About JAW Fitness
Growing up I was always the “bigger kid” as my mum called it “puppy fat” but that puppy fat never seemed to disappear. Which was quite surprising because I was always so active since such a young age.
I used to love playing football, hanging round with the lads, I was a typical ‘Tom Boy’ but as I got to the age of 15, discovered my hair looked nice down and eyelashes looked better with a bit of mascara on, I threw my Lacoste tracksuits in the bin and started to wear jeans.
My activity levels were pretty much zero and I ate anything I wanted with no restrictions. Before I knew it I was 19 years old, overweight, self conscious, depressed, uncomfortable and sad, I was angry at everybody else but myself!
It wasn’t anybody else’s fault, it was my own.

But HEY, I’m a firm believer in “Everything happens for a reason” That was the moment I realised I had gone too far and it was time to make a change, for myself. And I did! The following week was the start of “The New Me”, my Fitness Journey began along with a whole new lifestyle.
I found my love for training, the buzz I had was unexplainable when I started seeing results, I became mentally stronger as well as physically, the weight dropped off at first but then I started to plateau and I soon realised that was the easiest part. The hardest part is keeping it off.
So 5 years later I had become very repetitive in my ways, my body was almost in Robot Mode, I was doing the same things, day in, day out, eating the same things day in, day out.
I realised here that there is no end to this fitness journey, you always want more.
So I got myself a personal trainer, Adam. I have never looked back since. I found a whole new love for training again, I was intrigued, always learning, always wanting more.
At this point I was in a 9-5 job which I enjoyed but I didn’t Love. I didn’t ever hate going to work, I just knew it wasn’t something i wanted to do for the rest of my life.
A couple of years later, Adam asked me if i had ever thought of becoming a personal trainer? Obviously I had, it felt although it would be my dream job. Who wouldn’t want to wear gym clothes every single day, doing something they love, supporting others? But I was now at a completely different stage in my life, I had a partner, we had a house, a mortgage, I had responsibilities, I couldn’t just leave my 9-5 job with no source of income.
I was stuck in a rut so now the job I liked soon became the job I disliked because all I could think about was wanting to be a personal trainer so after speaking with my partner I researched into coursesIi could do part-time to give me a Level 3 Personal Training Qualification, eventually I found one suitable. That just meant I was working full time and completing a part time PT course but it was worth it. After long gruelling 12 months which seemed a lifetime, I finally qualified in April 2018.
The long gruelling hours didn’t stop there though, I was then personal training part time to build up a clientele. It was finally in October 2018 that I took the plunge and I did it. I took a huge leap into the deep end, I quit my full time 9-5 job and I became a full time personal trainer. I now work in the UNIT, with Adam
