My aim, from when I started my career, to this day, is to help as many people as I can. I pride myself on always delivering high standards of coaching, to allow my clients to not only get the results they hoped for, but to gain an understanding of training and nutrition, and to become tuned into their own bodies and what works well for them. I have a deep passion and love for coaching people through the correct and relevant information that will help them become healthier, happier – and, as a result more, confident – individuals.

3 fun facts
- I booked a one-way ticket to Australia almost three years ago on my own, and it’s been the best decision I’ve ever made.
- Outside my passion for all things health and fitness, my love for Rugby is also very strong, as I played the game from age 6 onwards.
- I’m arguably more fond of drinking pints of Guinness than a Personal Trainer should be.

PT Client Reviews
“I first started working with Barry late last year and immediately knew he was a master of his craft and is really dedicated to his field. Barry is the first Personal Trainer I’ve had who I really feel motivated with. He is supportive, yet holds me accountable all while creating a fun environment for training. Even though it’s only been a few months I can see huge changes to my form, body shape, mood and have hit more goals than I thought I would in a year.”
“Barry has been my PT for a few months and I have definitely noticed the difference. We pack in lots of work in the 40 minutes, the sessions never feel rushed. He’s always happy to share diet/exercise advice and I’m regularly hitting PBs. He’s always looking for small ways to fine tune my technique so I’m constantly improving. Barry also seems to know exactly how much fuel I’ve got in the tank for each set and always knows when I have a few more reps in me towards the end of a set. Very friendly guy with a great sense of humour, would definitely recommend Barry as a PT.”
“I went to Barry to step up my training. I was already training but not at the level I wanted to be at. His plan brought intensity and direction to what I was doing. I saw a big change in my overall body composition and most importantly for my legs. Barry was ready to answer any question big or small and went above and beyond to clarify what he was saying. His food plan wasn’t at all restrictive; it had loads of variety. I didn’t feel like I was on a ‘diet’, just eating correctly.”
