Up and active has been set up by Tanja Slater. I have now set up challenging training camps with Up and Active to provide something different. It is important with the fast pace of life, that you get more from your holiday.
I started my sporting life as a gymnast, realised quite quickly that I loved sport. Then studied Sports and Exercise Science at University and realised I wanted to compete in sport and get more involved with coaching and the science behind it. Soon I became hooked into the sport of Triathlon following University and it was not long before my hobby became more serious.
Having been selected for the U23's European Championships and finished 5th, I then decided to turn full time, and competed as Senior Elite Triathlete in National Elite Championships, European Cup Races, and the European Senior Championships, where I finished regularly in the top 8.
After a 2 year battle with an Inner Ear Virus I managed to get back to consistent training, but just focused on cycling, a new challenge and a new adventure. Racing as a cyclist for the GB team at two World Championships and in many other races in Europe in preparation for the major events. I signed for the Swiss Professional Cycling Team, Raleigh Lifeforce and lived in Switzerland with team mates, racing around the world. Cycling was totally different from Triathlon, but I soon learnt new skills, trained differently and raced with the team. An amazing experience and I has happy to secure a Stage Win in the Women's Tour de France.
