SENSIBLE EATING CLUB
No matter what your goal is, eating for health is all about, balance, variety, planning and a realistic approach that works for you.
Your Personal Pathway will give you a selection of menus that you can choose from, together with regular updated recipes, articles and cookery tips and demonstrations, to help you develop long-term eating habits that suit you, your body shape and your lifestyle.
We will give you 6he tools, the knowledge and the motivation and we just ask you to make the commitment.
Mind Matters & Mental wellbeing
Your Mind Matters pathway will help you to recognise and manage stress, teach you resilience and the beauty of living in the moment, and help you develop a positive mindset to make this a long-term more fulfilling journey to total wellbeing. No matter how little time you have
Wellbeing is about having a balance in the various areas of our lives so that we feel good about ourselves and how we are doing. It can be physical, mental, social, personal and means something different to each of us. Find some inspiration from some of our members and their thoughts on what wellbeing means to them
If you want to start each and every day in the right frame of mind or if you have a day when you can’t find the energy to get up and do something physical, then don’t.Take a break, sit down and put your feet up.
Let me reassure you that we have all had similar days with that feeling of no drive to get up and go. Each one of us will have days when we just don’t get it, our biorhythms so low that we question our goals and even the reason why we ever bothered butremember “if you ever feel like giving up always remember why you started”.
So these life lessons, which last no more than 1 minute each, have content aimed at lifting your spirits and are meant to be thought provoking, motivational and revitalising. I invite you to please sit, watch, listen, enjoy, and then let these ‘Life Lessons’ become your Motivational Triggers.
Techniques & Tips
The body is built to move. Muscles help the heart beat, the chest rise and fall during breathing, and blood vessels regulate the pressure and flow of blood. When we smile and talk, muscles help us communicate, and when we exercise, they help us stay physically fit and healthy.
Learn a little more about the movements and exercises, how to do them safely and what they do.for your body.
At Centre Stage Older we don’t agree that oder people should not exercise because it will hurt, or might be dangerous or it uses up whatever strength and vitality is left Centre Stage is about helping you not just to live long but to live well. Its about not accepting the changes that are just due to bad maintenance as you get older.
We will guide you on how to incorporate the right type of regular activity to boost strength, heart health and flexibility to improve mood, memory and wellbeing. All of this will reduce other health risks, together with good nutrition to boost your body’s repair and maintenance.

DR. Kathy Fulcher
I have over 30 years of experience and qualifications in Nutritional Medicine & Weight Management, Sports Physiology & Nutrition, Clinical Exercise Therapy & Rehabilitation, Behaviour Change, Education and Corporate
Health. I have published widely, including 2 books, on a range of exercise, nutrition and health related topics based on my clinical and health-related research, and presented at several international conferences.
I am totally committed to “walking the walk” and will always try out every recipe or exercise i recommend…….
Building on my master’s degree in strength and conditioning, previous work within elite sport, and extensive professional development portfolio within the fitness industry; dating back to when I first qualified in 2006. I diversely combine being a personal trainer with regularly delivering exercise classes, injury rehabilitation treatments and university lectures!
One Interesting Fact: If I didn’t become a fitness coach, I would have pursued a career as either an actor or writer.
I trained as a Yoga teacher with the Life Centre in 2004. I teach Hatha yoga – in other words my classes comprise breathing exercises, yoga postures sequenced in a way that’s safe for individuals and relaxation/meditation.
Becoming a yoga teacher allowed me to be one of the lucky people who gets to have a job that’s also their passion. I’ve seen the benefits of yoga for myself but also others, so what could be a better way to spend
I turned to a career in fitness after retirement from training and performing as a dancer some 25 years ago. I progressed my education in fitness, nutrition and Callanetics with the Institute of Personal training and
the Health Sciences Academy I love eating and working out… for a healthy body & mind! Turning 50, adapting workouts and nutrition for a mature body, taking care of joints and hormones!
I am a fitness instructor and Mum of two and teach a variety of classes from Zumba, Legs, bums and tums, HIIT, rebounding and low resistance classes. I absolutely love what I do and honestly do not feel like I work
a day in my life. My previous jobs as a Red Coat at Butlins, singer and dancer touring hotels in Ibiza and as a qualified primary school teacher has set me in good stead to be a fitness instructor. I feel that being
a fitness instructor has enabled me to pull of the best parts of my previous jobs and put them in to one job, from helping, supporting and educating others to dancing and performing and challenging myself.
I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), and my focus is to help make looking after your mental health accessible and acceptable to all. I offer a
range of emotional and psychological services dealing with addiction, eating disorders, trauma, anxiety and relationship issues, through a dynamic, person-centered approach.
I released a Covid-19 specific mental health first aid kit in 2020, and my first book “Your Mental Health Workout “ in 2021.
Having done my first qualification in fitness in 2010, I continued my fitness journey as a personal trainer, a Clubbercise presenter and brand master trainer, teaching a range of fitness classes.
