I first met Glenn Cook and Team Bodyworks, whilst completing both my BSc and MSc at the University of Brighton, through the University swimming team and as part of my research where both of my dissertations were looking at aspects of physiology and biomechanics swimming performance.
Following my degrees, I began working for South West London & St. Georges Mental Health NHS Trust as a clinical exercise therapist in 2004. Over the past 3 years I have specialised as lead forensic clinical exercise therapist and have developed expertise in this field presenting at national conferences on the importance, need and benefits of improving physical health for those suffering from mental health conditions.
I began my swimming career at Wandsworth Swimming Club competing up to national level
I also began my coaching career at Wandsworth SC and have been coaching at Team Bodyworks since 2014. Over this time I have been lucky enough to have been able to coach swimming for all age groups and standards from children to seniors and from beginners to internationals in swimming and triathlon
I have competed at county level in a number of sports including football, athletics, volleyball, hockey and rugby. I currently play rugby for Eastbourne Rugby Club and have captained them for the past 2 years as well as having coached the colts section and as well as playing am now the strength and conditioning coach for the senior teams. Having worked under a number of coaches and mentors of highest level in various sports, I have developed my coaching style to incorporate their use of various approaches and coaching styles.
Married to Yvette Grice of Team Bodyworks, I have been closely involved in various aspects of triathlon travelling to events around the world and have gained valuable experience in coaching, management and have developed a good knowledge of race preparation and organisation for both age group and elite standard athletes.
