Health and Fitness has always played a significant role in my life, competing in cross countries and road races from the age of 16, I continue to exercise daily and have competed in a number of 5km race finishing 1st position. Transferring this enjoyment into a professional career gave me ability to understand individual’s needs and adapt programmes to cater specifically.
Working in this environment begun at the age of 20, when I took an interest into circuit training attending regular classes and gradually qualifying as a fitness consultant. For the past seven years I have been working across the Hampshire region covering many aspects of fitness training, focusing primarily on teaching studio classes.
At the age of 18 I took part in Camp America, leading outdoor fitness sessions on a daily basis for children aged between 12 to 17 years which gave me my initial background into teaching, planning sessions and structuring the day’s activities to enable a fun fulfilling but effective summer camp. It gave me the ability to understand outdoor pursuits, with health and safety being a key focus.
Travelling increased my self-confidence and the opportunity to work amongst a variety of different cultures. The constant change in environments allowed me to learn to adapt promptly and professionally, strategically working to gain experience and knowledge within the fitness field.
Australia was my most memorable period of working with clients on a one-to-one basis, of all age, shapes and sizes. The individuals ranged from novices through to professional Australian athletes. I spent 3 months working at The University of Sydney in 2000, whereby I assisted individuals to achieve their desired sporting and fitness goals. Following this experience I returned to the UK, to passionately further my career and achieve my all time personal goal of setting up a Boot Camp to continue to help others.

Being active from day one as I took my first breath, playing all sorts of sports and doing all sorts of activities before starting primary school, life took its merry little way turning me towards doing something physical with my life, from playing basketball to a high standard from the age of 5 to passing my 5 meter swim test.
At the age of 18 I joined the Royal Navy as a Radar Operator but soon realised being kept in a dark room and watching little orange blips on a screen wasn’t for me, so I did an Physical Training Aptitude, passed and went on a 7 month long course which gave me qualifications within a variety of fields.
My most memorable moment of my Naval career was being asked to be a Number One instructor at the Royal Navy Physical Training School, HMS TEMERAIRE taking 14 Naval Rating of all sorts of skills and jobs and teaching them to become Physical Trainers and Leaders of Men and Women.
So as you can see I am a versatile Physical Trainer with a vast amount of experience within all fields and aspects of my job, and this has also given me the inspiration and motivation to train and compete in the Mr South East Bodybuilding Competition in April 2011.

I have been interested in all sports from the age of 10, involved in all area inter school competitions mainly field events and cross country. Main sport was Hockey, which I played for Fareham & Gosport under 16’s and also played at County level. Attended England Hockey for Schools training at Bisham Abbey, only just stopped playing the last couple of years.
I have a varying range of skills developed over the last 6yrs and still always looking for ways to develop myself, biggest achievement apart from Hell Run, Tough Mudder & a couple of Triathlons. I was selected as part of a team to complete The Three Peaks Challenge August 2015 for charity event which was tough.
Love taking part in various events, love to keep fitness fun and having fun whilst instructing, but always ensure safety is a number one factor in my sessions, love being outside and always try to get the best out of people in each session I deliver.
