My values

I believe in the power of exercise as medicine. If undertaken well exercise is a miracle pill, and is the most under-rated preventative measure or management for a lot of health conditions.

Personal interests

In my spare time I enjoy outdoor adventurous activities such as hiking, climbing and mountain biking.

I love the fact that at Westbank exercise is for everybody, regardless of physical ability or social status. Someone that has never used a gym before can come here and feel comfortable and welcomed, and find they actually love it!
