Alice worked as an Equine Veterinary Surgeon for 17 years before retiring from practice to establish her own health and fitness business in 2019.
In addition to her qualifications in Personal Training and Nutrition, she also has a First Class Honours Degree in Human Psychology and is a Certified Behaviour Change Coach.
Alice specialises in helping people untangle the challenges and confusion associated with diet and exercise to form sustainable habits for a happier, healthier life.
In her coaching practice Alice uses the Tiny Habits Method, pioneered by Professor B J Fogg at Stanford University. This approach empowers people by starting with small changes that ultimately become transformative. She has used this approach in her own life as she built her fitness from 5 minutes of Joe Wicks a day to running 100 mile mountain races.
She has created the Nurture Retreats Venue from a wood clearing at the bottom of her garden and works with local experts to provide a range of health and wellbeing experiences.

Yoga at Nurture Health & Fitness, West Haddon
As the seasons change, outdoor Yoga is a great way to connect with nature; enjoy the sounds around you, as you practice in the fresh air. Imagine laying under the trees in relaxation and looking at setting sun on the horizon or the moon and stars – magical!
I feel very lucky to work with a great friend and local business owner, Alice Sheldon from Nurture Health & Fitness at her amazing outdoor space in West Haddon, Northamptonshire. Nestled in private woodlands, a path leads you down past the the stables and fire pit, to a purpose built wooden platform surrounded by trees and fields. The whole area helps you to feel peaceful and grounded.
I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright
