After 24 years in the beauty industry with the aim of increasing people’s confidence I felt the next logical step in my career was to become a personal trainer to help people both physically and mentally.

Why choose us

At MHR Fitness we have three principles which run through our DNA:


Your mind controls everything, we help you change and develop the mindset you need to succeed with your health and fitness.


We help you live a healthier lifestyle by teaching you about sensible nutrition and developing healthy habits. Also, we focus on training that’s not only going to challenge you but you’ll also enjoy and happily make a part of your life.


We are highly professional and results driven. We understand that you’ve reached out to us because you’re seeking a specific outcome with your health and fitness. The first thing we want to know is what outcome you are you looking to achieve. Once we have this information, we’ll map out how we’re going to get you there and set very specific goals to keep you focused and accountable on your journey with us.
