        • Bio: Since my teens, I have always loved sports and fitness . It started with representing my school at the South Ribble cross country championship and I went to win this two years in a row. It was then I knew that sport would play a big part of my life. I progressed and took more of an interest in weight training throughout my twenties. I had spent most of my adult life working in retail but noticed that more people were asking me for advice on training and healthy eating. It was then I realised that I should persue a career in something I am passionate about. Two years down the line I am now a fully qualified Personal Trainer and have helped over 50 people reach their goals. I also have my level 1 strength and conditioning coach certificate. My greatest success so far is having one client set the European and World record in Benchpress In her first major competition. I love what I do and can’t wait to help more people change their life’s and reach their goals.
