My love of “fitness” started from a young age. At age 5, I was introduced to ballet by my parents who strongly believed that it was important to move gracefully and be strong. I ( according to Miss Kiriakopoulos) was good, a natural mover, and so as I became old enough Miss Kiriakopoulos pushed me to start training semi professionally, meaning 4 hours a day from 10 to 15 years old.
At 15, I moved to the USA and stopped the ballet, which looking back was a shame. But apart from a bit of break for a year or so (when I discovered American boys and fast food) my love of “fitness” was set, and from then on I was always a bit of a fitness class bunny but nothing as passionate as my ballet years.

Fast forwarding, it was only after having my son that fitness again became a very important part of my existence. I suffered from post natal depression and was very quickly prescribed antidepressants. I wanted to feel better so badly that I started along that path, but I wasn’t comfortable, and my husband, although pleased to have a break from the depression, didn’t like the “half awake” person, that I became on Prozac. I chose to change, and to go to the gym and try to self help rather then taking the drugs. I then met Troy my amazing first Personal Trainer. Troy introduced me to High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and to full on 30 minute work out sessions & I loved it ❤️ fast, intense, short. It was exactly what I needed and it made me happy. The harder I worked the more my endorphins kicked in and that became my natural happy pill 👏👏
That was 12 years ago and on my return to the U.K 10 years ago there was only one thing I wanted to do and that was to become a Personal Trainer myself and introduce women to this new, very effective way of training 💪
So Results Fitness and Health was created. 3 studios and an online fitness business later I have now trained and coached around quarter of a million women.
My clients call me their motivational fairy and I accept this nick name proudly 👏👏 .
