“As a child I only really did sport to stop putting on weight, I was a tennis and swimming coach but more because kids are meant to get involved in these hobbies, not because I enjoyed it. Fitness wasn’t really my thing despite growing up in a family that walked marathons, ran half’s,  captained cricket teams and trained to become a PT.

Skip to uni and I was more interested in clubbing and cheesy chips then keeping fit and I put on an extra layer of chub. Post uni/working life I got a PT, joined a gym and due to some things that changed my life I turned to running a lot more. With an events job changing my routine daily, it is hard to keep it up when deliveries of food and wine are plentiful. Pre lockdown I was due to go to the Philippines, I was very much on the London Barry’s/1Rebel hype, running on treadmills in the pitch black until I was nearly sick.

Then came lockdown, a cancelled holiday & mums stockpiling of Easter eggs, all the effort I had put into classes was gone. I started running but got bored of my routes and when my pal mentioned these classes I thought why not. I’m isolating at my family home and asked my mum if she was up for joining. 17 workouts later and we are both tuning in where we can. We both feel fitter then ever, I just hope I can keep it up when I start working and commuting again, it keeps me motivated and it’s great to see others.”
