Our Energised Founder & Head Coach Kim through to the Live Finals on 27th Sept, Woo Hoo!!

A massive, massive thank you to each and every Energised client who nominated our Head Coach,

Kim Ingleby for the Life Kim Ingleby HeadFitness Global Personal Trainer to Watch Award!! We don’t even know who did, viagria but would like to really, really thank you all!!  Kim completed her side of the application the first week she had Weil’s , which proved difficult with all the medication that week… However, last week Energised HQ received an email to say Kim has been short listed to the final 10 for a live judging on 27th September.

Kim says, ‘ I really can’t believe it, thank you so, so much.  This short list is for each and every amazing Energised client I have ever, and do work with.  The achievements you have made in both mind and body, sport & life, is amazing and so rewarding to be a part of. Thank you, I am going to do my very, very best on the Judging Day and I’m looking forward to meeting the other 9 trainers from around the World, the judges and learning from World Experts! Fingers and toes crossed….. ‘
