Leading an active lifestyle has been a staple of my formative years, playing multiple sports from a young age before focusing on Rugby in my late teens, which led to a 10 year career playing across the National Leagues and representing numerous County sides in various age groups. Throughout this time I felt I needed to understand how to train in order to compete at the best of my abilities, which is where my passion for the strength & conditioning truly began.
Since I’ve stopped playing Rugby, I have competed in multiple CrossFit competitions, begun playing Cricket again and I am an avid cyclist, which has helped me understand the demands of various activities and sports. Along the way I have worked with and been fortunate enough to pick the brains of some fantastic coaches which has helped expand my knowledge base.
I am a firm believer that fitness and performance require not only a strong body but an even stronger mind.

WE HIGHLY VALUE THE ‘PERSONAL’ ASPECT IN PT – WE GET TO KNOW YOU FIRST & HELP OVERCOME POTENTIAL BARRIERS!
Based on your experience, ability, and on information gathered in Step 1, you will then be offered a session to assess where you are in relation to your goals.

HOW DOES PT DIFFER AT ELEMENTS FROM OTHERS?
We have a bespoke and totally unique approach to 1-1 coaching. From the first consultation session where we will help you identify areas in your own perceived needs that you may not be aware of.
To our assessment protocol will enable us to thoroughly plan out your roadmap to success and no matter which training style suits your goals the most, we will identify the ways that will ensure you get there – while keeping you informed of the WHY behind the WHAT at every stage of your training.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO ACHIEVE FROM PERSONAL TRAINING?

I’VE HEARD PERSONAL TRAINERS ARE JUST THERE TO ‘BEAST ME’, IS THIS TRUE?

Although exercise must CHALLENGE YOU, to make progress, you need to be able to stick with it!
