I have enjoyed working in the Fitness Industry for the last 28yrs.

I enjoy passing my knowledge and skills onto future fitness professionals through teaching a wide variety of fitness courses and helping to continually raise standards within the industry.
My passion for sports and fitness developed at the age of 7 when I began figure skating. This led to me competing for Great Britain and eventually performing for several years with Disney on Ice. I have been in the fitness industry for 17years, starting out as a qualified Exercise to Music Instructor. In 2005 I embarked on a teaching career and have had vast experience of teaching and assessing in the FE sector as well as in the fitness industry, being skilled to teach a range of disciplines.
I have been teaching group exercise classes for over ten years both at my local leisure centre and private centres. I teach freestyle as it allows me to be more creative and individual which clients really enjoy. I enjoy teaching group cycle classes at it allows me to develop and improve clients’ overall fitness. However, if I was to say what I specialise or enjoy teaching the most, it would have to be bums, tums and thighs as this allows me to work with clients of different abilities but achieving the same outcome.
For many years, I have enjoyed all aspects of fitness and for the last 2 years have been a group exercise instructor. I generally teach aerobics, group cycle and step aerobics, but don’t particularly have preference to any one area as I am always ready to teach any class as long as my participants feel they have received a complete workout. I enjoy motivating and encouraging people to attain their goals and as I don’t look like your ‘typical’ instructor, it is always good when people come to my class and are ‘pleasantly surprised’!
I have always been passionate about keeping myself fit, being a keen footballer as a youngster and then moving into the field of martial arts competing and teaching Thai boxing as a teenager. I passed my Exercise to Music and Gym Instructor courses in 2003 and level 3 Personal Trainer in 2017. I now teach a range of classes, but have a particular passion for boxing classes. My mantra revolves around ensuring that classes are delivered correctly for safety and with passion and motivation to keep them interesting, helping people achieve their health goals.
I have been active my whole life, sport is my passion. I was a professional, basketball & volleyball player, ice skater and swimmer. My fitness qualifications include: Level 3 Mat and Reformer Pilates teacher, Fitness Instructor, Group Exercise to music instructor, I am qualified in pre- post-natal and I also hold a Public Health and Physical activity degree. I actively teach in order to stay current with the teaching practises.
I have been part of the fitness industry since March 2010. It was a true, first side love and now burns ever stronger. I love the way how the human body can change just in a few months after years and years of abuse. I love to see people progress and how this progression makes them happy. I have been a practising personal trainer for more than 5 years now, also qualified in exercise referral and am now adding to my passion for helping others as a trainee Tutor and Assessor. Seeing other people that want to walk the same path makes me happy. The industry grows and more people are striving to find the way for better and healthier lives! I am an active bodybuilding competitor on heavier divisions 90+kg, as I am a huge believer of "First walk the road, then preach it!"
