My fencing coach told me that I needed to build up the power in my legs and improve my speed, agility and balance. I have been working with Sinead since March 2015 and she has really helped me with these goals.

On recent re-testing during the National Talent Programme, I had improved a lot on my scores last year and was able to achieve the high standards required. I also won a gold medal in the Junior/Cadet Commonwealth competition in South Africa recently when fencing forĀ  the England Cadet team and have been very successful in other national competitions.

Sinead gives me a planned and structured programme of challenging workouts each week and provides me with clear guidance on injury prevention which is very important to me. I am very grateful for the support and advice which Sinead gives to help me towards further achievements and success in my sport.
