As a Pre and Post Natal trainer its a pleasure to see my clients enjoying being fit and healthy throughout their pregnancies.

Gone are the days where exercise was a complete no-no, there is now so much more awareness of the benefits.

There are still some misconceptions out there so Ive teamed up with my client and friend Sarah Heywood, founder of www.better babie...

Its important to remember that different goals from different people require different action when it comes to exercise and nutrition.

I am the biggest believer in long term goals that are sustainable and progressive change when it comes to my clients, both physically and mentally. There is a reason why there is the word 'personal' in personal training.

As the majority of my clients are at home with small babies, its my job to bring the gym to them.

Some would argue that theres only so much you can do with home training before the body gets used to it and you stop seeing results...

Since my diagnosis of endometriosis I have been really keen to find out a lot more about what I can do to eat better to relieve the symptoms and hopefully help others in doing so.

Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to life experiences and with the fast paced world we live in, its a little too common.

Everyone experiences it from time to time. Work and family life, new job, loss of a loved one, illness etc can all trigger stress.

In the short term, stress can even be beneficial to our health, it can help us cope with potential...

My fitness journey started 5 years ago whilst living in Dubai.

I began to see a personal trainer myself after indulging a little too much in the lifestyle there in my first year. 

I was inspired so much by the little changes he made to my diet and habits and seeing my body change from exercise.

From then I was hooked. I had never felt so fit and healthy.

I decided...

Sitting at home recovering from a laparoscopy procedure because of my endometriosis, it got me thinking..how many women are actually suffering from this disease and don't realise it?

After years of very painful periods, hormonal acne breakouts and chronic fatigue I genuinely thought this was normal. My job as a personal trainer can be tiring and with early start...

A lot of people ask me which is the best composition of carbs,protein and fats for weight loss. This is a very general question and can be quite specific for each person,depending on their goals.

There is no magic combination that is a one size fits all.

When choosing what to eat more or less of, think about what it is you want to achieve. For most people its red...
