I would definitely recommend Nora as a Trainer,

I Would Recommend Nora 100%

She is tough but I felt great after working out with her.

Always Encouraging & Motivating

Good mix of exercises and adapted workouts so I got the best out of them.

Always explained each exercise concisely and made sure my core, posture & position was right at all times.

Nora is an excellent trainer, encouraging and motivating which is what I need to achieve my goals.

Great Cardio Session

I had a great cardio session with Nora.

Even though it was challenging the hour went really quick and I really appreciated the time she spent on stretching.

Thank you Nora


You Helped Me Discover My Real Dreams

You haven’t given me the answers, you’ve given me the process to find the answers myself.

My initial goal was to care for people/nursing, but Nora somehow knew I had bigger but buried dreams and helped me to discover for myself one of my real dreams, working with animals.

I now have my own thriving business working with dogs. 30/06/2018

My Clothes are Getting Looser

I met this lady by chance when my life was rock bottom. She has changed my life for the better.

I can now wear things I’ve not been able to as my clothes are getting looser.

People are noticing and commenting on the difference in my weight, energy and positivity. 20/06/18

The help I received from Nora was excellent!

I felt nervous and anxious and frightened but the treatment I received from Nora was very reassuring and positive.
Nora put me at ease, she was very professional and has an ability to work to a very high standard.

The help I received was excellent.

We had some giggles along the way and some serious times with lots of emotions coming out of me that I haven’t been able to release before.

I have a more positive approach to life. 10/2018

I’m now able to get a good nights sleep

I went to see Nora as she’d helped me before, this time it was sleep issues.

My lack of sleep was caused by worrying due to family issues, and a medical problem.
Nora put me at ease and the Hypnotherapy went very well, Nora also gave me a recording to take away which was a great idea and helps me sleep.

I am now able to get a good nights sleep and wake up less tired. I’m not sleeping in the afternoon and no longer snack before I go to sleep.

I can do so much more throughout the day now.

Having had great success with Nora previously, I knew she could help me again as I recently had to have an Angiogram and was petrified, and had a real phobia about needles and going into my wrist, I was even scared to get to the theatre.

After an hour of coaching and two hypnotherapy sessions, I walked into the operating theatre without a worry. I couldn’t stop laughing during the procedure, it was so funny!

This lady saved my life and I can’t express the help she’s given me.
She instinctivly knows how to draw things out so they are addressed and coaches on how to find the solutions yourself.

Nora asks the right questions but never gives you the direct answer, she helps you to find it.

So today I went for a Kinetic Shift session with Nora. As she was working I could actually feel the pain being lifted out of my body!

It was absolutely amazing

I came home feeling great with no pain, I felt alive again and not just one mass of pain

My Husband Frank Has Lost 1.5 Stone So Far!

Just completed my 6th Session, so 3 weeks with Nora, really noticing a lot of benefits already.

I’ve a much better reach and I am pain free in my knees, (double replacement). I’m losing weight, inches and sleeping better.

Having lost 1.5 stone already, my clothes don’t fit and I’ve had to put another notch in my belt!

I’m feeling good and have greatly increased energy levels.

Overweight, Unfit & Sluggish – Then We Met Nora Baker!

Pam and Frank

At our initial assessment we were asked what our goal for this course would be and we agreed that we would both like to see our grandchildren grow up and maybe even meet our great grandchildren, if we are so blessed.
Prior to starting on the programme at Activ8change we were both overweight, unfit and sluggish. We had poor sleep patterns, waking in the night and not waking refreshed. Then we met Nora Baker who was training us individually, but now as a couple, Nora has given us some amazing results from the 12 Week Jump Starter programme, an Accelerated Fat Loss course which we are just over half way through.
Originally we attended the Activ8change gym for our personal training sessions but with the Coronavirus lockdown our training has shifted online using a platform that allows Nora to see and supervise our sessions in our own home. This is different in that we have no large equipment to use at home although we do have some weights and boxing gloves! We still end a session knowing we have been worked hard.
The changes we have noticed are many and varied. The first thing I noticed was I was pain free from my arthritic knees, something the GP told me I would have to live with. Frank has now lost 2 stone and I have lost 1 stone in weight and we have both noticed the inches melting away. Frank can even wear the new jeans bought for me at Christmas, although he doesn’t like the fact they zip the wrong way!
As well as the sizing changes we are stronger and fitter meaning that we can move faster and more flexibly for longer. Our household jobs are completed more effectively and we don’t nap in the day as we used to. I love gardening and have found I am much more flexible allowing me to crouch to weed or kneel to reach the soil without being unable to rise or move the next day because of the stiffness. My concentration has also improved and stress levels have reduced.
Although we are tired in the evening and ready for bed, going to sleep is no longer a problem and we sleep 6 to 8 hours solidly. If we do need to get up in the night, sleep comes easily after. The other noticeable thing with sleeping is that neither of us snore loudly any more, I don’t wake myself by snoring and Frank does not now hold his breath whilst asleep, which is good as I was beginning to worry he had sleep apnoea. We both appreciate the other is being less disruptive and noisy.
With the exercises we have learned new skills – I can touch the floor from standing (something I couldn’t do even as a child), boxing and we can jog again, Frank is extending the time so he can start to run outside, and yes I can jog slowly, not for long yet, but moving fluidly and comfortably. It also has reduced both our blood pressures with Frank being told by the GP to reduce his medication with a view to stopping it altogether in a few weeks. Hopefully I will be told the same at my next appointment.
Also the oedema on our feet and legs went within days of commencing the course along with the painful hot and angry patches on my legs.
Other changes we have noticed are:
• Franks Duputrans contracture discomfort (tendons in his hand contracted causing clawing of the hand) has markedly decreased and he can open his hand flat once more. The pain has reduced from 8 to 3 out of 10. He can lift, hold and replace items such as hot drinks without being fearful of dropping them and lift items of weight.
• Franks arm was painful following several falls over the years and his shoulder would not move easily. The pain has reduced considerably and he can comfortably raise his arm above his head, including with weight.
• My breathlessness was becoming an issue, I had referred to the GP with no real solution, but this has now improved to I only get breathless when I am exercising or really pushing myself physically.
• My stiff neck, complete with all the cracking noises, has gone.

These changes have not come easily but with dedication to the Jump Starter programme, methods, motivation and positivity we are achieving a new lifestyle which will carry us forward into the future as healthy and happy retirees.
If we can do this in our seventies then anyone with the right mind-set can. Bring on great grandchildren!

Weight Loss Frank

About Nora, she is not an ogre or a bully but she does ensure you work hard, at the right level for you, and ensures you progress, adapting to new skills all the time. She is very knowledgeable and adapts the programme to suit each person giving lots of confidence and motivation, ensuring she cares for your complete wellbeing at all times. She has lots of patience (I need it) and is remarkably easy to work with, her desire for you to succeed in achieving your targets shines through. We will certainly be looking to move onto the maintenance programme once our intensive course is finished as we will miss her PT sessions.
