly. In order to be a true catalyst for your transformation, it’s essential that I keep you accountable, empowering you to take responsibility for your health and wellbeing.

Sometimes that means tough love and hard questions that force you to reflect.

I will challenge you to do better where possible, and pull back when the pressure gets too much. Know that I will be your ultimate advocate, loyal counsel, and dedicated cheerleader on this journey, but I can’t do the work for you.

Prepare not only for all the wins that are to come, but also for the obstacles, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable on any worthwhile journey.

Consistency, resilience, and persistence are required for success when it comes to making long-term positive change. Know that there are no quick-fix formulas or guaranteed results.
