Female Boxing Pilates Coach

The gym environment has been a part of my life since I was as young as 10 years old.

From watching my dad train, to training with him. Then eventually I went and studied Fitness. I loved the mental resilience it gave me. The gym taught me that you can always improve, learn and grow. 

As I’ve gotten older, I've taken this mindset into all areas of my life. I believe this mindset sets you up for a beautiful and abundant life.

I hope to share that with everyone who trains with me.


How did you get into training? What disciplines of training has influenced you?

I started boxing from the age of 13. That really started it all off for me. By 15 I was going to classes at Jungle Brothers and the UFC gym with dad. Movement gave me confidence as a kid who wasn't particularly good at sports.

I did boxing 6 times a week when I was 14-15 at legends gym in Kensington. I started weight training when I was 16 and got hooked on how powerful it made me feel. I love feeling strong & being able to challenge myself and my limits. 

More recently I have discovered my love for pilates. The vibe is completely different to the training I am used to, which I love. The combination of boxing, pilates and strength have influenced my training style. 

Why do you train?

I train because I want to be my best self. It helps me feel strong mentally and physically. 

What does your training look like?

I love any kind of training. At the moment, I do strength training 3x a week and then I do 1-2 sessions of pilates and 1 session of boxing per week.

What type of training do you offer as personal trainer?

I offer 1-on-1 and small group boxing, pilates & strength training. I also offer online programming. 

What's been your biggest hurdle within your own training journey?

Finding balance.

What would you say to someone who's just starting their training journey?

Keep it simple. Start with small and achievable steps. Do what you love and never lose the enjoyment of training.

What are you here at Jungle Botany Gym and what do you hope to achieve here?

I want to learn from the very best and I strongly align with the values at Jungle brothers. I hope to empower women to take control of their health and live to their full potential.

What are the main lessons you've learned from you coaching journey so far?

Everybody is different and requires a different kind of coaching. Some people need tough love, others need to be held accountable each day. I aim to coach people in a way which I know works for them.
