When and why did you start working in the fitness industry?

I have always enjoyed taking part in a variety of sports from an early age. Whilst playing team sports I wanted to become stronger and more conditioned. I received my first set of weights on my 15th birthday and never looked back! Training over time became my main focus, and the gym a sanctuary to tune not only my body but my mind. A place to reflect, focus & grow. My keen interest in bodybuilding & functional training, fuelled my ambitions, and motivated me year on year to improve my physique. In recent years, my love for training has grown into a vocation. With my 16 years coaching experience and 20 years of mastering training systems it has forged a strong technical knowledge that I hope to utilise in the support of client’s needs. I believe strongly in training the mind and body to work as one.

What are your specialities and preferred methods?

Your long-term success is the goal! Most fitness and diet plans fail because they are too generic and are not able to factor in the stresses of everyday life. I am changing that one client at a time. I work with individuals to create bespoke plans using a holistic approach that will achieve results both in the short term and become sustainable for the future. Nutrition will form the foundation to achieve success, I promote that people work hard in the week and earn a cheat meal at the weekend. This helps promote both a positive mental health and relationship with food.

As a coach I specialise in:
Hypertrophy & Bodybuilding
Strength & Conditioning
Metabolic Conditioning
Weight loss
Lifestyle & Nutrition
Wellbeing

What are your hobbies and interests?

Having a young family, life can sometimes be chaotic for me and although I love my family, I am a strong advocate in finding time for just me. Golf provides an outlet where I can get away from the stresses of life and enjoy being outdoors. We are so lucky to live on the coast and I try to get out with the family as much as possible. Also having a strong swimming background, I enjoy taking the boys to the pool when I can.

What is your favourite healthy meal, and cheat meal?

I love spice! Spicy chicken is my number 1 go to with any healthy meal I prepare. My favourite cheat meal would either be a big cheesy lasagne or if I am dining out you can’t beat a juicy burger!!
