I have been a former National swimmer until aged 16, then talent scouted to the World Class programme for Triathlon where I was a UK Sport funded and TASS University scholar athlete at Loughborough University.
I have represented Great Britain for Triathlon at the World and European Junior Elite and U23 Champs.
I have also been World Biathle Champion (run-swim-run) in 2007 and European champion in 2008. From there I graduated with a BSc Hons Sport & Exercise Science degree at Loughborough University, and went on the obtain a professional license to race the half ironman triathlon. My greatest achievement there was coming 3rd Pro female in Galway, 2013.
Along with this I have achieved many other things, my four children being the greatest of them all! I have also managed to over come disordered eating which was a side effect of high stress and high performance expectations when I was an elite athlete. This has helped me to understand clients and in particular, female athletes on a much deeper scale. So much so that I have been fortunate enough to share my experiences and story across the country; NOW! magazine, The Telegraph, The Sun, Closer magazine, as well as appearing on This Morning Television and ITV Anglia News.
I am a Mobile Level 3 Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage Therapist. I trained for this qualification whilst at my time at Loughborough. I studied in the evenings at Loughborough college. From there I undertook my qualifications to become a British Triathlon Coach certification, as well as my Personal Training and Nutritional course.
My goal is to help people to get the very best out of themselves, whether it is mentally, physically or emotionally. They usually go hand in hand! Nothing gives me more satisfaction than coming away knowing that I have made a positive impact on someone. This is why I started the bootcamp classes, as a way to get a community fitter, healthier and to form a social setting around like minded individuals.
