Welcome to Arciemme Active
Personal Training and Wellness Website
I'm Ruth Calder Murphy (aka Arciemme). I'm a qualified personal trainer, with special expertise in run coaching, pre- and post-natal fitness, Exercise for re-activating after Stroke, Exercise during peri-menopause and post-menopause, body weight resistance training, kettle bell training and nutritional guidance. I also have special interest and experience in the benefits of physical exercise for mental health.
I'm a vegan and a veteran long-distance runner. I believe strongly in whole-person well-being and this informs all areas of my life and work.
Everyone has the right to discover the joy of being active, where and as they are - and to find ways of becoming the healthiest versions of themselves that they can, and want, to be.
This belief is at the heart of my approach to personal training. It's what it says it is: personal.
Whether you're an athlete wanting to hit PBs in your next competition, or a complete beginner who feels unsure about the best way to pluck up the courage to leave your house for your first ever run, I'm committed to working with you to achieve your short, medium and long-term goals, without assumption or judgement.
