About me

Hi, my name is Ivy, also known as Ives.I would say I have a fun bubbly personality, none judgmental a very caring nature towards every aspect of life. I always look at the positive in any negative situation. I’m a big believer in creating the best life you can live as you are in charge of it. Making the most of everything you have and being grateful for who you are. 

Why the Fitness Industry?

I started my fitness journey in my early 20’s when I was overweight and didn’t live a very health active lifestyle. It got to a point where I was over feeling sluggish, tired and not happy with my overall appearance. So I bit the bullet and joined up to a gym and paired up with an amazing PT that I’m still friends with to this day. As I started seeing results, becoming more confident within myself I wanted to work in the fitness industry to help people build the best version of themselves

What is your Favorite movie or book?

I’m a bit of a romantic and love all the famous love movies, The Notebook – The Best of Me – P.S I Love You – Dirty Dancing.
