Why/how did you choose this career?
I actually never knew what i was meant to do as a career and longed to find what I was truly good at so I decided to start a passion projection – YouTube. I filmed videos from travel, beauty, home, fashion to fitness and it was actually my followers who discovered my talent and made me realise that my passion had been fitness all along. After a little convincing from friends and family I decided to start an online course to become a personal trainer and promised myself that I would save enough money to cover me quitting my job and putting everything into my PT to become fully booked, within 2 weeks I was booked, I’ve never looked back!
What you want to be remembered for?
Making people fall in love with their body, without having to punish it for change.
Most commonly asked question in relation to your job?
But won’t I get bulky?
If you could change 1 thing about the industry you’re in?
The perception that it’s all about looks, i’d love to make people realise that its about enhancing your live, living your best, healthy life for as long as you can, not whether you have abs or a butt.
Special Talent/Party Trick?
oh dammit i don’t have one.. I can do a handstand pushup, does that count?
