Re-living the most unreal weekend at ATHX through ‘s lense 📸

… Definitely don’t want to re-live that endurance workout though mind 🥴

The first ATHX, and our very first comp … complete ✅

Headed into this event just to give it a go, wanting to enjoy it, and prove to myself that I CAN!

I jumped headfirst into an environment SO far out of my comfort zone, and faced my own limiting beliefs front on, and you know what? I bloody loved it!

We’re often so quick to doubt ourselves, and question our ability. But if I’ve learned anything from this weekend, it’s that we’re more capable than we think 👊🏻

Also … special shout out to for being my amazing teammate. I’m super proud of you and all you’ve overcome while climbing the mountain that’s been this year. But now you’re standing at the top, enjoying the view🏔️

…So when’s the next one then babes?


Looking ahead to the next 6 months of the year, and feeling FUELLED UP for what’s in store, and the potential that lies ahead 📈

How does the rest of your year look?
What are you going to achieve?
What are you working hard for?

The answers to these questions will help you to get your head in the game, and wake up each day with purpose ⛽️

Don’t waste the rest of the year floating through life without direction and intention; spend some time understanding what you want to achieve, then keep your eyes firmly on the prize, and get to work.

… So let’s get after it shall we?!

WOMENS DAY 🤍 Absolutely bursting with pride after a fabulous Women’s day at HQ yesterday!

A super successful event; one we couldn’t have pulled off without all of these fantastic ladies giving their time and effort to help make the day happen 🙏🏼 Thank you all!

ps… what a line up of Marchon ladies 😮‍💨🤩😍

And of course thank you to all of the wonderful attendee’s - we LOVED having you! Looking forward to sharing more photos from the day 🤍

What a beautiful day celebrating the Newlyweds, Mr and Mrs Hayman 🤍


Those post workout SMILES 😀 All ages, all abilities, working hard, working together, and having a bloody great time doing it … that’s just a standard Tuesday evening at 🔥

What a joy it is to coach these beautiful people and call it work 🫶🏻


How I feel right now is the best I’ve felt for a long time ✨

And it’s no coincidence that my training, and day to day routine is also the best it’s ever been. My nutrition, my sleep, my work. All of it - flying.

I’m working hard, i’m committed, and I’m trusting the process.

Like so many others, I struggled for a loooong (v v long) time trying to force fast results, and instant wins with training / fat loss

But learning to enjoy the process, rather than being fixated on the results has totally changed the game for me

This is the Marchon way, and it’s just the start for me, so roll on what’s to come 🔥

If you resonate with this and want to be on your A game across the board too, I’m here to help! Drop me a message and let’s have a chat 📩

LEAD: One of our three core values, and one i’m proud to live by daily.

As a Coach, my role is to guide and support our members through all aspects of their journey at Marchon. Whether that’s in the form of training in their daily session, or assisting them outside of their workouts with achieving their goals, and being the best version of them across the board.

It’s so much more than just sets and reps.

I wear my Coaches title with pride, both on, and off the gym floor


Feeling refreshed after the long weekend, and focussed on making a difference, both on my life, and on the lives of those around me. LIVE. LEARN. LEAD.

Easter weekend brought some glorious catch ups, real belly laughs, lots of treats, fresh faced runs, and walks in the sun… Just how I like it 🤍

First two weeks at Marchon ✅

I remember the first time I stepped foot inside Marchon HQ; it was a cold Sunday in October, the first of Many Sundays spent studying there with for my Level 3 qual.

I was greeted by two friendly faces in the form of and , I was unaware at the time, but they were two individuals who would go on to change my life in many ways.

I’ve been invested in the Marchon ecosystem since that day, whether it be PFCA mentorship, the online programming, FFC seminars and courses, or working with the fantastic Nutrition team; MARCHON has been a true guiding light in both my training and my Coaching career 💡🔦

Which is why joining, and learning from the Marchon coaching team is such a privilege - so thank you for having me with you boys. I’m very proud to stand beside you on the floor 👊🏻

Being part of a team, and company who I have such respect for, but who also believe equally as much in me, really is something very special.

What a first two weeks it’s been. More of the same to come 🚀

A fabulous weekend of food, drink and the best company. Here’s to Chapter 28, I think it’s going to be a good one ✨


I’m this happy to be heading into February ⬆️🤸🏼‍♀️

The days will get longer, the sun will rise higher, the weather will get warmer, and spring is around the corner.

