She would spend all day outside if only she could, in the mountains, on the road or in the water. Kate was the first girl to complete the iron-distance triathlon City to Summit in 2014 and as far as we’re aware is the only person in Scotland (maybe Europe, possibly the world) to be stupid enough to swim 50km non-stop in a tiny swimming pool!
If that all sounds a bit crazy Kate is just your average mum of a crazy toddler, trying to juggle work, exercise and family life. And she wasn’t always like this.
Only 6 years ago she was overweight, inactive and miserable. Desperate to make some physical and personal changes, Kate joined a gym and slowly got active and is now a Certified Level 3 Personal Trainer. She struggles to say no to a bag of giant chocolate buttons, or a glass of bubbly, but she’s excited to join the wonderful Inside Out community.
- Getting to know clients and showing them how they can be fit and healthy without giving up the things they love.
- Writing running programmes for beginners and advanced clients.
- Creating great events for local charities and IO members.
Inside Out really helped me at first as I found it comforting knowing that someone took the time to learn about fibromyalgia. Graham helped me understand that if I look after myself, stay calm, eat well and stay mentally strong that my symptoms will ease off. I actually qualify as a nurse in 8 weeks and I definitely wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t been introduced to Inside Out!Rachel
When I first started at IO the first thing that hit me was the community, it was so welcoming! Adele broke down this lifestyle change in to small steps to make the change in habits more achievable. I think the most important change for me was being mindful of what I was putting in to my body. I’m actually enjoying trying to be a healthier, fitter version of me.Louise Clason
Graham is incredibly down to earth, has never judged me (even when I have slipped up) and has helped to show me that subtle changes and forming better habits is the best way to make improvements that will last. Inside Out has been the most consistent thing I have ever done and this is why I have been so successful.Katie
