Weight loss and fitness

If you are looking for a fitness class that really burns fat or a personal trainer that motivates you to succeed, Local Mums give their recommendations here.


"Vanessa Alexander from Fat Attack became my Personal Trainer after I had my second daughter in 2006. Her attitude and positivity was not only encouraging it was euphoric. Vanessa was as determined as I was to get me back into shape and she is someone I would appoint again and again.

Vanessa takes pride in her no nonsense attitude which I believe spurred on my will to succeed.  She pushes you hard and in no time at all I was back into my good old skinnies! I get bored very easily, Vanessa made sure that she continually introduced new activities and exercises to keep the momentum going.

I can say that my enthusiasm never waned. Vanessa gave me sound nutritional advice which has made a huge difference on the choices I make food wise. I now know what is good for me and what isn’t; it’s not always that obvious! I got healthier, stronger and fitter than ever before; in fact I looked and felt like I was 18 again! Vanessa is a credit to herself; she is hard working and unwavering.

Vanessa also runs early morning ‘work’ work outs which I now attend – they are brilliant and are the perfect formula for a good day - and body!"
Huma Choudhry, Local Mum

"When I first met Vanessa Alexander from Fat Attack I was in a sorry state and I'd more or less given up on my body. I led a ridiculously sedentary life. I worked at home hunched over a laptop, lived 30 seconds from the tube and was quite capable of spending days at home without venturing out at all.  I felt bloated and heavy whilst my back and neck muscles were incredibly tense. That something was not right with my body was a feeling which haunted me day in, day out. I couldn't wear nice fun clothes and knew I was harming my health. But I felt paralysed and apathetic - I just couldn't seem to change the status quo. And all the while my expensive gym membership fees were debited monthly from my bank account...

So I embarked on two personal training sessions a week with Vanessa. Initially I was extremely nervous but Vanessa never made me feel as if being out of condition was a crime and set about getting me into shape with her own unique brand of practicality and no nosense training. She initially concentrated on increasing strength and improving core stability and pushing my stamina to the limit, and as I saw results I became naturally more active and started going to the gym on my own too. She also gave me some sound dietary advice which did not require any calorie counting and she has a sound knowledge of functional diagnostic nutrition which really helped me understand dealing with the root cause not the symptoms. 

Knowing that I was seeing her on a regular basis helped me stick to a long-term healthy diet - something I've never quite managed before. The training was always tough and always very varied, including boxing, kickboxing, lots of different contraptions, it was never dull and I never knew what to expect.

Two months on and I've lost well over a stone and walk down the street with my head held high. And it's not just weight loss - my body shape really does seem to have changed. I'd always considered myself weak and puny but now I'm am actually quite strong and feel a lightness and freedom which I've only experienced very briefly before after the odd starvation diet (only to put it all back on again in the next couple of months). With Vanessa's continued support I am confident that my new body is here to stay."
