I started my career in the fitness industry in 1996, gaining a diploma in personal training and advanced fitness instruction. I also gained City & Guilds NVQ in Sports & Recreation.
Since then, I have enjoyed for many years helping people realise the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, including teaching circuit training, undertaking fitness assessments and cholesterol testing.
I have always had a keen interest in rehabilitation and injury prevention and in 2004 decided to channel this interest into studying to become a Pilates instructor and was successful in gaining this qualification, certified by the Oxford & Cambridge RSA Examinations.
I have since gained over 7 years experience in teaching mat based Pilates, from beginners through to advanced, providing courses for Hampshire County Council leisure centres and the private industry.
