About Me

I've been teaching fitness and encouraging a healthy lifestyle for over 25 years. I have a holistic and realistic approach to health and exercise which has nothing to do with the latest fads or trends... Instead, I love to inspire and encourage individuals to be the best person they can be, helping them to create and implement a realistic, consistent and effective health and fitness program into their everyday life.

I first started training to be a fitness professional when I was in the Royal Air Force back in 1991. I attended college for a year and in my spare time taught circuit training and other fitness classes to the airmen & women based at RAF Benson with me... After leaving the RAF in 1995 and whilst working in civil aviation, I completed my personal training and Modern Pilates level 3 qualifications. I then went on to study at University full time for five years achieving a Sports Therapy BSc 1st class Hons degree in 2008. Soon after and in 2011 I completed my Masters degree as a Chartered Physiotherapist.

During this time and since I've built up a successful personal training business in North Yorkshire, worked for the NHS as a Physio in Cardiac Rehab & heart failure services, and more recently worked at a private Dales musculoskeletal practice. I'm continually updating my skills and knowledge and in July 2018 completed a yoga alliance U.K 250hour yoga teacher qualification and now teach community and private classes in North Yorkshire...

As part of my own health and fitness training I have completed lots of 10k races the Swaledale and Edinburgh marathons and more recently have competed in cycling sportives and duathlons in the local area. I practice what I preach by adopting a holistic approach to my health regime, participating in a varied training program, eating healthily, sleeping well and laughing lots...

I'm committed to providing a bespoke service to each person I train or treat using only gold standard techniques that work out! I look forward to meeting the 'New You' soon...
