Redirecting your life, for good

The Mind Gap uses habit-based coaching rooted in change psychology and is built on the latest in behavioural science. That means no restrictive meal plans, no fixed workout programmes and no removed food groups. Instead, we’re here to help you upgrade your thinking using mindfulness and habit-building techniques.

What we won’t do is…
  • tell you what to eat.
  • tell you when to eat.
What we will do is…
  • introduce daily habits so you eat well every day, no matter what.
  • help you uncover what works for you, in your unique set of circumstances.
  • provide you with skills you’ll carry with you, long into the future.
  • offer relevant lessons and assignments that will explore your schedule, priorities, belief system, food preferences and food intolerances.

The Mind Gap is powered by ProCoach (in partnership with Precision Nutrition).
Precision Nutrition is an amazing Canadian company that’s helped over 100,000 people lose weight, while ProCoach automatically delivers an online nutrition and lifestyle curriculum that helps you:

  • Practice new eating habits
  • Troubleshoot your biggest challenges
  • Stay consistent, motivated and accountable
  • Radically improve your nutrition, lifestyle and health

The Mind Gap uses a combination of these tools to bring you an online coaching platform that delivers daily personal support through the power of the web.

Like any other coach, we’ll answer questions, offer encouragement and track progress though a special dashboard, using Webinars, Videos, Articles & Emails

We take out coaching very seriously, which is why we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you work with us for 30 days and feel like online coaching isn’t a good fit, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund for your first month and require no additional payments.

Our entire business is built on getting results for our clients. If you invest in us, then you can be confident that we’ll invest in your success and satisfaction.

Yes and no. We think it’s great you are getting hands on coaching, however you might want to consider our online coaching package. This isn’t available for just anyone as we need to know you are committed to the programme. I have been a personal trainer for 8 years so I understand how well this programme would compliment your training sessions. Just let us know and we’ll see if we can integrate the two.

In order to get the best results possible, we have a 3 month minimum commitment. Remember, we are playing the long game here. We don’t follow fads. We focus on bringing health and fitness into your life so it works no matter how hectic or difficult your life gets. Making long lasting, meaningful change takes time. That is why we ask for a 3 month minimum.

After the first 3 months, we will continue to coach you for as long as you need. Our clients enjoy having someone they trust so the majority stay for the whole year, if not longer in some cases!

In most cases, yes, with a degree in Sports Rehabilitation Nicola can work around (and improve) most injuries. When you complete our medical questionnaire we can take into consideration how we can work together safely. As always, consult your doctor before taking part in any exercise programme.

The Mind Gap coaching is great for those who have previously struggled with programmes like Weight Watchers, Slimming World etc. Try something different this time, something that lasts.

This programme is ideal for people wanting to:
⦁ Eat better, without dieting or feeling deprived.
⦁ Get active, no matter what shape you are in now.
⦁ Ditch the food rules, dropping the fad diets and conflicting advice.
⦁ Build fitness into your life, without it taking over.
⦁ Achieve, and maintain, your goals, even when life gets busy.

You will end up:
⦁ Losing the weight/fat you haven’t been able to shed for years.
⦁ Building physical strength and confidence in your body.
⦁ Gaining mental confidence, no longer hiding your gifts and talents.
⦁ Letting go of food confusion, learning what to do, how to do it.
⦁ Getting off the diet roller coaster once and for all, and never looking back.

Imagine a life where you can…
…feel physically and mentally strong, capable of taking on any challenge without worrying that your energy levels or body weight will get in the way.
…run around with your kids, or grandkids, without feeling pain, winded, or tired; and you can do it again the next day.
…excitedly book a beach vacation without wondering how you’ll look (or feel) in a swimsuit, walking along the beach.
…look forward to having your picture taken without wondering “who’s that person, and when did I start looking like that?”
…feel like food is your friend, not your enemy, and never diet again.

The Mind Gap coaching is not for figure or fitness models, professional bodybuilders or high level athletes training for a particular sport. It’s also not for people who already have all the accountability they need.

If you rarely struggle to maintain consistent exercise or eating habits, then we are not a good choice for you.

What our clients say

“Brilliant all round trainer, with expert knowledge in PT, nutrition, massage, yoga and ‘know how’ in sorting your head out. You got me pain free in about 3 months, made me cry because it was so great and when my days were tough a walk and a talk did the trick. A year of training with you was a real journey to mend my body. You know how to push your clients and work hard to reach goals but understood pain and how to manage it. Your new clients will be in safe capable hands.”

Helen Rankine

“I contacted Nicola at my gym as I needed help to get fitter an I had lost interest in going to the gym. We met and she assessed my fitness and we decided on a plan. From the first moment we met I knew we were going to get along… she really encouraged me back to it and regular sessions 3 times weekly soon got me back in shape. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. Sign up with Nicola and you are guaranteed results!”

Tony Stingemore

“Happy new year. Despite dreading most of our sessions and wondering why the hell I am putting myself through them I am genuinely looking forward to our sessions this year. Maybe I am just caught up in the New Year excitement but I am feeling really positive and confident that I can make myself feel fitter and healthier. You’re very good a your job and luckily for you you’re very hard to dislike!”

Juilanne Huges

“Nicola was my PT for nearly two years, she is fantastic at her job. I had major back surgery on my back that made running and other exercises difficult. Working with Nic has enabled me to run and I can do most things that I enjoy pain free. I feel more confident and better about myself and my posture has greatly improved. Our sessions were hard and challenging but also great fun, apart from the ball!”

Jane Walton

“Nicola not only changed my body, she also changed my mind. She helped me prioritise my goals and make sure I put myself first. This not only helped me personally get through a very stressful period in my life, it also resulted in amazing results in our PT sessions.  I saw great results and Nicola knew exactly the type of exercise I would enjoy and also gave the best results for what I wanted to achieve. I never left a session feeling disheartened – I was a hero every day. Thank you for giving me the confidence in my abilities to continue my fitness and personal journey.”
