PASSION FOR FITNESS
Sport has always been an integral part to my lifestyle. Growing up Judo was my main focus, I loved the intensity, the strength and the skill needed to overcome whoever was infront of you.
From Judo I learnt discipline, control, perseverance and the power of determination .
Throughout my career I had the privilege to compete internationally and at my best I was ranked 5th in the U.K. This is where my love of Sport began.
Since moving to New Zealand my passion for sport and exercise has grown exponentially, having this beautiful country to explore has fueled my desire to learn more and more. In 2017 I discovered crossfit and currently enjoy training and competing. I also coach swimming from pre school age through to Adults and love seeing progression across all these sports.
"Seeing people progress is the most rewarding part of my job"
In my spare time I enjoy cooking as I used to be a chef in the U.K and have recently finished working in commercial kitchens. I like to balance my training and coaching with down time in the kitchen. I also enjoy surfing so you will find me out in Lyall bay whenever there is a wave (not as often as I would like).
One of my favourite pass times are multi day hikes, I love to spend my holidays walking the Tararuas and Ruahines and staying in the back country huts with my partner and our dog Bellatrix.
