“Committing to hard work, determination and consistency will allow you to achieve anything your heart desires… If age has no boundary and the sky has no limit, then you are my ideal client.”
I have been a part of the health, sport and fitness industry since 1988. As a lifestyle educator I specialises in the management of low back pain, post-operative rehabilitation, exercise for the mature adult, sports specific training (for runners and triathletes) and exercise for general health and well-being.
My competitive spirit and years of experience as a runner and cyclist took me to the Word Duathlon Championships in Atlanta in 2002 where I represented South Africa, and in 2010 I represented Great Britain at the World Duathlon championships in Edinburgh. I’ve also enjoyed competing in IronMan Triathlons, Marathons and Ultra-Marathons.

“In 2011 I suffered 2 prolapsed discs in my lower back. After time spent in hospital, a relapse and very little info from the physio, I came away unsure of what to do next, anxious about a further relapse, I didn’t want to go out and couldn’t work. In 2013 I booked some training sessions with Sue, as she was a specialist in back problems like mine. This was a major turning point for me, Sue spent time assessing and going through my history, she understood my anxiety and knew a way we would work together to improve my situation. After only 7 months I was no longer taking painkillers and had lost 2 stone in weight, I’m able to work and enjoy family life again, I’m no longer anxious about relapse all the time. I cannot recommend Sue highly enough she has changed my life and my family’s lives too.”
How do you stay in shape?
My passions are running and cycling, I do combine this with strength training too.
I think its important to have a balanced diet, eating ‘clean’ unprocessed foods 80% of the time, and that way I find I can relax with this 20% of the time.
