How I can help you

I am passionate about educating people on exercise, nutrition, health issues and lifestyle changes so they can live a healthy life every day.
I enjoy taking a holistic approach to client fitness and lifestyle development, building programmes from my own extensive education and experience in order to guide clients towards their health, rehab, fitness and weight loss goals. I often work alongside other health professionals such as physiotherapists, GPs, osteopaths and massage therapists to give her clients a complete health experience.
I am told my caring, yet firm attitude makes me a sought after professional in her field. I am currently taking clients online via Zoom. My own love of being active and healthy allows her to set a realistic example for her clients.

Award winning & nominated

In 2015 I was honoured to be the only UK woman to make Top Ten Global Finalists in the Life Fitness Personal Trainers to Watch Competition and won a Mayor of London – Community Volunteer Award for getting my London neighbourhood moving and united. In the corporate wellness setting in 2016 I was part of the team at Eversholt UK Rails Group to win a Vitality Insurance – Healthiest Workplace Award and in 2017 I was a shortlisted nominee in the Sport Category by We Are The City.
In my one to one sessions I enjoy meshing together pilates foundations and mind-body connections with traditional weight training techniques to give my clients the most effective, safe and mindful movement sessions.
All through my career I have found ways to get people active not only through my weekly personal training but also leading charity event warm-ups, volunteering in schools teaching children weight training, speaking at women’s networking meetings, writing articles and blogs, organising wellness retreats for women and students and leading (volunteering) my London community resident’s association planning active projects such as gardening and street parties with games.

I have been honoured to have worked at one of Canada’s leading & first certified medical fitness facilities as well as teaching on personal training courses in the areas of anatomy, fitness assessment, genetics fitness testing and gym instructor modules.
I share a healthy message with as many people as possible through writing for publications such as BodyFit, FitPro, Functional Sports Nutrition Magazine, Psychologies Magazine Life Labs, The Huffington Post UK and a two year regular Holiday Fitness column in Passport – Monarch Airlines in-flight magazine. I have been featured in London, Fabric, Grove, Woman, Natural Health, What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You, IHCAN magazines, as well as The Daily Mail and Express plus the books The De-Stress Effect and How to Hygge.
After my years of experience in personal training I now use that knowledge to develop bespoke corporate wellness initiatives to engage employees on their health and wellness. I also create and deliver online fitness programmes, wellness mastermind groups for a wider world audience and am active daily on social media inspiring people to move more and nurture themselves often.
