LIFE Stories

Each client we connect with has their own unique issues to contend with. No two clients stories are the same.
Here in their own words our clients explain how we assisted them to become LIFE Acrobats

I recently had the pleasure of working with Emma for two weeks aboard my yacht while touring the Galapagos Islands. I have had Parkinson’s Disease for twelve years and have recently had a complete shoulder replacement. Emma provided practical physical care and support during our adventures ashore, and delivered exercise therapy and sports massage when back onboard. I’m pleased to report considerable recovery in my shoulder movement.


Emma is kind, caring and diligent; but also persistent – always encouraging me to do another repetition of the exercise when she thought it appropriate. I would not hesitate to recommend Emma’s services.

I cannot thank Emma enough for introducing me to the LIFE Acrobat way of living.  This experience has changed my outlook on life;  how I handle both day-to-day challenging situations, and to the way in which I plan my future.

Emma came into my life six months ago, when I was feeling overwhelmed with both work and personal circumstances, to a point where I did not recognise myself.  She tailored the programme to suit my individual needs and I cannot express how much Emma was ‘hands-on’ and always encouraging, without this ever feeling intrusive.  

From a mental health perspective, I found the coaching sessions particularly helpful and something I very much looked forward to.  Emma really did pay attention to all aspects of my life, no matter how minor and could always relate to them.  In addition, Emma was always there for me and it will be very odd not to have her checking in every day.  

I learnt how to cook the most amazing healthy meals and Emma always took into consideration my likes and dislikes (and my love of chocolate!) as well as the fact that my husband is gluten and dairy intolerant; so the dinner recipes needed to suit him as well. Meal prep has very much become part of my life now.

As to exercise, Emma’s daily encouragement really helped me make sure that I did not skip any gym classes as I felt that I had someone cheering me on.  Emma is so knowledgeable that she helped me figure out what exercises work for me, why my body was reacting in certain ways and also how to achieve the best results.  I credit Emma for helping me love exercise again and making this part of my daily routine.  

I have never taken well to being told what to do and Emma’s style is far from this – she helps you discover your better self, not for a quick fix, but for lasting results both inside and out.  Thanks Emma!

I can’t thank you enough for all the hours you have put into helping me raise my game. Over those first three months I lost 10kg. You have me back at the weight I was in my early twenties!

Having learned how to cook such tasty, healthy food, I am proving I can keep the weight off; particularly coupled with my new found love of running. I have done four more 10k races since you encouraged me to do the race in Palma, and the times keep coming down.

I am now in a career I love, that allows me to travel, and earn twice my previous salary. I know that I would not have had the clarity to make that change without the benefit of your coaching and support.

Thank you so, so much. Tish xx

I cannot begin to thank Emma enough for my positive experience as part of her LIFE Acrobat course.

She spent 10 weeks providing me with nutritional, exercise and mindfulness advice to help me lose weight and become more positive about myself.

The results were fantastic and prepared me for a 6 week holiday! And 3 months later the whole family still enjoy the scrummy recipes, and I am still very motivated about keeping myself fit.

Not many diets/lifestyle changes have had that effect before!!!

Thank you Emma

After many months with a back condition, I was looking for some inspiration to help me to loose weight and to regain my fitness. It was clear that I needed some help to make lifestyle changes to ensure that I could sustain any benefits that I might gain. Emma offered the services of LIFE Acrobat and we worked together for 3-months. Throughout this time, Emma was incredibly supportive, she took the time to really understand the pressures on my routine and she offered practical solutions to help me improve my diet and increase my activity levels.

Emma is a natural ‘motivator’ and has a great way of pushing me, but without ever pressing too hard. Despite the fact that the whole ‘offer’ is remote (I’ve never met Emma), I always felt 100% supported, and she was always readily accessible. Emma offers an extremely professional package supported by technology. At first, I was nervous about some of the tech that she suggested; but it was all really easy to do, and it helped me to gain a better understanding of my diet and activity levels, and it enabled Emma to monitor my progress.

I now have a much healthier diet, and critically, I believe this will be sustainable for the future. Emma was able to offer practical recipe choices as part of the programme and I have been able to easily incorporate these into my routine diet: I particularly enjoyed the baked salmon with pistachio crust. I also rediscovered my love of porridge for breakfast and this stopped my snacking mid-morning! My activity levels and exercise have increased significantly, and I have lost weight and inches. Another side benefit is that the positive changes that I have made to my lifestyle have rubbed off on my husband and my 2 young boys: Indeed they have all stepped-up their activity levels and greatly improved the quality of their diet. Emma offers a whole lifestyle approach to fitness and diet and this is clearly backed-up with exceptional knowledge, experience and a very personable approach. I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Emma’s services.

When you are out of the habit of doing something, you also become a pro at making excuses as to why you are not doing it. This was me! I was working for a demanding tech start-up, all hours of the day and having to take clients out on a regular basis in the evenings. By the time I arrived home, all I wanted to do was curl up in my pyjamas and sleep.
Emma and I worked together on how to reintroduce exercise into my daily routine. I had truly lost my confidence in this area and Emma has been amazing at coming up with easy to follow HIITs, Toning and Body Conditioning plans that I can literally do anywhere!
Over the course of a few months, I’ve toned up and my energy levels are better too – due to a combination of short exercise sessions, and having a re-assessment of my diet. Life Acrobat has been a positive step change for me – and one I will be continuing.

I often get bored during my workout routines but with you the time just swished by!

My friends and I just love the way you vary (and personalize) the sessions by training one set of muscles, exhausting them completely, before going on to the next muscle group.

Circuit training at its best!

Thank you, Emma, for creating really fun training sessions for me and my friends.

You’re a great chef who has inspired me to healthy gourmet cooking! Thanks for helping me to a healthier me!
