With an implanted drive to succeed and a growing thirst to learn, my love for fitness began from a young age. Conversely, after completing higher education, my interest for computers was also strongly maturing, leading me to study about it at university.
Having graduated in Computer Science at Brunel University, I followed the natural path and pursued it as a career. Began my career working for the NHS in West London but before too long, I decided to move back to the sunny South Coast. I moved back at the start of summer and continued working in the same domain but for a smaller firm, one with some very promising career prospects. It all happened very fast. Which is why I started to have second thoughts about whether I was passionate enough or doing it for the social prestige and financial security. I spent two further years in the industry and while working in an office environment, I just knew something didn’t feel quite right, I had a constant ache to be active.
In 2015 whilst still working in IT, I decided to sign up for my first ever competition – the British Natural Bodybuilding Federation (BNBF) – drug free & tested. Hard work, discipline and consistency helped me place 1st. This accomplishment supported all of my friends and family’s argument that I should be going down this route and take up personal training as a career. I began studying in my spare time and consequently passed the relevant exams to allow me to work in a fitness facility. From there on I attained more and more qualifications and my expertise continued to flourish. I am currently a Master Personal Trainer for David Lloyd in Poole. This enables me to coach others so they can achieve their goals more efficiently.
From a personal development perspective, the opportunities were far more advanced within the fitness field. The pay cut didn’t come into the decision. I wanted to feel fulfilled by what I do and I figured if I were ever going to transition from one career to another, this was going to be the best time to do it.
I am truly fortunate to do what I love. I welcome the opportunity to learn more and constantly look forward to the next challenge.
The emblem stems from my personal signature – more specifically, the “C” within. I have been signing myself that way for as long as I can remember. And rather than coming up with a random idea for the logo, I wanted to maintain the branding and build on top of what already exists.
My signature is nothing fancy but to be able to build a great brand, a tidy logo is usually a good start. In order to convey beauty, balance and harmony within my mark, The Golden Ratio has come into play.
