About Robyn Phillips
Since graduating (2014) I have completed further courses in Sports Taping, Safeguarding Children, Paediatrics and Leadership in Running Fitness; amongst other ongoing training.
My philosophy is live, love, learn, laugh and be happy. I love to be helpful.
In my previous career I was a project accountant working in various countries including New Zealand, Ireland and the United Kingdom. When my children were born I could no longer face the endless hours of managing corporate spreadsheets. My long held interest in sports medicine and exercise turned into a passion for osteopathy, and that led to five years of intensive study. Learning has always been an important aspect of my life. I make an effort to learn more everyday.
Since my battle with breast cancer (2015) I have been exercising every day. I believe that physical fitness is preparation for the rest of my life. In 2017 I took part in long distance walking events including the Ultra Challenge Winter Walk (20km), the London Moonwalk (42 km), the Ultra Challenge London to Brighton half (56km) and the Oxfam Trailwalker (100km). I also competed in the Hever Castle Triathlon series at Super Sprint distance. My regular activities include walking, running, cycling, swimming and yoga.
My upcoming physical challenges include walking the Yorkshire 3 Peaks (42 kms), running in a Gauntlet Triathlon relay team (21.1km) at Cholmondeley Castle, and the Sprint Plus triathlon (800 swim, 40km cycle, 8km run) at Hever Castle.
These challenges help me to understand just how adaptable the human body really is, and provide the motivation to get stronger than ever.
