I'm the founder of bodyhappy and a personal trainer, dedicating my life to helping hundreds of women improve their health and fitness, to become stronger and more confident.
I've developed the `Bodyhappy System`, a training and lifestyle philosophy based on a set of principles that combined together make a stronger, leaner, happier and more confident you.
I love every aspect of fitness from running marathons, practicing Yoga and Pilates to lifting weights. It's my honest opinion that a combination of all disciplines creates a stonger, more energised, healthy and lean body.
My programmes are flexible so you can choose whether you want to work out at your home, outside or at a local gym. I will teach you the principles of how to train and eat correctly to increase both your fitness and body composition. If you are a complete beginner or you already excercise regularly, my programmes will take you to the next level in your fitness goals.
I'm with you every step of the way.

I have been living in Spain for many years now and concluded that the Spanish lifestyle has not always been the best for my figure. With the sun shining most of the time, there is also always time for a glass (or more) of wine. And, in my case, alcohol goes together with unhealthy eating... it was definitely time for a change. So I signed up for a personal body plan including personal trainer, which I had never done before.
I am meeting Helen in a bar in Aloha, order a cappucino and think to myself: will she judge me for having a cookie? Helen looks extremely fit; she asks me all kinds of questions about my eating, drinking and exercise habits.
'How much water do you drink a day?' To which I reply in embarrassment, 'Eeek...none and I haven't done any exercise for years either.' Helen starts by telling me the basic principles of the plan... 'Four months ago I packed-up my business in London, moved it to Marbella, and I haven't looked back. My Bodyhappy System focusses on one thing: getting you healthy. With this in place, fat loss is the easy part, eating nutrient-dense whole foods that support your hormones, liver, gut and overall health. I like to look at it this way...what can I add to your life rather than taking away? The training focusses on the most important thing: results and happiness on a day-to-day basis.'
We take my measurements, discuss training schedules and set a goal for a four percent loss of body fat. Since a normal programme takes around three months, and I only have six weeks, I really need to be strict. It will be three sessions of personal training a week, at my home or a local gym and, food-wise, a lot of green vegetables, protein and NO alcohol. It is going to be a real challenge, but I must do this...and I can. Can't I?
As Max Fitness is close to my home, I am doing classes at his beautiful gym overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This surely makes exercising more pleasant. Helen teaches me how to use weights and different equipment, using a variety of techniques to improve the body's structure, movement patterns, strength and power. Although I am not hungry, the first two weeks are hard because I need to lose my cravings for sugar, but once I have got over that, everything became a lot easier. I soon noticed that I could move better, I felt less bloated and could quickly see changes in my body.
Helen is amazing, asking me daily about my diet and how I have been feeling after hard workouts. She is super supportive and gives me all kinds of tips, from how to prep my food to what exercises I can do by myself at home.
During the weeks that follow I try to stick to the diet as well as I can. I have a busy schedule with work, events, friends coming over and dinner in restaurants, but this is all about making healthy choices - and this I do.
When the final day arrived, I was nervous about the results, unnecessarily however... I lost over three inches (eight centimetres) around my waist and the total loss of body fat was not four but five percent! I was over the moon! Apart from the fat loss, what is more important is that I feel better physically and mentally. I have more energy, my skin looks better and my body structure has improved. And this has another benefit in that pain I used to have in my lower back has been reduced considerably.
It shows that exercising in combination with powerful nutrition really has been a life-changing experience for my body and mind. This feels great, I plan to continue, and now I know I can. I look forward to an even happier body.

Helen is amazing. For the first time in my life I was able to do burpees and I can feel myself getting stronger and fitter already. Sessions are motivating and encouraging, with no yelling.
Helens knowledge of diet and fitness has helped me so much, being a fussy eater and a working full time mum of 2 boys she made the plan fit round my life..... absolutely fantastic
Helen gives great fitness and food inspiration and encourages you every single step of the way. To get the body you are happy with it's about learning to change how you think about yourself and what you eat.
Helen is a fantastic personal trainer & motivator. I really enjoy my work out sessions with her, she keeps it simple. Helen has really changed my mind set!!

It is an effective weekly class. It's a great session with great people. I always leave feeling accomplished and I've already seen results! Thanks Helen!!
I've done the "30 days transformation", 4 times a week. Training with Helen has been great and exciting. Her workouts on the beach were challenging and very helpful to develop core and muscle strength as well as cardio thanks to high intensity exercises. At the end of this month my body is much more toned and I lost cm around the chest, waist and hip area
I don't have a lot of time and to be honest not greatly motivated to do lots of exercises or classes. Helens 7 minute exercise programme hits the spot, it doesn't impact on your day, you don't have to go out, but still have the motivation of the on-line videos, plus if you have any questions Helen is always there to answer them. Its also very easy to get into, my preference is core, I have actually lost inches around my waist Try it for a couple of months and see if it works for you
