Charlee Piggott

Nutritionist

About Me

Hi, my name is Charlee, I am a Nutrition and Health graduate and registered Nutritionist.

After personally experiencing the remarkable affects appropriate nutrition can have, I decided to help others find freedom from weight problems and health conditions through the power of food! I am passionate about exposing myths while educating people how to eat real, healthy foods in a manner that is scientifically proven.

As a result of completing my degree and working in a health food store, I have developed a vast range of skills and an understanding of various aspects of clinical, sports and public nutrition including firm foundations in biomedical science and human physiology. This led me to embark on my own study focusing on my specialist subject “Diets followed by women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome”. This also gave me the unique opportunity to work as a research assistant for Roehampton University.

Here at Zen personal training I aim to examine the larger picture of an individual’s health, lifestyle and eating history in order to provide the most comprehensive nutrition plan to achieve the results they desire.

Qualifications

My training specialties and qualifications include:

  • Roehampton University, BSc Nutrition and Health (Hons)
  • AfN Registered Nutritionist (Association for Nutrition)
  • Research assistant for Roehampton University – focusing on a global investigation into the eating behaviours of women with PCOS

Studies include:

  • “Are women with PCOS satisfied with the dietary advice they receive?”
  • “Pathways for PCOS: Mapping treatment and referral routes for women diagnosed  with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome”.

About Me

Hi, my name is Sue. I trained in the UK and have over 17 years of musculoskeletal physiotherapy experience in both the NHS and private sectors.

I have a Masters in Sports and Exercise Medicine and have worked for professional teams such as London Broncos RLFC, Saracens RUFC and The Great Britain Rowing Team. Working in these teams has cemented my belief that a multidisciplinary collaborative team approach enhances recovery from injury.

I am especially interested in helping people change their individual running style to reduce injury risk and prevent injury recurrence.

About Me

‘Health and fitness isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life!’

Fed up of working endless hours for a corporate finance machine I needed something which would ignite passion within me and give me a real purpose again.

Although I come from a rugby and triathlon background I possess many different qualifications enabling me to help a variety of people regardless of fitness levels.  So, whether you are looking to tone up, lose weight, gain muscle mass, increase speed, improve core stability or just looking for that weekly fitness blitz then sign up to Zen Boot Camps and get the results you desire.
