About me

Living Fit is more than a physical feeling, it's a state of mind.

My Fit Life Coaching specialise in supporting professionals and small businesses to take an active interest in living fitter. To find the freedom to take control of their lives and work environment to set exciting new challenges and goals.

You know that being physically active is important to your physical health and mental wellbeing. It fosters creativity, enables clarity of thought & focus and builds resilience. You may also know that being outdoors and simply being active supports your mental health more than any other prescribed medication on the market.

It's not just about keeping physically active though. It's building your self-confidence, and inner resources. Having a sense of purpose and feeling fulfilled. Creating time for connection with family and friends, as well as personal growth and being adventurous.

You may know all this yet still not get the time to do something about it.

It's not because you are lazy or lack motivation either. Sometimes busy just gets in the way of everything. Sometimes your work, eat, sleep routine is so hectic that nothing else can find a way in.

My Fit Life Coaching supports you in designing the life you want to lead both at work and home. Together we will;

  • Review how you live your life now and what it gives you already
  • Establish the goals you want focus on
  • Design a ‘Fit Life’ plan that works for you
  • Build your confidence and resilience through dedicated, confidential sessions
  • Create space and time to develop a fitness routine and new healthier habits
  • Support your development enabling you to grow and live life like you mean it

My motto is 'Life is Journey, Enjoy the Ride' and this is exactly what I help people to do. There have been times when it really hasn't been like that for me, but through my own journey I have learnt how to support myself and care for myself more than I have ever done before and My Fit Life feels great. I am now dedicated to helping others to find theirs.

Are you ready for your Fit Life? Book your free sample coaching session TODAY and we can talk about how to start your journey.

Testimonials

The sessions with Nicky have been one of the most important investments I’ve made for my own personal development and mental health, and have truly changed the path of my life.  I would highly recommend My Fit Life to anyone looking for a way to take that extra step from the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Andy Caley

I went places I never would have gone on my own..... Nicky's questions enabled me to come up with new ideas and developments I never would have thought of!

Working, writing and running, finding time in an otherwise busy world

I started out as someone who lacked self-belief and confidence, worrying far too much about what others thought of me and was desperate to please..... I was skeptical about coaching and whether it could help me however after 4 sessions and with very clever questioning from Nicky I learnt to recognise that I really was good enough, I now have a clear view of my aims and how I am going to achieve them matched with self confidence and the belief to succeed.

Achieving dreams and growing in confidence

When you're ready to design your Fit Life book a free sample session with me, in the meantime you can connect with me over on LinkedIn and Facebook for more motivation and inspiration.

Training, qualifications & experience

How my past shapes my future

I have 17 years experience managing and leading within IBM's Global Technology Services (GTS) Business. Leading, coaching and mentoring specialist technical and service integration teams to support the delivery of large scale, complex IT programmes.  

This taught me how a balanced approach to leading and working, not only in business but also in life, is essential. You are only as successful as your ability to keep moving forward in the right direction and you have to course correct occasionally to stay on track. I also know that to do this you will need support from a coach or mentor.

I have studied and qualified in many areas over the years, a few of these qualifications are detailed below and show the depth of my knowledge in both coaching, leading and fitness. However my depth of knowledge is only as good as my continued personal development which I am committed to daily through reading, listening and research. If you are interested I have included a number of books that I have read (and re-read) that inform and inspire me.

Qualifications

  • Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching
  • Mindfullness Coaching (CPD)
  • Confidence Coaching (CPD)
  • LEAN Practitioner
  • IBM - Authentic Leadership (inc. coaching and mentoring)
  • Degree in Business Management and IT
  • British Athletics Run Leader
  • British Cycling Level 2 Coach (Road and TT)
  • British Cycling Level 2 MTB Leader
  • National Standards Cycling Instructor

Books that inform and inspire me

  • The Chimp Paradox - Prof: Steve Peters
  • No Sweat - Michelle Segar, PhD
  • The Go-Giver by B Burg & JD Mann
  • Leadership and Self Deception - The Abridger Institue
  • The Gift of Imperfection - Brene Brown

What doesn't challenge you doesn't change you

With anything it is the space in which I challenge myself and push my limits that make me the person I am today. I want to be an inspiration and a role model to my two mighty girls (14 and 11); being a working Mother has had its ups and downs and in that time I have learnt how hard it can be to nurture two growing and inquisitive girls. Building a relationship that is mutual in its love and respect takes time. I work hard to keep that balance and never take a day for granted - this has taken patience with myself as I have learnt how to grow into the parent I want to be.

Challenge for me also comes in my choice of exercise. Since living fit I have completed 3 Marathons, each with their own unique goal from simply finishing, getting to the start line or achieving a personal best. I have also cycled a number of century (100 mile) rides and embraced my love of cycle related adventures in choosing to take my bike to places some people would laugh at. I have pedalled from Coast to Coast, riding The South Downs Way (100 miles off-road), cycled my way from London to Paris, taken an off-road adventure across the Trans Cambrian Way through mid Wales (100 miles and 15,000ft of climbing) and in 2017 I completed the epic John O'Groats to Lands End (989 miles in 13 days) bike ride solo and unsupported.

As you will see fitness is part of my life journey not just my business model. Being both fit of body and mind is more than the daily steps I take or the weekly cardio workout I do. It is how it makes me feel as a person, how it enables me to achieve my business goals and my life dreams. It nurtures me and nourishes me and I know that without my daily dose of outdoors I am less able to reflect, feel grateful and help others.

Supporting fitness outside of coaching...

When I am not working, being a Mum or pedalling off on my adventures, I support my local running club as a run leader and cycling club as an adult and youth coach. Encouraging novice runners and cyclists to simply get out there and try it, from getting people from couch to 5k to training individuals to cycle their first sportive or kids to stick with a sport they love.

I offer my professional services to a few individuals to learn how to take to the road on two wheels and there is an opportunity to combine your life coaching with either a cycling or running programme.
