Elite Conditioning owner and level 3 personal trainer, fitness class instructor, running coach & running technique instructor.

“If it scares you
it’s probably the thing you should do most.”

I have over 17 years fitness industry experience as a level 3 personal trainer, focusing on weight loss clients for the first 10 years, a fully qualified Body Pump, RPM, Insanity, Boxercise, PiYo and boot camp instructor for 15 years at a local studio.

Running Mantra:

The pain is never really real,
it’s a case of mind over body.

In 2012 I trained as a running coach and running technique instructor which brought a specialised division to Elite Conditioning with a focus on running and sports related fitness training.

I started running at 13 when I was spotted at a local school athletics meeting, I went on to compete for Berkshire in the 100, 200 and 400 m. I took a break from competitive athletics to have a family and this is where my passion for all things running began.

Since then I have:

  • run over 20 half marathons,
  • 8 marathons,
  • 2 x 50 km ultra-marathons,
  • a 50 mile ultra-marathon,
  • Snowdon mountain marathon

I have recently returned to competitive athletics competing as a Master athlete.

In early 2019 I also trained for a boxing match for charity and like to keep mixing up my cross training so am often found trying many other sports from Pole Fitness, Ariel Hoop, Boxing, Bike and a new found love of fitness team events.

I embraced all things fitness and like to inspire people with my passion and the belief that you can achieve the unthinkable.
