I’m a certified Personal Trainer and Nutritional Therapist based in the UK who specialises in training older adults.
My journey into fitness instruction started in Cyprus when I was in the RAF Regiment. I qualified as a National Amature Body Building Association (NABBA) weight training instructor. After leaving the forces I completed Premier’s Diploma in Fitness Instruction & Sports Therapy (Dip FIST) and then went on to teach at David Lloyds in Solihull – one of the country’s leading gyms for over a decade. Since then I have worked as a team leader at a couple of Lifestyle Fitness Clubs in the Midlands. I now work at TheGym in Sutton Coldfield where I am a personal trainer and strength & conditioning coach.
I’ve helped hundreds of clients to transform their health and their bodies. I’m a strong believer in the benefits of resistance training for people of all ages to help them reach their fitness goals. Science supports my opinion, by saying that strength training is better for you than cardio and for a number of reasons. Firstly, strength training for older adults in their 40s and 50s and especially women in their 50s. This is because of the effect on bones from weight training as it prevents loss of bone density. Importantly many studies show that your longevity of life and also quality of life are both increased by higher levels of muscle as you age. Notably, resistance training combined with a healthy diet can result in increased muscle to take into later life.
As people’s schedules are becoming more hectic, I have decided to offer my services online for coaching clients who don’t have time to visit me in the gym. My online personal training packages are tailored to individuals’ lifestyle and fitness goals. I provide feedback on a weekly basis to ensure clients are on track to achieve their desired results.
