How did you get into the industry?
I studied to be a health and fitness professional because of my fascination in human body movement and my passion for fitness and exercise.

I also love how rewarding it is seeing clients reach their goals and witnessing them achieve life changing results.
What are some tips in helping people stay focused and adhering to an exercises program?
Take baby steps. You would never try to run 10 kms on day one, right? When you do too much too soon, you’ll end up sore, injured, and discouraged.
Take it easy as you get started. Set yourself short term and long term goals… Weekly, monthly and 6 monthly goals and write them down, then continually remind yourself why you started in the first place.
Mix it up. Do different types of workouts to keep things interesting and to exercise different muscle groups. switch between machines and free weights when you strength-train. Try different classes you don’t have to reinvent your entire routine every week, but you do want to shift it around a little.
