We grabbed five minutes with her to find out what makes her tick…
Q: What is your Power song?
A: For running alone with my ipod, my guilty pleasure is the Rocky theme tune. For Dance Aerobics I love the modern remixes of old songs like “Billie Jean” . I definitely rely on music for motivation!
Q: What is your personal best?
A: Speaking as an instructor and personal trainer, I would say I’ve done my best when I get someone with no faith in themselves to achieve something – from doing a press-up properly to performing a choreographed routine! I love the look on their face when I say “you did it”.
Q: What is your favourite yoga pose?
A: I love Warrior II. The whole body is being used - it opens up and uses all the space around it as your arms and legs extend and lengthen.
Q: What is your next big challenge?
A: I am very honoured to have just been asked to be the resident Fitness Expert on a TV show, which is a great and very exciting challenge for me!
Q: How do you stay motivated?
A: Exercise makes me happy – physically, emotionally, psychologically and even spiritually. I never lose this faith or this belief, even on the days when I’m tired, fed up, or not feeling 100%
Q: What is your favourite sport related quote?
A:“If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it.” , Mohammed Ali
Q: What is your favourite thing about Muswell Hill?
A: Having lived in Muswell Hill for over 10 years I find it to be a lovely friendly community and have made some amazing friends here. Muswell Hill Broadway is a buzzing place with a great mix of shops, restaurants and clothes shops. It’s just the right size and has everything you could need! Plus the views on a clear day are amazing – you can see the Dome, Canary Wharf and the Shard!
