Rowing has always been my passion. That passion - and a fair bit of hard work - took me all the way to two Olympic Games (Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008).
Since retirement from International rowing, I've taken a huge interest in personal and group fitness training and feature writing.
And now I am married with a baby daughter.
Different Strokes is my forum for combining my thoughts, my experiences and my knowledge on fitness, family, finances and faith. And fitting it all in.
