I have been involved in Sport and Recreation for over 25 years in various capacities.
Starting as a junior weight lifter at the age of 14; my later career saw me continuing in the sports sector, starting out as a gym instructor in both public and private gyms. I went on to manage several of Bristol’s Sports Centres and Swimming pools as an area manager.
A career change, later in life, meant a move to London where I found myself office bound in a senior management position specialising in IT within the Banking sector.
I moved back to Bristol in 2007 and retrained to be a sports massage therapist. 
Having been in a position of being a sportsman as well as a senior manager, in very different working environments, I very much understands that the body not only has to deal with the punishment and stress from physical activity, but also that of daily life.
