Member and Running Coach at Family Fitness Centre Leadership In Running Fitness (LIRF)
I have been training with the Family Fitness Centre for approximately 6 years, since my eldest son started Kickboxing with the Academy. Both of my sons now train with Fighting Fit Academy and compete in competitions all over the country.
I recently qualified as a Leader in running Fitness and assist in coaching the Running group mid week and also hold my own Running Group with the Academy on Saturday mornings.
I’ve always enjoyed running and keeping fit but after my youngest son was born, a back operation halted my fitness completely for 2+ years and I was told I would never be able to run again.
My progression back to fitness was slow but with the patience and dedication from the Family Fitness Centre, my core strength has improved, I have lost weight, toned up and am fitter now than I have ever been. I started running again, entering races and completed my first Half Marathon in June 2018.
I attend 4+ classes a week including circuits, boxing fitness and running club.
I also take an active part in the running of the Academy, organising events, assisting in the running of holiday clubs and administration.
