I have been in the fitness industry for the past 10 years, helping individuals improve their physical fitness, rehabilitation and movement patterns. I have upgraded my certifications, training and education over the years to help my clients reach their goals.

 

My passion for sport started when I was a young competitive athlete and my experience and training now allows me to offer a well-rounded and balanced program to my clients.
