About me

Background

After twenty years of working in the magazine and advertising industry (including stints on Runner’s World, Men’s Health & Zest) I yearned to stop sitting behind a desk and convert my passion for fitness and nutrition into my career.

I would constantly encourage (occasionally drag…) friends and colleagues out running and provide them with training plans. This motivated a few people to go from being avid non-runners to completing the London Marathon.

It was a logical step to retrain as a personal trainer and nutritionist, applying my enthusiasm for making people move around to general fitness in more areas than just running.

My story

My own fitness has been subject to peaks and troughs. As a teenager I played hockey and through University and my twenties I was a gym regular loving aerobics, step and running. However in my late twenties I developed a severe thyroid issue and this caused a great deal of weight gain and my fitness plummeted to the point where trying to run for one minute was agony. Inspired to change, I entered the London Marathon completing my first one in 2006. When my treatment was finally sorted out I did this again in 2009, 2010 & 2013. I have personal experience of how it feels to be very overweight and physically at an extremely low ebb. So I understand the steps you need to take to improve both body and mind. Conversely I also have experienced pushing my body through a huge challenge such as the marathon on four separate occasions, each time striving to improve my performance.

Extra curricular

My other passions are cooking and baking. I really enjoy developing healthy recipes and some not so healthy (it’s about balance!), amateur dramatics, singing, tap dancing and horse riding.

Fitness: What I can do for you

When I am fit and healthy life is easier and so much more enjoyable. This is what I personally would like everyone I work with to achieve – whether you see me for one to one personal training or come to bootcamp classes. I guarantee you will not spend an hour without laughing and leaving feeling really good about yourself.
