Why did you become a personal trainer?
I started in the industry 5+ years ago. Initially it was due to my passion for sports, mainly Rugby and League. I wanted to have that same passion with my career and at the time I didn’t. Being active made it an easy career change as I found that I wasn’t just passionate about fitness but also passionate about helping my clients reach their targets also pushing them to their limits. I specialize in functional training methods and Zuu.
Coming from a hospitality background, I learned to cook straight out of school in professional kitchens so I love all food, you name it I’ll eat it.
Favourite exercise is the Deadlift and Chin ups. I like to mix things up so my workouts change all the time but I would say a combo of weights and functional bodyweight exercises. Zuu based bodyweight training is best for me, as you increase mobility and flexibility while getting that all important cardio/strength/lactic smack.
Favourite aspect about training?
My mental state of mind. Yes training makes you look good but it’s my mind that gets put at ease after a tough session. Everyone is so busy these days that they forget about number one, If I feel good it flows to all aspects of my life. In my business it’s the friends that I have got through my journey, clients become friends and they let you into their lives, which is very special.
PEOPLE FIRST, FITNESS SECOND.
Why did you become a Personal Trainer?
I've been in the fitness industry for 10+ years. I have always had a passion for health and fitness from a very young age. I have an interest in training females and making them feel empowered and comfortable and confident in their own skin. I also have the experience of pre and post natal fitness (Mumma of two!). I know how important the benefits of developing a strong pelvic floor and core control. Changing your lifestyle and habits are the most difficult part of your journey. I will help you adopt realistic changes that will encourage you to find enjoyment in exercise in an environment you like.
Deadlifts (basically anything that doesnt involve me running)
Favourite thing about training:
My mental health and the way exercise makes me feel afterwards. Being fit, strong and healthy so I can still do the things I like doing now when I'm older. Also to be able to live as long as possible for our daughter and son.
