Hey Fiona Here,
I wanted to reach out to you all and share with you My Health & Fitness Journey so far, so you can get to know more about me.
It began from the age of 5 when I was fortunate enough my parents got us a permanent move to the United States & that got me started playing tennis, which led me to playing competitively across the country through to my late teens. Whilst playing tennis, I was also involved in a lot of athletics and ballet in America. But In my early teens my mum had to move us back to England, so I continued to try pushing for a professional tennis career in England, but all the hours of coaching and travel was too expensive for my mum and there wasn’t any scholarships in England at that time. So unfortunately, I had to let the tennis dream go. From here, I knew I needed to be doing something athletic for a living. So, I started training at the gym and grew a huge desire and passion to pursue a career in the health & fitness industry, as I wanted to be able to share my passion for health, fitness & wellbeing with as many people as possible, helping others on their health & fitness journeys. So, I went onto obtain my diploma in personal training & sports massage therapy qualifications and set up my personal training business in England.
From here, I then discovered the Ashtanga Yoga Method and began to practice daily, I fell in love with how athletic and challenging it was for me physically and mentally. I have never experienced pain like it but also so pleasurable. From here I knew I wanted to learn more about yoga and myself spiritually and knew to do this I needed to go practice & meditate and live the yoga philosophy in the birth place of yoga. So, I travelled to India on my own to study the Ashtanga YOGA Vinyasa Method and gained my Ashtanga Vinyasa Teaching certification whilst there. With all the benefits I found This method had to offer athletes in sport, I started specializing in teaching sports specific yoga sessions to Football, MMA & Boxing professionals in England to enhance their performance, prevent injuries, increase speed, agility, flexibility and improve mindset.
Along the way, my desire grew to be back dancing again, & expressing my body through movements & synergy. It complimented my yoga practice so well and I went onto study Dance & performing Arts, studying Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary and choreography. I love being creative with my body and also enjoy the challenge of the technical side of the dance training. I loved the look my physique achieved with this type of training technique alongside lifting weights and I used my practicle technical experience from dancing to implement this into aspects of my personal training methods with my female clientele to assist in achieving a very feminine look that is sculpted, tight and strong.
I have been personal training since 2010 helping many men & women on their health & fitness journeys.
My mission is to help and inspire as many men & women as possible to achieve their ideal body, optimum health, to be confident, healthy and happy.
