Q&As

How important is your nutrition to you and why?
I am a big believer in the quote “you are what you eat” meaning that whatever we eat manifests outside of our body, this could include performance, daily energy, body shape etc. As an athlete and fitness professional, it is my job to apply what I preach, meaning that I have to do my best to be a physical embodiment of a healthy lifestyle and encourage change in others to embrace a healthier lifestyle, the first and biggest step is nutrition.
What's your favourite way to keep fit?
I have always been a huge fan of weight training combined with HIIT Training (High Intensity Interval Training), athletics has allowed me to apply both of these disciplines of training and stay fit all year round.
Greatest achievement so far?
Achieving a new personal best in the 200 meters 23.63 seconds, this event has always been my hardest event.
