I also have qualifications in a wide variety of courses, including: Personal Training, Step Basic, Choreography, Body Sculpt, Spinning, Suspension Training, Pilates, Kettlebells, Full swim teachers and Life Saving Certificates. 

Research

At the beginning of my professional career I had a strong interest in Sport Psychology and completed a Masters by research in the area with specialist interest in the area of competitive anxiety and it's relationship with the production of muscular force in competition. My findings were published at FEPSAC European Federation of Sport Psychology 2007 (Halkidki, Greece). My interests have evolved since then and now my focus is solely on Group Fitness Instruction.
