Your Favourite Way to Exercise:
Strength and conditioning – weight training.
Your Favourite Class to Teach:
Build (focussed around getting stronger) or Build and Breathe (focussed on a combination of getting stronger and fitter!).
Your Personal Training Style:
My personal training style is malleable and adaptable, each programme is based on the individual client and their needs. Every client is different and requires a unique approach.
How do you Treat Yourself?
Your Best Moment as a Personal Trainer:
My best moments have come from a message or comment from a client about how their training with me inside the gym has helped improve their quality of life outside of the gym. Having a positive impact on someones life is why I love what I do.
Your Favourite Piece of Equipment and Why:
Dumbbells – Dumbbells can be used for any and everything. They allow for more freedom in exercise selection and can be used for any goal and during any workout. Dumbbells can be used as the only piece of equipment to complete a full body session in its entirety.
