How did I get into the Fitness Industry?

From a young age, I performed competitively in various sports (Squash, Football, Field & Track Athletics) and moved into fitness as I began to train more. I found a love for exercise, nutrition and the physiology of the body. I became qualified as a Personal Trainer and began my career working:

– In a Fitness Studio

– As a PT at a commercial gym

– As a 1-to-1 Running Coach

– As a group fitness coach for a local College.

?

My passion never ceased and I spent just about every break between my work hours going off and doing courses and writing up the business plan that would later become RAW.

What is it like to train with me?

With a range of qualifications, I train with all sorts of different people for different needs so the training can be a bit of anything.. HOWEVER, there are a few trends that you might find:

– I will speak WAY too much about the science behind every little component of your training (sorry)

– You will never have two identical sessions (repetition is boring)

– It WILL Be Fun. I always keep things exciting, challenging and don’t accept negativity (you will be punished)

How did I get into the Fitness Industry?

How did I get into the fitness industry? Well, like most of you reading this I was looking to make changes to my lifestyle and health which set me on a path of discovery! Whilst chasing my own goals I discovered many different fitness disciplines – Olympic Lifting, Powerlifting, HIIT, Endurance Training, Yoga, Pilates…. the list goes on. And on! I therefore decided that the best way forward was to become a Personal Trainer as I was so intrigued and wanted to delve deeper into the science. A few years, lots of textbooks and some amazing mentorship – here I am!

What’s it like to train with me?

I whole-heartedly believe that exercise can be immensely enjoyable- not a punishment or something to dread. When training with me I will strive to ensure you leave each session feeling that you have achieved something and excited to come back for more. Of course, hard work is required and a level of dedication and self-discipline is needed as you will be challenged and have to dig deep to get the changes that you want, but know this; it is incredibly rewarding and when you can look back and realise ‘wow, my knees don’t hurt when I kneel anymore’ or ‘I can chase after my grandson and not feel like my chest is going to explode’ or ‘I deadlifted my bodyweight today!’

How did I get into the Fitness Industry?

I have always been interested in sports and as a child participated in a wide range of activities including gymnastics, dancing and swimming where I competed in local events. I took out my first gym membership when I was 18 and my passion for exercise really took off from there. I have since participated in running events, including the King’s Lynn GEAR and Run Norwich, and frequented many fitness classes including Jitsu, Kettlebells, HIIT, Boot Camp, Aerial Hoop, Pole Fitness and Aerial Silks.

I first came to RAW in February 2016 and found myself doing exercises and lifting weights that I never dreamt I would ever be doing…and the consequences of this?…I developed a new level of self confidence and passion for exercise and yep, I was hooked!

Through my time at RAW I also developed a profound interest in the fitness industry and soon decided that this was a career I wanted to pursue at a professional level. The opportunity arose for me to develop a career at RAW and I immediately knew this was what I wanted. I since gained my Fitness Instructor qualification and am now working towards my Level 3 Personal Training qualification through an apprenticeship at RAW.

What’s it like to train with me?

Well, I like to train hard so don’t be fooled by my soft and gentle appearance! I believe that as a member of RAW you are ‘investing in your health’ and so I like to see you put in 110% and, as per all of us at RAW, will support you every step of the way!
