I chose to study Exercise Physiology because sport and maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle has always been important to me. My involvement as both an athlete and a coach in my chosen sports of tennis and touch football lead me to my studies, but after completing my degree I became vitally aware of the need for EPs in all areas, not just sport related. I am passionate about exercise becoming a regular part of everyone’s lifestyle independent of age, condition or previous exercise history.
