About

My Fitness Journey

then to now

In school I despised any sort of physical activity – I would forge notes from my mum for EVERY single PE lesson to the point where the teachers just accepted i wasn’t ever gonna participate. I also used to document the poor food choices I used to make all over my instagram *recurring theme of ben and jerrys, milky bar buttons and frijj chocolate milkshakes* (pls don’t scroll down to 2014 lol!) and refuse to eat anything green.

Fast forward to now; 3 and a half years into my fitness journey, and I get genuinely excited about going to the gym every single day – lifting weights has transformed my physical and mental self and has positively impacted my life in ways I can’t even describe! Moreover, nutrition is one of my biggest passions – I am fascinated by the science behind the foods we eat; and my diet is now comprised primarily of nutrient rich, wholesome healthy foods which I LOVE (obvs with the occasional pizza and ice-cream).

The bits

In between

Like most fitness enthusiasts, the transformation that got me to where I am today was a bit of a roller coaster to say the least. I’ve done all the crazy fad diets, I’ve over exercised, done the ‘YoYo gimmicky fitness plans, I’ve gone through periods of under-eating and over exercising, extreme body dysmorphia, I’ve suffered with an eating disorder and experienced (and recovered from) the cycle of binge eating and restriction.

However, these more negative experiences have also been accompanied by an extensive amount of learning, education and personal growth and has led me to where I am today. I’ve tried a plethora of training programmes, protocols and methods to find what actually works, I’ve successfully reverse dieted and improved my metabolism, I overcame my disordered eating and binge eating disorder, I’ve worked with top fitness coaches to improve my physique, I’ve done a bikini ‘prep’, I studied for and completed my L2 and L3 personal training qualifications and now, I help girls all over the world change their body compositions, improve their relationship towards food and exercise and feel empowered to be who they are! 

 

Going on a diet is usually associated with boring, bland and basic food; and also usually considered to be difficult with little to no enjoyment. If this sounds familiar to the diets you’ve been on before, then read on to find out the secret hacks I use to make dieting a piece of cake! First …
Are supplements really necessary? or can you still live a healthy lifestyle and make progress in your fitness journey without them? With the fitness industry becoming significantly overcrowded on social media; full of dishonest marketing and false claims, this has led to huge amounts of uncertainty about what is and what isn’t necessary to reach …
You’ve dieted hard for 12 weeks and spent hours working out for your ‘summer body’. Essentially, the underlying purpose behind your hard work and determination in the kitchen and in the gym was so that you could feel more confident in your bikini and actually enjoy your holiday more. But as your holiday creeps closer, …
