What makes you a Boutique Sport Girl?

Sport has always been a huge part of my life and I recently set up upmysport.com with a good friend to encourage more people to get involved, so it’s now become my career too! I want to show there’s something out there for everyone, and particularly to encourage those who haven’t necessarily thought of themselves as "sporty" before to give it a go by taking a lesson.

I don’t take it all too seriously though and I definitely appreciate a few glasses of wine and a hot tub at the end of a big sporting day. For me, it’s all about the mix of a physical challenge, learning new skills and spending quality time with friends doing something you love.

What is your favourite sport?

Tough question! Growing up, I played lots of tennis, squash and lacrosse and later discovered more adventure sports like skiing, hiking and mountain biking. This year, I’ve taken up rock climbing and yoga. I think skiing has to be top of my list. Nothing can beat a day spent hurtling down a mountain in fresh powder snow…

What’s your biggest sporting achievement?

Completing the Haute Route, a 114-mile ski touring route between Zermatt in Switzerland and Chamonix in France. A group of friends and I got together and were guided for 5 days by two mountain guides from Zermatt. With an average of 7 hours uphill per day carrying all your kit, it’s a pretty exhausting way to spend a holiday, but also an incredible experience to be surrounded by enormous glaciers and stunning 4000m peaks in every direction. We had prepared for months beforehand and so the sense of achievement in reaching the end was amazing. Totally worth all the hard work and gruelling personal training regime beforehand.
