Why fitness is more than just a physical goal!

I've always been someone deeply involved in sports, and during my teenage years, my main passion was football. My introduction to the gym was initially a way to build strength and size to improve my football performance. Little did I know, this would spark a lifelong passion for fitness.


With over 10 years of experience in the fitness industry, from being a gym instructor and teaching classes to continuously setting new personal challenges, I've gained a wealth of knowledge. This experience has equipped me to help others achieve their goals and feel better about themselves.



Initially, I viewed fitness as primarily a physical goal. However, last year, everything changed, and fitness became so much more. On August 14, 2023, I was diagnosed with a form of blood cancer called Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. My world was turned upside down. I knew many things would change, and my energy levels would be limited. Despite months of intense treatment, I made it a priority to maintain some form of exercise routine. I adapted my training, set realistic goals, and tried not to be too hard on myself on the days I couldn't make it to the gym or didn't have the best sessions. Continuously showing up made me feel like I was staying ahead in the battles I faced.

This experience made me realise that health and fitness go far beyond just looking good for the summer. It has a profound impact on our mental well-being, giving us hope and belief that we can achieve anything if we are willing to keep putting in the work.


From the moment of my diagnosis, I knew I wanted to dedicate my time to helping others improve their mental and physical well-being through health and fitness. That's why I became a Level 3 Personal Trainer.


My journey has shown me that fitness is not just about the body. Whether you're dealing with a major health challenge or just looking to improve your everyday life, fitness can be a powerful tool for transformation. I look forward to helping others find their strength and resilience through their own fitness journeys.
