I spent most of my teens/twenties avoiding exercise and healthy habits! I lived a sedentary life, from desk job to bar stools, until I reached a point where I knew I had to find ways to feel better about myself. I first discovered spin in 2012 whilst living in Melbourne. I was extremely unfit, so I was warned that I would hate my first class. Despite a hella 45 minutes of sweaty struggle, I LOVED IT; the loud music, the low lit studio where I could leave my insecurities at the door, the high energy instructor and the unbeatable endorphin buzz afterwards. A little seed had been planted.
I quit the corporate world in 2016 to travel to New Zealand, which further invigorated my love for being physically active. I spent a year working at an animal rescue sanctuary, moving and being outdoors for most of the day and hiking on my weekends off. We didn’t have a TV, so I would spend evenings creating spin playlists that I imagined playing in my own class one day! I continued to make lifestyle changes to help me feel better about myself from the inside out. When I returned to the UK in 2018, I took a leap of faith and signed up to complete my Spin Instructor training and found my Fitlife family a couple of months later!
Spin! Spin gives me absolute joy, an atmosphere of growth to challenge myself, empowerment as I have learned how to raise my mood through moving my body and a dark room where I can hit pause on everything else and just focus on showing up for myself.
I am on a mission to convert any sceptic to a spin lover!
I love the leg press! I’m not confident at lifting heavy free weights, but I can go heavy on the leg press and feel like a BOSS.
Press ups! Vom.
