Biography

If you’re hesitant about changing your lifestyle and getting into fitness, then I know where you’re coming from! I haven’t always been into fitness and a healthy lifestyle – far from it! I developed asthma as a child and struggled to participate in sports due to breathing difficulties. I enjoyed swimming, javelin throwing and horse riding (even though my allergies flared up around horses).

University beckoned, and my attention became focused on (in no particular order) – going out, cigarettes, boys, hedonism, alcohol, London, men, unhealthy food). My unhealthy lifestyle continued until I was 37, until I decided enough was enough. I decided to give up smoking, joined a gym, and reduced my alcohol intake. I was surprised to discover I enjoyed my new lifestyle, I met new like-minded people looking to change their lives too, and discovered a passion for running (my asthma is under control now).

It took a little while to create better habits but it was worth it, I started to feel much happier in my body, sexier and my confidence soared! I stuck with running and have since completed three London Marathons. I never would have dreamed that I would be able to achieve that!

These achievements inspired me to get into personal training, and after a couple of years in business, I realised that I love working with professional, busy women over forty, who want to feel fantastic and live their lives to the full and Feeling Fantastic Over Forty was born!

I’m passionate about helping you to make yourself a priority, feel at the top of your game and live life to the full! I’m committed to continuous professional development – I spend a lot of time researching and learning the latest fitness techniques/science to continuously improve my sessions so that you have the best possible training experience. The science behind fitness is constantly evolving, just like your goals. I apply the latest fitness knowledge to help you to smash your goals and set bigger goals that you would never have thought possible!

I love to pass on my health and fitness knowledge so I also coach fellow personal trainers to help them to grow their businesses. I also mentor students via Faster courses and teach courses for Faster. My work has given me so much joy so I want to give back – if I can achieve and exceed my goals so can YOU!

It is my Passion to help women Feel Fantastic.
