I was delighted this month to find out that I have won an award for Best Holistic Exercise Facilitator in Somerset in the GHP Fitness and Nutrition Awards 2020.
Winning an award is not just a personal achievement. It’s an award I share with my clients who turn up to their sessions, work hard to achieve their goals while making my job an absolute pleasure.
I’ve been a fitness educator for over ten years now and the journey has rewarding in many ways. I’ve worked in a variety of cities, towns and environments that have allowed my knowledge and expertise to constantly expand through study as well as working with a vast number of people from all different walks of life. It has been a journey where I have been able to constantly increase my skill base and experience.
I have am now at a point in my career where I am fully awakened to the fact that health and wellness is an interconnected system. Your living and work environment, social circles and family set up, right down to your relationships and mental health all play a part in determining your overall current state of health and feeling of well-being . It’s in realising this that together with my clients I have been able to help them develop goals that encompass all areas of life and ones that have allowed to make the necessary changes with the least disturbance. Changes that although often small have produced increased speed of progress in helping them to achieve goals that they never though they could.
During this year’s lockdown I completed a foundation course in herbalism as well as a Permaculture Design Certificate which has again added a new angle to my style of teaching as well as an open door to the new possibilities of enhancing sports nutrition with home grown fruit, veg and herbs. Now as I begin the final year of my part time MSc in Global Sustainability Solutions my hope is that I can use my new found knowledge to increase my positive impact in society. Through supporting members of my community I aim to continue making a positive impact whenever and where ever I possibly can.
