I have always worked in the fitness industry starting my career as a fitness consultant back in 1996. Having studied Sport and Exercise Science at Bath University I worked in a number of health clubs in Bath before joining the Centurion when it first opened in June 2000. I became the manager in 2003 and have seen the club change and develop over the years. I love my job and am passionate about my own exercise and strongly believe this helps me motivate my clients to achieve their individual lifestyle goals.
I came to the fitness industry after a personal health scare in 1999 and like most people I reassessed my lifestyle. I joined the centurion in 2000 as a member and took a personal interest in exercise and the fitness industry. In 2005 I decided to change my career to work in the fitness industry and re-trained as a fitness consultant. I joined the Centurion in the summer of 2005 as a part time fitness consultant and in 2008 became the Assistant Health Club Manager. I have a passionate interest in helping others to improve their fitness and lifestyles. I love the gym environment and I believe that exercise should be a fun and enjoyed by all.
I was born in Devon and moved to this area with my family in the early 1970's.
My career at the Centurion started in 1994 as a temporary receptionist. I then transferred to the Fosseway Indoor Bowls Centre but eventually came back to Club Reception.
Having had several careers in the past I came to fitness later in life. I started using gyms in 2002 after being referred to a physiotherapist to rehabilitee an arm injury. Very soon I started to feel the benefits and decided to retail as a fitness consultant in 2003. I joined the Centurion Fitness team in 2004 and really enjoy working here. The social side of the club means that I have many friends who are members and love the family atmosphere of the club. I have seen the club grow and develop and am proud to be part of the team here.
I retrained as a fitness consultant and personal trainer in 2010 and joined the fitness team here at the Centurion in September of the same year. I have always been very active and enjoyed the outdoor life as well as being a regular gym user. Having achieved my own goals and overcoming some personal barriers I feel passionate about wanting to help others achieve theirs. I particularly enjoy meeting and working with all our members. I’m always actively involved with the social aspects of the gym and love my running, boxercise and circuit classes.
The Centurion is where my passion for the fitness industry started, while being a member. After retraining as a personal trainer and working for a while at a health club in Bath I joined the fitness team at the Centurion in April 2013. The Centurion gym has a great community and social feel, not just being a place to exercise but also to come and meet friends. Exercise can play a huge part of your wellbeing both mentally and physically and I love helping people with their own exercise and lifestyle goals.
