I will help you
If you're a person who...
wants to prioritise your health but...
feels overwhelmed by the information out there and...
has to consider previous injuries or illnesses then...
...getting safe and effective guidance is critical to ensuring a smooth transition to better health
But that initial transition is only the first part of it. The key to long term health is changing your feelings about your fitness.
I'll help you find the activities that allow you to overcome the difficulties, manage your health conditions and maintain a higher level of fitness than you could previously imagine.
What's my story?
As a child I was a true bookworm. You could take me anywhere as long as I had a stack of books to keep me company. I wasn't sporty or competitive at school and at University I got all my exercise from dancing.
I'm not your usual Personal Trainer.
After I had my children I experienced severe and enduring back pain. I was unable to work and at constant risk of nerve pain from bulging vertebral discs. I discovered that the only way I could manage my pain was through exercise so when it came to finding a new career there wasn't any choice, I had to keep my body mobile. I spent 14 years yo-yoing through bouts of agony until eventually a disc gave way which made surgery a viable option for me. This has removed much of my pain for which I feel daily gratitude.
Retraining as a Personal Trainer was as much about helping myself.
On the occasional weeks where I change my routine I realise that exercise is still key to managing my back and, while I can now live mostly pain free, it still comes at the cost of daily exercise. It makes me wonder if I would actually exercise if I didn't have to.
Do I like exercise or do I hate pain?
This is why I have a unique insight into what kick starts exercise routines and why they so often don't work. I'm not a natural exerciser and, although I love what I do, I understand the barriers that prevent others from taking the leap into fitness as a form of long term preventative medicine. I'm grateful every day that I took the time to study physical activity, the effect it has on wellness and on my personal pain management.
I love helping people uncover their motivations.
My clients very much reflect my journey. Many are considering how their body has fared through work, life and family obligations. They're now looking to the future and making the decision that they can take the time to focus on their health.
