“Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
My career in health and fitness was first sparked when I entered Dundee University Sports Centre as an undergraduate. What began initially as a hobby and a means of self improvement soon crystalised itself into a way of life. Whilst studying at Moray House and eventually graduating with a Diploma in Sports Management, I underwent formal training in my spare time to become an accredited Personal Trainer which would allow me to share my energy and enthusiasm for fitness with others in a professional capacity.
Over the years that followed I’ve worked both within the UK and overseas as a Personal Trainer and have had the privilege of being able to work along side top strength and conditioning coaches and trainers, whose friendship and knowledge have helped me to refine and continue to broaden my own skill base. I successfully placed 3rd in the First Timers Category for the Mr Scotland 2008 NABBA Bodybuilding Competition. Most recently working in London for 2 years as a Personal Trainer and Reformer Pilates Teacher with Ten Health and Fitness, London’s leading provider of Dynamic Reformer Pilates and Personal Training.
Currently I work as a Freelance Personal Trainer and divide my time between the Pure Gym located at Edinburgh Exchange Crescent as well as providing Pilates, Sports Massage Therapy and One to One Personal Training Sessions at Balanced Edinburgh's Stockbridge Physio/Pilates Studio. I'm also commited to developing my holistic service provision further and am currently undergoing training to become a qualified Hypnotherapist which I aim to successfully complete by the end of this year.
