Get Lean 8 Week Program

Over the past 4 years of running the 8 Week Challenge at PLAY, we have seen some incredible results. The one thing that I tell people who are interested in signing up is that this is NOT the Biggest loser. It is NOT a quick fix. It doesn’t involve meal replacement shakes or protein powders, no counting calories or weighing portions.

It is about educating people to choose food that help the body thrive while still enjoying a glass of wine and eating chocolate/pizza/donuts (whatever your “happy” food is!), because food should bring joy; we no longer use food to simply keep us alive; food is so much more than the nutrients it contains. Food helps us celebrate, it brings us together, it’s part of our culture, it’s part of our childhood memories. I want people to enjoy food without the guilt.

My goal for the challenge has always been and always will be, getting people back in the kitchen, eating real food and listening to their body, by doing these things, the by product of eating well just so happens to be weight loss, add good quality exercise 2-4 times a week into the mix and amazing things happen!!! 


I am so excited to announce that I have teamed up with the incredible DR JOANNA MCMILLAN, A phd qualified nutrition scientist, practicing dietitian, former fitness instructor, author and a regular on tv,radio and numerous podcasts. I’m a total fangirl because of her no B.S. approach to health and wellness and the emphasis she puts on joy and how it all ties together, makes her the perfect partner to team up with PLAY.

The Get Lean Program is not a DIET, it’s a LIFESTYLE that is easy to maintain while still enjoying life! You don’t have to starve yourself or eat boring, and you certainly don’t have to train 6 or 7 days a week for an hour or more at a time. Nobody has time for that and food should never be boring!!

It gives me great pride to introduce to you the latest challenge winner, Danielle Doyle.

Danielle had not done any exercise for years. Always putting work, kids, husband and house before herself, and had neglected her health and well being, which came at a cost; sore muscles and aching joints from stress and lack of movement, too much time at a desk, weight gain and food choices for convenience rather than health.

During lockdown, she made the decision to sign up and try out the online classes. 

Since starting, she has made incredible lifestyle changes. 


Here is a little snippet of her journey…


New Timetable

After a year of doing Zoom sessions, it’s time for me to press pause and (hopefully) take an extended break from them - while they served a purpose and got us through 2020, I really am more of a face to face trainer. All of the recordings will remain on the Private Facebook page, so feel free to re-watch and workout at your leisure.
