    CAREER OBJECTIVE STATEMENT Having been involved in the fitness industry for the past 23years, I have found my niche in personal training and training small groups. My aim is to target the over 40s giving them constant attention and professional service. I want my clients to feel completely comfortable in their surroundings and feel the desire to improve their health and fitness whilst exercising in a serene, upmarket environment. SKILLS AND ACHIEVEMENTS I am the founder of LifeCycle (www:lifecyclechallenge.com) which was set up in 1999 and raises both funds and awareness for persons suffering from renal failure to give the patients a better quality of life. The organization is now one of the largest NGOs on the island. LifeCycle organizes an extreme bicycle challenge every year. I have completed 3 of these challenges and was event organizer for all the 12 challenges that have been organized in the past 12 years. Whilst in the British Military Police I worked in both the Criminal Investigations Department and as part of a Weapons team for 5 years. I also received an RAF Commendation for my efforts in reducing criminal activities in and around military married quarters in the mid-1980s.
