Kirsty Marshall: Personal Trainer, Body Work-In Coach


Hey, my name is Kirsty Marshall. I am passionate about health and fitness. Being diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME*) at 9 years old and suffering for 7 years, I have come to value the gift of health.

Today, I’ve been fortunate to turn my journey and passion into a thriving profession. Since 2010 I’ve been working as a qualified Personal Trainer, guiding my clients towards a healthier lifestyle.

I have had the opportunity to help a diverse group of clients, from 18 months to 85 years old. I’ve come to realise that everybody is unique, from movement, nutrition, lifestyle, injuries, stress and the list continues. Using a variety of different training methods, nutrition support and lifestyle guidance, I aim to help each of my clients achieve their goals.

I am a firm supporter of mind-body connection and our core being the key to movement. I use a variety of diverse types of training, to deliver innovative and creative workouts that incorporate  core, meditation, balance, yoga, pilates, strength, stretching, functional and cardio conditioning, kettle-bells and TRX as well as injury rehabilitation.

I have trained and studied in the UK and USA. Managing and working on many levels, from onboard Royal Caribbean to many boutique gyms in South Africa. I have had the opportunity to work with some of South Africa’s top fitness professionals and love continuing to learn and grow.

Our bodies were made to move, from our first to our last breath. How we move changes throughout our lives – but we keep moving. Our nourishment is key in supporting a healthy lifestyle. Movement and nourishment work together in supporting our health, combined with our mindset and taking care of our mental health. Our health is an investment we make each day, and the returns, LIFE.
