My fitness journey began in college when I developed a massive interest in exercise and nutrition. Attending the gym regularly has become my habit for over 5 years and now I can’t imagine my life without it. I decided to develop a career in this field, therefore, I went to study Exercise Science at the University of Huddersfield and undertaken other courses to improve my knowledge and abilities.
I am an energetic fitness instructor and personal trainer with a background in weight and strength training. I have a passion for helping people reach their goals whether this is weight loss, muscle gain or overall fitness.
I am currently finishing my degree. During my study at the University I have also completed:
Level 3 Personal Trainer & Level 2 Gym Instructor
Level 2 Exercise to Music
Level 3 Sports Massage Therapy
My fitness journey started from a young age where I excelled in a variety of sports, from Football to Athletics. During my college studies in 2007, I wandered into my local gym with little knowledge regarding strength & conditioning yet I immediately developed a passion for improving my own health & well-being.
Fast forward to 2012, as an avid gym-goer and dedicated Martial Artist, I founded the University of Huddersfield Taekwon-Do Club. As a senior student and three-time gold medalist, I discovered that I possessed the attributes for coaching furthermore, assisting my fellow TaeKwon-Do students with regards to developing their technique & athleticism.
This contributed to multiple gold-medal wins in the 2017 British University TaeKwon-Do League and the 2018 European Championships.
In 2017, I achieved my Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training and have incorporated my experience in Martial Arts into my warm-up and cool-down routines; which can be tremendously overlooked yet vitally important to enhance ones mobility and flexibility.
I specialise in Functional Training, Martial Arts Conditioning as well as volunteering my services to the LGBT+ community.
I started my education at Woodhouse Primary School going on to Rastrick High School, followed by Rastrick sixth form college. I then went to university in Bolton, Lancashire where I studied Sports Rehabilitation. From this not only did I gain a qualification but also gathered a lot of experience in the field of sports massage.
During my time at university I was given the opportunity to visit different sporting venues whilst attending work placement; venues such as Wigan Warriors RLFC, Leigh Centurions RLFC, Rochdale FC and Stoke City FC. These placements allowed me to receive first-hand experience working with both professional and international athletes.
Since graduating I started my working life by offering a mobile massage service, which has helped me build up a good clientele base. Now that my business has grown, I am now in a position to expand and have recently agreed to join the team at Thongsbridge Tennis Club. With over 6 years experience I feel I have a lot to offer the members in the way of recovery treatments and sports massage.
Outside the world of sports massage I am a massive fan of Huddersfield Town. I have held a season ticket for over 15 years. I have a love of music and in my spare time I enjoy playing my guitar.
