Before qualifying as a personal trainer and massage (both Sports and Swedish) therapist, I was an officer in the Royal Navy and a chartered accountant.

Not being somebody who likes to be bored and always being up for a new challenge, over the last ten years I have embarked on a career as an exercise class teacher; personal trainer and massage therapist. A decision I certainly don’t regret!

I enjoy getting to know new people, being out of doors and generally being active but I also love food and drink and believe that it is possible to have a balance between the two. I enjoy setting myself challenges and have just completed my Stott Pilates Matwork Course and am currently working towards my exam for formal Certification. I have also finished my Level 4 Qualification in Exercise and Nutritional Inventions for Obesity and Diabetes and also a Level 3 Qualification in GP Exercise Referral. This allows me to work with clients with a wide range of illnesses ranging from high blood pressure or high cholesterol to depression and anxiety.

Specialist Areas

Are functional training (exercise based on everyday movements); the use of exercise in managing lower back pain and massage (Sports and Swedish). I also love training with kettlebells, boxercise, TRX, medicine balls and VIPrs. I primarily work from my home studio in Park Gate, near Fareham.
