Training style – Variation is my speciality, I provide something different with my classes each week and I’ll push everyone to the last rep.

I packed in the office life to make the hobby I loved into a career. I’m always active with a crazy passion for football and travelling.

I recently developed a new passion for Health and Fitness, so you can usually find me in the gym out of my normal working hours or playing 5-a-side football with friends. I’m also spin-qualified, one of my more favourable classes.

The one-to-one relationship with my PT clients is extremely valuable, helping them achieve their goals and their personal targets is rewarding for them and myself.

Before starting at Oakhill I used to ski race at a national level and travel across the country to race, in 2017 I was crowned with “English School Ski Champion”. I still enjoy ski racing and try to fit this in when I can, getting to Rossendale to practice, is like my second home to Oakhill.

I have always loved being active and now being able to put my passion into the work environment, means I have a job that really gives me satisfaction. I’m looking forward to qualifying and learning more about the industry.
