Better Health • Better You

Become A Healthier and Happier Version of Yourself

The stresses and responsibilities of everyday life can often take priority over your own well-being but doing so can leave you like you're spread thin and overwhelmed. By investing time in yourself, you can be better in all elements of your life and reap the benefits of higher energy levels, more confidence and an overall better quality of life.

Achieve Your Body Goals

Being unhappy with your body can really affect your confidence and overall feelings of worth so whether you want to lose weight, gain weight or just improve your tone; having accountability and motivation from a trainer will see you smashing your goals.

Nutrition Planning and Advice

Regardless of your goals, nutrition plays a major role. So whether you are trying to lose weight, build muscle, feel more energetic or just have a healthier and more balanced lifestyle; having an understanding of what to eat and how much to eat is vital.

Personalised Training Programs

Everyone starts their journey from a different place so your training programme should reflect that. A custom-made programme means that it will be completely tailored to where you are at now, where you want to go and how you want to get there.

Group & Personal Training

Whether you are someone who thrives from group sessions or would prefer the privacy of one on one sessions - I offer group and personal training sessions both in person and online. This include Pilates Training too.

Corrective Exercise

Imbalances in the body can often lead to less than optimal posture and can alter the way we move. Over time this can wreak havoc on our body, particularly on our joints, and over time can lead to knee, hip and back issues. Find and fix imbalances in your body and bring it back to optimal alignment for improved wellness.

A Few Words About Me

My Story

“I am Natalie Holmes, the founder of You First”

My journey towards healthier living started in 2012 when I moved from London to Sri Lanka. From partying, binge-drinking and leading a very unhealthy lifestyle of McDonald’s breakfasts and fast food in London, I found myself in Sri Lanka and not liking what I saw in the mirror. I threw myself into exercise and more conscious living. After a year and a half I was scouted by Victoria’s Secret and embarked on a 4 year long career as a fitting model. As a part of my contract I had to stay in shape, but rather than hiring a personal trainer, I went through the motions and learned everything through experience. Incorporating exercise into my routine truly transformed my life and helped me through some of my toughest times, therefore, upon returning to the UK in 2020 during lockdown, I decided to turn my passion into a career by completing a Level 3 Personal Training qualification and starting You First. As someone who learns from doing, I have made many mistakes during my fitness journey, including herniating a disc, so my approach to fitness and exercise is a very holistic one and centred around functional fitness, building strong core foundations and performing exercises in a safe and sustainable way. This does not mean that you will not be challenged or able to achieve your goals, it just means that priority and emphasis will be placed on good execution and quality over lifting heavy and aesthetic gains.

What Clients Say

I reached out to Natalie in early summer to help motivate my fitness goals, having been through the same lockdown/WFH challenges as many others. Our 1:1 sessions have been fantastic, with excellent attention to form and increasing strength, flexibility, and posture. All of her sessions are targeted exactly to my desired targets, gaps, and injuries – every week. Would highly recommend Natalie for anyone looking for custom, progressive sessions for long-term success.

Nay Stewart

With home working and lockdown, I’d definitely become quite sloth like (!), and my fitness levels had plummeted massively. Natalie has developed a plan to help get things back on track starting with lots of mobility and posture work which has really helped with all the day-to-day aches and pains that had appeared, and prepared me for taking on cardio and strength work without any injuries (which is what happened when I tried to sort this all out by myself!) She’s been amazing and taking the time to create a plan that meets my needs and works for me, and explaining the how and why of what we’re doing which I really like. She’s been wonderfully patient, encouraging and has an excellent sense of humour – which has been essential when working with me! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a PT!

Jen Illman

I built up the courage to ask for help in getting healthier and fitter and to lose weight, I went straight to Natalie because I knew that she would give me a very much needed kick up the bum, every week she makes the effort to fit in with my timing and gives me her everything! She doesn’t let me give up or stop all while encouraging me, in the last few weeks I’ve noticed a huge difference in my abilities to do the workouts and my endurance! All while having a catch up and a bit of gossip! What more could I ask for!!

Adeline Leblanc

I am a 38 year old mum of 2 who was putting off doing any kind of exercise. I had no motivation and had become extremely unfit and overweight since lockdown started. I decided to join in on the free sessions at the beginning of March and have now completed 5! I’m so glad I did, I feel like I have a lot more energy and I am not finding the exercise as hard as the first week. I have already noticed a difference in my body and feel very proud for sticking with it. Natalie is brilliant she is enthusiastic, cheerful, encouraging and Keeps you motivated. Honestly if I can do it anyone can! I weighed myself today and have lost 1.8 kg (4lbs) in a week and a half and that is without changing my diet.

Programmes On The Go

No more annoying paper-based training programmes; all training programmes come on a mobile app with full instructions and demonstration videos for all exercises. You can keep track of your goals, food, upload progress photos and measurements, in addition to having the ability to message me at any time for support. Activity from FitBit and Apple watch can also be integrated into your profile so not only is it convenient that you can have everything in one place, but as your trainer, I have access to your profile so I can get a proper insight into your progress.

Getting Started Guide

With the vast array of information on exercise and nutrition on the internet, and different sources telling you different things, I know how confusing and frustrating it can get trying to know what's right and what's wrong. That’s why I have put together this exercise and nutrition essentials' guide to try and simplify everything and take it back to the basics.
