Kim the Trainer
Have we met? Allow me to introduce myself…I am a model, personal trainer, fitness instructor and yoga teacher. Currently based in London I personal train clients both privately and at Eqvvs Personal Training in Knightsbridge. You can find me teaching my signature Tone & OM class at ONE LDN, Fulham. This class carefully utilises strength and conditioning training with yoga techniques that allow you to have the best of both worlds in just one class. The program places a heavy emphasis on balancing the body with functional HIIT training. This is then complemented by a balanced yoga flow. You can also find me teaching HIIT classes at Method Movement, Chelsea. Find my class schedule here.
My training beliefs are that each and everyone of us absolutely has the ability to tone what we own. It’s my goal and my job as a trainer to make you feel that way in your training. To train with me find out more here!
Although now a seasoned Londoner, I was previously a New Yorker. Having spent the best part of 3 years there from 2012-2015, I firmly set my sights on a training career path. I’ve always been super sporty and love spending time helping people. New York helped shape my focus and it was here that I put two and two together and decided on my training career. Anyone who has been to NY knows that the city is always on the front foot of fitness developments. As I do now, there I lived and breathed the health and fitness scene. There I studied for my personal training certification (NASM-CPT), fitness instructing (AFAA) and TRX qualifications. I have since qualified as a NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and am currently studying for my Precision Nutrition Level 1. Now firmly back in London I have completely immersed myself in the incredible (and notably growing) London fitness market, and I can’t get enough of it! People are more motivated than ever to get their bodies to the best they can be. As a trainer its such a wonderful thing to be able to help them along the way.
Kim the Model
An international model I am represented globally with agencies in the US (Wilhelmina), Spain (Francina), Germany (Seeds) and the UK (W Model Management for fitness bookings, MILK model management for fashion and influencer bookings).

Kim the Student
I spent my graduate years at one of my favourite spots on the planet Brighton, England. There I studied for four years at the University of Brighton (including a one year placement) and as such hold a 1st class honors degree in Business Studies and Marketing.
Nowadays most of my days are spent getting sweaty training and teaching others. In my spare time I love rock climbing, boxing, running, yoga and strength and conditioning. I am also a keen traveler, (amateur) chef and self confessed almond butter addict!
