I'm Kate Staples, former GB athlete, British record-holder in the pole-vault, and 'Zodiac' on Gladiators for 6 years. At the height of my athletics career, I broke my neck during a live arena show - just before I was due to join Team GB at the Sydney Olympics. In spite of serious injury and a long rehab journey, my passion for health and fitness grew and grew.

With over 20 years experience in the fitness industry, I am proud to have launched two successful businesses. Aspire to Greatness offering athletics clubs for kids in schoolswhich runs in over 40 schools across the Home Counties.  Adventure Fitness Camp is an outdoor bootcamp for women which I ran locally for many years and franchised in the UK.  

I hold a Master Diploma in Outdoor Fitness Training, Level 3 Premier Training in Advanced Health and Fitness as well as certification in power yoga, TRX, core training, functional movement and resistance training techniques. Since 2000 I’ve been working as a PT and master bootcamp trainer, guiding my clients towards a healthier lifestyle. In 2013, I co-authored Burn Fat Fast with Patrick Holford which follows my low-GI diet approach with fitness for maximum results. I'm currently studying Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes, as well as Level 4 Stroke Rehabilitation to continue my professional journey. 

Perhaps my greatest achievement are my three children - appreciating what it takes to raise a family as a full-time working mother. The juggle is a constant reminder of how difficult it is to keep consistency in one's life and to prioritise one's health. 

Through working with a diverse group of clients over the years, I have come to realise that everybody is unique, each with their own goals and lifestyle. My programmes have been built on this depth of knowledge and experience - and an understanding of what works to build happier, healthier lifestyles.
