I am a personal trainer and group fitness instructor based in Chesterfield, it is my dream job, I love it!!
As a personal trainer helping my clients feel better about themselves and reaching their goals is an amazing feeling, it's great to be with them helping them through their journey. I want to continue to help women make long-term changes to their lifestyles so they can feel confident and happy. I love exercise and how it makes me feel and I hope to help people learn to love it too.
I believe that by eating healthily and exercising regularly you can create a lifestyle where you feel happy, energetic and confident. I don't agree with any fad diets, pills or supplements.
I also teach fitness classes in gyms and am available for local cover, the classes I teach are Les Mills Bodypump, Les Mills Bodyattack, Indoor Cycling, HIIT, Circuits and Bootcamps.
My Fitness Journey
I started my fitness journey in 2013 when I decided I wasn't happy with my lifestyle habits and my body shape, I was working abroad so I was eating a lot of convenience foods and social drinking quite a lot. I decided to make a change but knew I needed something to aim for to stick with the decision so I signed up for a half marathon with 8 months to train. The training was so hard to begin with but I knew I needed to carry on, it wasn't long before I started to love it. I finished the half marathon in 1 hour 59 mins and was so happy with that time.
I loved running but wanted to do more so I started to attend fitness classes, I used to attend classes years ago and thought about being an instructor when I was younger but never did anything about it. I attended a Les Mills Bodypump class and I just knew that I wanted to be the one at the front of the class. It just felt that it was the right time to try and be an instructor so I signed up for my Exercise to Music Instructor course. My mum had also just got into her fitness and was attending a Zumba Fitness class weekly, I joined her one week and fell in love with how fun the class was. So after I had passed my Exercise to Music qualification, I signed up for Bodypump and Zumba as my first workshops.
Two years on (and lots of workshops later) I am a personal trainer and helping clients start their journey and I love seeing their fitness improvements week by week. It's so nice to receive messages from clients telling me how amazing they feel and hearing about people giving them compliments on how well they look.
