Releasing your inner potential! For life, work and sport.
I work with athletes and sports people; as well as busy professionals (e.g. Executives, nurses, CEOs, managers, coaches, IT professionals, engineers, yoga teachers, fitness professionals and people in corporate roles). I'm passionate about helping you to achieve optimum health and peak performance.
When you're in a high performing job, or doing your sport you want to and need to be the best you can. Your health which includes your energy levels, your sleep, weight, mood, hormones, digestion, and stress resilience will all affect how you perform. Even if you are feeling healthy you might be concerned about health issues in the family, or wonder if there is something that will give you that extra edge and motivation
There is so much in the media about nutrition that it can be confusing and difficult to know what is specific to you, not to mention time consuming to do your own research. Then we add on travelling, remote teams, meetings, work hours and perhaps on top of that your sport and home life which all add extra challenges.
These are the challenges that I can help you with and I provide you with motivation, along with practical and personal recommendations that fit into your lifestyle.
The health & hart system follows this 5 step process:
(1) Data capture:
- Information that you provide about your health and lifestyle.
- Medical data (if you have GP medical tests).
- Training plan (if relevant)
- Health assessments (e.g. BUPA).
(2) Goal setting: Identify or clarify your short term and long term goals.
(3) Scientific nutritional testing and analysis (optional, but highly recommended).
(4) Step by step focused programme (nutrition recommendations, with optional yoga and coaching opportunities, referrals).
(5) Review results, feedback and fine tune.
Examples of scientific tests include:
- Adrenal stress test
- Digestion stool test
- Hormone panel
- Thyroid profile
- Genetic DNA health and fitness profile
- Gluten and cross reactivity
- Full comprehensive health panel
I like to speak to potential clients to check that we're a good fit for each other. If you work with me then you can be assured of an enthusiastic and tailored approach. I enjoy motivating and helping you, we negotiate to find a route that's right for you!

She offered lots of sound advice & useful hints & tips as to how to make sustainable & manageable changes. I have definitely seen & experienced the benefits of her wisdom! Thank you Joanne". Sarah Leach, Owner & Coach at STRIDE Coaching & Consulting
"I found maintaining a three day food diary a real eye opener - it really made me think about what I eat. The follow up and analysis session was great and gave me lots of simple ideas for improving my diet. Since then I have stuck to the changes and definitely feel better for it. Thank you for all your help and advice! I recently got a PB at Reading with a combination of new training, core work and the focus on my diet!" Dave Perret, Training for London marathon.
