About me

I first started getting into fitness in school playing football and some other sports.

After School I embarked on a sport and recreation NVQ in which I qualified as a Level 2 Gym Instructor and I became a fitness resistance and cardio training equipment specialist.

I also achieved a NPLQ lifeguard qualification.

I used my lifeguard qualification to take a job at a Leisure Centre in Cheadle where I taught Aqua Aerobics.

I also started to teach Spin classes and bootcamps as well.

I went through a difficult time after a career change that resulted in me suffering with depression and anxiety however I knew I needed something to help me combat these illnesses and I turned back to the gym.

I started seriously lifting weights and began to build up my physique again, I also took great enjoyment from learning the use Olympic gymnastics rings.

I found through all this training that my mental focus was immensely improved, my anxiety became less and my depression much more still.

I am now looking to take my training to a competition level to push myself even more and will hopefully be competing very soon on the Classic Physique stage.

I love fitness and training, not only how it helps my confidence, but my mental wellbeing is so much better as a result, it gives me something very positive to work hard at and helps push me beyond my expectations of myself.

I am now fully qualified as a Personal Trainer and I am excited to pass my knowledge onto others and help them love their training and themselves as well.
