I have been an RBE associate for ten years, working on training programmes, undertaking evaluations, delivering LGBT training and Understanding Health Improvement Level 2 training (RSPH) as well as modules of City & Guilds Level 3 Health Trainer course.
I trained as a fitness, aerobics and spinning instructor 15 years ago, working in numerous private and voluntary sector fitness centres across London, including Central London YMCA for 8 years, however after a decision to change career, I decided to work in the youth sector.
