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


I got into fitness and health since starting my modelling career at age 14, and also suffered severe depression during my late teens. I found that fitness not only transformed my body, but my outlook on life, my mindset, and my mental health too. I want to help people be the best versions of themselves, and realise that training to look better can also become something amazing - they become athletes, both in body and mind.
