Kay Fletcher

Kay Fletcher is the owner of Kay Fletcher Fitness and she is a well established personal trainer delivering sessions in Ipswich and Kesgrave. In addition to the fitness classes delivered by herself and fellow instructor Kelly, she also delivers nutritional and dietary advice.

Despite the lockdown restrictions, Kay continued to go above and beyond supporting her members and non members to be fit and healthy during a time where it could not have been more important.

Kay delivered daily workouts using Zoom. In addition to the workouts, Kay delivered weekly talks about various health and fitness related topics, hosted virtual coffee mornings and gave access to recorded workouts where people could catch up at a time that suited them best. Kay also offered weekly weigh in's online for clients who were working with her to manage their weight.

In addition to all of the group support, Kay also made herself contactable at all times, offering new and old members the opportunity to ask any questions and discuss any concerns.

"She's inspirational in her attitude, friendly and encouraging in her manner and a total ray of sunshine during every fitness session she conducts online!"

Kay's efforts kept over 160 of her members engaged and active during such challenging times. She even helped to raise funds for the Ipswich Hospital. Whilst the main aim was to help keep members active, during such unprecedented times Kay's support went further than just helping members to maintain their physical health. One member said:

"I suffer with depression and I know that without her bringing together all my friends together (virtually) I would have found this time impossible to cope with."

Another told us:

Kay has literally been a physical and mental saviour not only for me but for my many friends and exercise buddies who are regular attendees of Kay's classes. I have been able to maintain my weight and fitness through the very varied online classes and moreover, personally, because I live on my own, Kay has phoned me on a regular basis to check in and see how I am. I also know, she has done the same for other members who are alone. Kay has gone above and beyond to make this lockdown as normal for her members as she possibly could."

Well done Kay and the team behind Kay Fletcher Fitness. You have clearly had a very positive impact on your local community.
