MEET THE TEAM
I grew up in the gym environment and always knew I was going to work in the industry. I have 20+ years experience and have seen a lot of changes. I love working one on one with clients and love a challenge! I will train anyone but specialise in weight management, body conditioning, health and wellness.
Sport has always been a big part of my life, and I’ve enjoyed resistance training from a young age. After getting fascinated by the science behind it as a teenager, I decided to get qualified as an instructor and PT. I’ve now been at G&T for 5 years, and have recently also started a degree in Strength, Conditioning and Rehabilitation.
I have been working here since qualifying in 2012 and enjoy everything about it! Specialising in weight loss, senior mobility and child fitness, I like to try my hand at just about anything to help others achieve their goals! As well as instructing in the gym, I love to teach and take part in group exercise classes.
I’m currently studying strength and Conditioning degree and working alongside the Birmingham FA and Stoke City FC. For the past 6 years, fitness has been a major driving force and passion of mine, teaching me to be self-confident and more sociable. Being able to help someone reach their goals is the best part of this job.
Growing up I was heavily involved in a number of sports and through this got a passion for anything sport related. I have played rugby for a number of year and learning specific ways of training for this sport. I then followed this passion further and got my PT qualification and sports massage to help me enable others to get the most out of their sport and to have the correct level of training to do so.
I have always been athletic and very interested in sports no matter what it is and love anything competitive! I have been working at Gym & Tonic for quite a few years now with my main role being behind the scenes promoting the club online and handling the tech side of things but get involved with just about anything that needs doing here.
Growing up I was always into sport, especially football and have family members who compete in the fitness industry leading me to start around 5-6 years ago. After suffering with a back injury, I decided to get into personal training, and now specialise in body re-composition, weight loss and toning.
