We will be introducing a range of different experts from WIFE throughout WI Sports Week so make sure you check back in regularly to hear more….
What do you?
I am a nurse and Personal Trainer, specialising in working with older ladies and those people on their cancer journey. I work not only in my gyms but also in a local residential home and with a local cancer charity.
How did you get involved?
I wanted to find my own Personal Trainer who would understand me, I am not in my 20s so wanted a more mature PT. I couldn’t find one, so I decided that I would retrain to be a PT and be able to offer this service.
Why is sport and exercise important to you?
The benefits of exercise have been well documented but I am constantly delighted to see the change in people as we work together. Not only do they become healthier, they start to feel far more confident about themselves.
How can more women get involved?
Exercise isn’t all about going to the gym, plenty of other options exist. It’s about being more active – whether it’s walking, swimming or even doing the housework! The same thing does not work for everyone; find something that motivates you to keep active.
