My aim as a Personal Trainer is to make your fitness training programme varied and effective, and above all for you to enjoy yourself and achieve the results you want.

I love to focus my client’s training not only in a gym environment but also offering outdoor workouts including running and boot camp style training. Training sessions could also include: weight training, cardio, boxing and grit style studio sessions. Intensity will depend on your current fitness levels but from this you will become healthier, fitter and stronger.

I really enjoy sessions even when I don't want to go he keeps me going!" - Liz Cook
