A little about me and how I came to be doing what I do ….

Since my early childhood I always was very keen on being active. Joining the gymnastic group in primary school years introduced me to competitive sports. By the time I was sixteen I got my first certificate to be an assistant to a gymnastic instructor. When I was eighteen I became fully qualified to teach children’s gymnastic and instructing aerobics classes for women. I worked for my local sports club for about 5 years on a part-time basis. One of my A-level subjects was Sports.

In 2003 I decided to train with Future Fit Limited to become a Personal Trainer. Through this training I am fully qualified since 2005 as a REPs Level 3 Personal Trainer. My next goal, in 2018, is to become qualified to be able to accept referrals from health professionals. Beyond that I endeavour to become a REPs qualified Level 4 Lower Back Specialist. This will be the highest qualification that you can currently achieve in the UK Fitness Industry.

For 13 years now, as a Freelance Personal Trainer, having gathered a wealth of experience and knowledge in the fitness industry, I’ve really enjoyed spending quality time with people either in their homes or outdoors to help them becoming physically healthier. I personally train at home and have been taking part in Triathlons for the last 5 years to keep myself fit.
