I have over 8 years’ experience working in the Fitness industry, and like most gym instructors, have developed a wide knowledge on a variety of training techniques. It’s been important to understand that even if a customer’s goal sounds just like everyone elses, they are in fact very different and you have to take into consideration their reasons behind each goal and the lifestyle they currently lead. Once you understand this and get to know each person on an individual basis you can better prescribe suitable changes to their workouts, nutrition and ultimately their overall wellbeing.

More recently I have focused on Sports Conditioning which includes the development of an efficient running technique, as well as using Olympic Lifts to improve Sports Performance. I’m always keen to get the most out of a person and choose the right style of training to suit, so whether you need support and guidance in a group class environment, or want to learn how to use more functional pieces of equipment in the gym on your own, please do not hesitate to speak to me when you see me around the centre!
