A little bit about me…

My family are all super fit and active.

When I was younger, some of our best family holidays were organised around marathons and triathlons that my Dad wanted to compete in.

I was actually in Hawaii when my Dad completed an IRON MAN Triathlon 1988 (in my mummy’s tummy).

So I have always accepted fitness and exercise as part of life. My Mum has always enjoyed exercise and as soon as I was old enough I would have tagged along with her to whatever aerobics/boxing/Pilates/gym class she was going to.

Things got a little dark in my school days, I wasn’t really a huge fan, didn’t have a clue where I wanted my life to go. I was a little bit of a loner, mostly my own doing, I loved Art class and would literally hide there all day. I would skip PE or any sports class and go to Art instead, it was like a little safe haven.

YES I WAS THAT KINDA WEIRD KID THAT ALWAYS HAD PAINT IN HER HAIR.

Anyways, long story short, I went to Art College, and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Fine and Applied Art. I’m not an artist, not really arty enough, too normal, and I don’t really appreciate being judged. University did however help me come out of my shell, I met loads of new people and hey I got the sticker.

Pretty much as soon as I left university, I got a grown up (ish) job and started off on the road of ‘working 9-5’. I joined a gym and really enjoyed going, I would make time to go even if I didn’t feel like it, because I quickly realised that even 20mins in the gym would boost my mood and energy levels.

That was 2010 and I haven’t looked back since.

In 2015, after a year living in America, I decided I needed a change in my life, I wanted to want to get up for work in the morning and to love what I was doing. But what did I love doing? What did I already get up for at 6am or race to after work?

THE GYM

So I started my Level 2 Fitness Instructor, which then became Level 3 PT, then Pre and Post Natal, not really thinking I’d ever take the plunge and quit my job, but I did and wow was that one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

In January this year, I literally had a NEW YEAR, NEW ME, NEW CAREER!
