Harriet’s fitness story:
The thing about a fitness journey is that you never reach a final destination, the journey continues for the rest of your life. Day by day, month by month, you get stronger, both physically and mentally and then all of a sudden you look back at where you were last year and realise just how far you have come.
My love for sport started at age 5 when I stepped into my first Gymnastics club. Fast forward to more of a present day and I embarked on my fitness journey in January 2015.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My Grandfather was a British Champion boxer and even throughout his career he still worked 12 hour days and supported a family of 8. I also take huge inspiration my coach Omar and all my other fitness friends. Surrounding myself with such positivity, inspires me on a daily basis.
What’s your key to your success?
Someone once described me as being lucky…my response was ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’. I believe that my hardwork and determination is why i have achieved certain things in life. I put 110% into everything I do, whether that’s at work or out on the track.
What was the best advice you were ever given?
My mother always told me to look for a positive out of a negative situation. This piece of advice carried me through my competitive career as gymanst and an athlete. The hardest part about competitive sport is realigning your focus and staying motivated when things aren’t going to plan.
Do you have a phrase or motto you live your life by?
No pain. no gain!
Every session counts: Maximum efforts = Maximum output.
