I have always been enthusiastic and willing to try new things.
Since childhood, sport has been a huge part of my life. I attended an athletics specialised primary school that taught me invaluable skills such as swimming, gymnastics and athletics as well as basketball, handball, volleyball ect.
go to competitions too. I got my bachelor degree at the Faculty Of Physical Education and Sport Sciences University in Budapest,Hungary.
During secondary school I trained professionally and competed in volleyball.
I received my bachelor degree at the Faculty Of Physical Education and Sport Sciences University in Budapest, Hungary. Whilst at university I competed in aerobics competitions and taught children tennis and gymnastics. I found teaching rewarding because I was able to motivate people to challenge themselves in a fun and fulfilling way. I then worked towards a swimming coach qualification and taught for 2 years at Olympic Champion, Tamas Darnyi's swimming school.
I love being a part of peoples success and I hope I can be part of yours.

Motivational Fitness Writer
Originally a rehabilitation client, Flo sustained a serious leg injury, having broken her leg in three places alongside significant ligament damage.
Flo’s aims to becoming stronger and fitter seemed unrealistic during a time where she felt distracted and demotivated due to her physical incapacity. As a result her motivation to recover from her injury, her psychological well being and self image deteriorated, left defeated by her injury and circumstances.
Not only did Flo tone up whilst re-gaining strength and stability in her legs, she now trains 3 times a week in Thai kickboxing and core fitness. Most importantly, Flo gained a new perspective on life, fully understanding the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and becoming, I quote, ‘the happiest, most focused and fittest I’ve ever been. This has had a positive impact on my relationships, my studies and my work.'
Flo’s progress is continuing, making her an excellent ambassador for ProTom Fitness. Understanding the struggle of self discipline and having pushed through to become the 'best version of herself to date' is inspirational. We are pleased to welcome Flo to the team and hope that she inspires you through our blog to become the best version of yourself.
