Unlock Your Potential & Commit to Yourself. 

'A formula 1 engineer for the mind and body'    Martin Hartley

For over 20 years Kim Ingleby, better known as the ‘Mind Body Ninja’ has been something of a

coaching best kept secret. She is a unicorn, in the sense that her in depth knowledge bridges

the worlds of professional sport, mindset and business in equal measures.

Working with everyone from Team GB athletes, Business leaders, personalities including

multiple Olympic Gold medalists, several Strictly stars and Entrepreneurs.  Kim has run 10 adventure marathons combined with

charity work, in countries including Sierra Leone, Nepal & India, delivered a TEDx talk, 'My Brain and I', on embracing

adversity and written best-selling book, 52 Ways to Feel Good.

As one of Sweaty Betty & Optimum Nutrition's National Ambassador’s she blends mind, body & soul confidence

for both women and men of all ages, running workshops across the World. Kim works with her advanced training in Neuro Linguistic Programming and coaching to support individuals

impacted by trauma including MH17, Manchester Arena & Military families through Help for Heroes. Kim is regularly requested to deliver

workshops and keynotes for corporations including BBC, GDS Group & Danone Europe.

Kim’s strength & remarkable resilience however, stem from far deeper than the competitive

sports which saw her compete for Scotland U21 Three Day Eventing, and Team GB Triathlon

Age Group Worlds & European Championships.

Having superseded a lifetime of challenge which began aged 10 when she was sent to a

 hospital far from home for several months following years of severe mental & physical bulling, where she lost the will to live.  

Kim has already transcended more than many will face in a lifetime. It

was during this catalytic stay in hospital that a young Kim, aged 13 admits to “making the choice to stay

alive and really live” That early experience was pivotal in shaping both Kim’s ability to empathise

with her clients, but also to shift out of their state and embrace new possibilities.

In November last year when Kim completed the Indian Himalayan 100 mile race on foot, (only

half the entrants did), it marked an huge 5 year progress step from recovering after

contracting Weil’s disease at a triathlon in the UK. This affected her liver, kidneys, and led to viral encephalitis impacting her nervous system, balance, co-ordination and even speak coherently. 

In 2018 Kim experienced the effects of suicide close to her, 

which has given her an even greater depth and purpose to help people make sense of their life and know they matter. 

It is Kim’s life experience of perseverance through challenge and her ability to both recognise

and empathise deeply with the fears, doubts, hopes and dreams with people from all walks of life have, which

continue to help carve her apart from the UK’s many coaching experts.

Indeed, her approach to supporting her clients places the preservation of positive mental and physical health

at the heart of all her work. With an approach steeped in professional training around the mind body connection –

completing her NLP Masters, Time Line Therapy & Hypnotherapy to complement her degree

in International Business, and Advanced Personal Training, Sports Massage Therapy &

Nutritional Therapy, Kim has a unique depth of experience & knowledge which crucially unifies the

mind body connection. She has raised almost £90,000 for a variety of movement and mental

health charities including Mind, Encephalitis Society & Access Sport. 

Today, Kim is committed to helping as many people as possible transform by committing to their

life, healing and then transforming to live the life they wish for.

Ask Kim what she wants most to impart on the individuals with whom she works, and she is


“My approach is weaved with the physicality of movement and mindset,adventure and happiness.  It goes

way beyond just talking about deep issues. My purpose is always to help nourish an inner confidence and strength within, 

empowering people to make the changes needed to commit to themselves and ultimately live a

brave, bold and happy life. Beyond this, I just want to challenge what we believe is possible for us.”

And that is exactly what Kim Ingleby continues to do.

She is part strategist, part thought provoker, and very much my very own personal cheerleader. What never ceases to amaze me is that she has knack for knowing when and what questions to ask and to indeed keep asking the same question in order to really dig deep.If you are looking for someone to confide in, learn about yourself and receive tailored personal aspirations then look no further, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Kim."Annette Burgess
