“I was 17.5 stone (245lbs) 47 inches round my waist. I had purchased a treadmill and weights, I tried various YouTube workouts and nothing was working. I started the 8 week Simple Healthy Living DIY programme and week one was easy to slot into my life, week 2 and 3 were challenging for me. Then I started to feel less tired, less groggy and irritable and more energetic. By the end of the 8 weeks my weight was 16 stone (224lbs) I had got my waist down to 42 inches. This was amazing as I only cut refined sugar and hadn't been on a diet. I learned life-long healthy habits on this course. It was the best health investment. Charlene is just amazing. ”Declan
“Charlene really got me started, with her unfailing optimism and encouragement and completely non-judgmental attitude, and of course her amazing teaching skills and expertise. I still hear her lovely Canadian voice in my head when I think of ‘not bothering’, so her influence has been as lasting as it was instrumental.”Kirsten G.
“I loved Charlene's enthusiasm! She gave really practical info which made me feel I could actually adhere to something.”Jacquie Boyd-Coleman
“This January I started the online Simple Healthy Living DIY health and fitness program. I had for a year done the same routine at the gym, so the programme changes were just what I needed. It was such a simple workout to slot in to my existing gym routine and within 3 weeks my tummy was noticeably better and flatter. Every week I had different challenges making the program fun. I started to use the outdoors for exercise and loved this. I even took up jogging on my rest days. By the end of the 8 weeks I felt amazing, on top of the world. ”Angela L
