What drives and motivates you in your role?

The feeling that what you’re doing is adding something positive to the world. As a trainer, when you see someone’s, mindset change as they experience the benefits of healthier lifestyle choices, you know that they might become a role model to encourage the same choices for other people.

The community. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what you look like or what you do for work – the customers all support each other and are there for the same reason. Everyone is on the same team, working together. That’s (unfortunately) rare to see in gyms and fitness centres generally, but at B Fit it is a cornerstone of our success.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work?

In between my degree and work, there isn’t much time! I enjoy cooking, playing the piano and long walks in nature when not working or studying.

Where to start…You can never get too old for Star Wars, although I’m certainly partial to a medical drama or a good documentary!

The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is…

Just be you. Pretending to be something you’re not requires so much more energy, and sometimes the last person to realise that is you.
