training philosophy

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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. I’m arguably more fond of drinking pints of Guinness than a Personal Trainer should be.
