Sport and physical fitness have always been a part of my life I am fascinated with the human body, mind and spirit and our staggering ability to adapt and grow – some of us just need more time and encouragement than others.
To teach as many people as possible about the beauty, the wonder and the capabilities of the vessel that they are walking around within; to encourage them to strengthen both mentally and physically and to push past self-imposed boundaries.
I continue to enrich my life and the lives of others through training and participating in events the world over and sharing all that I learn in the process – reign in my competitive spirit and give back by participating in charity events.
