I’ve been passionate about sport all my life and an active participant over the years, most significantly in football, tennis, skiing and cycling. As I’ve got older and experienced different injuries and changes in my own biomechanics, my training as a sports massage therapist and personal trainer has enabled me to adapt the approach to my own fitness programme to make sure that exercise still has a positive benefit for me.
Since hitting 50 I’ve cycled from London to Paris and taken part in the 100 mile ‘Ride London’ event, raising money for Cancer Research.
After 25+ years in corporate life I felt it was time for a change in direction to pursue a more rewarding career, using my training to develop fitness and exercise programmes which help over 45s (and some still a little younger!) to stay fitter for longer.
I have a BTEC level 5 Sports and Remedial Massage Diploma from the London School of Sports Massage and have been a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage since 2006.
I also hold a City & Guilds level 3 Certificate in Personal Training from Future Fit Training, the UK’s leading provider of personal training and nutritionist courses.
