|Geology - mountain building||04/01/2017|
I started out hill walking in 2010, although my Grandfather used to take me walking in Wales when I was young. Getting back to the hills was a way for me to improve my fitness and to get outdoors. Since then I have lost over 4 stone in weight and kicked the habit of smoking. I am now a qualified Personal Trainer and Mountain Leader (Summer) and love helping others achieve their own health and fitness goals. Snowdonia is my favourite place for walking at anytime of the year, although I do visit the Peak District and Lake District quite regularly. Scotland is a place I would like to visit more and experience more winter mountaineering. I have recently started indoor climbing and would like to take that outdoors.
I qualified as an ML in May 2016 and have to say that the assessment was a fantastic experience. It was very intense but such a great week of more learnings and being with a great bunch of people. This award means that I can now combine it with my PT level 3 qualification and introduce people to the mountains and improve their fitness. Early 2017 I am taking a level 4 PT qualification in Fitness for People with Disabilities, which will mean that I can provide outdoor activities to this population also.
I love to have fun, experience and learn new things and encourage others to do the same.
I now run Challenge Fit UK providing: Challenge Fitness Training / Nutrition Coaching / Navigation Courses / Mountain Awareness Days / Micro Adventures / Charity Challenges
