I’m a level 4 Personal Trainer and I specialize in working with individuals with both type 1 and type 2 Diabetes. I’m type 1 myself and after experiencing the massive benefits that both strength training and CV exercise can have on blood sugar control I decided to become a PT to be able to help others. I now run my own PT business called Sweet Fitness alongside my full time job as Head of Training for a travel company.
I have also recently competed in the Miami Pro Bodybuilding and Fitness Modeling World finals to show that Diabetes doesn’t have to stop you doing anything you set your mind to!
How do you inspire others?
I like to think I inspire others by staying positive and determined and always taking on new challenges.
How has diabetes contributed to forming you into the person you are today? Mentally, physically, or emotionally?
Diabetes has definitely helped me to put things in perspective. I don’t take my health for granted and I make the most of every opportunity.
Would you rather fight one horse sized duck or 100 regular sized ducks?
Ha ha ha I think one horse sized duck!
