“I joined The Gym Group as a member whilst working in hospitality and retail. The facilities gave me the space to train in support of my rugby career and I fell in love with the environment, so much so, I applied for a role with them.

“I joined as a General Manager over 3 years ago and I have qualified in my Level 2 and 3 in my time with the business.

“I found a home away from home in The Gym Group, the team and the members offer a real camaraderie and community feel. Being able to turn my love of fitness into a full time role has been really rewarding alongside my exciting rugby career. Having an understanding of the gym environment and gym etiquette has been a great foundation.

“Being a goal driven individual has also helped as I can understand how and why people set their own goals and I can help them navigate the journey to achieve them.
