SPECIAL WORK CHALLENGES: Trying to make people see that the gym isn’t that big and scary but how it can be a fun place to be. Also there’s no point in doing a workout in which you don’t enjoy, if you enjoy it you give it 100%.

FUTURE PLANS: To learn more about the fitness industry as it is forever changing, you can never know enough! Branch out my knowledge to more cardio based exercises rather than strength and conditioning.

BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA: Since I joined the team I was made very welcome and comfortable from the start. People are more than happy to help each other.
