I have always been passionate about fitness, and started my coaching career whilst still living in Singapore in 2010. We moved away and although fitness was always a way of life, it was when I joined Lift Off in 2015 that I rediscovered my love for this way of staying active. The combination of strength, conditioning and focus on technique is super effective and I love the fact I have never been stronger and fitter. The amazing community feel is something I have never experienced elsewhere, and I was quickly hooked. I had been a vet for 11 years, a mum for nearly 4, and really felt that I wanted to focus on helping others experience the positive changes I have enjoyed. I really want to be a good role model for my daughter and other children as a fit, strong and healthy woman. I believe if you make fitness fun you can help them build foundations for a lifetime of health, building confidence and reducing injuries at the same time.

With this in mind, I started Lift Off Academy in September 2017, providing strength and conditioning classes for children aged between 4 and 18. I ensure the classes are fun, as well as maintaining discipline. I want the children to grow, gain confidence and gain skills they will have for life, without discriminating. We also discuss nutrition, sleep and school. With the older children, we discuss the class structure as it is important for them to understand the ‘why’ and not just follow my lead. I have seen these children make huge progress, and I so proud of each and every one of them. It is also great to see some of our Lift Off adult members then train with their children, making fitness a part of their family routine.
I am always learning more, and always striving to bring the best to your children.
