Hobbies
Does fitness count? As a full time primary school teacher, working as a PT, attending fitness classes, and trying to organise my husband I don’t have much spare time.

Why the fitness industry?
I have always enjoyed sports and keeping active as well as passing on my knowledge to others. This passion began when I was a competitive swimmer, which then led me to become a swimming instructor for 8 years. Currently as a teacher as well as a PT, I love helping others reach their full potential. I support healthy lifestyle choices and love to share my knowledge with everyone. I have always been fascinated by the human body and its abilities. I love seeing the progression when clients learn something new.
