Exercise is something I have enjoyed doing all my life. Today I am a member of City Fitness, where I attend gym 3 - 5 days a week, plus spin class.
My favourite sport to play has always been tennis. At school I could often be found on one of the tennis courts, pretending to be Bjorn Borg, one of the sporting heroes of my generation! I also played a lot of football when I was younger, and even had schoolboy trials for my favourite team Manchester City, where I met my favourite footballer of all time, former England Captain Colin Bell
Martial arts has been part of my life ever since I saw my first Bruce Lee movie. For a while I trained in 3 martial arts, namely Taekwon-Do, Tai Chi and Kendo all in the same week!
As well as motivating you to exercise with mindset tools from Hypnotherapy, NLP and Coaching, I also blend Tai Chi forms with other gentle exercises. I can do this 1-2-1 and for public or private groups and workshops. I have enjoyed training people for over 10 years, using the following skills
Taekwon-Do: I am a Black Belt 1st Dan. For a time I was an Assistant Instructor of Taekwon-Do, helping to run classes for children in schools in Lower Hutt.
Kendo: I reached the rank of 5th Qu before having to stop on medical advice. However, I have still helped others with their own Kendo goals. Please enjoy this video testimonial
I help you find simple exercises that match your abilities and goals, which are not a strain on your time, and can also be fun!
I am currently studying for the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certificate in Personal Training, which is taught through City Fitness Gyms. My goal is to become a REPS (Registered Exercise Professional) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT), and so add yet another dimension to the holistic mind and body services I already provide
