Everyone is different. We have different needs and metabolisms based on body make up and circumstances. There will be something for everyone on this website and in the blogs. If there is a specific area you would like covered, please ask.


Physical Activity

This is the big ticket item; the big picture. Our body is made to move. We move it in so many different ways. It is irrelevant, in most cases, how we move it; as long as we move and we move every day. Do you play sport? Do you go the gym? Do you walk the dog around the block? Do you work in a physically demanding job? I can help with regular useful insights, hints and tips.

Physical Education

As a child or teenager, or parent of one of these, sometimes it can be difficult to cut through the myriad of information out there about physical activity. It is my aim to keep it simple. It is not rocket science. I can help answer some of the questions constantly asked: How can I start being physically active? What do I need to do to make physical activity part of my everyday life? How much activity should I be doing? What type of physical activity should I be doing? How can physical activity be tailored to suit my specific needs? What should I be looking for in a good, effective coach and sporting organisation? How should I fuel my physical activity needs? And, I am sure that you have some questions of your own. Read my regular blogs and look for other useful information on my website. You can also follow the link and email me. I look forward to hearing from you and providing you with useful information that will help lead you down the physical activity path.
