I am lucky to be able to follow my passions.
Nutrition and fitness
Its the food
From a very early age, I have always been into fitness and nutrition. Taking part in football, track and field, swimming, and weight training. I think I bought my first nutrition book when I was 15. It was only natural that I would end up in the fitness and nutrition industry.
Now as a certified PT and nutritionist, I am lucky to be able to follow my passion and work with people from all walks of life.
Helping them get back to fitness, or find it for the first time, help them to eat healthily and make the right food choices, drop weight and gain muscle.
We have the availability of food now, like never before. Food is transported from all corners of the globe to our supermarket shelves, in all shapes colours and sizes.
We have food manufactures creating meals and drinks to meet every palate. But even though we have all of this we are, as a nation, getting heavier and less fit by the day.
As a nutritionist, it is my job to help you navigate through the minefield of information that is out there.
Help you design a micro nutrient-dense and macronutrient appropriate diet, and to guide you in the implementation of this diet into your lifestyle.
So it becomes part of your everyday life.
Diet is often the missing ingredient
I hear of people all the time not reaching their goals, working hard in the gym or pounding the pavements and parks. If they put as much effort into the diet as they do in exercise, it would make it so much easier for them.

Got a question? I'm here to help.
What can a Personal Trainer do for me?
If you have ever wanted to be slimmer, have more energy or enhance your physical performance, then a Personal Trainer may be for you. In addition to delivering an effective exercise programme and motivating you, a PT will also look at lifestyle issues and nutrition that contribute to making your exercise programme even more effective.
Do I need to be fit to start Personal Training or Online Coaching?
No! That’s the great thing. Using a Personal Trainer is a highly effective way to get fit in the first place. Each person is unique so have their own personal challenges to conquer. Whether it’s losing or gaining weight, weight training for the first time, unsure of what to eat, or any other fitness-related questions.
Does a Personal Trainer ask questions about your lifestyle?
Am I too old for this?
You are never too old to get moving! I have trained clients from 16 years to 87 years old. As we get older, there are changes in our bodies which mean an exercise programme needs to be adapted accordingly.
Does a Personal Trainer require a doctor's certificate
If you are under a doctor's supervision for any health condition, I will ask for clearance exercise from your doctor. Also, if the doctor has any recommended exercises and/or limitations to your exercises program. Other than that, if you are healthy, you can start straight away. The program will be design to fit your current fitness level and goals.
What is your cancellation policy?
If you wish to cancel or reschedule a session, I ask for at least 24 hours notice. A session can be cancelled or rescheduled, however cancellations / rescheduling with less than 24 hours notice will incur the full session fee. This is a standard fitness industry cancellation policy.
Is online coaching right for me?
Online coaching is fast becoming a vital tool in helping clients to reach their goals. Anyone who needs help in controlling diet and nutrition can benefit from online coaching as they have access to their nutrition coach with any questions they need answering, and as the coach knows your personal details they can tailor the answers to your specific needs. The support that you get can be invaluable in reaching your fitness goals, especially when you are struggling to keep up an exercise regime.
