A little bit about me … I graduated in 2012 with a Sport Science degree and have made my career an area of important investment for me ever since. I am continuously learning more about the sport and fitness sector gaining valuable qualifications, training and experience. My diverse experience, skill set and passions were key to getting my business started and how we are growing from strength to strength!

My experiences …. Working in various settings including professional / semi-profession football and rugby clubs, national disability charities, commercial gyms and private personal training clinics, I observed that there were often barriers for participation and specialist coaching.

Along with Personal Training I am very heavily involved in raising the profile for disability sport, working with my non-for-profit social enterprise Performance For All North West and as a volunteer for Special Olympics Great Britain as the Manchester Motor Activities Training Programme (MATP) Lead. I have worked previously as a Fitness Coach for Manchester United’s Deaf Team and have trained Special Olympian and 3 time Gold Medallist Kiera Byland on her journey to the LA World Games in 2015.

How did Fierce Fit come about? … We believe that the fitness industry is very male dominant. This can lead to women feeling uncomfortable to enter it! Observing this we wanted to create a private fitness experience where we assist women on a journey to becoming more confident, happy and providing them the tools to embrace life!

Why is Fierce Fit different? … Fierce Fit is the first business of it’s kind in the heart of Manchester and launched at the start of April. We are a female focused personal training clinic, for females led by females. Fierce Fit is established to improve women’s lifestyle and personal goals. I believe that the industry is currently saturated with quick fix transformations that for some can be very anxiety provoking and cause women to compare themselves and their results with others rather than focusing on their own journey to success and happiness. We empower women to be a part of their own journey through a holistic approach with the primary focus on improved confidence.

I graduated from University of central Lancashire with a social worker based degree, (Care, Community and Citizenship). I knew I wanted to help people but was unsure of which path to take, I found myself lost, I finished university and still not a clue what to do. During my time at university I no longer found time for physical activity, my love for food grew and my weight slowly crept up. I knew something had to change as I felt friends were moving on around me and I was stationary. This was the kickstart I needed to go on my fitness journey which has seen me shed over eight stone in weight, complete my first marathon in Geneva raising money for UNICEF, qualify as an Advanced Personal Trainer and Nutritional Advisor.
