Personal profile:

I have been personal training since 2004 and I am constantly adapting and developing myskills 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:

I have been interested in exercise and fitness throughout my school life, by taking part in PE and attending extra curriculum activities such as netball and rounders. Outside of school I continued my passion for netball, playing locally and also took part at my local swimming club, competing throughout the local area.

These fitness related activities began to help me understand the human body and the direction of which I wanted my career to go. Leading to enrolling on to and obtaining a level 2 diploma of health and fitness and a level 3 diploma in personal training. Whilst also at college I gained a level 3 diploma in sports massage as I thought it would complement my earlier qualifications.

Since leaving college I have gained a number of clients, including a young female academy football player and clients of varying ages, from 19 to 51 years old. I thrive off helping others achieve their goals and use my knowledge and passion to do so. The way I train people is, I like my clients to see results but only slightly after a couple of weeks. This is so that they can get use to the lifestyle of having fitness in their lives, which means their results will last longer.

It’s all about consistency, determination and patience! It will not be a eat this and do this exercise kind of experience, I will be there to help kick start your fitness journey bit by bit, I’ll be there to help you not only improve your physical health and mental health, but I’ll be there for you to understand why you are doing these exercises or why you’re eating certain foods etc. So not only are you having someone to help achieve your fitness goals, you’ll also be getting education, motivation and support throughout the process. All my clients get free nutritional advice with their packages with me and a free taster session to try before you buy.
