As a child I always enjoyed any kind of physical activity whether it was PE at school, badminton classes, Basingstoke Athletics club to family walking holidays and being out on my bike with friends. Academically though Science was my passion and gaining a degree in Marine Biology back in 2000 this was the path I followed for the next 15 years. During that time I was an active member of gyms and a local running group in Portsmouth. When I moved to Fareham I came across Body Blast Bootcamp waiting to start a session down at Bath Lane Recreation Ground. I enquired and soon found myself signed up for a session – I never looked back.
After 6 months, fitness was becoming a serious pastime for me so much so that I decided I didn’t want to work in a lab, sitting down at a microscope day after day (not doing my posture any favours). So in September 2014 I started my Personal Training Diploma alongside my day job and the family. Less than 2 years later I was qualified and started covering Bootcamp sessions, quit my job and started working in a gym and gaining personal training experience and teaching classes.
I love seeing clients get results, it’s what I joined the industry to do. I want as many people as possible to feel the benefits of exercise like I do and know that it can be fun.
I constantly strive to challenge myself taking part in various events from road races to obstacle courses.
As a busy working mum I understand how today’s pressures of life mean time is limited and exercise can take a back seat but with the right support, physical activity can become a part of your routine improving your general health and wellbeing.
