I was always sporty as a youngster but, early into my teenage years, I gained a lot of weight and completely lost all my confidence.
Somehow I pushed myself to go to the gym, and slowly but surely I shifted my excess weight, gained back my confidence, and my self-esteem. This was pure determination and grit, I had no clue about how to drop body fat. I only had the understanding that exercise helps, and was eating minimal with little energy even though the workouts were vigorous.
I learnt that exercise and fitness is not only for physical health, but mental and emotional too. Since then my life revolves around maintaining my fitness but also in helping others achieve a balanced wellbeing through coaching them.
My company Reformation Training is the culmination of years spent at David Lloyds group where I felt alive in a position where I could help people achieve their goals.
I competed in my first ‘physique‘ competition eight months after qualifying as a personal trainer. I was so disappointed as despite an enormous increase and intensity to workouts and dieting for 14 weeks, I was placed sixth out of 26 in my category.
In a way this set back spurred me forwards. A year later after even more training and focus, I competed again and was beyond thrilled with my first place in one category, and fourth in another.
My training was extremely intense and I realised that the key to success as a personal trainer/coach is to adapt a programs on a very individual basis.