I also found a way of bringing fitness and charity together by organising fitness parties, which grew into something special and became a big part of my journey.
I can honestly say fitness changed my life, gave me the confidence to do so many things and become the best version of myself. I believe in the power of fitness and I am on a mission to spread this message
My interest in cooking began in my early teens. My mum was my inspiration, with her Mauritian background. My interest continued to grow and I learned about other cultures and experimenting with fusion cuisine.
I later trained and qualified as a chef and I’ve since used my knowledge and experience to teach and educate people of all ages to cook quick, simple and delicious meals.
Having been a competitive athlete I understand the importance of health & wellbeing. I’ve also been fortunate to work with England and UK Athletics managing Conferences & International Team duties at many major events including Olympic and Commonwealth Games.
I began my Pilates journey about 25 years ago as a natural progression from my work as a body therapist and fitness instructor, with comprehensive training in all Pilates equipment as well as specialised areas. I have
just recently completed training courses in Kinesiology, movement therapy and I am delving deeper into the world of Fascia and ‘Anatomy Trains in Motion’ . Outside of Pilates I am also a Yin Yoga Instructor and
a Nutritional Health Coach. When I am not on my mat you will probably find me up the side of the mountain! 🙂
Having much enjoyed yoga for most of my life, I qualified as a Yoga and Pilates Instructor a few years ago, and now teach all levels and practise healthy living. Alongside my professional career as an electrical engineer, I was also an entertainer – singing and playing guitar and keyboards. Born and bred in Liverpool and musically self-taught, I grew up with Merseyside music, and was lucky enough to tour with The Beatles and perform with many celebrities from the ’60s and ’70s. I now enjoy a calmer and more mindful lifestyle.s
Having completed my Master’s degree in Music at Nottingham University, I’ve taught and performed for most of my career, adding complementary therapy training and qualifications along the way! Now practising relaxation techniques, meditation and mindfulness, I have more recently enjoyed developing my creative skills and expressing myself with art and crafts.
Together with my partner, Lawrence, we offer a variety of classes combining our skills, knowledge and experience to share with others the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle. We also love to communicate via music, performing and offering music therapy sessions, particularly to vulnerable groups.
Having always loved health, fitness and exercise, I trained initially as a beauty and massage therapist in 1987 before taking my Exercise to Music qualifications in 2000. Since then I have undertaken numerous other courses including indoor cycling, step, stability ball, BodyPump, aqua and exercise for seniors.
I enjoy teaching a wide variety of classes and have more recently discovered the benefits of seated exercise – one of my proudest moments as an instructor came recently when one of my ‘golden girls’ – an 89yr old participant was able to get rid of her walking stick as her strength and balance had improved so much! My other proud moment was being asked to take part in one of Mr Motivator’s videos.
As a Chartered and Health Care Professions Council registered Physiotherapist, my primary client base have musculoskeletal conditions including sports injuries.
I also work in GP surgeries as a First Contact Physiotherapist. and am accredited by the Acupuncture Association of Physiotherapists.
As a Fitness Professional, I have been working within fitness for over thirty-five years as an Advanced level Instructor, Instructor Trainer and Presenter, both nationally and internationally My own sports involvement has been as an International Sports Aerobics and I was a professional windsurfer many years ago.
I started doing Pilates nearly 20 years ago when I was training to dance in NYC. Through dancing (and I used to skydive), I was putting my body through a lot and pilates opened my mind to the strength and support I could feel when working from a point of control, breath, focus and connection.
I’ve been teaching for 17 years now and have added to my qualifications with pre/postnatal pilates, pelvic floor health and disfunction, Pilates through menopause and I’m also a breast cancer exercise specialist.
I have a lovely studio in Norwich and I’m a sole parent to a gorgeous little boy.
My background in fitness spans over 20 years, since graduating with a Sports Science degree. I really enjoy helping people get started or return back to exercise while making it enjoyable. So do hope to keep you on track too.
Over that time I’ve provided Personal training and numerous exercise classes from kickboxing, Nordic walking, yoga and pilates through to my most recent qualification as an Otago Exercise Leader within my NHS role. I mostly teach bodyweight exercises with a combination of yoga, pilates with the occasional kettlebell!
I have worked in the fitness industry for over 13 years. I am a qualified aerobics, gym, circuits, HIIT and children’s fitness instructor. I am a personal trainer, a GP exercise referral instructor and pre/post-natal fitness instructor. I also teach ballroom, cheer and dance fitness which is great fun. I have recently qualified to teach and assess the next generation of fitness instructors as I am always trying to develop myself as well as others. I have trained a wide range of people from age 4 – 94 and I love every minute. I strongly believe exercise is the key to a happy, healthy life and most importantly it should be enjoyable.
I previously worked in NHS with focus on prevention and early identification of health problems (all ages) and am an experienced teacher and trainer. I have a Masters in Public Health (Health Promotion) with a thorough
knowledge and understanding of behaviour change in health promotion and disease prevention.
