Andy started his working career in local government but learning that life in an office was not the for him he joined the fire service. This allowed him to follow the opportunity to further his passion for fitness and wellbeing qualifying as a personal trainer and a sports massage therapist with the London school of sports massage. Having always lived locally and with the sea a stone’s throw away, being in the water was always a natural draw and therefore this led to Andy becoming a keen surfer and later a keen paddle boarder taking regular trips to the west coast and Europe.
