Personal Fitness Instructor and Sports Massage, Ashford Kent.

My Experience & Background

About Me

I am a fully qualified Personal Trainer & Sports Masseuse with 12 years of experience helping a variety of clients ranging in ages from 17 – 78, all with different goals, fitness levels, and training needs.

I have represented England at an international level in Karate for 9 years.  Winning Bronze at the World Championships and receiving medals in various other competitions including a Gold at the British Open Nationals, so I understand what it takes to compete and win at the highest level. After suffering a prolapsed disc in the midst of my competitive career, I had to use my skills and knowledge to train correctly and rehabilitate from the injury. Having also played county level in cricket, tennis, and water polo, I have the experience and knowledge to create a training regime to help you perform at your very best, whatever your sport.

As a trainer, I much prefer the carrot rather than the stick form of encouragement. I thoroughly enjoy training myself and I want your experience to be just as fun whilst focusing on your targets and goals. I endeavor to effect a powerful and positive change by helping you ignite a passion for healthy living, fitness, and wellbeing.
