Meet Your Transformation Experts


“I'm honestly so so grateful to Adam Kimberley and Sarah-Jayne without them I would not have stayed motivated and wouldn't have smashed my goals.”

Life is a journey that we all start somewhere. It’s great to know where you're going, that's where we come in to help you. But, we do that by remembering exactly where we came from.

We are real people, with real lives, with real results. And we’ve been through all of the pitfalls in the fitness industry so you don’t have to.

We know what it’s like; to starve yourself to lose weight, to be too intimidated to even step foot in the gym, to rebound back and feel like you’re back to square one.

We know how hard it can be when you’ve lost your way, when you put yourself at the bottom of the pecking order and look after everybody else first.

We know how it feels to feel tired and lethargic, with no energy, no drive and motivation.

We know because we’ve been there.

AK Active was founded by Adam and Kimberley. Having both come from entirely different backgrounds, they have fought to be in the position they are in today. As a result of their experiences and challenges faced, they are able to provide a service second to none with an unmatched community to help you feel at your very best in mind, body and spirit.

Our passion to help others drives us, this is embodied in the work of AK Active.

I've helped thousands of ladies, quote -  “feel the best i've felt in two weeks, than what i have in 20 years.”

I was bullied throughout my younger years. I was labelled as “fat” and “ugly” and ended up in a mentally abusive relationship. I knew this wasn't the life I wanted. I finally gained the courage to walk away after my son was born. I had to force a change in my lifestyle to become who I am today.

Now I’m fun, strong, and ambitious, not words I would have once said about myself all those years ago!

I gained the courage to step foot in the Gym for the first time in my mid-20s
(me the girl who got her nanna to write letters to get out of PE at school!)
That day completely changed my life, size 18 to size 0. BOTH unhealthy!

After what I had been through, I knew there was something missing in the fitness industry. I wanted to show that exercise can be fun, I wanted to completely change people’s perceptions on a “new healthy lifestyle” and I am proud to have achieved it with AK Active!

I truly believe the experiences I have been through in life were lessons I had to overcome so I can be here where I am right now, helping thousands of ladies overcome what I had to.

I even suffered from anxiety and depression, and was on prescribed medication. Over the years of developing AK Active with my husband Adam I have built a bulletproof mindset, which has helped me to completely change the way I see life. One of my favourite sayings, “Overcome 6 impossible things before breakfast”, The Mad Hatter! This is exactly what I like to do, find a way through life, so life is exactly the way I want it to be.

Believe, achieve and conquer, i've built my mindset to overcome anything, and surrounded myself with a positive outlook on life,

I was the tall skinny kid in school. 6ft 2 weighing just 9 stones. I was a very self-conscious person to the point where I didn’t even like eating in front of people. If nobody else at the table was eating, then I wouldn’t either!

My teenage years were filled with comments such as, “you need to eat more” and, “there’s more meat on a sparrows knee cap!” - You can imagine what that did for my confidence!

As soon as I turned 16 I joined my local gym, the big scary commercial type. I cancelled my induction three times because I was too nervous to attend. I remember the first time I got to the top of the stairs, and subsequent times after, there was always a huge, intimidating PT staring at me, not bothering to smile or say a word.

Not having a clue what I was doing and very shy, I went on the only thing I knew how to use. I ran on the treadmill for about 45 minutes, of course this was detrimental to my intended muscle building!

When people caught wind of me attending the gym, I was laughed at…

“YOU go to the gym?! You’re too skinny!”

At this point, I could have accepted my fate and given up. I didn’t.
It was the negativity that fuelled me to become the person I am today, and I realised that so many people must have been what I went through. But a lot of those people may have given up, never setting foot in a gym again. I vowed to create a place that was different.

Not only did I discover the right way to gain weight, but I now specialise in losing weight sustainably, too! I'm happy and confident within myself, in my own skin. I learnt how to transform my life.

I started out as a project manager with a degree in engineering. Now, following my successes, I now help others to transform their lives in mind and body with AK Active.


Ever since leaving high school I have always struggled with my weight.

Burying my head in the sand and trying every diet and slim fad going, signing up at gyms and then never having the confidence or will to go.

I had struggled for almost 20 years up to this point and developed a poor relationship with exercise and food.

Until one day I took the step and reached out for help. That help came from AK Active.

In turn this has changed my life from being rock bottom both mentally and physically to now becoming a qualified Gym Instructor something I would never have thought possible, having lost 4 stone within 12 months sustainably and having my life back,

I then took the opportunity to become part of the team here at AK Active. My aim is to help and support others who perhaps need some hope that all is not lost and knowing that somebody like me who at my highest was 122 kilos can change your life.

If I can do it then so can YOU.
