Quarantine Strong

maintaining physical & mental health

during lockdown.

Our mission with this project 

2020 has been a tough year for everyone small businesses and big businesses are feeling the strain. As individuals, we have had to place our lives on hold and miss out on lots of activities. We have seen a decline in physical activity as a nation But those suffering from mental health have been hit hard. as we approach a second lockdown we want to do our bit. We are looking to create an online community where individuals will have access to a variety of fitness programs which can be done at home from no kit to small amounts of kit. They will also receive 3 health meals and recipes each day that they can cook at home. But most importantly a place to just chat all things health and fitness and support each other during this difficult phase. The cost of the community is £4.99 one-off fee with 100% of the money going to mental health charities and we will continue the community until the lockdown ends. So let's end quarantine period stronger than when we started. 

Katie Ball

Head Coach of PSW

About me

I am a strength and body composition coach located in Manchester City Centre. I transitioned into coaching following a short career as a qualified Adult Nurse in the National Health Service.  For me, the career move was a ‘no brainer’. After all, prevention is better than cure. Therefore, I now help individuals improve their health and lifestyle through movement, strength training, lifestyle management, habit change, education and building a strong mindset. I believe a strong mindset is fundamental to the achievement of any meaningful change or goal attainment, and this is always the pinnacle of the coaching I provide. 

I have a strong belief that you can do anything you set your mind to, and I tested and proven this with my own health, body transformation journey, athletic endeavours and career change into coaching others. 

My passion to get as naturally strong as I could lead me down the path of competitive Strong Woman. From my very first Novice competition in November 2017 to the present day, I have become 2x England’s Strongest Natural Woman (U65kg), 3rd and 2nd In Britain’s Strongest Natural Woman (U65kg) and 2x Top 3 placing in the World Heavy Events (WHEA) World Championship. 

As a coach, I feel it is important that you have ‘walked the walk’ to be able to support others with their goals. That’s why I am passionate to help other Women attain their strength goals, through education, empowerment, encouragement and leadership. 

I encourage women to use their training to build strong, resilient healthy bodies and mind not only to support their training goals but for personal development and growth.

Athletes don't perform random workouts neither should you. 

Athletes don't go to the gym to workout they go to the gym to train. They have a specific plan to follow with specific goals that's why they get results. For you to make constant progress training must be waved with increasing difficulty to force your body to adapt. That exactly what we do best we train athletes. I know what your thinking "but I'm not an athlete" The needs of an Olympic athlete and someone who has no training experience differ by degree not kind. What this means is to have a fit, strong athletic body that not only looks great but is also just as functional the type of training isn't different to that of an Olympic athlete, the difference is the degree of the training how much intensity how much frequency etc. So if you want to look like an athlete you have to train like one. We help you take ownership of your training and make real progress instead of doing a random bunch of workouts without any real foresight.
