Hi, I’m Bev Thorogood, owner and founder of Floresco Fitness and Fat Loss Coaching.

As a woman of a ‘certain age’ (actually I’m 51 at the time of writing!) I know all too well how difficult it can be to look and feel great when you’re trying to navigate the trials and tribulations of middle age.  Weight loss seems harder, energy levels seem lower, aches and pains seems plentiful and hot flushes, itchy, dry skin, brain fog and tears seem to be the order of the day.

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.  With the right mindset, the right diet and the right amount of activity almost all of the the symptoms of middle age can be dealt with.

In fact, this should be an amazing time in our lives.  Generally the kids are older, we have more wisdom and experience, we’ve made enough mistakes to know what doesn’t work and what does and we’re still young enough to know how to have fun.

It’s really quite a liberating time and we should embrace it with open arms.

Sometimes though, we need a bit of support to help us see things more clearly.

As a fitness and fat loss coach, I specialise in helping women to finally take control of their weight without the need for faddy diets or extreme levels of exercise.

I work with clients to help them deal with the underlying habits that may be stopping them from reaching their weight loss and fitness goals.

I truly believe that the only way to manage weight long term is to change the mindset around the behaviours that lead to weight gain.  Get the head in the right place and the body will quickly follow.

I’ve created a programme of habit changes that build on one another over a 6 month period.  They are sustainable, achievable and effective.

You won’t find restrictive, boring meal plans or rigid diet rules.

The habit changes incorporate into your own lifestyle.  We all have unique lives, unique needs and unique bodies.    That is why ‘one size fits all’ diets don’t work long term

My 12 habit changes create a balance between mindset, nutrition and exercise and are based on the most up to date research around nutrition and exercise science.

Once you’ve mastered these 12 habits, you will never need to embark on another quick fix diet again.
