THE TEAM: QUALIFICATIONS & ACHIEVEMENTS
I have trained all my life and know what a difference it makes to be fit and healthy. It seemed that Personal Training was the only path for me. It’s an opportunity for me to pass over experience and knowledge, and to transfer my crazy amounts of energy by motivating and challenging you.
After competing in the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, my decision was to train and continue for another 4years. Then on my return from competing in the 2004 Olympic Game’s in Athens, I was faced with the big question of ‘what to do’ with my life. I found my choice to be an easy one and to stick with what I know!
So I began my studies and outdoor training and loved it. The great results and feedback from clients inspired and drove me to open up my own training studio. On the 6th October 2005 I achieved my goal and ‘ Fitness Avenue’ opened its doors to the world!
