Three interesting things about me:


Being a competitive bodybuilder myself, as well as having interests in CrossFit, Muay Thai, and TRX training, I am passionate about helping people achieve their goals and firmly believe there is not a 'one size fits all approach to training.

What areas of fitness do you specialise in?

What are your fitness thoughts & experience?
I understand and appreciate the challenges people face when it comes to fitness and nutrition as I have faced many of them myself. Empathy and motivation are powerful tools to help people achieve their goals and watching their confidence, as well as their health levels, increase over time is a great reward of this industry.

If you could pass on one piece of training advice to a member at Max & Aegle what would it be?
Believe in yourself and never give up! You are worth ALL the effort in the world. You are braver than you think, more talented than you know, and more capable of more than you can imagine. I believe it doesn’t matter how many mistakes you make or how slow the progress is, but you always be ahead of the people who never tried. I like this quote: “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done”.

What workout do you like best, and why?
I get asked this question a lot by clients. And I always like to say: “The best exercise is the exercise you actually will do and like to do.” But If I would have to choose one, I would say – Planks. Planks work on stabilizing your core which you need to stabilize and strengthen your whole body.

What’s your favourite part of the club?
I don’t really have one favourite spot in the gym. However, I really like the gym in general. I like how open and bright the gym is. I love that we have a lot of natural daylight in Max & Eagle. Also, I like the outdoor area of the 110 restaurants. I find really relaxing to have coffee or lunch on the terrace during the Dubai winter month.

Why did you become a PT?
I really enjoy watching people become stronger, fitter, and more confident. A healthier version of themselves. It is very fulfilling for me to educate people about health, fitness, and nutrition. We only have one body, and we need to care for it and that is what fitness is all about.

If you weren’t a PT what would you be, and why?
I am a real foodie, so either a chef or a baker, or a Gardener. So, I grow my own food. Lol. But in all seriousness, I like to grow and nourish things, I like to create things from scratch, and I like the process of seeing things developing and changing for the better. Also, I think there is a little experimental factor in cooking, baking, or even gardening. So sometimes you must be creative.

Enjoy a new world
