Soul Cycle, Los Angeles

I always look to do new things when I am in new places, and LA was no different. I knew about Soul Cycle from instagram, and some people who I follow rave about it. With so many of their studios nearby, I signed Michiel and I up to the Saturday morning class. Soul Cycle is indoor cycle workout classes with a twist – it is done in the dark, to high intensity music, you move Read more…

Proud Trainer

As a personal trainer, it is in me to bring out the best in people, which I think I can do quite well. From ironman, to swimmers, aspiring boxers, people who have so many different goals. What I have to rely on though, is that persons determination and drive too. It isn’t all one way, and as much as I can inspire people, it is ultimately my clients’ job to show up and give it Read more…

Training from Paradise

Whilst being away, I have been filming some exclusive workout videos for my clients in Barcelona. They think they can escape me that easily… I have been enjoying doing them so much! Especially with those views behind me! I went through a stage when I was terrified of filming myself. Some negative comments years ago on social media about me knocked my confidence a lot. These videos have been great to restore my confidence and Read more…

Realisation Moments

I’M IN HAWAII MAN! 🌴 Literally what was going through my head here…of course I need the cheesy water shot! I am the luckiest person in the world to experience the world this way, and pinch myself every day I’ve travelled the past few years 🌎 it’s not just luck, it’s taking every chance, every opportunity possible, working my ass off and just saying YES to things that scare the sh*t out of me… 🙏🏼 Read more…

Life without Data

On all my trips I do outside of Europe, I don’t add data to my phone. I have wifi when we are in the places we stay, but other than that, nada. I do this so I can enjoy the surroundings. Picking Pineapples on the side of the road in Hawaii As cliche as that sounds. It really helps to not be distracted – when a message comes through usually, it’s then in my head, Read more…

Hawaii & LA Bound!

I am off to support my client and friend Michiel with his half ironman in Hawaii! I am so excited for this adventure! Of course this means the studio will be shut, just for a few weeks, but don’t worry clients: you will all have access to some exclusive workout videos which I will be filming on my travels! You can follow our blog and adventures here. I absolutely love travel, and without going on Read more…

In the Mind

Goals are important. They give us determination, help us feel like we are working towards something we want, add structure. In the studio, I see many people, with many different goals. From wanting to lose some body fat,  become stronger, increase endurance, or simply just to FEEL better in themselves. I always try to help my clients manage those goals, in a sensible way. As a woman, bombarded by the “perfect body” idealistic look from Read more…

Clap when others win!

Surround yourself with people on the same mission as you. Last week I had a lunch date with my friend Michelle, owner of ethical fashion brand www.DiscoverBoutique.com, we chatted, shared experiences, talked about our businesses, good points, bad points – and my god, it felt so good to just talk about it! So many people know how amazing and free it is to be self employed, and let me tell you, having your own business is Read more…

Supporting my Ironman Trainee

My weekend has been filled with great training sessions and good vibes! Saturday I spent the day supporting my client Michiel on conquering his Olympic distance triathlon! Against the odds, we train on, and conquer milestones!  The best feeling as a trainer is watching your clients do things they once thought impossible…  I love my job! It is the most satisfying thing in the world helping people this way. Check out how Michiel did here! 

Being Interviewed!

Yesterday, I had the great pleasure to meet and be interviewed by Jay Kali. Jay owns many successful gyms in Mexico, and wanted to ask me some questions about my journey from Manchester corporate job, to Barcelona PT with my own studio! He inspires me so much, and is a big deal in the industry, so I was a little nervous for this one! It went down so well, and Jay and his wife were Read more…
