Have you always been interested in fitness?
No! As a child I wasn’t the most sporty kid on the block and generally sat on the
reserves bench in the netball team, although I was pretty skilled at cutting up the
half time oranges! The fitness bug really started to hit me as I reached my adult
years and made associations with the feelings of well-
What made you pursue a career in the fitness industry?
My background is in the finance industry and I spent many years slogging away at
my desk doing long hours and long commutes and trying to fit my exercise schedule
around it. When a move from London to Cheshire forced me to reassess my job options
I took the bold move to change careers and focus on something that until that point

Who do you train?
Pretty much anyone who is looking for a personal trainer! Business men and women, Mums, Dads, Grandparents, teenagers, people who want to lose weight, pregnant ladies, people who are training for a specific event…the list is endless.

What are the important things to know about exercise?
There are 3 main things that I think sometimes get overlooked:
1) Anyone can do it – it’s never too late to take up exercise and there is a programme to suit everyone whatever your interests/goals/lifestyle.
2) It should be fun – sessions with me will be hard work and you’ll have to put in 100% effort to get your reward but we will have fun along the way and I hope you’ll find yourself looking forward to the next session
3) It’s very, very important – We all want to be fit and healthy enough to enjoy our life, whether that means kicking a ball around in the park with our children or managing a 70 hour business week. Your health is the most important asset you possess and without it you are nothing. So do football, do walking, do boxercise, do horseriding, do whatever you want to do as long as you DO SOME EXERCISE!!
