Just writing this before I head off to the gym to do my HIIT session.
I've experienced many benefits from having Denise as my coach. Not least, her energy, passion, insight and personal achievements inspire me beyond words but also she really shoe horned me out of a bit of a rut that I found myself in during the pandemic.
I have a long history of exercise that includes weight training, triathlon, marathon running, climbing, dance and open water swimming but during the pandemic I sort of lost my mojo. Life events, isolation and menopause conspired to make me tired, slumpy and strangely lacking in confidence. My body was changing and I didn't like how I was feeling at all. A knee injury meant I could no longer go running and I simply lost my drive and motivation. I was nervous about picking up weights again and even going to a gym as I worried about making my injury worse or just simply not knowing what to do with the changes my body was undergoing.
A session in the gym and a HIIT session on my decking with Denise got me fired up again. Muscle memory fired up again and I started really enjoying the sessions again. Not just feeling physically fit but having that emotional/ mental outlet that was so much needed in this challenging life stage in which I was navigating a teenager, elderly parent, running my own business and my changing physiology. Thank you so much Denise! Off to the gym now!

I've been very active for most of my adult life, but I realised most training programmes out there cater predominantly to men. It was refreshing to come across Denise Yeats. She understands that women, especially of my age, have unique needs and goals when it comes to fitness.
Her approach isn't just about exercises; it's holistic and personalised. Denise takes the time to truly understand my individual strengths, limitations, and aspirations. She doesn't offer a one-size-fits-all solution; instead, she tailors the programme to suit me perfectly.
What sets Denise apart is her dedication to creating a fitness plan that aligns with my lifestyle and considers my specific requirements. Her emphasis on adapting sports coaching to suit women like me has been a game-changer. The programme isn’t just effective; it’s enjoyable and motivating. Denise doesn't just focus on the physical aspect; she addresses mental wellbeing and overall health. I really appreciate her guidance, support, and the results I'm achieving under her coaching.
If you're seeking a coach who understands women's needs in fitness, values personalisation, and takes a holistic approach, I highly recommend Denise Yeats Coaching. It's been a fantastic journey towards a healthier, happier me, thanks to her!

With Denise’s help I discovered how to find empowerment in my fear, how to tap into my inner potential, how to celebrate every step along the way, how to see victory in every stroke on the bike. I found resilience, and the most important of all, I found the joy that I was seeking, the confidence to simply try, the desire to try many times and get it wrong many times until one day I get it right. Denise focused a lot of time at the beginning to make sure I went deep into my motivation, to understand how my mind operates, what to do when I have doubts, how to keep me on track.
Alongside developing my mental strength, Denise has provided me with a very holistic approach to training, full of creativity and variety to keep it interesting whilst developing all the necessary elements. From nutrition, to age related (peri menopausal) issues, stretching, TRX, yoga, mobility, HRV, there is always something new to explore and learn whilst keeping the main theme consistent.
I was thrilled to have ridden 50km in 2017. In 2022 I completed the Mallorca 225, and I know I wouldn’t be here without Denise.
Thank you for helping me find my inner hero Denise. I will be forever grateful.

Denise has been coaching me in triathlon after I came across her website.
The training sessions she provides are progressive, well structured and completely individual to me based on how I feel from week to week.
As an older athlete who was prone to injury Denise has ensured I can train smarter, not harder without constantly getting injured and suffering setbacks. Very impressive!
Denise gives weekly feedback and this has helped change my mindset on the best time of day to train for maximum benefits and recovery.
Denise is extremely approachable, fun , motivating and is actually interested in helping me smash my goals.
I highly recommend Denise for anything from novice triathlon events to full Ironman distances and any swim, bike, run, and strength training.
Denise is 'on it!'

The best thing I’ve done for myself in years was to contact Denise!
Whilst chatting with a cycling friend she mentioned she’d been working with a coach to help her cycling and strength/conditioning. As a keen ‘mature’ cyclist I found I was in a rut so followed suit and contacted Denise for a chat to talk about her offerings.
During that first call I knew that Denise was the right person to help me. Denise took time to understand that I wanted to be stronger and fitter on the bike. The weekly bespoke comprehensive training plan in training peaks was ideal. Denise is a brilliant communicator and collaborative as to what I could manage each week. Her support and encouragement for the past six months has made a huge difference. I’ve just returned from the best ladies cycling camp where the coaches remarked that I’m a ‘changed cyclist’.
Thanks Denise I couldn’t have done it without you!

Cycling has been my preferred exercise for over 10 years, but I had never had any professional coaching, so working with Denise was a new experience for me. The weekly plans and feedback are all really helpful in helping me achieve cycling goals, building both strength and endurance. Knowing Denise reviews all my workouts feels motivating and supportive. I also learnt lots about my body, recovery, fuelling and hydration. I especially appreciate her focus on women in mid life and the challenges that hormonal changes bring us. Denise has a holisitic, empathetic approach to coaching which I really value.
