Tell us a little about yourself:

I love to travel, fitness is my passion and my life and I love the outdoors. So Dubai is a perfect location for me. I can work outside most months of the year. I also love to socialise and Dubai is a fantastic hub for that.

When did you move to Dubai and what brought you here:
I moved to Dubai in June 2012 to work as a personal trainer for Jumeirah Beach Hotel. I had the most spectacular views from my ”office” and my day to day job was everything that I love. Fitness, fun and playing around to create new and imaginative exercises. However, I realised that as much as I love going to the gym, I just didn’t want to work in one all day every day. I preferred training clients outside where I could challenge them in ways they didn’t expect. Plus let’s face it, for 8 months of the year the weather outside is fantastic for outdoor training. So I established a personal training company (Born 2 Perform) with my business partner, Katherine. We provide 1 on 1, partnered and small group personal training, Pilates and boot camp classes, as well as more specialised training programming for those with sport specific requirements and those with injuries.
