My philosophy to exercising is more than just dropping down a dress or pants size. I have found through personal experience exercise can shape your mental wellbeing as much as your physical wellbeing. I take a well-rounded approach to clients health that incorporates exercise, nutrition, and mental wellbeing. I have also worked with pre and post natal clients to help them develop fitness and strength throughout pregnancy and after baby. I have also worked with clients who have had issues with their own mental well-being, I myself have experience with depression and anxiety so know how important exercise can be to better one's mental health. It can be said that "exercise is the best form of a natural anti-depressant". I myself use exercise as a recovery tool.
I wish to be able to help others with their own mental well-being, general fitness and strength, and toning goals.

Always been involved in sport and being an outdoorsy kid, activity, and exercise came to me naturally which translated into me playing professional football for 5 consecutive years while completing my masters in Sociology before I chose to get back to academics. One thing that always intrigued me is how athletes could get big(muscular), fast and athletic at the same time. But with a major interest in how early can, athletes start so to have adapted and reaped the maximum benefit as this was something I never got as a young athlete. Hence, choosing to do a specialty paper in strength training in youth. It's a big area of interest for me and will continue exploring all academic avenues to pursue the same. Well, anything that that involved exercise science gets me going, it maybe Strength and conditioning, rehabilitation or leading a healthy active life that can be sustained.


The only thing constant is change and the key to positive change is consistency whether one is a child or adult.
