Empowered women, empower women
The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another
Thank you so much for offering such a truly wonderful coaching service to all us working mammy’s. You are an incredible coach, and I deeply value the time you’ve spent inspiring/mentoring/coaching and supporting me over the past 8 weeks.
The progress I made in my life over this short period is incredible, which is all down to you! I wouldn’t be this far along in my goals or have this much courage to push forward, without the 1:1:1 support you always provide. You are extremely personable and empathetic which is very unique in itself.
Since having my babies like most mom’s I’ve struggled for time, yo yo dieted, under nourishing my body, binge eating on weekends while mid-week I would have phases of under eating.
I genuinely didn’t realise this until I began DK’s 6-week challenge in October 2020. On week 2 she advised me I was over training, under eating, “burning the candle on both ends” were her words.
This came as a surprise to me, I believed by putting my body under extreme pressure/ training 7 days a week, would keep me in shape but it was having the opposite effect on me.
I had a lot of gut issues/IBS etc that caused me a lot of discomfort over the years.
I trusted Diana, she’s an expert with an abundance of experience coaching ladies (mom’s) like me. Taking a rest was difficult, increasing my macros was tough too, resting 2 days a week was difficult on week 1 but now I understand the importance of slowing down, reducing cardio/daily steps and fuelling my body etc.
This 6-week challenge has been life changing for me, the flexibility of training at home in the comfort of my own home each day stress free is fantastic.
Diana’s 60pg recipe book is full of beautiful nourishing meals. Her daily check in’s are so personal, she is an amazing coach who is always there for her ladies.
Diana has completely changed my mindset towards food, she thought me how to eat again. She thought me how to train, which has given me huge courage and confidence, (before this I didn’t know a tricep from a bicep) even though I had gone to gym classes for years, but I never had done online coaching.
I have experienced what I can only describe as exponential internal + external growth
I am so excited ahead of where the next 12 weeks will take me.
Thank you coach x
My twins turned 2 July just gone and as anyone with children will know it’s so hard to keep the baby weight off it just sits there and stares at you. I had tried keto that made me miserable.. I tried a coach that gave me a plan of what I strictly had to eat and make every single day same thing day in day out and I’ve tried cal counting on my own. All of these things worked great for about a week if I was lucky.. a strict structured plan just didn’t work for me with two toddlers and working shift. Keto made me the crankiest person to be around and taught me nothing about nutrition, all I did was count down the days until I could “eat normally” again which just led to me binge eating everything I had missed.
As Diana had a baby herself roughly the same time as me I saw how great she looked and how her body came back gradually but in the right way not rushed or extreme just a natural timeline. I contacted her for help and she was on the other side of the phone ready to start.
The training and nutrition advice and plan Diana has given me is by far the only one I’ve ever stuck to properly and actually enjoyed. I can eat in moderation all the things that I like once it’s within my macros. Everything I eat goes into my fitness pal and it allows me to have control which is something I never had with any other “diet”. I’m now so used to it and have learned about the cals in foods that some days I don’t even need to use the app as I have a good idea myself by now! Going to the gym isn’t a chore, the plan she gave me doesn’t keep me in the gym for hours doing exercise that I’m not comfortable or familiar with, it’s quick easy exercise that I can get done with the time frame I have as a busy mom. And the days I simply can’t get to the gym she has a home workout plan also for me - again tailoring completely to me as a mommy and working shift where things don’t always go according to plan.
As well as all of the above Diana herself is always there for support which is a big thing. We have a WhatsApp group with all the members and we all input as much or as little as we want but the support from everyone there with all different backgrounds and situations is such a positive push!
Any questions, queries for food or exercise etc Diana is always just a quick message away.
I have a target goal in my head that I want to get to and I have 4 weeks left until my 12 weeks are up and I can already say I know I will be signing on for another 6-12 weeks again. I wouldn’t write this or invest my money in something I didn’t believe in. And especially these days I really believe the people that deserve recognition and support should get it. Diana you’re a star girl, thanks for everything!
