Our programmes have been born out of experience. I am a former professional athlete and after transitioning to a coach I have always thought myself as fit and healthy. But I was exhausted from busy work and family life all the time, constantly stressing about eating and food. It got to the point where I was not the best version of myself and I had symptoms of metabolic syndrome. I therefore went looking for better answers. I found the answers and they have made me healthier, stronger and happier all without suffering. I can help you find the answers just like my clients have. If you really want change to happen you have to be prepared to do something you have never done before.
