What Nurture clients say…




“Today I did my first ‘snail to trail run’, and no-one is more surprised than me to think I’m even considering taking on this personal challenge.”


“I will be 67 in March and so I have a few creaky joints and I’m a bit overweight but my main reason for putting myself through this programme is that I want to be able to have the stamina to enjoy life now I’ve retired and to continue to play with my grandchildren as I get older.


This morning was cold and windy, but I set off for my 5 minute walk in my new trainers and hoodie – well I looked like I knew what I was doing anyway! The one minute walks were enjoyable as I walked around our local children’s recreation park. The one minute runs I thought would be a challenge, and admittedly I was pleased when my phone told me that my minute was up each time, but they were very achievable and I felt great when I’d finished my first 20 minute programme. I was slightly out of breath but my legs didn’t ache. Let’s see how they feel in the morning – but it was worth it to feel I’d started to work towards a healthier me. I’ll let you know how it goes!”

“My Nurture programme has taught me some incredibly valuable techniques to combat the stress and anxiety and focus on my mental wellbeing in an achievable way.”


“Before I started my Nurture programme I was struggling with anxiety and stress, mainly revolving around my work life. My Nuture programme has taught me some incredibly valuable techniques to combat the stress and anxiety and focus on my mental wellbeing in an achievable way. The fact the programme is tailored to each person is fantastic, it means you’re not trying to cram in exercises when you don’t have time, which is what I’ve tried to do before and it had put me off.

“Alice is a brilliant mentor who has encouraged me to try new things and make really positive life changes. As well as the stress relieving exercises, I have also been running with Alice, this is something I have never committed to before but I felt a big difference in my fitness level by week 3! I now really enjoy going for an evening run or spending part of my evening doing stretching and strengthening exercises, which is something I never thought I would hear myself say. The Nurture programme has changed my daily routine in a hugely positive way and I feel much more relaxed, much healthier and much happier.”

“I always found exercising, especially running a daunting prospect”


After losing weight through dieting alone, I was still feeling unfit and in need of toning. I always found exercising, especially running a daunting prospect. After talking to Alice, I instantly felt inspired to purchase some running shoes and to get out into the open countryside.


Alice is great at gauging existing fitness levels and then uses her expertise to slowly increase overall strength and stamina, without causing any apprehension. She is also incredibly personable and always makes me feel comfortable when exercising. Alice has equipped me with numerous running routes, straight from my front door, making running an easy, achievable long-term exercise for me.


I am now able to head out independently using the skills and routes I have been provided with. Not only is this great for my own health, but also motivates and teaches the importance of exercise to my 5 year old daughter.”