There’s a fresh month of opportunity at our feet… what a joy, hello February ✨

Finding the balance on Boxing Day ⚖️


Need some last minute Christmas present inspo? Gift vouchers are still available, and are the perfect present for your loved one; wether they already love training, or are looking to get fit in the new year … the gift vouchers are great for all! 🎁

Give the gift of health and fitness this year 🤩

Message me today and I can arrange for it to be dropped off to you before the big day! 🎄



1) don’t do it.

The odds are that you’re feeling unwell at the moment, or you have been fairly recently. There’s so much going around at the moment, it’s winter, we’re human, it happens. 🦠

Recovering from a cough, cold or any of the other nasty virus’ that are flying about can take time. We need to respect that. And respect our bodies recovery time.

Training should be the least of your worries if you have an illness, or if you’re getting over one ❌

So, here are my actual tips:

1) Recovery should be your priority right now (rest and sleep are your best friends)

2) Nourish your body with nutritious foods, and stay hydrated

2) Once you’re feeling more like yourself, ease yourself back into some gentle movement when you feel it’s right to. Think walking, stretching, low intensity stuff to start with, then build from there.

That way when you’re back fighting fit, you can attack your sessions how you used to! 🔥

… Tag your sick note mates in the comments, and let’s get them recovered🤧😷


Running into November like 🏃🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♀️

BMA SUMMER COMP 💃🏼🚀 Wow what a day with the best team around!

Love being part of this community of really great people doing bloody cool things. This place is super special🤍

Thank you to the best teammates and it was a pleasure to be on your team!

When’s the next one then?👀🔥


Like mother like son 🤍 Leo had great fun at the gym yesterday watching and learning from his mum and he saw how strong, capable and bloody badass she is! What a woman 🤩

Now the summer holidays are here, sometimes childcare can be an issue, so your children/babies are welcome come along to BMA, and my studio too! They can even join in if they fancy it, nothing like learning the ropes early 🤪

I’m a huge believer in the importance of your children having exposure to exercise at an early age. We can’t underestimate the benefits of instilling healthy habits, and developing a positive relationship with exercise in their early years! 💪🏼

Please note: Pony the session cheerleader sitting on the ski erg cheering them on 🥺🥰

What a weekend that was! Spent in the sun, surrounded by my favourite people, doing the things I love… to me, that’s what life’s all about. How could I not have a permanent smile on my face?! 😅

Heading into this new week feeling fulfilled and ready to get after it! Let’s go team 🔥

Allow me to re-introduce myself 🎙 It’s been a while since I said Hi on my feed … so Hi! I’m Coach Sophie, and it’s a pleasure to have you here with me ✌🏻

📚 I qualified as a PT almost 2 years ago, wow time flies!

📍 I coach from 2 locations: Segensworth PO15 at , and at my home studio based in Durley SO32

💪🏼 My motto is ‘YES YOU CAN’ and my clients continue to prove this daily! They’re always showing themselves that they are capable of achieving what they once doubted they could!

🧠 I’m a firm believer in training for mind and body. Keeping on top of my own training is a must for the quality of my mental health, and I’m sure many of my clients will agree. Exercise runs wayyyy deeper than just chasing physical goals!

🐶 I have a 4 year old English bulldog called Frank

☕️ I’m a big coffee lover with a huge sweet tooth so will rarely turn down a sweet treat

#️⃣ Despite it being a big part of my job, I’m hopeless at numbers and counting 😂 So expect to be doing extra reps when I lose count 😇

💃🏼 I’m here to help you feel your best! Sometimes support and accountability is all that’s needed to take the step towards change, and with me by your side, the sky is the limit 🚀

So, that’s me! If you ever have any questions or need some support, I’m always here to help, just send me a message anytime … All the love, Coach Soph xoxo

A little reminder that exercise can look different every day, and takes many different forms!

It doesn’t always mean just sweating in a gym, or going for a run… sometimes it looks like paddle-boarding in the sun for your friends hen do!

You don’t need to endure forms of exercise that you don’t enjoy … have fun with it, find what works for you, and try out all the different ways of moving your beautiful body that take your fancy! 🤸🏼‍♀️🌊🏃🏻‍♀️🏋🏼‍♀️

Do you put all of your time and energy into others? Your partner? Your kids? Your job?

Are you at the bottom of your priority list?

Isn’t it time you put yourself first for once?

Isn’t it time you started dedicating time on yourself?

Imagine how valuable that would be for you, and the mental and physical benefits you’d see … well that’s well within reach, you just need to make the step.

