The Fit Weigh was established in 2016 by me, Venetia Howes. Prior to this, I enjoyed a long career in marketing but soon realised that I wanted more. After finally getting into the best shape of my life after years of trying,  I knew then that I wanted to follow my passion for health and fitness and teach other women how to reconnect with and fall in love with their bodies and become the best versions of themselves.

“Dear Venetia, what an amazing
6-week journey it has been. One that has ‘re-coded’ my healthy life plan. The results have been evident and that I will be forever grateful to you. I was at such cross-roads where nothing was working before we met. I felt so desperate. But now I feel wonderful because I have achieved overall well-being. I will highly recommend you and your programme to anyone who is in a similar situation to what I was in.”

From Cherry (65) 

“I ate badly and had no balance.
I ate small meals and always felt hungry. I did not have enough meals. I was so disappointed in myself for getting to this state before meeting with Venetia. I felt that the process has been very informative and enjoyable. I have achieved the knowledge on correct food choices and now know that there is a healthy substitute for everything. I feel very motivated and confident about this programme. I would recommend this programme to others. Venetia is easy to chat to and makes suggestions on better options. She explains everything in simple terms which is easy to understand. She is very motivating and supportive.”

From Bronwyn (49)

“I was feeling generally unfit and overweight. I was fed up knowing that I could do better. Working with Venetia was very enjoyable experience with time for insightful discussions. I found her support very helpful and motivating. I feel much healthier and fitter. I'm exercising more and I’ve lost weight. I feel great! Venetia is very professional and supportive. She coaches you to be insightful about the choices you make. The things I have learnt have been of huge benefit. Thank you!”
