I am an weightlifter and weightlifting coach, passionate about all things training. I emphasise technical proficiency and physical robustness, allowing every athlete to find their own best way.
Evidence-based practice is extremely important to me. I keep up with scientific literature in various fields, sharpening my skills so I can deliver a client centred, evidence-based approach. As a neurodivergent person (ADHD), I place great importance on inclusivity and creating a safe space for everyone to train in.
My goal is to bring out the best in people, to help them find a spark and joy, using my soft skills and movement knowledge to overcome barriers. This shows up in all my work in diverse ways. Working with neurological disorders, this involves finding solutions to participate more fully in life- through strengthening and maintaining muscle to offset long term repercussions of disorder, to developing solutions and patterns to achieve goals. Similarly working with elderly and disabled, I also use a goal led approach to support them to manage and improve condition/frailty, developing individuals' resiliency and expanding movement options allowing for robust engagement in life, both mentally and physically
