About Helen

Originally from London. I lived and worked in Montreal for 4 years then took the exciting leap to move to New York City, which has been my home for the last 7 years. I am in the very unique situation where I currently can and do work as an actress, spinning instructor and personal trainer in all of the these three cities when I travel there.

Fitness plays a major role in my life. I participated in my first Bodybuilding and Powerlifting competition in the fall of 2013 and continue to compete in both sports currently.

I compete in the 138lb weight class with the USAPL and have qualified for Nationals in every meet I have ever competed in along side placing first in my weight class. My maxes are -  286lbs Squat, 165lbs  Bench & 408lbs Deadlift.

I most recently competed in the 2019 INBF Northern States Super Natural Pro- Qualifier & Transformation on March 30th 2019 winning my group, best figure presentation and earned a spot in their biggest show this November (2019 Amateur & Pro World Championships).

Currently, I am a Spinning instructor and teach at NYSC & Simply Fit Astoria throughout the week. I also teach a full body bootcamp class at Simply Fit Astoria.

Fitness & Health clearly is very important for me, I love what I do, I live and breath it. It takes, patience, discipline, hard work, focus, enthusiasm, commitment to  reach any health & fitness goal and I feel I've been given the gift to help others reach theirs.

My sessions and programs are created to challenge and promote change. They will NOT be easy nor should they be but 100% achievable through your hard work & our trainer/client relationship.
