Lisa Can Help You Reach Your Next Level!

Some of you will already know me from the gym, but for those that don’t, and for those that are contemplating attending, my name is Lisa, and I’m a new Coach at Your Next Level Fitness in Hessle.

My journey here started just over 4 years ago, when I struggled to get my weight off after having a baby to then find out I was Peri-Menopausal too!  I went from being sooo big, that I couldn’t bodyweight squat without feeling so much pain in my knees, no confidence at all, to then strength training at least 4 times a week with no pain at all and loving it! 

This helped me have the confidence to come off anxiety medication too.

Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t easy and it wasnt quick!!  But once I realised I was committed, and realised I deserved to change, with the constant support from my Coach John (and a jiggle around with my ‘time’ to put myself first for once) I really went for it and worked very hard.  Consistently turning up 4 times a week for class plus open gym sessions.

After a good 2 years and being 5 stone lighter, I decided I wanted to help other people that struggle with their weight and eating habits too, so before I knew it, I’d qualified in Level 2 Gym Instructing, Level 3 Personal Trainer and Level 3 Nutrition Coaching too.  Level 4 Nutrition is starting very soon!

My aim this year is to become a Womens Coaching Specialist.  We have so much going on with our hormones and have a diet culture to contend with too!

I am so passionate about wanting to make people feel good about themselves again.  We all deserve this.  We all have hectic lives in different ways, that sometimes that results in our own needs coming last. 

So if you feel ‘now’ is the time for you to change and put yourself first, then contact me on 07908 158700 or email me lisachat15@gmail.com.

I would love to help you reach your goal and feel good about yourself again.  xx

8 weeks To get leaner – And my 2020 highlights

2020 – What a weird year!  Back in February I had one of the best nights out I can remember – watching terrorvision in Leeds with several mates 👌🏻 

And then ….lockdown hit.  

With my wife being a key worker I was the headteacher! (Note the badge!)

The business I have put loads into had to take a massive back seat, family stuff became a massive focal point .

Even though it’s been a “bad” year – some of the memories we made , would not have been possible without the restrictions …….Like:

Seeing Isla ride her bike for the 1st time:

Kiera chin ups for fun!

Watching money Heist  and trying to play the tune! 😂

We got through lockdown with home workouts….

The girls go to spend lots of time (and have loads of fun!) in the gym as it was empty!

We Eventually moved house! In the middle of lockdown! 

My Brother had a lockdown wedding!

Does anyone remember the amazing weather?!

Cleaning the gym took a while after lockdown…..



Anyway, with all the fun we had been having, I kind of let some habits slip. 

You probably know – extra treats like crisps , chocolate, a few beers in the early evening with the hot weather….

So I decided to get my own coach for a short 8-week challenge . 

I know what you’re thinking – if you know what to do….why do you need to pay someone to coach you? 

I’ll tell you why!

If you don’t answer to someone – you will more than likely just trick yourself or skimp on things you need to do!

So here’s my before shot …. 15th October 

Here’s the Before-to-after (December 10th) 

Easier to say in words what I learned – and what you can learn (!) …from my short 8 week stint.

I forgot to mention that this was a shorter way of getting a little leaner again to where I likely got my leanest for a holiday a while back…..but that one was a few months in the process….

If you have any questions and want to get started, get in touch via the contact page 🙂
