The Key to Feeling Great About What You Eat (plus a Feel Great Cookie recipe)

Heidi Thornton

Do you want to hear something shocking?….you shouldn't feel guilty eating cookies. Groundbreaking, I know - hear me out.

So often certain foods summon ‘unhealthy’ connotations. ‘Cookie’ is a prime example of this – it makes us think of sugar, chocolate chips and butter. This leads us to label cookies as unhealthy and in turn we feel 'naughty' for having it. I want you to banish these negative associations. 

This doesn't mean I am encouraging you to eat buckets of buttery, sugary cookies, not at all - I am just trying to shift your focus. Why? Well, you’ll see...


About me

Hi my name is Kimberly and I have been working with Genesis Fitness since March 2012.
I am hugely passionate about health and fitness and love being part of this industry.
I started with Genesis in the group fitness department and teach all forms of freestyle including Step, Cycle, Fatburner, Total Body, Tone and Core, Body Blitz and BAT. I also teach all of our signature series which so far includes MF45, BX45 and shockwave. My specialty though is Pilates. I danced throughout my whole childhood and was introduced to Pilates at the age of 10. I quickly fell in love with it and began teaching at age 16 and have been teaching ever since.
Within Genesis I have had many roles since joining including reception and assistant member care and I am currently Group Fitness Coordinator (GFC) and Fitness Division Coordinator (FDC) for Mayfield.
I'm passionate about my club and Genesis so please feel free to contact me any time...
