  • I like the way Claire engages with everyone, when she is training you can hear the laughter through the walls.
  • Can always make you laugh, even at her own expense and loves her leg-is-lat-ion.
  • My boys and their families are very important to me. It’s really important that I spend time with them and have them round for dinner a few times a week.
  • Training has to be fun, people learn better this way and it is far more enjoyable for me.
  • It has to be on time! I would rather be an hour early than 2 minutes late.
  • I never leave home without my mascara on, I wouldn’t feel complete.
  • Chocolate has it’s place, which is once a day and without fail.

  • Email works best for me, I get a lot of calls and texts while I am training and I can’t respond straight away.
  • If I don’t know the answer to specific questions, I like to research a lot, so please give me time to reply.
  • I need to know that people have received my texts or emails so please reply otherwise I might get anxious.
  • It’s my job to be flexible. Please give me lots of notice if a meeting is inconvenient, this way I can rearrange my diary. I’m a popular girl so…
