I have grown up playing a lot of different sports but football being my main one. Playing for Swindon town from the age of 6 to 16 and then moving on to Forest Green Rovers through to my late teens. After this I have played for a lot of local teams around Swindon and Wiltshire and its given me a lot of opportunities to play around the country , abroad and in various cup competitions.

Being in a sports environment for my whole life has given me discipline , dedication and a competitive attitude and going after what I want to achieve. This has had a huge impact on my life and now helps me when I am in the gym working hard and reaching my goals. It links to lots of different thinks in every aspect of life and I believe this is why playing a sport is very important no matter what level you are at. I now play Darts for Wiltshire after hanging up my playing boots due to various knee operations and this helps me which my mentality in a positive way.

The reason I enjoying working for Iprovefit is because I want to help young people and teach them all the things that I have learnt in life. How to better there personality and to become a better person. Working with young people comes with different barriers and challenges and each young person is different but I want to make a difference to them and help them as much as I can along the way.

To give them as much positive advice and build confidence in telling them that they can achieve what they want in life as long as they work hard and willing to learn when sometimes this is an obstacle from them.

The three words I would use to describe myself are relatable, competitive and a joker!

 My hobbies and interests involve all kind of sports to watch and play such as football , tennis , darts and motorsports. I enjoy working hard in the gym and like to train 5/6 times a week as this is my time to myself to put in the work and feel good about myself. I also have a 13 year old son who I love spending time with , watching him play football on a Sunday morning and watching football together live and on TV. I am a huge Liverpool fan and my son follows in y footsteps. I also enjoy a lot of reality TV and a big fan of love island but will also watch any kind of series on Netflix.
