At the time of writing, I opened Community gyms on my own 6 years ago, with about 20 loyal members. Now we have 5 coaches, over 150 members, train sports teams, sports scholars from local schools, offer massage, personal training and more. I’m passionate about helping people get healthier, fitter, and ultimately happier.Unity Fitness is the cumulation of years of work and I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved here for far, but I know that this is just the beginning.
My passion for sports strength and conditioning combined with Sports Therapy while working in football has lead me to provide a condensed version to personal training clients with the main aims being to improve your general movement quality, improve full body strength and promote a healthy lifestyle. If you have other goals such as weight/fat loss, injury rehabilitation, sport specific goals or just general improvements in strength and fitness I believe the functional approach I provide to sessions based on my practical working experience will help you reach your goals while making positive long term changes to your lifestyle.
I started my journey as a client with Community gyms 4 years ago…since then I’ve been on an incredible mental and physical journey to where I’m at now….Yoga!
My 90 minute Vinyasa Flow sessions are designed to nourish the body and calm the mind…come and try a session!
Having started on my own personal fat loss and fitness journey with Community Gyms over four years ago as a client, I understand how big a challenge it can be and have a passion to help anyone on a similar journey in pursuit of a healthier and happier lifestyle.
I have a background of playing competitive sport; badminton, table tennis and netball, which have given me so many years of enjoyment. This, combined with my positive experience as a client at Community Gyms made me to want to give something back; so after firstly achieving my badminton coaching badge, I began to study for my fitness qualifications and have never looked back. To be able to make a difference in improving people’s health and wellbeing has been one of the best and most rewarding things I have ever done!
In the gym I like to work myself hard and love weight training and boxing, but I use a diverse range of training methods for my clients to suit their individual needs and aim to make each session challenging but fun. I strive to get the best out of all of my clients and hope to provide an experience that has my client leaving the gym happy and looking forward to their next session.

My approach to personal training is not centred solely on your physical development, my philosophy is that coming to the gym should be a part of your week that you really look forward, not dread! It’s time for you and it should contribute to your overall happiness and wellbeing, so my sessions are tailored to you with that in mind. So whether your goals are focused on weight loss, strength and fitness or even stress-relief we can develop a strategy together to take you one step closer to achieving that goal. I regularly coach group sessions and deliver 1-1 personal training, which I can honestly say, is the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
I do have a particular personal passion for Olympic Weightlifting, which is the discipline that I have chosen to practise for the last 2 and a half years, and I have recently qualified as a Level 1 British Weightlifting Coach. However, I use many different training methods and gather inspiration from a variety of disciplines in programming for my clients to keep things fresh and challenging.

My philosophy and approach to coaching is developing one’s health and fitness towards
supporting their life pursuits in and out of the gym environment. Empowering others to develop
confidence and strength in who they are and what they can do. Then utilising and channeling
these to live a life to the fullest potential – a balance of longevity and performance.
Quality and functional training to develop efficient movement is a wonderful tool to be utilised
towards our overall physical and psychological needs and goals.
I am passionate about helping people better themselves through making exercise and training
an enjoyable and important part of their lifestyle.
Within a class environment or 1-2-1 sessions, my goal is to support you to reach your personal
goals whilst supporting your health and wellbeing in the process.
I am driven to ensure that the time you take out of your day to spend with me will leave you
feeling accomplished, energised and strong.
It is also very important to me the positive effects physical activity has on the mindset and
I transitioned into a coaching role after years of playing a variety of sports including hockey and
cricket at county and regional levels. I completed my ski instructing qualifications and have
worked many ski seasons over the last 10 years. My experiences and interests helped develop
my direction towards becoming a Strength & Conditioning coach. I am able to work with you on
any sport-related goals, ski-specific fitness and have experience working in premiership rugby,
ski racing and right now with hockey, cricket and tennis athletes.
When I am not in the gym, you can be sure to find me outdoors! Particularly at the coast,
stand-up paddleboarding, walking & running with my dog, cycling or cold water swimming!
