I have always been very active and have been involved in most sports at some point in my
life but my true passion has always been football, which I played at a semi-professional level
until injury put paid to my career.
It was at that time that I found myself in an I.T job working shifts and generally missing
out on all the fun my friends were having. I eventually worked my way up the ladder and
ended up as a software developer but my heart was never really in it and I found myself
struggling to sit at a desk all day. I was a regular gym visitor when possible but I began to
suffer from lower back pain when at work. This got so bad that I went for a scan and was told
that I would need to have major back surgery to rectify the problem. This was a shock and I
thought I would never be able to live a healthy lifestyle again but after employing a personal
trainer to help me with my rehabilitation, I got the passion back for fitness.
I decided that I wanted to help people the same way that my personal trainer had helped me
so I put my money where my mouth was and paid to study a Personal Training Diploma. This
wasn’t without problems as I was still in full time work and had 2 young children to contend
with as well, had to use my annual holiday, and study in the evenings, but I got through it and
here I am.
I eventually took the plunge and have been running my Personal Training business full-time
now for the last few years. I’m still working as hard as ever but just spending time doing
something I enjoy has helped to make me more relaxed and healthier than I’ve been for a
long time. This has all been achieved by putting the knowledge I’ve gained to good use by
devising my own workouts and healthy eating plans, which is exactly what I will be doing for
I take great satisfaction in helping people to make changes to their lifestyles to help improve
their health and wellbeing.
Rest assured that if you train with me you will be getting someone who is passionate about fitness,
relaxed and easy going.
