“I love working with Own Body as it gives me flexibility between work and family life. I love to see my clients’ smiling faces as they do things they never thought they could. I believe everyone is unique so that we can tailor our exercises to individual needs in order to achieve their highest potential. This is really challenging and rewarding”
