Additionally to my role at The Headland I am the Sports Scientist in an Elite Surfing Academy. We train and coach six of the UK’s best young Surfer’s. To keep them at the top of their game I take control of the fitness and conditioning as well as nutrition and hydration.
Further work experience includes training and nutritional work with:
- Professional athletes in a variety of Sports (Including one recovering from major Surgery)
- Clients focusing on health and wellbeing, weight loss , gain and control.
- Clients coping with food intolerances, allergies, IBS and various other conditions.
When studying for my B.Sc. (Hons) Sports Performance & Coaching and HND Sports Science, I focused my studies on physiology and nutrition. My teaching experience lies with a variety of Sports but is primarily swimming and surfing. I have competed in surfing, mixed martial arts and strength and fitness training.
My Personal Experience
My own struggles with nutrition motivated me to research and study in my own time. Suffering with food intolerances growing up, I had to deal with extreme and varied symptoms. Trying doctors, NHS, private health care and alternative options; I learnt the only way to resolve my problem was through trial and error with my diet. Keeping records of everything I ate, drank and felt for five years, finally resulted in me narrowing down my intolerance to the exact amino acid.
Since gaining my full health, my life has been sensationally different! My main ambition at The Headland is to offer a service that helps people achieve their full health through nutritional changes and a healthy lifestyle.
My Personal Experience:
I wanted to get my career back on track after I had my daughter and wanted to do something I was passionate about, so decided to go back to college. I studied a CYQ Level 2 Course for Fitness Instructing. I found this new career path both exciting and stressful, but well worth it. My passion for fitness grew after I lost two stone on a well-known healthy eating programme. I feel I am now able to help others reach their goals and I love to see the improvements they have made.
In addition I am currently a Sports Massage Therapist here at The Headland.

My personal experience:
Having spent three years working within the health and fitness industry has greatly progressed my knowledge and experience in the area to help provide the finest and most effective service possible. Having done exercise programming for individuals with goals such as muscle building, fat burning, weight loss, general fitness, muscular rehabilitation and sports specific training, my knowledge and experience has become very broad and professional.
One key interests I have is the different training methods, the science behind them and how they each can help us to achieve our goals. This helps me apply this to training and also take out different elements for my own use!
I am excited to be working with The Headland and my aim is to find ways to continuously improve what we offer to our members to help them get the most out of their training! I hope to be running group fitness classes at The Headland offering a friendly but challenging class for all fitness levels.
