Linda graduated in 2005 with a BEd Honours Degree in Physical Education from Stranmillis College. After graduating she moved to Sydney, Australia to teach Preschool. Although she loves to teach, her real passion has always been in Fitness.
While living in Australia she decided to obtain her fitness qualifications, building on her experience from many years coaching Women’s Artistic Gymnastics.
Linda embraces her passion in fitness by competing in figure competitions where she has gained titles such as Miss UK and runner-up in Miss Universe. She became interested in weight training from an early age as her father had a gym at home and trained weights daily. After watching him and keeping him company during his gym sessions she decided that she would like to ‘give it a go’ and from then she has never looked back.
As she started to see the results and positive changes in her body she decided in 2011 that she would really love to get into the competitive sport again and wanted a goal to aim towards so she decided to take part in NABBA NIs where she entered ‘Miss Trained Figure’ category achieving 3rd place.
