Qualifications & Experience
I am a great believer in the phrase ‘None of us ever stop learning’. Even after 13 years of training people I am still constantly working to increase my knowledge in order to help my clients.
Over the past 13 years I have attended lots of courses and earned many qualifications and certificates (see below). Without a doubt though, I have learned more from guinea pigging my own body and simply watching the way people move.
I often feel that fitness professionals can become precious about their discipline. Most of the trainers I have meet follow one training style or particular health & fitness guru. A Pilates instructors answer is usually Pilates, a Yogi’s answer is usually Yoga.
I cheerfully admit that over the last ten years I have stolen ideas from exercise gurus, Yogis, dietitians, chiropractors, physical therapists, osteopaths and even other trainers. My philosophy is simple, if it works I use it if it doesn’t I don’t. I also regularly talk to or meet up with other trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors and other specialists in order to share ideas.
