Growing up, I’d always been into sports. Swimming, gymnastics, figure skating, Taekwondo; you name it. Anything and everything I could persuade my mom to let me do, I did it. I’ve always loved being active, still, do and always will.
Eventually, I outgrew my childhood hobbies, life got busier, and at 18 I had my son. Shortly after I had him, I started studying for a degree in Business and Marketing. I was determined to make things work. I put my head down, worked flat out and put in 100%. Before long, I had a 1st class Honors, followed by a great job in the corporate world of technology. It was at this point I started training at my local gym to give myself a bit of me time amongst everything else. It was just what I needed to strike a balance. It was a couple of times a week, to begin with, then three or four times a week, then five or six until eventually, I was hooked.
