I have taught classes for several years from circuits to aqua aerobics, and HOP® is undeniably the ultimate fitness class. I was lucky enough to be in the latest HOP® DVD alongside Rajko and Lavinia and I encourage my clients to incorporate the DVD into their weekly training regime.

When I was in the process of becoming a qualified personal trainer, I arranged a couple of weeks of work experience with the world’s toughest soldiers, training with the Royal Marine Physical Training Instructors. I participated in battle fitness tests, speed marches, circuit training and gruelling runs through the moorlands. It was exhausting but I loved every minute of it.

I live in Hillingdon and work around the West London area training clients at their homes.
