When I was 17 years old, I had a difficult decision to make. Do I give up dance and go study law at University or try to make a career out of teaching dance? I chose not to go to university, as dancing was all I ever knew and loved. So, when I fell out of love with dance it was tough.

But one door closes and another opens, and I started working on a zero-hour contract at a gym getting involved in more and more projects and events. Before I knew it, I had completed my level 2 fitness instructor course and was teaching a regular dance fitness class. I got a full-time job and was really happy making a career in the fitness industry. I had never thought about teaching fitness as a career but here I was, and I loved it.

Since then I’ve completed my level 3 PT course, I teach regular classes and I train my lovely clients. Exercise is not only an element of my job but is a great way for me to escape from the real world. I’m a bit of an over thinker and find other than sleep, exercise is the only thing that can take my mind off things. My life literally evolves around fitness, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
