Nadine Abbey

I started working at Uplands helping with kids summer clubs in summer 2011 , I continued working part time as a Gym Instructor and Receptionist. Since then I qualified as a Level 3 Personal Trainer, Exercise to music – and Spinning Instructor. I am finally ready to contribute to getting the country fit and healthy. I have been playing basketball for 8 years now and have had a wide range of experience from where I started playing basketball in Spain, to getting a good range of experiencehere playing for school, county, regional, national and working my way up to England standard. I am now playing for Tonbridge Knights men’s team. I’ve had some good experiences working with different coaches and have been taught in a range of different ways and now I can put these coaching styles together and have a coaching style of my own. Having pushed myself up to England standard and being part of a team has made me love motivating people and making them realise that if people put good effort into something. there is no reason why they wouldn’t achieve their goals.

Karen Weller: “Since starting Personal Training with Nadine and changing my eating habits, I have lost 1.5 Stone and dropped a dress, more than that I feel fitter, happier in my own skin and have more energy than a year ago. To anyone who wants to get results I would recommend you book some personal training with Nadine”

Lorna Sumner: “I never thought when I joined the gym that I’d be someone who paid extra for PT.
Nadine is the reason that I do…………She took the time to work through assessing my needs fully, checking my fitness levels and asking me about my aims to build tailor made sessions that have enhanced my rehabilitation and health. She encourages me beyond my mental limitations to reach physical achievements I didn’t think were possible. She boosts my morale and assists me to set new goals and uppermost gives me the push I need when I am slacking, but allows me the respite I need when I have worked hard. I know full well that I wouldn’t be as fit or as involved in the gym as I am without her.”

Petra Dolphin: “Nadine has been my personal trainer for 2 years and more recently my masseuse when I’m aching from too much exercise or just need a bit of relaxing tlc. In both areas she is outstanding. My PT sessions are challenging but always fun and varied. My strength and flexibility have massively increased and I now have a leaner and more toned body shape. Her massages are amazing and a cut above the rest!”

Belinda Munro: “Nadine is simply the best – she’ll push you as hard as you want to go and is brilliant at judging the right exercises for the right time. She is very versatile and can lead you in any area of fitness. She also leads by example – her own fitness and health clearly being very important in her life.  But best of all you can have fun training with Nadine – she has a great personality that keeps you laughing along with that stretch and tone. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone as a personal trainer. ”

Ingrid Stapple: I have had Nadine doing my PT sessions for several months and have to say that she is very dedicated, knowledgeable and an excellent PT.
Nadine works with you to achieve your goal with great encouragement and passion,giving you the confidence and always with a smile on her face. I have had 1 massage session with Nadine while she was doing her qualification and again this was done with total professionalism and sound knowledge.
Nadine checked that the amount of pressure applied was okay and that I was comfortable throughout the session. Definitely felt the benefit after her massage.

Ellie McCarthy: “I’ve been training with Nadine for about a year and can’t recommend her enough! I am challenged and pushed in every session and, most importantly, she makes working out fun!”
