    Training Specialties:

    With over 10 years experience as a self employed personal trainer, 8 of which in London I have developed a fairly wide base of knowledge. This wide spectrum of knowledge across different genres of training makes me perfectly suited to specialise in G.P.P (general physical preparedness) or in other words making people fit across the board. In the words of Crossfit “I specialise in not specialising” and can help get you very capable in every aspect of your physical fitness!

  • icon
    Biggest challenge over the next 12 months:

    To help educate the general population that gym based exercise can be beneficial, fun, varied and rewarding for everyone regardless of age, gender, ability etc.

    Favorite Food:

    The correct answer with my fitness head on is chicken….although I’m partial to the odd doughnut!

    Biggest Weakness:

    Growing hair on my head

    Hobbies:

    Crossfit…..although I have been known to take part in other sports including rugby, football and snowboarding; most notably I have played rugby at a competitive level representing various sides, Devon and Brunel University 1st XV. I can also sometimes be found playing the guitar or in local bars making up gym based dance routines.

    Most Embarrassing Moment:

    Probably when I was a personal trainer in Gym box Westfield London, hanging from gymnastic rings in a training session when another trainer thought it would be entertaining to pulldown my shorts so I was on full show to a very busy central London gym……I was not entertained!

    Training Specialties:

    As a result of extensive experience as a Personal Trainer, I have learnt how to customise each training programme to suit the individual’s specific needs, whatever their goals. With the experience of my own sporting activities and successes, I have developed a particular interest in the way in which CrossFit can be applied to aid and significantly improve peoples’ performance across endurance sports.

  • icon
    Biggest challenge over the next 12 months:

    My biggest challenge is also my most exciting – to show how gym based training undeniably helps improve every aspect of movement. Whether the goal is to run faster, lift heavier, lose weight or simply enjoy exercise more, applied CrossFit training methods will get results.

    Favorite Food:

    Peanut Butter on pretty much anything…

  • icon
    Biggest Weakness:

    That’s got to be my addiction to Peanut Butter too! People just don’t understand the trials and tribulations of a guy that can’t just stick a spoon in the jar once…!

  • icon
    Hobbies:

    Before my introduction to CrossFit in recent years, I sailed competitively at World and European level for a number of years. When back on dry land, you’ll often find me out trail running, cycling, or having a beer socialising with friends.

  • icon
    Most Embarrassing Moment:

    Definitely when sailing at a European event in Croatia. First race of the day and I managed to split the crotch of my wetsuit completely open. Safe to say it was a bit “airy” for the rest of the races, with a few funny looks on returning to shore. A bad day to choose to go Commando…!
