Powerlifting, Strength


I’m a competitive powerlifter in the 66kg weight class and I also aim to challenge myself with running and cycling events, such as 10K’s or duathlons (run, bike, run), to see what I am capable of. I’ve been coaching since 2010 and in that time have done numerous strongman and similar strength based competitions. It wasn’t until I was introduced to powerlifting that I found a passion for a sport that allowed me to express my desire for competition whilst providing me with a clear objective measure of progress. My love of powerlifting has led to assistant coaching with British Powerlifting at International Competitions.

I want to share my experience, skills and knowledge through Donut Barbell, coaching individuals around the globe to realise their potential. I believe strength training can provide many busy individuals with a few hours per week to focus on themselves, be mindful and improve their health in a safe environment.
