From a young age, I was an active person and regularly played sports - mainly football, tennis and golf. A persistent knee injury slowed me down, and by the age of 18, I was 6ft 3, very skinny and desperate for a new hobby. I decided to get in the gym and start trying to put some muscle on my frame. My real passion for fitness and bodybuilding started then. I guess like most people, it was daunting stepping into a gym for the first time and seeing many experienced people with great physiques. I had no real knowledge of bodybuilding or what it was going to take to build muscle. The one thing I did have on my side was that I had developed some healthy eating habits due to my mum having some heart issues a few years earlier. I believe this is what gave me an early interest in Nutrition, which then developed greatly over the years.
Now, after many years of practice, mistakes, injuries and study, I have made great progress with my physique and fitness. Studying, coaching and developing new habits is what has got me to a point in life where I can make informed decisions that allow me to lead a well-balanced lifestyle.
It's now my passion to help and educate you to achieve your fitness goals quickly, injury-free and in a way that does not stop you enjoying your current lifestyle. My job as your coach is to cut through all the noise and confusion in the fitness and nutrition industry, saving you potentially years of poor results and guiding you on your fitness journey. I use real, evidence-based information from scientific and real-world studies - no gimmicks, fads or celebrity-endorsed quick-fixes. I put many hours into researching this stuff so that you don't have www.*** ;

Hello, my name is Megan and I am the founder of Mind Over Matter Fitness and Nutrition. My main role is currently as a personal trainer; however, my original training is as a nutritionist. I graduated in 2006, from Oxford Brookes University with a 1st class honours in Food Science and Nutrition. I have always had a passion for nutrition, but initial more as a chef, working in a small restaurant for 4 years. I graduated and worked for 6 years in the research field, specialising in Glycaemic Index, Insulinemic Index and Weight Loss. My experiences in research enable me to provide my clients with up-to-date and reliable scientific advice which is proven to work.
Although I have always been an active person I have never been someone that has ever been 'sporty'. I hated PE at school and would do anything to get out of it!! My interest in physical activity and exercise started approximately 17 years ago when my mum was diagnosed with osteoporosis, as such she was told to undertake weight bearing activity. So, in support mum I took up running. I can honestly say that for the first 3 weeks I hated it, I moaned constantly and dreaded every session. Suddenly week 4 seemed easier and I could start to see changes in my body shape, I think this was the moment I was addicted to exercise!
From these humble beginnings I have gone from running 10 mins three times a week to regularly competing in multi-day ultra-marathon events and strength training. I have always been an average runner, however, through sensible training and eating I am proud to say that in May 2017 I came 3rd Female in a 97 mile, 3-day ultra-marathon. This passion for my own training has helped me to become a personal trainer and share my passion for exercise and nutrition with my clients.
I love nothing more than to see people achieve their goals, have fun training and most importantly find a greater confidence in themselves and go on to achieve what they never believed possible.
