I really didn’t believe that exercise could be fun, yet Clarice has made her classes a fun, social event, letting everyone work at their own pace, enjoying exercise. Yet she gives a gentle push each lesson to make you feel the benefit from her classes.


I have known Clarice for many years and have been lucky enough to have used her sports massage services. I have found her to be very knowledgeable, friendly and a great role model.

Clarice is part of our local running club, and so I have seen first-hand how much hard work and effort she has put into achieving her own goals, and how far she came.

Her enthusiasm and focus would be a great asset to anyone looking to her for help. I would definitely use her again and would not hesitate to recommend her.


My Pilates ability really moved forward in training with Clarice. She is excellent at encouraging you to improve and challenge your abilities within a safe and friendly environment.

As a result, my core strength and flexibility improved no end, and her classes are always fun


I have been training with Clarice for over a year now, and I have loved all my sessions. Clarice perfectly tailored my sessions to fit my ability – I was returning to exercise after a running injury, where I thought my running days were over.

Clarice started introducing short runs into our weekly sessions and before I knew it I was comfortably running 5km. Within a year, I have completed a couple of 10km, including one where I was dressed as Father Christmas!

The sessions have given me the confidence and strength to take my running to the next level and I have recently completed a 10-mile run. I highly recommend Clarice because she is a very motivated and positive personal trainer. Take the next step and book a session with Clarice you will find her energy is infectious.


Working with Clarice has opened my mind to what I can achieve and taught me an important lesson in my approach to life in general; by being patient and working hard, I can achieve results.

I never thought I would enjoy exercising outside, even in winter, but I love it and can now run further than I ever thought possible. I look forward to my training sessions with Clarice, she has a gentle, encouraging and motivating approach and our training sessions are the perfect start to my weekend! I would definitely recommend her!


After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and having two children, I lost confidence in myself. I started attending Pilates classes with Clarice and realised that my muscles were getting stronger and my fitness was improving.

Clarice is kind and understanding by nature, and her experience helps her relate to people who have an illness or are recovering from an injury. Clarice had to coax me into attending an interval training class as, with my wobbly balance, I didn’t believe I could do it.

Her class was full of people of all shapes, sizes and ages, all trying to achieve their own personal goals, not judging each other. Each week things got easier and I began enjoying the classes.

Clarice has given me the confidence to attend gym classes and go running. After working with her for over a year, I feel more energetic, fit and healthy than I have in years.

I started training with Clarice in late 2015, as I was very unfit and wanted to lose weight and become stronger and more flexible. I was nervous about getting a personal trainer and it was really important to find someone who understood me and I could work with.

When I first met Clarice I immediately felt relaxed and knew that she understood what I wanted to achieve. Also being a mum, she understood the lack of time I had to train.

Clarice pushes me and each session is different and varied. She senses when I am tired or lacking in energy and adapts the session to suit this but other times knows when to push me harder. The sessions are fun and varied and keep me interested. It’s always lovely to see a smiley face at 6am on a dark and cold morning!

For me, one of the big benefits of training with Clarice is her flexibility. She is able to work around me and my commitments, unlike other personal trainers. I would highly recommend training with Clarice.



I’ve been training with Clarice since December 2013. We talked through what I wanted from the sessions, then Clarice put together a training plan specific for me. We meet twice a week at Crystal Palace Sports Centre to work on my cardio and strength training.

I find having a personal trainer has been really beneficial. It’s motivated me and I have seen the results quite quickly. My overall fitness level has increased, I feel stronger and this has translated to better running.

Having Clarice as a trainer has the added benefit that she is a runner herself so really does understand the needs of someone training for a marathon. She is personable, well mannered, attentive, encouraging and she WILL push you. However, I am glad she is definitely not a ‘drill sergeant’ as that would not have worked with me. And, she will flex the training schedule depending on progress and time constraints.

My sessions with Clarice have been great. She has really made an effort to understand my fitness goals and has devised a programme that has allowed me to meet them.

I have also lost 15 pounds in the process. She is also friendly and approachable. I would certainly recommend her.


I loved training with Clarice. When we met I mentioned that I liked being outdoors and that I wanted to learn exercises that didn’t rely on gym equipment. So we would meet in the park where we spent half the session running and half the session looking like mad people, using equipment that she would pull out of the back of her car.

Clarice will take her cue from you in terms of the way you want to exercise and how hard you want to push it. She will make sure you always go beyond what you think you can achieve but without ever taking a bullying approach.

A big part of what makes her an inspiring trainer is her own strength as a person.
