Why did you become a personal trainer?

I wanted to help people achieve their health and fitness goals and make them feel like they can achieve anything when they stay focused.

What do you love about working with Revolution?
I get to work with other trainers who offer many different training specialities and work for a company that offers many different services to their clients to provide them with the ultimate health and fitness package.

What is your earliest memory of being active?

I remember at primary school, competing in athletics events like hurdles and 50m sprint. I really enjoyed that sort of exercise.

What is your favourite exercise?

I’m really enjoying reformer Pilates at the moment, but I do enjoy my boxing still.

What is your favourite piece of equipment?

The medicine ball, it is very versatile.

Where is your favourite place to work out?
Down by the beach, a run and then some exercises on the beach.

What is your training philosophy?

To train hard all the time (not just with your personal trainer), stay focussed on your goals and combine your diet and exercise to achieve your health and fitness goals sooner.

How do you unwind after a long days work?
I enjoy reading a book or enjoying a meal with friends (sometimes a glass of wine too).

If you weren’t a personal trainer, what would you be?
