I am very passionate about sport and physical development and show that I care in supporting people to achieve their overall goals through fun, motivating sessions.

Lauren was able to teach me exercises that I have never tried before and came to love and look forward to doing. She is really friendly and will always ask how I’m going which helped create such a great friendship throughout my training.”

Ray Anderson

Wellbeing PT and Joint Pain Lead

How can I help you improve your health?

Firstly, it’s never too late to change! Improving your health begins with you making that decision. Once that decision is made, if you provide the commitment and consistency, my knowledge of the training and nutritional needs of the older trainers will help you achieve your goals. Why not come and have chat to see if I can help? 

My qualifications

  • CIMSPA Certified
  • Joint Pain Advisor

What my Clients say:

“Ray is my personal trainer and he is the reason I regularly attend the gym. His workouts are fun, but well-tailored and he seems genuinely interested in increasing his own expertise and knowledge to the benefit of his clients.

I have certainly noticed a difference in my own fitness levels since attending both his Over 50s circuit training and 1-1 sessions. What's more, coming to the gym isn't a chore! Having lovely, personable trainers, like Ray, makes exercise fun. I notice too, that he is thoughtful and kind with those less fit. He doesn't make us feel uncomfortable.

The NHS is actually putting prevention at the heart of the Nation's health and exercise is increasingly a part of this. I recommend Ray to my friends. He's a great professional!”
