I am a 25 year old personal trainer based in Plymouth, When I started my fitness journey I had no idea what I was doing, although I had taken part in sports from a young age and had participated in running events. My first long running event was Plymouth Half marathon in 2013 which lead me to go on to start educating myself on nutrition, training and wellbeing. This enabled me to run further and faster than I ever thought I could.
In 2014, at the age of 22 whilst training for my first marathon I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, this is where I learned that progress is never linear. For me it was a huge set back as physically and mentally I was not my best. However, it has given me a greater understanding of those who suffer with similar conditions and what it takes to adapt to the many things that can stand in your way.
Despite this I was able to get back into training which was challenging before I went on to complete my first Marathon in Brighton in 2016, and then the year after beat that time by 25 minutes. My diagnosis inspired me even more to pursue a career in the fitness industry, which was something I had always wanted to do. This was so that I could help others achieve their goals and transform their lifestyles to reach their full potential. I have worked with people from all backgrounds,from sports players to those completely new to exercising helping people on their journeys educating on all aspects of health and performance.
