A Little Background
Almost getting to my 50’s, I now find that health & fitness is more important to me than ever before. It is truly my belief that feeling fit and healthy helps to brings happiness to your life and my aim is to do just that for my clients also. Improved fitness is achievable for all of us and I want my clients too to fall in love with this fitness & health feeling that I enjoy so much!
As a former Black Belt in Taekwondo with a background in Alternative Medicine (Naturopathy & Homeopathy) I am a dedicated fitness professional enthusiast. Fitness has been part of my life for many years but saying that, as a child/ teenager I hated sport. Think of the child that was always extremely sick and poorly, that was me. Never short of doctors’ notes to excuse me from taking part in exercising. I was always found sitting on the bench during sports days.
After Leaving High School
Deciding to start trying to get better and taking care of myself, I made the decision to join a local gym with my friend and soon after I was hooked. I dabbled with Bodybuilding and then moved onto Tae-kwon-do where I found my beast and discovered my strengths. Then, I participated in several tournaments and fought for my former country.
Once I came to realize that I am deeply interested in movement, it drove me towards a different approach. An approach that fitness should be fun and more importantly, fitness should be forever.
Then I moved to the UK and I decided to use my energy and enthusiasm in the health and fitness industry whereby I decided to become a Body Pump instructor.
Shortly after this I became extremely ill and was not able to train for several years so I sadly turned away from the Health & Fitness Industry and moved into Alternative Medicine as a last resort to help cure myself and to see what was happening to my body. After several years I became a qualified Homeopath and Naturopath.
The Fitness Bug in Marbella
But for sure the bug got a hold of me again years later when I started playing tennis and swimming. After that I started building up my strength and stamina and this helped me not only with my asthma but with my confidence. Finally, I started training again and I truly found my soul in the gym, I realised that I was born to do this!
The Personal Training Diploma I received in the UK gives me the knowledge to give you the best training advice. But I have now re-located to Marbella which I call home. What I do is what I love and it is no longer a career for me but rather a lifestyle! The energy that being active gives me is what I live for. Which is why I so enjoy sharing all the knowledge I have with my clients.
My hope is that I can help you build an appetite and desire for a happy and healthy lifestyle.
