Alison Nixon, from Brenchley, was named Kent’s Health Coach of the Year at the Kent Health and Beauty Awards (HABA) held at The Great Danes Hotel in Maidstone on 16th June.
Originally from Canada, Alison has been living with her husband,step-son and step-daughter in Brenchley for four years and has devoted herself to helping the fitness and all-round health of people from all across Kent. She does this by providing personalised fitness and nutrition coaching programmes designed to provide a greater sense of wellbeing, enhanced energy levels, weight loss, control of food cravings and more.
Comments from the judges of the Kent Health and Beauty Awards included “Alison showed an understanding of people’s issues that is now coupled with an understanding of what it takes to build a business” and “I was impressed by the way she wrote about her past, present and future goals. It was truthful, passionate and inspiring”
Always looking to expand her already wide range of qualifications, Alison is currently working towards completing her Level Four Personal Trainer Programme, which will enable her to take referrals from GPs. Her goal is to offer, by the end of this year, a bespoke, specialised programme personalised to the individual, which will offer an entire package covering nutrition, mindset and exercise.
“This award means so much to me. That my commitment and work helping people to become the very best and healthiest versions of themselves has reached this kind of county-wide recognition is testament to all their hard work and effort. I know that by making very small changes, we can have a really positive impact on our bodies and our lives.”
Alison is the Brenchley and Matfield group leader for Women In Rural Enterprise (WIRE) and is co-author of the international best-selling cookery book ‘What’s Left To Eat When The Doctors Say NO To Everything You Love’.
