About Me

 

A New Zealander who has lived in the UK for awhile, I’ve been physically active for many years.  My journey into the trainer side of the fitness world began when I decided to make a “must do at least once in a lifetime” type goal come true.  This was to complete a marathon (not that I’d done any running before). 

To keep the story short, I had all the problems under the sun.  Strained muscles, sprained ankles, problem knees, Achilles tendonitis amongst others.  But I wanted my goal so much, I researched and worked on my various problems and found just how interwoven the body is.  I was utterly fascinated. 

This led me towards the CMYQ Level 2 Fitness Instructor to completing the CMYQ Level 3 qualified Personal Trainer and then further training to be a Level 4 Postural Stability Instructor.  Its best to look at the body as a whole, not just nutrition, just activity/sport or even just one body part over another. 

I am a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals and have appropriate insurance (look me up if you like, Nadia Pavlof, www.exerciseregister.org, postcode TW18).  I also have certificates in Falls Prevention, Exercise Referral for Clients with Specific Controlled Conditions (also known as GP Referral), Adapting Exercise for Older Adults and Core Stability.

Just in case you’re wondering.  I have completed 4 marathons…so far.

Other main interests that I have are: animals, first aid, mau taiaha (a Maori martial art), motorcycling and running.  Past interests have included belly dancing (was a member of the award winning  dance troupe The Egyptianize) and I used to be an active member of the cultural group Beats of Polynesia
