The majority of my career has been in high level sales roles however I've also worked as a personal trainer, and am a qualified chef with a clear passion for health, fitness, food and nutrition. I am sponsored by the Nutrition Warehouse, and train most days, and I love to help others on their journeys towards becoming healthier and happier through sport and fitness.
I have just recently launched a fitness app, Fit Meet, which connects people based on their sport and location to find training partners. I want to help motivate and make it easier for people to get fit, and by linking people up with similar goals to train together it will help keep them accountable, and also make fitness more fun and more social. It is the first global app of its kind on both iOS and android platforms and is available as a free download. Fit Meet covers all sports, all locations, all fitness levels and all ages 17+
I am passionate about promoting evidence based information and the benefits of living a healthy balanced lifestyle, and wish to share my knowledge and experience in order to help others.
