Achieving a personal best at Chatsworth 10K.

The people and the culture! From day one I felt a part of the Fitism family.

To return to peak fitness following my shoulder injury.

5. What part of your body do you hate the most?
My hands!

I make handmade silver jewellery and love pole fitness.

10. What’s your most embarrassing moment?
Falling asleep in a restaurant toilet ..... after too much prosecco!

11. Why and how did you get into health and fitness?

Felling fit and strong is very empowering and I wanted to help others feel this same 'buzz'. I know that fitness can be life changing and I simply wanted to be a part of this journey so I became a PT.

12. What is your favourite exercise?
Apart from walking my gorgeous German Shephard, It has to be indoor cycling. I love training hard whilst listening to my favourite tunes.
