What you enjoy most about your job:
My job enables me to help people live longer, happier and healthier lives and I find that very satisfying. Witnessing the increase in self- esteem and confidence that people can gain from exercising is the most rewarding part of my job and I feel lucky to be part of the Active Herts project that is already changing lives for the better.
I have over 10 years’ experience in the Health and Fitness industry and have worked as a Fitness Manager, Personal Trainer and Coach on an Exercise Referral programme that enabled me to train clients of all ages with a variety of health conditions and fitness levels. People are often worried that they will be unable to exercise and my experience enables me to find suitable activities for those that haven’t exercised for a long time as well as those returning to exercise after some time off.
How you like to keep active:
Most of my activity is based around running. I love to enter one of the 5k park runs once a month that are held all over the country and like the fact that it caters for all abilities from walkers to serious runners. I also enjoy swimming and weight training from time to time for a bit of variety. If I’m in the mood for something a bit easier, I’ll go for a walk through the local nature reserve and enjoy making the most of living so close to the countryside.