“I've had the pleasure of working with Diana of 2 separate occasions. The first occasion was in 2014 when I had just had my first child and wanted to get back in shape. Then also in 2019 three children later I decided to once again get back into fitness and who better to go to than Diana. My first experience with Diana was so positive I was looking forward to starting again. I found my confidence again and couldn't believe when I actually fitted into my pre-pregnancy jeans. I looked and felt better than ever. Diana supported me completely, far more than what I would have ever expected from a coach. She is a coach who truly cares.
"After years of struggling with my body, a negative mindset and a very bad relationship with food, I finally conquered my fear and asked for help when my health was beginning to suffer after a year of severe anorexia. From the moment I contacted Diana, she put all my fears and reluctance at bay. She understood me from the word go and set a plan in action to help me physically and mentally. She eased me into my recovery, took all my food fears into consideration and gave me a diet plan that suited me and wouldn't scare me or shock my body. She worked quietly behind the scenes tweaking my food and fitness plans weekly, and day by day I started progressing and knew my road to recovery was in a full swing when I began to enjoy food again and most importantly when I started socialising again with friends without fearing food and drinks.
A year has passed and although I still have some demons, I can safely say that if I hadn't contacted Diana, I don't like to think where I would be.
She's more than a coach, she's literally a lifesaver and I cannot thank her enough for all she helped me with during the most difficult phase of my young adult life.
She's my hero"
" I came to Diana for a 6 week online programme when I felt I was at my worst physically. I couldn't get motivated and struggled severely with the food element of my lifestyle. Diana paired it back to basics for me giving me a realistic food plan coupled with a workout regime. I knew I got it good with Diana when she told me some home truths in a motivational way and that was the kickstart I needed. Week in week out Diana never failed to push me, test me and motivate me. What I enjoyed most was not the 2 stone I lost, but how Diana was always there. If I had a question or if I was having a bad day, Diana was always available to lend an ear and give phenomenal advice. She is always cheerful and each week when I checked in I came away beaming with delight after talking to Diana where new goals would be set, the workout would be changed as would the food. The food plan was easy to stick to because firstly there was so much food in the plan and secondly it was food I liked. Diana took the time to listen to my likes and dislikes, what I had access to in terms of the gym equipment and she devised a tailored programme for me. This was the start for me to become fitter, stronger and healthier and I can only thank Diana for the time she invested in me. The online programme without a doubt changed my life. Diana is an absolute inspiration to me and I am glad we crossed paths".
Exercising, fitness and general wellbeing have always been part of my life. To be honest, there have been times when I've struggled with my fitness and weight as I have always fell back into the same sluggish routines and coming up with excuses. Going to the gym used to make me feel intimidated as I didn't really know what to do or how to use the gym equipment properly.
Last year, I decided right that's that and started the fitness programme and nutritional plan with Diana and haven't looked back since. Diana is very supportive and tailor's plan around you and your lifestyle. To say that she's extremely approachable and responsive would be an understatement as she makes you feel like she's with you every step of the way.
When I first joined Diana's programme, I was nervous and was convinced that I was going to make a fool out of myself. The food, the sheer amount of food that I could actually eat and should be eating along with my training regime blew my mind. I've learnt that fitness and happiness in yourself are about finding the right balance, it's not all about the scales and I no longer feel like I don't know what I am doing. I now live a happy relationship with food too which I struggled with for many years especially after having 2 kids.
My advice is to anyone that is looking at wanting to change bad habits and wants to live a healthier lifestyle, get in touch with Diana as it's not about the stereotypical gym scene and blown out of proportion Instagram six-pack abs; it's about looking after your body and mind.
There's now even a community of clients created that can share their own stories and inform others of their progress which is a great tool to see how others are progressing and to discuss your own goals. So what if you do occasionally make an eejit of yourself, just get out and become more active, you will reap the benefits.
