I have always been interested in health and fitness, but it became my passion when my husband was diagnosed with cancer over 10 years ago. I wanted to learn everything I could to aid his recovery and help his body counteract the invasive treatments he was undergoing.
I took a long look at my lifestyle and researched how important both diet and exercise were in achieving long term health and wellness. What we eat can either help or hinder our bodies and I realised I had been eating all the wrong things. My exercise regime wasn’t as effective as it could have been, and I wasn’t making my health a priority. This is when I decided I wanted to take the first step in becoming a health and fitness professional and gained my personal trainer certification.
I started making small changes in my daily routine, and gradually became completely plant based. Even though I was eating more I started to lose weight, my body was functioning properly, I was sleeping better, and I felt amazing! I had more energy to exercise and stepped up my workouts. I helped my husband recover after his treatments had ended and created a health and fitness program that incorporated everything I had learned.
I discovered how a positive change in lifestyle can help manage the stress in our lives, help us to rest, relax and sleep well. I have seen clients gain body confidence and finally feel happy in their own skin. Working with me isn't just about looking good on the outside but feeling amazing on the inside. Shift your focus on how you feel rather than how you look, and you will see the results!
