I have always been sporty and driven, but in 2014 I fell unwell with a whole array of health problems, later being diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Ethlers-danlos Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Disorder, chronic fatigue and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. I have struggled with my health ever since and am on a large amount of medication but the biggest thing I have found that has helped me is exercise. Not only does it help me physically improve my symptoms but mentally it is a big release for me. It also helps create normality as it can be so easy to separate yourself from normal daily activities when you have chronic health conditions.
There are so many health benefits to exercise but the type and amount of exercise to suit your individual needs is what I am here to help with. Everyone is different and finding what works for you is crucial.
Exercise has helped me really learn to listen to my body and give it what it needs. In learning how to manipulate my body in the gym, I have gained far more control and understanding of it in day to day living as well. It also helps give me more control over my body, especially on days where I feel like I have none. That’s the thing with chronic conditions, they are incredibly unpredictable and this can make simple tasks, such as going to the shop, extremely stressful.
I have worked in the fitness industry since 2017 and have been part of it for as long as I can remember. I love what I do and I love training people, in person or online, illness or no illness – with the main goal being improving happiness and quality of life, whether this is through improving health, body composition or anything else. If this sounds like it could help you, contact me for more information or enquire now for online coaching or personal training.
I have first hand experience with living with a chronic illness, along with my qualifications, which makes me more understanding of the day to day struggles that we face. I want to help support you and go through these day to day struggles together, making them seem easier as time goes on.
