For 5 years I worked part time as a children’s sport coach while studying at college and university. I loved teaching children fundamental physical skills, watching their progression from week to week and witness special friendships and attitudes that sport and fitness instilled. A reminder to me that taking part in sport and exercise was about much more than just benefits in ‘physical fitness’, but rather a multidimensional concept including additional emotional, social, nutritional and medical factors. Each of which play an important part in leading a healthy, stress-free lifestyle.
From a young girl, I have actively taken part in sports and fitness with a naturally competitive and driven attitude. I was in my element when competing on school sports teams with friends and played a high standard of competitive Netball in and outside of school. I was always known as the ‘sporty one’ in my group of friends and I totally embraced that! I loved knowing that people understood I was passionate about my health and fitness. And this is something I have always tried to share to inspire others.
I love running and have done lots of races for charity including 10k’s, half marathons, full marathons and crazy obstacle races! As I have got older and the world of fitness has evolved, I have introduced more weighted/resistance based training into my programs (which is so important, no matter what level you are at guys!).
