About Me

Back in 2007, I qualified as a Master Trainer with the Australian Institute of Fitness, REPS level 3. Since then, I have developed a great deal of passion for working with individuals of all shapes and sizes, in particular, those coping with physical and psychological impairments.

IMG_1401.JPGExercise after Stroke is the area I specialise in and as one of only a handful  of instructors in the country to hold two level 4 qualifications in the field I have made it my ambition to promote this field of rehabilitation. Please follow the link to read more about Exercise after Stroke  

As a direct result of working with stroke survivors I have a comprehensive understanding of neurological training requirements and apply these principles throughout all personal training sessions. I genuinely believe there is an exercise regime for everyone and I hope to inspire individuals, or groups of people, to enjoy exercise and adopt healthier lifestyles. In a world of quick fixes and technological advances, we must think about our actual health, and what these modern conveniences are doing to our bodies.    

STOP!! Exercise doesn’t have to be feared, it doesn’t have to be painful and doesn’t have to be done in a gym or involve running for miles! In this modern age there are so many opportunities to do exercise, be you 70 having just had a hip replacement, or simply want to shift a few, or a few hundred pounds! 

Get in contact and we’ll have a chin-wag and a cuppa and see if personal training is for you.
