Experience

I’ve been into fitness and sport from a young age. My sporting background is in Boxing, where I was lucky enough to travel the World as an amateur and competed in over 100 bouts. This was invaluable experience and gave me the opportunity to train and work alongside some of the elitist athletes of the today.

I’ve been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a gym instructor, Group exercise instructor, self employed personal trainer, I have owned multiple fitness businesses and have worked with business owners all around the World as a fitness business coach.

Boxing training, Kettlebell training and Over 40’s fatloss
