Tell us about your journey to fitness? Where did it all start?

I was a late starter into fitness…. I started running when I was 30yrs old! I did aerobic classes in my 20s but that was 1 hour of exercise, 2 hours in the pub! My journey really started when I was running on a treadmill in the gym and the gym manager said 'I'm fed up with you on the treadmill, will you run outside?' And that was it, I was totally bitten by the running bug. From there I ran for the finance company I was working for, went from 5k to 10k to half marathon and then of course a full marathon (well several actually!)

If you're interested in starting your own fitness journey, Sundried's Activewear is suitable for people of all abilities. 

What are your training goals now?

For 2023 I'm planning to take part in cycle sportives in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. I have a bigger plan to do Lands End to John Groats. Watch this space.

Tell us one unusual fact we wouldn't know about you:

I've been lifting weights for half my life!

What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?

I wish I'd known how much someones mindset affects their training.

Do you follow a specific nutrition plan? If so, what/when do you eat?

I'm a vegan and follow a plant based diet. I stick to 3 meals a day and believe food first. I do supplement with vitamin B12 and between October and March take vitamin D.

What do you do to keep your clients motivated? Do you have any top tips to keep motivated?

I motivate my clients though encouragement, I remind them of their progress, and I share inspirational stories.

My top tips for motivation:

  • believe in your body
  • trust your training programme
  • get your mindset right, train your brain to expect to succeed

Talk us through your training regime.

I walk my dogs twice a day, and without exception my training regime will always include 2 strength sessions and 1 cardio session a week. I will build on that depending on the event I'm training for.

How do you keep your fitness knowledge up to date?

To keep my fitness knowledge up to date I follow some solid trainers, read research papers, read books, and do my CDP training.

What are your top 3 trainer tips?

  1. follow a training programme/regime that is realistic and sustainable for you to follow
  2. stay focused and visualise success
  3. never ignore an injury

If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Chocolate!

Why work with Sundried?

I love Sundried products. Plus I'm really impressed with the company ethics, the company values have such a solid foundation - who wouldn't want to work with Sundried?

Favourite fitness quote:

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent. 

- Arnold Schwarzenegger.
