I currently work as a personal trainer and run my own company Cats Eye Fitness.

I have been involved in sport since a young age; I began horse riding aged four and I have competed in equestrian events over several years. I began skiing as a child and my interest in winter sports continues as I help teach special needs children to skate and play ice hockey at Slough Ice Arena for SPICE.

I joined a gym as a teenager and was immediately hooked on weight training. I went on to compete in a couple of NABBA/EFBB figure classes. Much of my personal training revolves around weight circuits and kettlebells.

I have been training in the martial art of Shorinji Kempo since 1986 and I help run a club in Uxbridge. I have trained at seminars in Japan and Europe and took my 4th Dan grading this summer. It was this discipline that first introduced me to the concept of training the mind and body together and this is why I was attracted to the Hour of Power which has the same philosophy. I also like the way HOP balances the upper and lower body while combining cardio and resistance training at the same time. Not only does this directly compliment my martial arts training but it provides what I believe is a very balanced and functional way of training.
