As I am sports massage qualified I thrive off helping clients who are injured, using sports massage to relieve symptoms then offering specific training to aid recovery. My experience lies in martial arts and strength training, offering the only H.I.T facility in the North of England. Here we offer brief but intense workouts that no other trainers can offer.

I began training in the summer of 2015. As I experimented with my nutrition and training I soon began noticing small changes. I started getting stronger, more muscular and fitter. This was an amazing feeling and I realised that if I can change my body in such a positive way then I can help others do the same. So I started various courses to improve my knowledge. This became a passion for me and led me to apply for a position at Axis Fitness.

While at Axis I have gained my level 3 Advanced PT, GP Referral and Level 3 & 4 massage, to name a few. During these courses I have learnt about various training methods and the effects they have on the body, as well as how correct and incorrect nutrition can affect the body. I now apply this knowledge of training methods and nutrition when coaching clients and during my own training. I hope to use my qualifications in sports massage to aid client recovery times and prevent the injury of athletes and the general public, particularly in rugby, as I play this sport at county level. I am always studying and doing research to keep up with the ever-changing fitness industry and to further expand my knowledge.

New to the fitness industry, I have a passion for exercise and hope to help anyone and everyone to the best of my abilities with my qualifications below.

Qualifications:

  • Level 2 in Fitness Instructor / Circuits Instructor
  • Level 3 Personal Trainer / Kettlebell Instructor
  • Level 3 GP Referral Instructor / Fit4Boxing Instructor
  • Level 3 Sports Massage / Studio Cycling Instructor • Level 4 Sports Injury Massage

I have been a qualified gym instructor for the last 6 years and have worked in many gyms across the North East. During this time I have extended my knowledge and gained a wide range of experience in the industry, including instructing classes such as group circuits, boot camps, legs, bums and tums and finally body combat. So if classes are your thing -I could be the guy for you! My interests outside the gym are sports, travelling and going to comedy clubs.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a person make changes to their lifestyle and achieve their goals.

Coming to fitness later in life…over 35. I have experienced first hand the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle, by having lost, regained and lost significant weight for a second time. I understand the journey a person takes to make hard changes to their life, to break the bad habits and form new ones. I can relate to clients who are unhappy and are desperate to make positive changes, having been there and done it all myself.

I am the newest qualified Instructor at Axis Fitness. It seemed a logical path to follow as I have been training at Axis Fitness for the last 10 years and whilst I manage the business in partnership with Steve, it’s great to get out from behind the keyboard and onto the gym floor.
I have a good understanding of nutrition and I am the Queen of meal prep! When they say abs are made in the kitchen, they are not kidding. I love strength training and no, it won’t make you ladies butch and manly – it will define you and give you great shape. I train with experienced Nautilus coaches, who allow me to work on my own goals and strive to be in the best condition I possibly can be.

Axis Fitness gives me the opportunity to meet so many nice members and play a part in helping them achieve their goals. Say Hi to me next time you are in.

I’m a qualified PT specialising in circuit training and boxing and from a young age I’ve always been involved in sport. I first began by attending gymnastics class then danced for over 10 years doing ballet, tap, modern and street dance. I later on became involved in rugby and played for the Morpeth mixed team and was the only girl.
After that I joined the Morpeth girls team in high school and after high school I enrolled in Gateshead stadium college and began my fitness instructor qualification. That is when I began boxing training for Gateshead.
After completing my fitness instructor qualification I completed my level 3 PT sport and exercise diploma.

Instructor

I began my path to becoming a personal trainer around five to six years ago when I realized how passionate I was for health and exercise and how I could implement it in to helping others reach their fitness goals. I started off as a member of Axis Fitness and over time slowly began working as part of the team as I progressed with my education and knowledge around exercise. It very quickly became a passion as I began to train clients and engage on a personal level with people, offering as much support as I could. I now operate out of two gyms and am only hoping to expand and better myself both through work and personally to be the best version of myself.

Qualifications
