A highly motivated, resourceful and innovative individual with significant experience of academia in the UK where I gained international business experience. I have had a house and 2 gites in Normandy since 2015 and I left the UK in 2016 to live permanently in France. I manage the 2 gites and have a gym on site which is available for use by guests in the gites. I am a Personal Trainer and Nutrition Adviser and have a number of clients. I have been a long distance runner since 1981 and have run all distances up to and including marathons. I decided to leave UK academia after 30 years to focus on sport. I became a personal trainer and a nutrition adviser and at the beginning of 2019 I have opened my own gym on site. I am passionate about Healthy Ageing, Functional Fitness and Sport for All. I am keen to promote Fitness Tourism and am looking forward to welcoming guests into my gites this year and sharing the gym with them.
