Up until secondary school I wasn’t really into sport or fitness, I was more focused on my studies and computer games. This inactive lifestyle led me to become overweight. When I reached secondary school my tutor persuaded me to get involved in the rugby team where I found my achilles heel. My enjoyment for the game inspired me to improve my fitness so that I could perform better. I started my own fitness journey, educating myself on how to become stronger, fitter and a better athlete. At 15 I played district level rugby, represented the county and was also selected to play for the south west of England. I then got chosen to become part of the Gloucester rugby academy to better my skills. Unfortunately, my rugby didn’t lead to a professional career but my passion for fitness and training continued. This inspired me to pursue a career in sports science.
