A Bit About Me...

I originally trained as a Primary School Teacher, and have been teaching for over 20 years.  My love for fitness came later on in life.  During my 20s I was always guilty of joining the gym, signing up for the latest fitness fads, buying celebrity exercise DVDs and never sticking at any of them for more than a few weeks.  However in my 30s (and after becoming a mum), I became well and truly hooked to exercising.  I realised how much better I felt, mentally and physically, when I exercised regularly.   


I have made it my mission to pass on my enthusiasm for exercising to other people like myself!  I believe fitness classes should be enjoyable and improve your overall health and well-being.  I try to ensure my clients feel happy, relaxed and learn how to exercise safely and appropriately for their current fitness level.  I have taught numerous PE lessons and After School Sports Clubs over the years; but what I have particularly enjoyed recently is running classes for adults (of all ages ranging from 16 to 80 years old!) and watching their confidence, fitness and friendships grow. 


I also love helping to care for my brother, who has Downs Syndrome and Autism.  He inspired me to gain my qualification in 'Programming and Supervising exercise for people with disabilities'.     

I believe continual professional development is very important. Therefore since qualifying, I have continued to attend courses and participate in some local Pilates classes regularly.


When I’m not working or studying, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.  I can often be found doing Pilates; walking/jogging and chatting along our beautiful coastal paths with friends; running alongside my daughter on a horse or watching my son play rugby (as long as it is not too cold or wet!!).
