Bio: My career in Personal Training began some 23 years ago after my previous work in Human Resources was cut short by a debilitating case of tendinitis or, as per the official denomination, Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS). The only successful means of overcoming the pain and limitation of OOS was by following a guided muscle-building, Pilates and yoga training course with personal trainers. Like so many other office workers, I had serious postural problems despite an active lifestyle, After my doctor insisted that I needed to find a new career, not associated with mousework or sitting at a desk, I qualified as a Personal Trainer, Aqua fitness Instructor and Swimming Instructor. My qualifications are internationally recognised by FISAF, Network Fitness and Austswim. I trained for 6 intensive months at a Pilates Studio in Sydney and took a Pilates for Trainers course. My new career offered me the opportunity to pass on what I had learnt through suffering. Despite my doctor's warning I was able to slowly incorporate more and more work at a desk back into my life, I love writing and researching and editing photos so I had to re-learn a whole new approach to that desk and office chair lifestyle. Slowly my work as a translator, work which I love because it is both creative and exacting, has increased. I now combine my personal training work with freelance translating. My driving philosophy as a trainer is to empower the client with information and with a personalised, structured exercise program for their particular needs. It is wonderful to observe the consistent and gradual changes in clients who train regularly, they overcome imbalances and come away stronger. The final objective of this kind of training is to prepare the client to be their own trainer because, let's be honest, a personal trainer is a luxury that may be necessary for a while but it is financially impossible to maintain forever. I find that information makes people strong mentally and motivates them so explaining theory to my clients has always seemed to me to be really important. I have discovered that although we are all different there are some training and diet guidelines that apply to nearly everyone. I currently live and work in Valencia Spain. Recently, Insights about the lymphatic system opened up a whole new field of fitness for me and I now incorporate some very specific, not to mention enjoyable, exercises into my workday. With my new grip on mind-fullness, lymphatic health and my older hard-won postural balance I feel stronger than I ever have. I am passionate about passing on what I know to friends and clients.
