Margaret has a degree in Psychology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Improvement and Promotion. She began her career as a swimming instructor — working with the NHS to deliver water-based COPD, cardiac, stroke, cancer and Parkinson's rehabilitation. She went on to qualify in Sports Injury Therapy and as a specialist Instructor in Neurological Injury Rehabilitation (ARNI).
Throughout her 20+ years working in healthcare, Margaret noticed a rise in young people in their 30s and 40s being referred for conditions typically associated with the elderly. And when a close relative became seriously ill in 2013, Maragret started looking for solutions.
Margaret began exploring the role of nutrition in our health, attending talks and connecting with naturopathic nutritionists. In 2018, she qualified as a Naturopathic Nutrition Advisor. Through her studies, Margaret gained a deep understanding of the causes and health consequences of blood sugar imbalance, hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance.
In addition to working with clinical conditions, Maragret also runs high intensity interval training (Hiit) and strength classes. Hiit training works by varying the heart rate, encouraging weight loss, improving functional strength and agility, and promoting all-round good health.
Today, Margaret brings her wealth of experience in health and fitness to the Prolongevity Programme. As a coach, she is passionate about helping clients take control of their health, and showing them the particular foods, or even situations, that exacerbate their metabolic condition.
In her spare time, Margaret enjoys climbing, cycling, running, travelling and reading
