Fully invested in the Coaching Process

We offer a truly one to one experience where no one person’s experience will never be the same.  From the first email conversation, we have together finding out who you are and what you are about will be our central goal.

Having been involved in lifting and coaching over numerous sports at all kinds of levels, I understand implicitly that what makes someone tick is individual.

You should understand that if you decide to apply to work with us that you will not receive a quick fix you are starting a journey which we will be taking together.

  • Work with a coach who understands exactly what you need to do to improve and succeed and who won’t let you settle for anything other than what you ideally need to do.

  • Unlimited technique feedbacks from video analysis.
  • Help with nutrition and diet plans.
  • No one experience is going to be the same as we aim to give you exactly what you need whatever that is.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do your services cost?

We don’t offer a set service for a set price since not every use case is the same.  We set what we believe is a fair price based off the client’s situation and needs.  Generally my services cost in the region of £100 per month.  If you want to discuss our pricing in more detail please make an enquiry

How do I know if you can help me?

There isn’t really a problem in the world of health and fitness that I can’t really help with.  If you are looking for preparation for a bodybuilding show then I would look to another trainer who specialises in this area such as my good friend Ben Tormey.

I specialise in performance (elite sport/strength and conditioning consultation) and strength training with a strong specialisation in powerlifting.

How quickly can I expect to hear back from you?

I endeavour to reply to all requests in 24 hours of the initial correspondence.

If you would like to work with me then please shoot me an email and let’s get started on making you better today.
