Coach - Level 1A

The most enjoyable part of fitness to me is the difference it can make, seeing people come from the bottom and climb to the top and being proud of themselves and creating a healthy lifestyle makes the job worthwhile. The reason I became a coach was to help those who felt they weren’t able, who didn’t believe in themselves realise they are able. As a young girl I was always told ‘don’t train too much you don’t want to be bulking’ and I think that only made me want to train more! And as I did, I fell in love with the process, the community, the development, and the change it had on my life. My aim is to provide this to as many people as I can as a coach. I love helping people and showing them their capabilities in and outside the gym, as I am also currently gaining my Level 6 in Nutrition for weight management and athletic performance. 

Who inspires me: Chris Burnstead, his discipline and drive and consistency is something I will forever aim to stand to.

Advice I would give someone just starting in the gym: Don’t compare your day 1 to someone else’s 100. We all start on day 1 and this is the hardest day so well done for making it here!
