About me

I’m married with 3 kids and have been into training and nutrition for over 35 years. I was a National Level bodybuilder in my teens and early 20s. I then played/competed in many sports – rugby, basketball, boxing, kickboxing, and recently competed in CrossFit, but the mainstay throughout has always been the gym and working out.

I have helped people lose weight and get in shape all of my life but only in early 2023 did I turn my passion into a business and launched my own company – Fuel.Nutrition Coaching. The business has gone from strength to strength, and I love every minute of it.

I also work as a Sports Nutrition Advisor for Efectiv Nutrition, a brand I have used for years, and I believe in their products and the ethos of the company.

I’m a qualified nutrition coach, level 3 personal trainer and CrossFit level 1 coach.

How I got into coaching

I’ve done ‘coaching’ since the days when a qualification wasn’t needed (that makes me feel old) so kind of approached it backward to most coaches. I had years of experience before I took all the necessary qualifications, but you never stop learning and I’m always looking to increase my knowledge. I don’t want it to sound cheesy, but I genuinely love helping people smash their fitness and weight loss/muscle gain goals!!

My coaching style

I used to be really hard on people years ago,  it’s the way we all trained back then. I’m probably the complete opposite now and really try to have empathy and understand the individual so I can get the best out of them. Some people love a stern word, others need an arm around the shoulder – a good coach knows which is which.
