Personal profile:

I have been personal training since 2004 and I am constantly adapting and developing my skills and knowledge so as to offer the best possible service and advice.

I believe that exercise and fitness should be as varied and enjoyable as possible and I feel that I achieve this by introducing clients to a variety of different training styles allowing a well-rounded development of all the fitness skills: Strength, Speed, Power, Flexibility, Coordination, Stamina, Cardiovascular, Respiratory Endurance, Agility, Accuracy and Balance. Concentrating on your body’s performance will not only make your experience of exercise much healthier, it will also keep you trim and looking in great shape.

I strongly believe that ‘personal’ training should be exactly that, personal to your goals, ability, experience and interests. To achieve this I complete a thorough lifestyle consultation with every client, set realistic and achievable goals and continually monitor and record progress.

My knowledge + your homework + our commitment = YOUR RESULTS !

Personal profile:

Sport and fitness is a major part of my life. I was fortunate enough to play District and County Football, was on trial at several professional clubs and played semi professionally. I’ve competed in a variety of sports including captaining my team in winning the Great British Handball title.

For the past 30 years I have served the midlands as frontline Police officer. Over the past 18 years my role has been as a Sergeant leading teams through a variety of challenging and diverse activities.

As part of a team I have competed in six Winter Tough Guy competitions and completed the British Three Peaks challenge. I personally thrive on the challenge of pushing myself to ‘new’ levels in the gym. Due to some of the extreme activities undertaken I have suffered serious knee injuries resulting in four operations to rebuild the knee. This has motivated me even more to maximise the opportunities I have to be the best I can with what I am fortunate enough to have.

As I enter my 50’s, with these experiences behind me I fully appreciate the value of a healthy body and healthy mind. The importance of cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, endurance, flexibility and nutrition has never been so important. I am privileged to be able to carry out my passion in a working environment. I have a desire and commitment to help others achieve their fitness goals in a fun and pleasurable manner thus helping enhance people’s quality of life.
