In 2016 I took voluntary redundancy from the Civil Service as I knew I needed a career change, something completely different to working in an office. This gave me time to think about what I wanted to do and I realised that I wanted to work with other people to become fitter and healthier, it felt like a good fit for me as I have always enjoyed being active and playing sports. So, I qualified as a personal trainer in 2016 and have not looked back.
I have now been working as a PT for over 6 years. I have gained in confidence over this time and have learnt how to get the best out of each individual I work with. If you train with me you get a really experienced and knowledgeable PT that has worked with many different people (of all ages and abilities) to achieve their individual goals. I have many long-standing clients that continue to improve their fitness through training with me.
I believe that through exercise you can improve how you feel and I think that the mental benefits of keeping active are really important. If I have had a tough day and feel tired before a workout I know that after exercise I will be in a much better mood with more energy. The difficult part is getting motivated to exercise if you are feeling low, tired or stressed. This is when working with a personal trainer can really help.
