I have been working in the fitness industry since 2011 and I began my training with Future Fit Training to become a Pilates Teacher. I found practising Pilates helped me get in shape after losing 5 stone in weight back in 2005. But as well as helping me to maintain a healthy body, the exercises used in Pilates has really help me in my sport too.

I want to make it my mission to help others gain that sense of achievement through good health and wellbeing using sport and fitness. Since starting out I have since qualified as a Coach in Running Fitness with England Athletics and through the courses I coach it has inspiried me to study for a degree in Sports Coaching.


When I am not teaching you'll find me in the local CrossFit gym. I love challenging myself through sport and I enjoy entering running, cycling and strength based competitions. My biggest achievement to date was becoming Cambridge Triathlon Club's Duathlon Champion in 2016. I am highly competitive but this year I have decided to shift my focus to trail running, with the aim to complete Rat Race's Coast to Coast in Scotland in 2018.


I am a strong believer in continuing education within the fitness profession below is a list of current qualifications which I hold.
