I haven't always been a Pilates Teacher and Nutrition Adviser. I actually spent the first 20 years of my working life in the corporate world in Human Resources. I enjoyed it but found that over a period of time, my corporate career started to affect my health and well-being. I was becoming exhausted by the long commute and long hours without regular breaks. I started thinking that there must be more to life than spending every day in an office.
I also noticed that once I hit 35, my weight started gradually going up year after year, but I couldn't understand why as I thought I was eating healthily and was exercising once a week.
I often thought about what I would do instead of my HR job if the opportunity arose. Over the years, I had developed an interest in health and well-being and felt slightly envious of friends who were doing this type of work, so I decided it would be linked to this.
In 2011, when my health started to be affected by work, I decided that I wanted to get fitter and healthier and help other people to do the same. So, I gave up my corporate career and followed my dream by retraining as a Nutritionist and Pilates Teacher. And created Nutripilates!
I haven't looked back. I love my new life and feel 100 x better. I love inspiring other people to follow their dreams and am passionate about helping you to feel great too!
I'm just a normal person who came to Pilates late in life (not an ex-dancer, like lots of teachers).
I have struggled with my weight and still do due to years of stress on my adrenal system whilst in the corporate world. As a result I hold onto weight around my middle despite doing lots of exercise and healthy eating, so am working on rebalancing my hormones to resolve this.
I have a Personal Trainer, who I see 2-3 times a week to help me with my fitness as well as doing Pilates. Here's me doing my first ever 5k run after 7 weeks training with my Personal Trainer!
I found that Pilates gave me an outlet for a less stressful life and I'm able to help other people feel better and change their lives.
If you would like to chat to me about Pilates or nutrition, please get in touch.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I trained in Pilates and Nutrition with Future Fit. I completed the Complete Mat Pilates Diploma achieving REPS level 3 status. I have also completed ante-natal and post-natal Pilates training with Body Control.
In July 2012, I won an award from Nigel Botterill's Entrepreneur's Circle for everything I've done to set myself up as an Entrepreneur.
Here I am receiving my award!
