I want to be able to help people have the energy and confidence to go after everything they dream of, as I did when I started out, and let weight loss happen as a result along the way. I want to be able to help people feel happy and do all the things they want to be able to do but maybe feel uncomfortable about doing just now. I also want to encourage more people to get into running and run better by providing the tools to help them run easier and improve performance while using less energy.

A back problem in 1997 changed my life. I had been lifting carpets in my flat when I felt muscles go into spasm. Signed off work, I decided I needed to make a change as I didn’t want to go through life being affected by it as my Mum had. So I entered the 1998 London Marathon and to my horror/surprise, I got in first time. That would be a great target to get fit.
Crossing the finish line that day changed everything. For the first time, I felt a massive sense of achievement and most of all, I felt that if I could do it anyone could. I managed to run it again in 1999 by which time I realised that I wanted to be able to inspire others to go and achieve amazing things as I had done so I quit my job as a Pizza Chef and trained to become a Personal Trainer. I worked in a couple of gyms in Perth before realising another dream, I started 2006 with my own business.
I’ve been fortunate to work with a lot of great people, many of whom have taught me as much as I’ve taught them. I love the buzz that comes when people tell me how much better they feel, when they’ve done something hugely meaningful to them or when they’ve run their first 5k/10k/Marathon.
I’ve lived by the ethos of it’s never a case of whether you can or can’t do something, it’s how it will be done.
Anything IS possible, if you can dream it and willing to have a go
