About Me

Working with my passion as a personal trainer & sports masseuse.

Essentially I would call myself a trainer and a lifestyle coach, but this has developed over years of learning from some of the best trainers, osteopaths, physios, doctors and lecturers in the industry. I started by teaching group fitness in gyms and schools and grew this into a private personal training and sports massage business.   Coming from a farming family, working hard is something that you just do, and this important value was innate when it came to hockey. I loved being part of a team, learning new skills, improving my physical and tactical performance and winning was pretty awesome too.  Being part of the Junior England Under 16 & Under 18 hockey squads gave me an insight into how we can improve our health, fitness and performance. When my aunty told me I could actually have a job in the field of fitness, the idea of PE teaching took a backseat.  The real turning point though, came about a year after university. Having played three years of relaxed hockey, I made a plan to go out to Sydney to play hockey for six months and live the Australian dream. I was so excited. Unfortunately, two months before I was due to fly out, that dream was crushed. Whilst playing a pre-­season hockey tournament, I ruptured my right anterior cruciate ligament. The next eighteen months from pre to post operation were a real challenge. I lost all confidence and direction. I feel sorry for my parents at that time, as I was far from pleasant to be around! However, it was through my rehabilitation that my interest in personal training was born. So off I went to Spain, having booked a course to complete my personal training qualifications.  During my recovery, I had so much support from my family and friends. This helped me enormously, and with their help, I got myself through it.  Now I instil this self-­belief into my personal training clients. I am there every step of the way with help and support in relation to a client’s health and fitness.

I have seen first hand, the benefits of 'ski-fitness' whilst training many ski enthusiasts. The feedback received after completing a course of ski specific training and returning home after a successful trip on the slopes has always been fantastic. Clients have reported less joint pain, less falls and faster recovery from long days. This has been achieved very simply through effective balance, core and strength based exercises suitable for all abilities and ages.

Preparation is definitely the key!

A very informative read Richard.

I see on a daily basis the effects of stress on my personal training clients. I confidently refer them out to Osteopaths for acupuncture especially during periods of high stress. The feedback from them is always overwhelmingly positive.

This is a great simple and very much informative blog Tom. I think water intake these day is getting explained in far too much depth, it's over complicating it for the general public. I often have clients asking me about hydration, looking very puzzled from reading over complicated advice. It needs to be kept simple. Drinking water little and often is definitely the way forward .

Fantastic article Tom. Pre-natal fitness is often over complicated and conflicted and this is a fantastic article for any expecting mother to use as a guide to their fitness during pregnancy. As a personal trainer, for me, 'listening to your body' during the process is the most important point of all.
