“I started Calisthenics because I love to challenge myself and I liked the idea of moving away from just lifting weights in the gym. I was already relatively strong but learning the patterning and technique is the biggest part to achieving your Impossible.

I have only been on my Calisthenics journey for a year but I have been on a journey to get strong for the last 10 years! When I first started in the gym I couldn’t even do one pull up! It doesn’t happen straight away but by having perseverance, consistency and determination anything is possible!

It’s been great joining the School of Calisthenics coaching team, I’ve really enjoyed learning from the guys in terms of Calisthenics and the coaching but also bringing my experience from professional sport and merging the two. Teaching at the weekly classes in Nottingham and workshops around the UK is one of the best parts of the job. I love helping people to achieve things that never thought their body was capable of and being part of that journey and seeing their face at a class or workshop when they do it is something very special.”
