I got into fitness at a young age, loving physics education at school from early. I played every sport you could think of including netball, football, swimming, and cross country. Then, I came across Kickboxing at the age of 11. From then onwards, I didn’t look back. I kickboxed my way to the top. I won 3 English titles, 3 British titles and the European title, representing GB in Spain, Serbia and France. After my success in Kickboxing, my dream was to go to the Olympics. Realizing that Kickboxing wasn’t an Olympic sport, I thought I’d try boxing and see how far I got within the sport. My first year on the Army Boxing Team, I won the Elite English National Title and the GB Elite Three Nations Title. Winning the same title Nicola Adams (Olympic Gold Medalist) did when she was an amateur. After that, the Olympic dream started to become more realistic than I thought.
