Bio:

Skye has had a passion for sport for as long as she can remember. Growing up in the UAE, it was there that she discovered the positive influence of an active lifestyle. She participated in athletics, netball and swimming, all at a highly competitive level.

Skye graduated from university with a degree in Sport and Exercise Science, which allows her to draw on the most recent clinical and exercise research. Whilst completing her bachelor’s degree Skye accumulated 300+ hours of voluntary activity that earned her a gold Go Herts Award.

To expand the knowledge gained during her undergraduate and to feed her passion for helping others, Skye has worked hard over the past year to complete her Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology at the University of Portsmouth and finish her BACPR course in the same time. This has met her personal goals in ultimately creating and applying cardiac rehabilitation principles to individualised exercise prescriptions.

Skye is a strong advocate for prescribing exercise to prevent and manage mental health, and has found it very effective at both preventing onset of depression and managing symptoms either on its own or together with other treatments.

For Skye, making sure that clients feel comfortable and encouraged to achieve a healthier lifestyle whilst realising their fitness goals, no matter what their ability, is the ultimate goal. She believes that small steps towards success is key to maintaining any exercise routine.

Having experienced her fair share of athletic injuries, she is keenly aware of the psychological and physical impact this has on an individual. This experience has helped her understand how people’s training goals can be affected, and hopes to support clients through their individual journeys.
