I have been a Strength & Fitness Coach for over 10 years starting in the Industry in London UK. I have gained valuable experience from working hands on with everyday people, ranging from clients new to exercise, overweight people, weekend warriors and aspiring athletes. My desire is to keep pushing the boundaries by creating and developing new innovative ideas and programs for my clients and conditioning classes.
I have a great passion for Ketlebells and have trained with some great coaches in the Industry. One of them being Steve Cotter of the International Kettlebell & Fitness Federation (IKFF) and the other Mike Mahler In the UK I worked under the watchful eyes of top Strength Coach Cj Swaby, whereby I assisted teaching on Cj’s Kettlebell workshops.
I have successfully ran Boot Camps in Bournemouth and London UK, presented to trainers in Trinidad on bodyweight training and Managed at one of the leading gyms in the UK, inspiring Personal Trainers to see their true potential and build a business.
My mission is to transform and inspire people to make positive lifestyle changes through healthy eating and training.
My vision is to create a positive, fun, energetic, results oriented training environment, to provide group training programs for people to come together to achieve their fitness goals.
