She has worked extensively with children and specializes in empowering women through strength to increase their confidence and independence.
“Each person has a different body, each person has different needs, strengths and weaknesses both physically and mentally. It’s logical, then, that each person needs their own fitness program, tailored to them. Creating highly personal workouts is what makes fitness coaching so worthwhile and fun. Get that right and the client wins are phenomenal – you can’t beat that!”
