*Appointments and 1:1 Exercise Coaching via Video*

Video Movement Coaching, Rehab and Consultations

Covid19 may have stopped us all in our tracks, but niggles, aches and pains and chronic illness don't go away.

Isolation and lack of support/professional advice can increase pain, fear and inactivity.

Thankfully I'm here to help.

What Covid19 has shown us is how creative we can be and how well video coaching can work. Over the last few months I've been busier than ever and working via video has been brilliant for both me and my clients, keeping us all safe. 

Over video I can offer:

  • 1:1 Clinical Pilates

  • 1:1 Cancer rehabilitation/Exercise session training - one off or ongoing

  • Exercise consultations/running coaching/structure and injury rehabilitation 

I work via WhatApp and Zoom which are super easy to set up. All you need is your smartphone or a computer with a camera. 

Contact me to arrange an appointment.

Pilates Stretches


Welcome. My name is Sarah Russell and I'm a Clinical Exercise Specialist. Think of someone who combines the skills of a fitness trainer/Pilates instructor/physiotherapist with a clinical knowledge of illness and injury.  That's me. And I am so glad you've found me..

My passion is to help people move with more confidence, without pain or fear and to have a happy and healthy relationship with exercise. 

Whether you have a chronic illness, cancer, have just had surgery, you have an injury or niggle or just want to learn to exercise or run in a different way, I'm here to help.

I work with a wide range of clients but tend to specialise a few specific groups:

  • Runners (especially new runners, first time marathoners, injured or burned out runners or returning from injury)

  • People with a diagnosis of cancer

  • People who have had abdominal surgery (in particular stoma surgery)

  • Anyone who wants to exercise alongside managing a chronic health condition

What I do doesn't fit neatly in a box.  I weave together unique skills, expertise and knowledge - gathered over more than two decades - which means I can provide a genuine 'person-centred' service. 

I work with a wide range of 1:1 'virtual clients' all over the world and also offer consultations in my clinic in East Sussex. 

Please get in touch and see how we can work together. Sarah x

Client Testimonials

Sarah is an amazing listener. I came to see her to try and understand why I was constantly fatigued and kept getting ill after running. Sarah helped me understand my entire 'life jigsaw' and together we worked on training methods, recovery and nutrition. Now I have a different approach and treat my body with more respect. I don't get wiped out anymore and know how to use a 'recovery based' training method.

Sarah's professional input has given me back the confidence to push on gradually and become more supple and stronger which has transformed me in outlook in coping with secondary breast cancer.  She is the oil; I was the tin man!

I had stoma surgery and was really scared to do anything.  Sarah showed me how to exercise, do my core rehab and helped me get my confidence back. Her knowledge in this area is second to none. I travelled over an hour to seek her expertise, but I would have travelled the length of the UK for her help.

Brands, organisations and companies I work closely with, recommend and support.

I use Purition as a smoothie for breakfast before a run, or afterwards as a great recovery drink. It's high in protein and is based on real natural food (and it tastes really good too). Also as someone with a bowel condition, it's ideal on days when I'm feeling a little off colour and need to give my digestive system some TLC. It's gentle on my stomach and gives me a slow release of energy.



SOSRehydrate is a different sort of sports drink. It has perfect osmolarity (balance of sugar and sodium), meaning that's it's absorbed by the body properly and maintains optimum hydration status. So much better than sugary drinks and perfect for runners and anyone with an ileostomy.


CovaTec are a UK based Global Medical Devices company. I am proud to have developed the me+recovery programme for ConvaTec. I also really believe in their products and wear the Esteem Synergy mouldable stoma bag and use Niltac remover spray.

Monitoring HRV (heart rate variability) is a fantastic way to learn insights into your training, recovery, sleep and health. I use the HRV4training app with many of my clients and am proud to be a brand ambassador.
