Meet the Woman Transforming Wellness in the City

After five years in The City, it became very apparent to Kira Mahal that very few people in London have time to work the long hours expected of them, maintain a social life and find time for fitness.

It is also a fact that companies are only as strong as their workforce, and many business leaders struggle to keep employees motivated, productive and happy.

That’s why 29-year-old Kira Mahal founded MotivatePT – one of London’s largest Personal Training networks – to help all companies, big and small, find a solution to this very common problem.
When corporate wellness programs first took off the focus was primarily on dietary habits or weight loss goals. Kira knew that they needed to move on, and that they needed to offer more than just a focus on the physical aspect of health.

Since founding MotivatePT back in 2015, Kira has worked with a whole host of large corporates including Penguin, RG/A and WeWork to help over 1000 Londoners bring balance into their lives. Alongside her growing team of highly-trained PT’s, MotivatePT run programs that provide an equal focus between fitness, nutrition and mental wellbeing – refreshing a workforce to step through the office feeling happier and healthier every morning – stronger in themselves and as a team, with a solid foundation for personal development.

Kira Mahal, Founder of MotivatePT explains:

“Having had first hand experience of working in a fast-paced, highly pressurised corporate environment, I knew that there was – and still is – a huge problem that must be tackled.

“We are passionate about implementing the idea of collective wellbeing, and I’m continually shocked that wellbeing in the workplace isn’t higher up on the priority list of employers. Not only does it help support a healthy workforce, for companies looking to increase recruitment and retention efforts, shifting a focus to include collective wellbeing will help keep current employees happy as well as attract new talent.”

Alasdair Moore from HomeHouse said:

“Kira and the team run fantastic group “sweatworking” sessions – fun, challenging and engaging. Kira’s enthusiasm for both fitness and people is infectious – would highly recommend on both 1-2-1 platform, and also for groups and corporates looking for wellness, fitness and team building activities.”

Training group sizes vary from 3 individuals to up to 20 individuals, but would normally keep the ratio of one personal trainer to a maximum of 20 employees, so that the personal trainer can properly cater to all individuals.

The MotivatePT team are skilled at transforming any ordinary space into a training ground. Some corporate clients like to use the foyer or an empty boardroom, whereas others prefer to train outside, anywhere from a park to an empty parking lot!

MotivatePT offer a free onsite consultation and make it easy to incorporate exercise into a working week. To find out more about the corporate packages on offer, please visit:
