Living a healthy and active lifestyle has always been important to me, and from a young age I have been involved in a range of activities including horse riding, running, dancing, hockey and athletics. I now run regularly and take part in a variety of challenge events from assault courses to climbing mountains.
I believe that exercise should be enjoyable as that makes it easier to stick to. I'm qualified to teach a range of activities including circuits, indoor cycling, kettlebells and mixed martial arts, and incorporate elements of these into my sessions to keep them varied and fun.
Before becoming a personal trainer I spent close to ten years working in the fast-paced environment of Media and PR. Despite my passion for exercise I found it hard to maintain my healthy lifestyle and exercise regime due to the pressures of work and home. However, by making gradual changes I was able to obtain a better work/life balance, which actually made me more productive at work.
Due to my experiences I fully understand the potential barriers to exercise and eating well that work and family pressures can bring, and therefore provide ongoing support to my clients to help them overcome these.
