I have been passionate about sport and fitness for as long as I can remember, it has always been part of my life in some capacity. I took up Thai boxing around 10 years ago in London. I very quickly became hooked and as my competitive side surfaced I was keen to take things further. I trained hard and competed all over the world for around 7 years, in places such as Las Vegas, Thailand, Canada, Europe. My greatest achievement to date was winning 5 World titles. Before that I won 2 European titles, a British and an English title. I spent the best part of 2012 living in Thailand, training and competing full time. I have been working as a personal trainer for around 4 years.
I retired from fighting early 2014 which is when I found CrossFit. It changed the way I looked at fitness and I remember having a light bulb moment within the first week of training. ‘Why had I not discovered this sooner?!’ It changed the way I trained and the way I coached. I believe that without mastering basic functional movements you will never be able to perform optimally in almost anything you do. CrossFit gave me the opportunity to help get stronger and healthier and stay that way for longer. Now I have the chance to help others do the same. When I met the team at Perpetua I quickly realised that they shared the same passion as I do. I am constantly learning and we help push each other to achieve our goals together.
As well as coaching at Perpetua, I try to test myself regularly in competitions. It helps keep me on my toes, keeps me in shape and is a great opportunity to meet new people outside of our box. But above all I like to train in regular classes at our box when I can and just have fun. After all that is what we are all here for!
I feel blessed that I am able to do what I do and will always try my hardest to perform the best I can and in turn help others perform to the best of their ability. I thrive on being able to share my knowledge with like-minded people. Seeing them grow both mentally and physically whilst helping them achieve their dreams. I am a firm believer that if the mind is strong, then the physical possibilities are endless.
