Where it all started - 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 very 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 had 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 to 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 class, 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 and have continued to train in other programmes.

 

As a personal trainer, I am helping other ladies start their own fitness and healthy lifestyle journey. I love seeing their fitness improvements and hearing how amazing they feel about their progress. I hope to continue this for as long as possible.
