After many years experience in customer services and IT service delivery I decided to have a complete career change. I am now self employed and offering a range of fitness solutions, from swim and open water coaching (triathletes and masters) to studio cycling/hydro fitness and sports therapy.
Having many strings to my bow I have successfully completed Marathons, long distance cycle rides, an ironman distance triathlon and several endurance swims including our very own Everest of swimming challenges, the English Channel in 2015 and 2017.
