How many years have you worked in the industry: 5 Years What motivated you to be a PT: I have always been into fitness from a young age, I swam for Derby and also competed in track as a junior. I have always been very into cardio and then I found the weight room. I was inspired by bodybuilding and seeing how much your body can change from lifting weights and naturally a lot of people asked me for help in the gym. I really enjoyed that and I really thrive off seeing people hit their goals and targets, and pushing people out of their comfort zones to get the best results. I also love to see people who have never entered a gym before and are very nervous, become regular visitors and I really enjoy seeing their journey.
How your experience can help and motivate your Shredz clients: I am a mother of two and I am now going into my first year of competitive bodybuilding. I know how hard it is to make time for the gym when you are a parent BUT I have proved to everyone that you can be a parent and still reach your fitness goals.
My goals: To keep getting better and better at what I do. Once I hit a goal, ill make another goal. I would like to keep pushing my clients to reach their goals and make sure they are always happy.
