I have always been active. I may not have been an elite athlete but I never wanted to say "no" to something because I wasn't fit enough!
Looking to improve my performance in various sports, I became more interested in body movement and fitness. Leading to the start of my formal fitness journey, I qualified as a Fitness Instructor (Level 2) in 2001 and to learn more about movement and what limits how the body functions, I continued my studies, leading to my sports massage qualification in 2006 and then my Advanced Fitness Instructor /Personal Trainer qualification. Over 20 years on, and I continue to study and learn and apply.
MOVEMENT IS MEDICINE. By moving we improve both our physical and our mental wellbeing. Every step we take improves our long term health outcomes and lays the foundation for an active and more fulfilled future - whatever life throws in our way.
My objective with S2FITNESS, is to share my enthusiasm and use my skills and experience to help you be your best - to improve your performance - both now and for the future.
