I started out in fitness in 2007 when I stepped inside a gym for the first time. With no knowledge of what to do I took it upon myself to read magazines and search the internet for guidance. I quickly found I had a passion for health and fitness and with the knowledge I had gained from hours of training and reading I decided I wanted to take my career in this direction. In 2009 I enrolled on the fitness academy course at Hopwood Hall College which gave me the qualifications needed to pursue my chosen career. I gained a job at OHLC and built up an excellent rapport with the members where I was able to set up my first fitness class in 2010, which is still going. I have continued to increase my knowledge throughout the years with an arsenal of qualifications to back it up.

I made the decision to move on from the gym into management to focus on having a more hands on role in the decisions in which the company deliver the service provided to our clients.

My early passion for bodybuilding took my knowledge in the direction of strength and conditioning with a solid understanding of nutrition plans to give clients the best possible chance of reaching their goals.
