After leaving university, my interest in sport got sidelined as a result of a busy career in accounting. It didn't take long for me to realise that the finance life was not for me. As an outlet, I started working out at Exceed. As my fitness and passion continued to evolve I decided to train for a teaching role at the studio.
I am living my dream now by combining my passions for teaching fitness with building our community of strong, athletic clients. The team and our regular clients are so close – every day I'm reminded of the support from my childhood sports teams, except now the prize isn't a game or tournament but a better life in every aspect.
Power Song: Whatever it is - Zac Brown Band
Personal Best: Winning a memorial 5K race in honour of a friend who passed away in college

Next Big Challenge: Training for the Wineglass Marathon in upstate New York and qualifying for the Boston Marathon
I spent much of my childhood dancing for a semi-professional youth ballet company and went on to study dance at university then perform and tour with contemporary ballet companies. In 2009 I made the full-time transition into the fitness industry, qualifying as a personal trainer. My first role was with Equinox, where I progressed to fitness manager and first learned the art of calisthenics. After a difficult back injury, I turned away from heavy weights and pursued my love for natural movement.
I'm now based at ModelFIT in NYC and run my own fitness brand called Couples Calisthenics. I teach functional training at ModelFIT and specifically teach partner-based calisthenics at Couples Calisthenics. Partner-based training is so inspiring because people really lighten up, put their phones away and focus on being present during their workout.
