Steven Denham

Wellbeing Personal Trainer 

How can i help you improve your health?

My job as a Personal Trainer is to support, motivate and inspire you by designing interesting, varied and progressively challenging programmes. Many of us struggle to commit to exercise however; my approach has never been “one size fits all”

Whatever your situation I can offer you expertise from over 10 years of Personal Training, Cardiac Rehabilitation exercise and an in depth knowledge of cardiovascular health.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training
  • CIMSPA
  • Level 4 Diploma in Cardiac Rehab

What my Clients say:

“I had never been to a gym or, in fact, done much fitness or sport since school. I wanted a personal trainer to help me increase my general fitness, show me how to use the various gym equipment in what can be, at first, quite an intimidating setting, develop a fitness plan for me and to motivate me to carry on for the longer term. Steve took this "challenge" on with great professionalism and good humor whether tailoring my sessions to match my ability or being patient and reassuring as I learnt new exercises but continuing at all times to encourage me to achieve more and more. I very much enjoy my PT sessions and look forward to continuing them. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him."

Kamal Faruk

Wellbeing Personal Trainer 

How can i help you improve your health?

Fad diet and training ideas appear and disappear equally quickly. I have been in the Fitness Industry for over 8 years, during which time I have seen many such ideas claim unfulfilled promises, based on quick reward and unsustainable change. We also tend to use the word diet to incorrectly define an eating regime where we are allowed or not allowed to eat certain foods, but in reality, it refers to the total foods we consume.

Using the knowledge from my degree in Exercise Health and Nutrition has given my training scientific basis and perspective, particularly in my specialist areas of nutrition and weight loss. I am able to create realistic, practical eating and nutritionally balanced principals that can indeed last a lifetime.

My qualifications

  • Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training
  • CIMSPA
  • BSc Exercise Health and Nutrition

What my Clients say:

“Through additional holistic qualifications, Kamal incorporates the use of selected breathing and stretching techniques to enhance stress reduction and lifestyle management issues.  He is consistent and professionalism throughout and delivers results driven sessions”

Personal training is exactly that – working towards an individual goal, which matters most to you. Being able to identify what motivates and inspires you is one of the first steps to a successful training outcome and working together; as an experienced trainer of more than 15 years, my first priority is always to fully understand and appreciate what will work best for you. Self-confidence comes high on most people’s wish list hence one of my areas of fitness specialisations includes, self-defence, motivation and behaviour counselling.

‘Jason changed my image of the archetypal Personal trainer from the outset. My fitness goal was one of general fitness, which Jason helped me to break down in to what was important to me as an individual and then from a health and wellbeing point to view. He also explained and identified associated issues I’d not realised were part of the reason for my desire for change. His positive impact on my strength and conditioning, self-confidence, motivation and lifestyle behaviour is a permanent reminder of what we have already achieved and I continue to train with him and discover more about what really matters to me.’
