The Fitness Team
I have been a fitness professional since 1983 and a nutrition consultant since 1991. I was a member of the British Judo Team for 10 years followed by a successful 6 year international career in the Fitness and Figure industry.
This has enabled me to combine my extensive nutrition expertise with my knowledge of international sport to produce a unique service to assist people from all walks of life.
I have competed in numerous competitions both nationally and internationally, and have been a British international in both the Miss Figure and Miss Fitness competitions. One of my greatest achievements was becoming a Miss Universe Runner Up in the Miss Fitness Category at the age of 37.
My ongoing interest in fitness and nutrition has been the driving force behind the decision to use my combined knowledge to help others achieve their fitness goals and ambitions.
I first made the Great Britain Athletics Team at the age of 17 and went on to represent Great Britain for over 11 years. My accomplishments include competing in the 100m and 4x100m relay at the 2000 Sydney Olympics and winning a bronze medal at the 2002 Commonwealth Games, where I was also the England Women’s Track Team Captain. I have competed at three world Championships and a European Championships.
I currently hold two national titles in the 200m, three national junior titles in the triple jump and currently coach’s athletics, including Commonwealth and European Silver medallist, Jade Johnson.
In addition to my training, I become a REPS level 3 qualified Personal Trainer, a UK Athletics certified athletics coach (level 2) and a British Amateur Weightlifting Leaders Association coach. I have recently opened my own personal training studio on Great Portland Street and also deliver corporate health and wellbeing programmes.
I have worked with Laura Church for the last 2 ½ years. As well as working for Laura and taking my qualifications, I am a wife and mother of 3 girls. I have had Diabetes Type 1 for over 30 years and therefore eating correctly and exercising is an absolute necessity for me. My diabetes fits into my life and not the other way round.
Of course healthy eating and exercise do not just apply to me but the whole of my family too. My husband and youngest daughter both have a dairy allergy and everything is cooked from scratch, so taking into consideration all ailments!
My job is so very important to me, as I know that I can be of help to anyone who comes to see us. Whatever their age, sex, fitness ability, goals in life, whether short term or long term, if I am able to help somebody turn their dreams into reality then I too am achieving my goals.
I am currently studying my Level 3 qualification in advanced Personal Training and Management.
Qualified since 2008 to REPs level 3, my job satisfaction comes from seeing clients achieve their goals. My training is highly motivational, effective and committed to ensuring every client achieves their maximum potential. Coming from a strong Boxing background has taught me that dedication, stamina and a strong mind set are paramount in achieving ones training goals.
I currently compete in Triathlons and Marathons so know exactly what training, planning and preparation is required to get you into the best condition for endurance events. I have a positive and easy going nature that makes me extremely approachable. I always see results and so will you!
