Job title

Fitness Coach

How did you get involved in the health and fitness industry?

I’ve always played and been involved in sport from a young age and knew that a desk job wasn’t something that would interest me, so when I finished college I went and completed my level 2 in fitness and it started from there.

What is your specialist area?

I specialise in body weight and functional based exercise.

How many days do you workout?

I work out between 3 and 5 times a week depending on what I can fit in my sessions.

How do you stay motivated?

I stay motivated by keeping the momentum going. When you take a break from working out it’s hard to get back into it, which is why I always stay on.

What is your favourite training session and why?

My favourite training session is back because I never need a spot when I exercise and I can go quite heavy. It’s enjoyable.

What is your favourite indulgence?

Biscuits.

What is your favourite music track to workout to?

Kaytranada by Glowed Up.
