As a former GB elite triathlon champion (middle distance and national series winner) and world masters’ triathlon medallist (3rd world triathlon long course) I have continued to ‘walk the talk’ in personal health and fitness. I have worked in the sport, fitness and leisure industry since 1988, in positions ranging from personal trainer, GP exercise referral leader, elite sports coach, health & fitness manager and general manager. Throughout this time, I have developed a wealth of knowledge to provide personalised training programmes and services to meet and exceed personal goals and aspirations

Whether your goals are to increase general fitness and toning, better manage your weight, or compete in an endurance event; I have the experience and knowledge to direct and motivate you to achieve your objectives

My personal training approach is based on years of practical and theoretical knowledge, with an emphasis on developing clients’ personal confidence, motivation, self-analysis, exercise and dietary knowledge; and to inspire long term healthy lifestyle adherence

I will be pleased to discuss how I can assist you meeting your personal goals. For full LED Members a FREE initial, no obligation, fitness review meeting with me is recommended.

Customer stories

This year I entered my fourth Race for Life and decided to walk the first part, then aim to run towards the finish of the 5K course.  After the first few hundred yards my friend remarked that I seemed much fitter than in previous years.  I explained that I have been helped by a personal trainer, Vladka Juroskova in Honiton for some time now and that her careful and thorough guidance had made a such great difference. Although I started from the back of the pack, we finished the course in just under 60 minutes, and by then not at the back!

So thank you, Vladka, all your efforts and patience are much appreciated.  I am really looking forward to the next race in 2018!
