    I started my fitness journey 15 years ago. I have since, taken part in a number of challenge’s, recent ones to mention a midnight marathon, ran part of a marathon in a team, and walked the 3 peaks challenge & took part in a CrossFit style run by the military PTs all of these took place in the Falklands islands during our 2 year stay.

    Having successfully passed the level 2 fitness instructor & level 3 personal trainer. I am super excited to help & support clients to create a positive exercising attitude.

    I feel I can’t create athletes, I feel I can’t perform miracles. However, I do believe I can help clients understand the importance of a positive mindset and a progressive attitude. And creating a resilient, adaptive, motivated body & mind should be a priority. My PT sessions are transferable lessons that can improve your everyday decision making, self esteem, confidence & self worth.
