How to optimise health, fitness and sports performance for young people

Young adulthood is a crucial time when both bodies and minds are changing. This is also a window of opportunity for young people to make informed choices in order to optimise health and fitness and set themselves up for a healthy adult life.

Whether the aim is simply to be healthy, or to optimise sporting performance, this workshop will discuss how to achieve this.

I am a medical doctor with extensive clinical and research experience in Endocrinology and Sport and Exercise Medicine. Having conducted various research projects on the effects of training on developing athletes and with personal experience as mother of two boys involved in high level sport, I draw on this background to make workshops relevant and fact based. So these workshops are open to the whole family team: young people, parents and friends.

Previous workshops: Precision Pilates, Barnes Swimming Club St Paul’s School, Hillingdon Slipstreamers

Planned workshops: Junior riders at London Dynamos. Collaboration with sports development organisations. Workshop Flyer

Please contact me to arrange a bespoke workshop on any aspect of health, fitness, sports performance. Full details of workshops and classes.
