"Life is too short to spend another day at war with yourself"

A female personal trainer in Surrey

I’m Carolyn, a Caterham based, certified female Personal Trainer and the owner of Fitnessentials.


If you’re looking for personal training in Caterham, Warlingham, Purley, South Croydon, Oxted, Godstone and the surrounding areas then it is very likely that I will be able to help you. Even if you do live further afield, then please do contact me as I pride myself on offering a completely bespoke service – I may be able to create a package just for you.


Just as you are more than that number on the scales, at Fitnessentials, you are more than just another client. Fitnessentials offers a friendly fitness and wellbeing experience that puts the personal back into Personal Training. As your Personal Trainer, I create bespoke fitness packages, programmes and training sessions to give you a more personal, friendly experience. No two training sessions are the same. I offer both at home and outdoor fitness sessions plus a food shopping support service if you need a little extra help to steer you away from the biscuit aisle in the supermarket! I’m pre and post natal certified – as a female personal trainer, I know how important it is to look after both you and your baby. So, whether you’re a mum looking to get back in shape after giving birth, an athlete looking to improve their sports performance or looking for weight loss, toning or general fitness, then I have it covered.


I also keep my client numbers relatively low so that I can dedicate more time to each individual in order to help them to meet their goals and live a life full of vitality, energy and happiness. My passion for fitness will become your passion. However, for me, it’s not all just about looking good. I’m also extremely passionate about the mental well-being of both myself and my clients – after all, what the point in looking good if you feel rubbish on the inside?
