I believe exercise should be empowering, functional, creative and fun. We want to be able to move our bodies freely without any restrictions; take a sprint to catch a bus, run up down the stairs, carry heavy bags, children and so on…
A strong, balanced body needs a combination of strength, power, endurance, flexibility, mobility and coordination. My sessions are varied, working on all these different elements.
My focus is not on fitness and exercise only; nutrition, mental wellbeing, sleep, stress levels all have an impact on how we are feeling and our energy levels. Creating more awareness and gaining knowledge about our bodies and habits will help with our general well-being!
I also advise on nutrition and healthy eating and have a level 3 degree in exercise for pre and post-natal.
Area of expertise: Bodyweight & functional training, HIIT, pre and post-natal, nutrition.
Favourite exercise: I don’t have one favourite exercise and my preferred type of training changes all the time… at the moment I am really into kickboxing, CrossFit and calisthenics.
