Why did you sign up as a TruBe personal trainer?
I love the flexibility of the app. It allows me to choose the hours when I want to train. It also gives me the opportunity to train clients in a variety of locations including outdoors.
What is your biggest client success story?
All of them are special and unique in there own way. I don’t just enjoy seeing the physical transformation in clients but also in the mental side. I had one particular client who became much more confident and outgoing after seeing the physical changes in their body.
What’s you’re favourite way to really finish off the end of a session?
You can’t beat a good circuit. Non stop work for 5 minutes switching between different body parts and different pieces of equipment.
What do you add your shake/smoothie to give you a boost?
Chia and hemp seeds are a nice addition to a smoothie.
What’s your favourite healthy rejuvenating post-workout meal?
EGGS EGGS EGGS in any form! Poached eggs with turkey bacon and avocado gives you everything you need after a heavy session. Complimented nicely with a true Italian espresso with some coconut oil.
What was your last health and fitness obstacle and how did you overcome it?
When I stopped dancing full time it was a big shock to the system. I needed something to fill that void. The gym used to be my stress relief from work and now the gym is my work. So trying to find a positive work life balance away from the gym has been quite a challenge.
What is your favourite instagram account you follow?
It has to be @RyanJTerry. He has a great physique and he is a great UK representative in worldwide competitions.
What is the best piece of advice you have received from a mentor?
Try not to overload yourself with too much stuff. Find out what you are good at and make yourself a master at that before you move onto adding to it. Perfect your business before adding extra things to it.
Where’s your favourite place to work out?
My hometown, Bognor Regis beach. It’s got everything you need. Fresh air, the sea and an outdoor gym. It really does rival muscle beach!
