At school I was not a confident person I remember only being good at Sport and P.E., because of this ability I was often called upon to represent the school in cricket, badminton & track and field events.
My great love was football and eventually I went on to play at District level, Essex Schools and eventually on books for West Ham, Southend and Wimbledon under 16’s.
Fitness and Exercise has always been my passion and I subsequently went on to in the industry, gaining certificates in Exercise Fitness, IFI Disability, Lower Back Pain and also an Exercise Referral Course involving Disability Awareness.
My great sporting achievements are I have played a very high level of squash after not starting until the age pf 21 but my squash career was sadly hampered by health issues and joint pain caused by Rheumatoid and Psoriatic Arthritis. At the time, I decided not to be beaten by the pain and debilitation and chose to go on a health crusade, networking with specialists to allow me not to take the medication that the NHS was offering that would eventually kill me. I used my sporting and active background to keep me moving and being well.
Exercise, and moreover, coaching of exercise for others has been an inspiration, enabling not only my own wellbeing but above all the achievement in seeing others benefit from my own experience and personal journey.
