Tell us about you, Jackie

Hi, Jackie here, founder of ‘Age Drop - Body & Life Transformation Coaching’.

I specialise in helping busy, professional men and women over 35 look fabulous, feel fantastic and love the body they are in!


I am passionate about helping my clients achieve long-lasting results, so along with being a Personal Trainer and Naturopathic Nutritional Therapist, I am also a Behavioural Change and Body Transformation Coach – with over 15 years of experience in the health, fitness and wellness world. In that time, I have helped hundreds of people drop the weight, get in great shape and make permanent, healthy lifestyle changes. Your body is the foundation the rest of your life relies on (otherwise it’s built on a house of cards), so in the process of transforming their bodies, my clients have also massively improved their health and lives.

Are you finding it daunting to start a weight loss, fitness and rejuvenation program and don’t know where to begin? Do you know you need professional help, support and expertise to achieve your goals? Then contact me TODAY to book your consultation and learn how to take your first steps to looking fabulous, feeling fantastic and loving the body you are in! Together we will find out your WHY for taking care of your body, and then we will create and action the plan to take care of the HOW!

Right. What about your qualifications?

  • Certification in Behavioural Change & Body Transformation Coaching – Body Transformation Academy
  • Diploma in Nutritional Therapy – The College of Naturopathic Medicine
  • Diploma in Personal Training, Pre/Post-Natal – CYQ (YMCA)
  • C.H.E.K Exercise Coach & Holistic Lifestyle Coach – C.H.E.K Institute

“Before seeing Jackie I was stuck in a rut with my exercise routine, running 3 miles, 3 times a week and seeing no real change to my fitness or physique. This meant that I found it a chore, I never really enjoyed the exercise I was doing as I saw no results.
The best result by far of working with Jackie is that I discovered a genuine love of exercise that I never had before. Exercising with weights and body weight/resistance exercises mean that I have maintained the same healthy weight for over 5 years. She gave me the confidence to stand amongst the men in the weights section and own it! Jackie transformed not only how I exercise but how I feel about exercise and how often I exercise. It has changed my fitness and physique forever!"

“Having been together since 1999, in 2006 we entered into a civil partnership. At that point in our lives, we were both struggling to keep in shape, with fluctuating commitment to both exercise and a healthy diet. As you can see from our civil partnership in 2006 (wearing pink) that we had piled on the kilos! Right after our civil partnership we both started training with Jackie and over the years she has helped us build a significantly healthier lifestyle.

The best bit of working with Jackie is that she gets that we don’t live to train and diet; she’s patient with us if we fall off the wagon, and helps us think how to get back on it.
Hopefully, our photo from our wedding - when we converted our civil partnership to marriage in 2016 - shows exactly that. At ages 55 and 44 respectively, we both feel in the best shape of our lives! “

“Before starting with Jackie I had at least 3 stone to lose, my knees were hurting when I did long walks and I felt very unfit and unmotivated. At 45 I was really beginning to look and feel my age - or even older!

Working with Jackie has been lots of fun and the best results is that my knees don’t hurt after exercise anymore and I’m doing something I never thought possible - running! I look younger, feel fitter and have dropped four dress sizes!”
