This program not only teaches you how to lose fat, but actually keep it off without the need to count calories or start another diet. This will be the LAST program you need.

FFLA combines my very best fat loss strategies and moderation techniques, I know how miserable restricting yourself can feel so I created a program that enables you to lose fat effectively, whilst still eating all those foods you enjoy.

As a kid and teen, I was overweight and I started my first diet at the age of 11.

I proceeded to spend the next 15 years chasing a goal weight, and jumping on EVERY diet which promised me results.

What I’ve realized since working within the health and fitness industry is this:

The diet industry makes $20 billion per year because you keep going back for more.

With ninety percent of diets failing, and women starting FOUR diet plans per year it’s no wonder the industry is worth so much.

I created FFLA because this is the EXACT type of program I needed a decade ago, and it wasn’t available. I wanted to lose fat, and I wanted to feel better in my skin, I didn’t know where to start and everything I tried seemed so hard and unsustainable.

This is what makes Female Fat Loss Academy different, I don’t want you coming back four times per year.

Together we will create a unique plan so that you can:

  • Create the body you’ve been imagining  lighter, leaner and more toned.
  • Stop questioning your food and exercise choices again – instead you will know EXACTLY what works for you and stop trying everything that doesn’t.
  • Create an effortless healthy lifestyle – you and I both know that when you overthink things it becomes frustrating and you fail, which is why so many “diets” don’t work.
  • LOVE your new way of healthy living – create delicious fat loss friendly meals [at home or restaurants] and workouts which are fun and don’t consume your life, but are actually time saving!
  • Give yourself permission to put your health first and live beyond your goals – push beyond the belief that you can’t and surprise yourself! 

What women are saying about Female Fat Loss Academy:


During FFLA you will:

  • Lose up to 10lbs of fat and feel lighter, healthier and more confident in your own skin so that you can start to live the life you’ve been dreaming of.
  • Spend LESS time exercising and create MORE change using specific fat loss workouts. These will build muscle, strength, burn fat and change the shape of your body – something which is not possible with traditional diets.
  • Learn how to lose fat, maintain your weight and still have ALL the foods you LOVE…think wine, cheese, chocolate, bread – yes all those foods you’ve been told are ‘bad’ are available to you with FFLA!
  • Understand what nutrition labels actually mean, beyond calories and colours, so that you can feel 100% confident when shopping and choosing quick and convenient foods.
  • Feel lighter, healthier and leaner. You will be less hungry, have more energy and reduce your cravings so that you can leave all the weight loss stress in the past and start living your healthiest life and never have to worry about your choices again.

What are you waiting for? 

If not now then when?

If you’ve said Yes, Yes, and YES, then complete this contact form and we’ll get on the phone to make sure this is the right program for you. 

Who is FFLA for?

It is for women who are ready to ditch dieting and finally get the weight loss results they want. During FFLA I will be taking you through specific anti-diet fat loss strategies which will help you to burn fat, reduce hunger, curb cravings and say buh-bye to starting over!

This program is for women who have more than 30lbs to lose. FFLA is a fat loss focused program, and my aim is to help you start losing fat during the program and enable you to automate the way you eat and move so that it feels effortless.

FFLA is for women who want to learn how to create their own healthy lifestyle and quit dieting. One of the great things about this program is that whilst we cover a monthly topic, you get to work at your own pace, it is an individual and personalized program. It’s 100% about you. I’m with you EVERY step of the way to ensure you feel confident and comfortable with your progress.

It’s for you if you are ready to take action and challenge the ‘norm’ of dieting. Spending time focused on yourself is a requirement of FFLA, getting ‘selfish’ is important because to make changes you need to consider how you fit into your lifestyle. You cannot ignore your health and expect change. This program challenges the ‘norm’ of dieting, but diets haven’t worked and that’s why you’re here – right?!

Who is FFLA not for?

The academy is not for you if you’re looking for a cookie cutter diet plan, and need to be told exactly what to eat and when. I provide healthy eating strategies which are also fat loss friendly, but I will not be telling you EXACTLY what to eat. I don’t believe in that this is a sustainable way of living, because at some point you’ve got to do it alone. Instead, I will enable you create lifestyle which feels great 365 days of the year, and help you to go beyond your goals.

FFLA is not for women who cannot commit to 4-months of coaching. The academy is a 4-month program because this is the minimum amount of time it takes to embed healthier habits and get to grips with letting go of diets.

The academy is not for you if you aren’t ready to get started right away. With FFLA, there is no waiting around. Within 24 hours of you enrolling I will be in touch with you to book your first coaching call. So if you are looking are not 100% committed to this process, please do not enrol.

This isn’t for you if you’re looking for quick results. Whilst you will lose fat during FFLA, this is about creating a lasting solution BEYOND month four. Each lady who enrolls in FFLA will get different results, it is an individual program and like anything your results will depend on your willingness to ditch the diets and adopt healthier strategies.

What women are saying about Female Fat Loss Academy:


You can keep trying the same diets and hope that one day it will actually work.


 It’s your call, but don’t ever say you weren’t given the opportunity to make change a thing in your life – this is your opportunity.


“I really want to join FFLA but money is a little tight right now”

I totally understand, but what I’ll ask you is why investing in your health right now is not a priority? If you’ve tried numerous diets, then you’ve spent money, energy and time on something which hasn’t worked.

This investment is about making your health a priority and spending a short amount of time learning about yourself and making progress so that you don’t need to invest money in short term diets.

“I’m skeptical that this will be different”

I don’t blame you for being skeptical, because when you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked for you, just starting something is scary. FFLA is different because I have created something which challenges the ‘norm’ of weight loss and dieting. During FFLA I actually encourage you to stop counting calories and spend more time taking part in leisurely activities instead of pushing so hard to get results.

I will be with you every step of the way, and this is why our 1:1 calls are such a critical part of the coaching process, they allow us to regularly troubleshoot your progress and ensure your diet is working for you. This is not a cookie cutter diet plan, it’s a customised program for you and this is what makes FFLA so different to anything you’ve tried before.

“I don’t have 30lbs to lose, can I still join?”

Of course you can join the academy, but it is important to remember that this program is about creating a long-term solution.

So, if you have less than 30lbs to lose, but want to improve your health and can commit to 4-months of coaching then this program is for you.

“Four months isn’t that long, and I have a lot of weight to lose. Will I keep losing weight after the program?”

You’re 100% spot on 4-months is a short amount of time, but it is enough time for me to provide you will all the tools you’ll need to continue losing fat beyond FFLA.

This is why FFLA is different, it’s not just about you losing fat, but actually learning how to continue beyond your goals and sustain and maintain your weight.

You will find that so much of your body change will not just be about what you eat and how you move, but rather how you treat yourself.

“Can I try it out and if it’s not right get a refund?”

You will not be able to try out FFLA because we start coaching straight away and you will be receiving a lifetime access to my online workout and recipe portal therefore once you have invested, there are no refunds given.

If you are on the fence about joining the academy then I ask you to get in touch with me so that we can chat, and figure out if it’s right for you.

Just email me and we will have a chat!

Once you’ve enrolled, you will receive an email straight back from me confirming your payment, enrolment and letting you know exactly what will happen next. Coaching will be starting ASAP, we are going to hit the ground running – can’t wait to get started with you!
