My goal as your personal trainer is to transform your life; to make you fitter, healthier, happier and more vibrant than ever.



Working with me, you will get fitter, stronger, and more athletic than ever before. I will help you achieve your goals, whether it's building muscle or getting svelte and lean. Your fitness goals will be tailored to your exact needs and lifestyle.


On your fitness journey I will ensure you become more mindful, self-empowered, and self-confident; and show you that fitness is a mental medicine as well as a physical one. Health goes beyond the body; as a society, we must focus on improving mental health and self-empowerment.



You will learn how your mind and soul works; how to empower yourself, find purpose in life, and be the best version of yourself - a gift of fitness very few in the industry address or talk about.

Personal Training at a bespoke level


My name is Sophie Thomas, founder of A Model Example, Putney and Kingston based, and I want to help you feel amazing.

So many personal trainers and nutrition coaches ignore your needs, either completely overlooking holistic care and life coaching or ignoring the science-based evidence towards fitness totally! I blend these two components perfectly to empower you, teach you how to be the best version of yourself physically and mentally, and ensure you reach your potential both inside the gym and outside, in the beauty of life. This is a unique take untouched by most people in the industry, but is something I feel passionately about when conducting my services.


"I firmly believe that it is part of our human nature to succeed, achieve and be our most vibrant selves through self-empowerment and self-growth rather than shrinking away and letting negative thoughts or preconceptions hold us back. At A Model Example, not only do I teach you how to be fitter and healthier and reach your goals, but I tackle all holistic areas of your life, so that you improve your mental and spiritual health, and feel ready to take on the world." - Sophie Thomas, Founder of A Model Example.
