When and why did you start working in the fitness industry?

I started personal training in 2014 after working as a gym and fitness class instructor for 5 years previously.
Ive always been involved in fitness from a young age, being a hyperactive child i was encouraged to take part in as many sports as possible (football, rugny, swimming, triathlon and gymnastics) just so i would be tired enough to sleep!
Once i got to my teens my main focus was football in which I played throughout the Welsh Leagues until a serious knee injury in December 2016 forced me to retire. sad/crying face. Now it is my sole aim to help clients achieve their individual goals.

What are your specialities and preferred methods?

My main approach focuses on whole body compound movements (squats, deadlifts, presses) combined with bodyweight training and conditioning work as i believe this way of training covers most of the basic fundamentals of fitness, whilst burning calories/fat and gaining strength and cardiovascular fitness. What more could you want?! 

What are your hobbies and interests?

I'm passionate about football (huge Crystal Palace fan), weight training, heavy metal/reggae music, my dog Nelson, and spending time with friends and family.

What is your favourite healthy meal, and cheat meal?

I love fajitas as they are well balanced nutritionally, quick and easy to prepare/cook and most importantly tasty!
I have a weakness for chocolate bourbon biscuits.