I’m here when you’re ready to take that step 🙋🏼‍♀️

Cheers to good health, because in our typical style as humans, it’s not until it’s taken away from us that we realise just how important it is 🤔

After 2 years of successfully dodging it, I’ve been totally floored by covid over the past week. The main things that got me through were various forms of juice, my little fluffy sidekick peanut, and more sleep than I thought was humanly possible (swipe >>)

If we strip it back, our health really is all we have.

You can build a fantastic life, have all the best plans in the world to look forward to, and the best people around you, but all of that falls into insignificance if you’re not able to enjoy it because you’re unwell.

So if the past 2 years have taught us anything it should be to prioritise our health and wellness at all costs.

Sure, germs are inevitable, but it’s how you protect yourself from them and bounce back that’s important.

Build, and nourish your strong and capable body, making it ready to fight whatever the world throws at it, so that you can go on to enjoy all the little, and big things in life … because that’s what it’s all about ♥️

Practice makes progress ⏳

This statement is applicable to many areas of life, and all too often we strive for perfection when it comes to our goals.

When starting out on a new journey, learning a skill, or bettering ourselves in any way, I believe progress should be the focus, rather than perfection.

Perfection is subjective in many ways; who’s version of perfect are you aiming for? … Instead, make progress your version of perfect.

Stay in your own lane, and aim to simply be better than you were yesterday … That sounds pretty perfect to


Sometimes self love is treating yourself, indulging and relaxing … but self love can also look like making time for yourself, showing up for yourself, and keeping the promises you made to yourself.

… That’s the ultimate form of self love.

Happy Valentine’s Day all ♥️


Me looking ahead to what the coming months will bring … (just without the bubbly in hand)

The next few months have got a lot in store for me, a lot of hard work, some great challenges, and some big moves … 👀

If your goals don’t excite you and scare you in equal measure, you’re not aiming high enough … “Don’t fear failure, fear being in the same place next year as you are right now” 🚀

This isn’t just for the Ladies … Gents and fellow coaches, listen up because this one’s important 📣

It’s no secret that the menstrual cycle can be super hard to deal with, for many different reasons.

One of these reasons is it can be incredibly frustrating when it affects your training. Sometimes it feels like one step forward, 2 steps back. One session you made incredible progress, then literally the next day you could feel like a completely different person.

This change in strength, and energy levels is down to our hormones. Swipe through this post for a full explanation of each hormonal phase, but here’s a summary for you:

⬆️ Day 1-13 : Oestrogen takes over - the superwoman hormone. She makes us feel invincible, strong, capable and ready to take on anything! This phase is called the follicular phase.

⬇️ Day 14-28 : Ovulation occurs, then we’re onto the next phase, the luteal phase. Progesterone comes out to play; strength and energy levels are decreased, hunger and cravings go through the roof, and not to mention
any signs of PMS that might also affect us 🥴

So with all of this in mind, is it any wonder your training ability may fluctuate through the month?

If you struggle with sessions at certain times through your cycle, please please listen to what your body is telling you. I can’t stress it enough.

❗️Tell your coach, because your training can easily be adapted to be more suitable. (And if your coach isn’t comfortable talking about this… it’s time to find a different coach, but that’s a conversation for a different day ✋🏼)

Then when you’re back to feeling fierce and ready to rock and roll, you can focus on making all the gains you want 💪🏼🚀

Share this post with anyone you think might find it useful 📩 And if you want to talk about this some more … hit your girl up, I’m always here to help 🙋🏼‍♀️


How will YOU make today great? Too many of us rely on external factors to decide wether it’s going to be a good or bad day.

But what if today you were intentional with your actions and thoughts, and make a deliberate effort to make today a success.

You might not be in control of everything that happens to you today, but you are in control of how you react to those things.

Just some food for thought this Friday morning … 💭

Let this be a lesson to you …

I put off my run ALL day, for so long in fact that it was dark when I finished it 🌖 (although my red face is definitely still visible even in the dark 😂)

There was no need to procrastinate for so long, it was no where near as bad as I imagined it would be, and I feel A-MAZING for getting it done!

So if you’re doing the same and putting off your workout … just get it done. Stop avoiding it, and get started.

Once it’s done, it’s done. And the sense of achievement you get once you’ve done it is 100x better than that feeling of avoiding it ☝🏻

Swipe to see one of my clients who is most definitely in the same boat … some days it just doesn’t come so easily, but we’re in this together 💪🏼
