Who Is Theo?
Hey, I'm Theo the creator and writer here at Lift Learn Grow.
I know this is an about page but I've honestly never been very good at this bit. You know, the whole meeting new people thing.
I tend to make too much eye contact, go for the hug instead of the handshake, instantly forget your name and stumble over my words.
All the usual cringe worthy mistakes! But I'm not giving up...
...in the hope we can get to know each other a little better without the awkwardness I’ve condensed my life into the following bullet points.
- Born in the UK but currently living in China and learning Mandarin, because hey, why the hell not
- I love dogs but not all dogs, Labradors are currently my favourite
- A coffee junkie trying to control my habit with varied levels of success
- When I’m not working I like to read, either to learn or to escape reality for a while
- I’ve been a qualified personal trainer, working freelance since 2012 and started this site in 2016
- My favourite fruit is pineapple, closely followed by papaya
- I’ve never been fat, but I have been skinny fat and suffered with body confidence for a long time
- I intimately know the feeling of being uncomfortable in your own body
- After 5-aside football and strength training my other fitness love is kickboxing
- I have a black belt, have competed nationally and have 5 years of teaching experience
- I’ve struggled with shyness, confidence and body confidence on and off since my teens into the present day
So, that's me.
