What do you enjoy about being a part of the TruBe Team?
I love everybody’s energy and enthusiasm ,from the trainers to the tech team. We all want this app to succeed and are willing to go the extra mile.
Where is your favourite healthy date?
It has to be the organic Medjool variety from Egypt 😉 I think you mean where do I go for some healthy time out? My favourite would have to be tree-climbing in my local park.
What is your biggest client success story?
Firstly, I worked with a small group of young offenders. Four out of the six managed to train with me for two years. They developed a martial arts code of respect and found a new inspiration to keep them focused.
Secondly, I helped a bride-to-be prepare for her wedding day. She trained three times a week for three months with nutritional support. Not only did the training help her lose 6kg, but she toned up and felt amazing. She also benefited from regular stress relief by hitting pads when kickboxing. A must for every bride feeling the pressure! Now a mother of three, she still finds time to put the gloves on every week and train with me.
What do you add to your shake/smoothie for a boost?
I don’t drink smoothies! I prefer to take on my nutrients in their whole organic form. I enjoy eating my fruit and veg as Mother Nature intended!
What was your last health and fitness obstacle and how did you overcome it?
I decided to re-enter competitive kickboxing and in 2013 won the Unified World Championships welterweight kickboxing world title.
What is your favourite piece of TruBe equipment?
The GripR. It is an ideal training tool that allows clients to work on many planes of motion and is a really versatile piece of kit.
How do you treat yourself?
I enjoy playing with my children – it’s fun and they actually give me a workout!
What is your favourite instagram account you follow?
What is your favourite motivational quote?
“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”
What is the best piece of advice you have received from a mentor?
“One more round to go and you’ll be a World Champion.”
