Hi and welcome to my website and blog 🙂
I’m Liza Smith and Forza Fitness is my dream come true.
I am passionate about health and fitness and I love working with clients to help them achieve their goals, whether that’s dropping pounds, reaching a new fitness level, hitting a new PB or just maintaining some sort of regular fitness regime.
Forza Fitness is my fitness company focused on helping people achieve their goals by offering tried & tested, fully tailored Personal Training in Havant, Portsmouth, Fareham, Chichester and surrounding areas.
On my blog I will post regular updates on what I’m up to, innovative training ideas and fitness and nutrition tips to help you become the you, you really want to be.
All sessions take place at my private home studio, allowing complete focus on you and your journey without distraction.
My guarantee is that I will deliver a friendly, fun, professional and complete training experience.
All sessions are fully tailored to you, to help you meet your unique aims and goals.
Sessions are recorded to monitor your progress and keep you on track and motivated.
I use a variety of training methods and a wide range of tried and tested training tools to keep session interesting and fun, such as;
TRX, Boxing, Kettlebells, Battle Ropes, Power Bags, Slamballs and Free Weights.
I take a fully holistic approach to fitness and consider all elements that can affect your progression;
training, nutrition, lifestyle, sleep habits and stress levels.
Please contact me to discuss your goals and my current availability.
I will create and deliver challenging but effective training sessions, custom made for you to achieve loss of body fat and an increase in lean muscle. My aim is to inspire you and hopefully you will learn a lot in the process too. My motto is strong, not skinny. I am all about being lean, fit, strong and healthy.
There are so many pitfalls when it comes to nutrition. An incorrect diet can cause muscle loss and slow your metabolism. You need to fuel your body correctly for the lifestyle you have and the training you do and I will help you do this.
Your lifestyle will affect your health and fitness and these can and should be taken into consideration when putting together an action plan to achieve your goals. Smoking and drinking are obvious factors but it’s also about the job that you do, what you do in your spare time, medication, health factors…it all contributes.
We all know a good night’s sleep is one of the best things for us, but it’s not achievable for many people. Considering your sleep patterns and the rest your body gets will help shape your training plan.
“I see Liza once a week and started seeing results within a few weeks. It’s been over a year now and I feel so much better in myself. My body shape has certainly changed for the better. It took me a while to adjust to it, but the positive comments from friends and family made the hard work worth it…”
Anna Green, 1 session a week
“Training with Liza is great! She has been encouraging and supportive towards me meeting my own personal goals. During our sessions, Liza has encouraged me to try new work outs which have kept me motivated and on track…”
Abbie Towler, 1 session a fortnight
“Liza really cares about what I want to achieve, she helps me stay positive and really motivates me during each session, as well as providing me with workout plans for me to do at the gym myself…”
Matt Whorlow, 12 week block
“I first started training with Liza as a friend when we both signed up for the 2017 London Marathon. With her help and encouragement, I managed to go from barely being able to run 3 miles to complete the 26.2 mile course and actually enjoying it…”
Kerry Turner , 2 sessions a week
“I could have joined the gym but probably wouldn’t ever have turned up to it. Liza addresses things holistically, she looks at your goals and puts together a plan for you as an individual…”
Auz Irani , 1 session a week
£30 per month
Tailored programming for use at home or the gym as required. Includes nutritional advice, weekly checkins and ongoing support.
If you’re new to exercise or the gym, stuck for ideas and bored with your current routine, or looking to turn things up a notch without the commitment or expense of one to one sessions this is the perfect alternative.
Throughout the year I also run various outdoor bootcamp, HIITs (Or FIITs as I call it -Forza Intensity Interval Training) and Circuit courses. Details of these will be released as and when new courses become available.
As well as being a PT I am also a fully qualified group fitness and gym instructor. I teach various classes at gyms around the Havant, Portsmouth and Fareham area.

I am a certified personal trainer, fitness instructor and group run leader. I am fully insured and REPS registered.
Being so passionate about health and fitness means my spare time is mostly dedicated to training and participating in some form of racing. I am a complete Obstacle Course Race addict and also enjoy trail and road running and doing the very occasional triathlon.
Professionally, I help transform bodies and lives. I take my role extremely seriously and this means I am always learning and working to be at the cutting edge of the health and fitness industry so that I can deliver you the most effective training and nutrition plans.
These plans alone, however, are not enough. I will work with you to achieve long-lasting lifestyle changes to ensure your hard work sticks and the results you achieve last.
I believe in practising what I preach and therefore take my training and nutrition seriously. I am not interested in perfect, I am interested in positive change, improvement and creating something different. I know that I will never be a particularly speedy runner and I REALLY enjoy a Krispy Kreme doughnut! However, I always try to lead from the front when it comes to putting in the effort and being a motivating force.
I have learnt how to endure and overcome the struggles, problems and emotions that we all encounter when trying to make a desired positive lifestyle change.
Success is never a straight road but I will work with you so that we try to avoid the negative pitfalls, manage them if and when they do come and no matter what, achieve that positive transformation you are looking for.
Fitness isn’t just about how you look; it’s about how you feel, how you function and even how you think.
Whether you’re already fit and need some new inspiration or if you’re starting out I’m happy to offer complete support for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
The tools you need to challenge yourself and reach your potential are right here waiting.
