I trained in Florida originally with the Fitness institute then afterwards with the American College of Sports Medicine, after I qualified I returned home and have enjoyed training a wide variety of people from professional sportsman and teams to children and older people recovering from surgery and injury, working alongside surgeons and physiotherapists we have achieved great results in getting people back to full strength and mobility in a much shorter time than anticipated. I organise intense week long training courses for clients at home and abroad where certain aspects of their lifestyle are analysed and adapted to help towards a healthier future. They are introduced to exercise, activities and good food they will enjoy. Healthy habits will change a person’s fitness and shape forever. Over the years I have enjoyed many sporting activities including kitesurfing, cycling, martial arts, climbing, running and swimming. Because I’ve seen how good nutrition and exercise can transform people’s lives I am passionate about helping people look and feel as good as possible all the time.
