About Me

Sport has been the biggest part of my life for as long as I can remember. I was signed for my first ladies football team at the age of 7 years, which ultimately led to a 2 year football scholarship and a National Diploma in sports science.

When I became a trainer I wanted to train people in the way I was trained through the years of being involved in a variety of sports.  My aim is to change the way in which you think about your body and what is possible.

What my clients say

I started coming to Bankside in 2013 having not set foot inside a gym for years. I'd been a member of several but had paid literally hundreds of pounds over the years being clueless and to only use the shower before going out! Kara quite literally changed that! After a few months trying out power plate with her I'd looked through the door at some of her classes but been too intimidated to step inside. After some gentle and enthusiastic encouragement, Kara got me to try my first Grit class and I've never looked back. 

Now I'm a twice a day attendee and love it. That has been entirely down to Kara and her brilliance as an instructor. Because of her I've changed physically but also mentally. My fitness levels from the early days are now unrecognisable. I have a benign form of MS and honestly thought I couldn't withstand exercise. Kara helped me realise that just wasn't true. 

Kara has an absolute knack at working out what someone's sticking point is and shows them how they can change that. She's responsible for making me see that with some effort and a little commitment fitness is achievable to absolutely anyone.  She's an asset to Bankside and turns fitness from being a chore into something to look forward to and, most importantly, something fun.
