Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury (ARNI)

About Me

Professional trainer with over 15 years experience in fitness instruction specialising in rehabilitation and falls prevention.

What Can I Do For You?

My career in the health and fitness industry began over 10 years ago working in my local gym as fitness instructor. I soon developed a keen interest in rehabilitation and took on additional training to become a GP exercise referal instructor. This role provided me with an abundance of experience whilst rehabilitating clients from illnesss and injury, but I wanted to become more specialized. I felt that I needed to spend time with clients at an earlier stage in their recovery so began working with NHS Physiotherapists on a voluntary basis. To my surprise I was instantly drawn in and found myself extremely interested in neurological conditions , particularly stroke. In 2011 I finally made the move into NHS services where I spent 7 years working as an Associate Practitioner in a community stroke rehabilitation team. I worked alongside a variety of specialists in the field and gained extremely valuable experience and knowledge of stroke recovery. In 2013 I qualified as a specialist instructor with ARNI (Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury) and started to draw on these skills in my NHS role where I successfully implemented a pilot trial for improving the NHS Stroke pathway. In 2018 I felt it was time to return to my roots so switched my NHS role from stroke specific rehab to general rehab where I now assist patients with their recovery form illness, injury, deconditioning and falls prevention since qualifying as a Postural Stability Instructor. My time is now split between my NHS role and privately training clients on a one to one basis.
