I have been in the fitness industry for 12 years. In that time have managed a big inner city gym. There was a time in my life that I got sick of being unfit so started running between lamp posts and after that, I was off. I love and have a passion for helping people achieve their goals. Health is not just about diet and exercise but also a positive mind and a happy life.
