'If I had to go back and pinpoint the beginning of my journey towards a lifetime of health and fitness, it would start with participating in sport at the age of 6.
Gymnastics was a huge part of my life up until the age of 12. I learned all about discipline, strength, passion, drive, determination and commitment not to mention being inspired by the greats and aspiring to be the best. After winning several local championship titles and gaining my BAGA - British Amateur Gymnastics Association - awards, I wanted to explore other sports and hobbies, moving into tennis, netball, athletics, dance and then eventually into fitness.
In the early 90's, I decided to build a career within the fitness industry and gained my first set of fitness qualifications as an aerobics instructor in 1994, going onto qualifying in many other areas within the industry over a 25 year period. Certifications include studio instruction, step and circuit training, gym instruction, weight training, eventually focusing on coaching and advanced personal training, specialising in bodybuilding, strength & conditioning, functional training, lifestyle and sports nutrition.
Other achievements include becoming a WBFF Professional Fitness Model in 2013 and winning the European Championships. I went onto taking the runner up placing at the 2017 World Championships in London and Los Angeles, USA at the 2018 USA North American Championships at the age of 47.
In seeking new challenges to help develop the mindset of the masses towards a healthy and fitter lifestyle, the ideology of helping people invest into a lifetime of progressive health and fitness, drove me to undertake a series of challenging studies, completing diplomas & obtaining practitioner statuses in both CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and NLP - Neuro-linguistic Programming.
My next step is to master my counselling and sports psychology training to add into the mix. Becoming a certified working practitioner enables me to strengthen my connections with people by working with their mindsets. I want to help create new habits by encouraging people to embrace a more positive approach towards the benefits of what incorporating health, fitness, wellbeing can do, to create a more balanced life.
My love, commitment and devotion to a lifetime of health and fitness is unique. My vibe is all about working from the inside out. I will help, assist and encourage you to invest into your health and yourselves on a long term basis.....'
