A little about me:

For the past 15 years I’ve been on my own mission to try and figure out what really works best when it comes to creating a healthy body and mind.

Throughout this time, I’ve also had the pleasure of working with 100’s of people helping them take steps towards their own version of eating well, moving well and living well.

I started my own journey into health and fitness some time ago when I first started training to be a personal trainer…

I’d always been heavily involved in sport growing up, playing golf and tennis to a good level.

At the same time I was lucky enough to work with some amazing coaches, so the transition from student to teacher was something I really enjoyed.

But I quickly realised something…

Even after qualifying as a Personal Trainer and completing my degree in Public Health I still knew very little. 

So, I decided to do something about it.

I began earning my stripes from the ground up in a gym that turned out to be the perfect training ground; a vibrant atmosphere of professionalism, knowledge, continual learning with a clear understanding and emphasis on how to do things the right way.

This starting point paved the way of what was to come for me as a young fresh faced personal trainer….

More studying, hands-on experience and insight into how to do things the right way. 

In this time I’ve been lucky enough to learn from some of the best in the world when it comes to human movement analysis, training methods and nutrition.

Unfortunately, the health and fitness industry we know today has a habit of making things very complicated when it comes to guiding you on the ways of improving your health and wellbeing.

That’s why I decided to start Real Food Function.

To set the record straight on the right way of doing things when it comes to the food we eat and the way we train to create long lasting results in your health.

With the right information in front of you, there’s no reason why you can’t make progress right now.

I hope you enjoy the articles and recipes on the blog whilst learning a thing or two about the right way to do things when it comes to developing your own version of a healthy and happy lifestyle.
