The Royal Ballet Company and The Royal Ballet School
I began my studies in Strength and Conditioning Science (BSc) at St Mary’s University in 2010. While at University I competed as a weightlifter in the -77kg category and made it into the Great Britain Team. I then went on to complete my MSc in Sports Rehabilitation and working at St Mary’s University as a Graduate Assistant. Following this, I was successful in attaining my position with The Royal Ballet and later, The Royal Ballet School, as a strength and conditioning coach.
