General Info -  Born in NZ where I have lived for most of my life, moved to London in 201 where I lived and worked for 5 and a half years, spent almost 2 years following that living in the Middle East in Doha Qatar (where I ran my own PT business) and now back living in Essex!  I had a successful Personal Training business at Fitness First in Brentwood Essex for almost 5 years and continued on to launch my own PT studio called 'A.P.T. in the heart of Warley Brentwood in 2012. Its at my private studio where I doing 1-1 Personal Training, Nutrition, Stage Coaching/Choreography and Metafit  bodyweight HIIT training. My goal is to transform people's lives and health to the best of their abilities and to help them achieve their own health and fitness dreams and goals!  


FUTURE GOALS:  I also plan to share my story and 'secrets' in depth one day including working on publishing a series of books to collate and document my own journey from 'fat to fit' in order to help and inspire others and show them step by step how they can achieve their own transformation.  Writing is one of my true passions and I hope that my own hardships and transformation story, the experiences I have endured to date and the client's lives I continue to change will become bestselling stories to benefit people all over the world!

I also hope my writing and passion for people and my drive for everyone to enjoy health and fitness will enable me the chance to travel to do seminars, training camps and motivational speaking to others not only in the UK but around the world to show them just what they are capable of. I also hope my credentials and reputation may be further utilised to grow and develop charitable causes for my 'X22' charity project helping others in need from the homeless to those with challenges including mental, physical and financial.

Competing nationally and internationally is expensive, my goal of writing books to inspire and helping others on a much bigger scale for charitable causes all takes a lot of extra time and money.
