About me….. I have always loved exercise and have enjoyed pushing myself hard. I’ve done the London to Brighton bike ride, several triathlons for charity, numerous half marathons and in 2007, the Flora London Marathon, but as a younger woman my endless exercise not only left me feeling wiped out but did not seem to improve my figure to any great degree and I never understood why – now, having studied the body and nutrition endlessly – I do!
I seem to be most popular with clients that are in their 40’s, 50’s 60’s or 70’s or those under the age of 18 and I really enjoy training these age groups, probably because I’m a mother and am about to turn 50 so can truly relate to these clients and understand the way they should be trained to achieve the best results. Indeed, my youngest client is 13 and my oldest is 71 and if you read his testimonial on my ‘testimonials’ page, you will see how training with me has improved his wellbeing and helped a back problem that he has had for years.
I love what I do, nothing could be better than helping people to get fit, to understand nutrition better and to change their bodies for good!
