Hi my name is Gareth and I am from Sale, Cheshire.
I am an advocate of mental health and well-being practices combined with physical activity. Through my own experience and study I know first hand the positive effect these techniques can have.
My goal is to help others, creating new positve habits, identifying purpose and setting meaningful goals; building resilience changing life for the better.
I really enjoy what I do, the wide variety of people I meet, and places I get to work.
The most important part of my job is the feeling of satisfaction I get, knowing that I have inspired someone to change their life for the better by becoming more physically active and living a healthy lifestyle.
