Why is it important to notice your niggles?

In my experience, niggles and aches often lead to further problems. They very rarely just 'go away'. For example, if you have a knee niggle that you feel every now and again. This may indicate to you the precursor of a potential knee injury or even arthritis. If you do nothing about it, it could lead to a fully painful knee that starts to really impact in your daily life. Why wait till this stage? Why not nip it in the bud now and make that joint stronger leading to a better quality of life? If the last few years have taught us anything, it is to look after our bodies proactively rather than reactively.

I have been surrounded by exercise since I was in secondary school. It led me to do a degree in Sport & Exercise Science in 2004. During that time I got the opportunity to join Glenfield hospital for a placement year working with people with lung and heart issues within a multidisciplinary team. After gradation I worked in the NHS for over 10 years as a rehabilitation assistant. I worked with many teams during this time, the main one being A&E for three years. I have come across all types of injuries, health conditions, long term or short and seen the effects when those niggles and aches are left unnoticed. This is why I am so passionate about what I do and teach exercise to help prevent people landing in A&E or in hospital.

Happy client


"I am so happy to have found Kam – she is kind, approachable and thoughtful and, most importantly, really knows her stuff! I've had a difficult relationship with exercise in the past and found much of what I have tried intimidating and off-putting. Kam's accessible approach, which focuses on showing up and doing what you can (with no judgement), makes it much easier for me to make the commitment to exercising and making incremental improvements to my health. Thank you!"

"I've been attending Kam's 15 minute workout sessions for quite a few weeks now. They're brilliant at getting me moving - I'm a copywriter so spend a lot of time at my desk.
She's also helped me think about the different parts of my body-" 

Susan Hammond


" The great thing about the 1st Step online exercise programmes is that I can work through the exercises at my own pace and in the comfort of my own home with the full support of Kam all the way. The questions and LIVES make me really think about how I use my body and how to avoid causing more problems"
