My story is a pretty unique one...
In 2009 I completed my Personal Trainer qualfication looking for a career in the fitness industry.
Unfortunately, with the 2008 recession in full flow, people weren't really looking for Personal Trainers.
My next move was to head to University and study Strength & Conditioning with a view to working with full-time professional athetes on a daily basis.
I managed to hit another stumbling block as I was offered an unpaid internship with an organisation at the time that I just couldn't afford.
With student debt in hand, I was offered a role in Recruitment to help get some money behind me, pay off some student debt and potentially look at another career.
From 2014 until 2016 I moved between a few roles until I really found my calling.
With my knowledge from the fitness world, I was pretty staggered at how many colleagues I was working with who were struggling with their: weight, stress and health.
In early 2016 I had a lightbulb moment where I knew that I could really serve my colleagues and others like them on a grand scale.
It was at this point that I realised the true gulf in size in knowledge and implmentation between every day hardworking folks and the fitness industry.
Since that point, I've worked with thousands of people in the UK and internationally to help bridge that gap.
I believe we live in a time where it's hugely important we give every day people the power to protect their own health.
My long-term vision is to ensure that every Employer within the UK is able to provide their employees with the tools and skills necessary to do this.
We are getting there one step at a time.
