From a young age I have always been active in sports and exercise and as I grew up I became interested in how the body works. I was always a competitive athlete so wanted to be involved with all sports and activities I could find. As I got older I found that my strength came in football, because of this I dropped sports such as cross country and gymnastics to put my full focus into football pushing myself to play semi professional before I injured my ligaments whilst playing. At this time I was attending University College Birmingham in which I graduated from and during my time at uni I was regularly seeing clients for treatments and completed a on year placement as a physiotherapist with a football team based in the midlands. I also took a massage course and the end of graduation to help specialise the art of massage. After this I decided to do a masters in sports and exercise science to push myself and widen my options and knowledge of how the body works and how to look after the body the best way. I graduated from the masters with a postgraduate diploma and immediately started looking for work whilst I began to treat clients that may come to me with aches and pains from playing sports. Over the years I have learnt how to work with different ages and sizes. I have worked in retail and learnt how to provide good customer service so being able to listen to people’s needs and advise my own comes naturally as I’m always aiming to put a smile on the customer or clients faces at the end of the day. So when I came across Chilli Pilates I didn’t think twice about applying as I was drawn to the benefits and experience that it had to offer.
