I have been involved in the fitness industry for over 25 years starting with teaching aerobics classes in the 80’s.
After a year at Wits doing a BPhys Ed, I wanted to go into sports psychology, which took me to UNISA where I completed my BA psychology in 1998. Although I loved the subject, I realised I wanted to be more hands on with training and fitness.

In 1999 I completed my Spinning Instructors course with Johnny G and taught both aerobics and spinning at the Health and Racquet clubs and at the Anglo American corporate gym for several years.
I completed a personal training course with the Institute of Fitness Professionals in 2005 and started my personal training studio.

In 2007 I was employed by Anglo American as gym manager, where I remained until 2015. During this time I felt it imperative to keep my skills up to date and made sure that there was a variety of classes available for gym members. This led me to Kettle Bells and I completed my level 2 Instructor Course with Trent Murgatroyd of IKFF.

In line with my commitment to keeping up to date with technology and fitness trends, I have recently completed a Wattbike certification, which is enabling me to assist fellows cyclists improve their technique and strength.

On a personal level, I have competed in a number of sporting activities including adventure racing (Swazi Extreme 2004), mountain biking (Cape Epic 2005 and many other stage races), road running (two Comrades marathons, five Two Oceans and numerous other marathons), rock climbing and scuba diving. I also enjoy horse riding and hiking every now and then.
Thanks to my experience in a wide range of activities and exposure to current trends, I am able to assist and advise my clients on an individual basis and create training programmes that will be both beneficial and fun.
