My Personal Training Approach and Philosophy

 

Finding Connection with an Active and Healthy Life-style

I have never felt like the typical personal trainer. Sport and fitness has never been my whole life. I found most sports awkward (and I still do and am keen to avoid them). At the same time, I understood the importance of good health and fitness. I want others who have been turned off training to give it a go (or another go). Don't let false starts or negative experiences put you off. I aim to make fitness and healthy living a fun and fulfilling experience.

 

Getting Results is the Biggest Motivator

It was clear to me that staying active, directly resulted in more positive mental health. This is the main motivating factor for me when putting time aside to pick up the weights, go for a run and which helps me to avoid going for the box of (dairy free) chocolates. Within weeks you'll start to see the results come in and this will also be incredibly motivating for you. 

Charging Up with Plant Power

Balanced nutritional practices are key to transformative results. Before I took meat out of my diet I suffered from often mild to sometimes extreme bouts of low energy. 4 years ago, I adopted a Vegan diet and life-style and have never felt better. Find out more about my Vegan journey.

 

As a Vegan, my energy and vitality is now much higher. I want to share this experience with everyone. I ask my clients (and anyone who will listen) to work towards a plant based life-style. Studies not only show that it is significantly better for our health in all profile indicators, but also the health of the planet and a more compassionate and just way to live. I will support and guide you with nutritional and well as training requirements.

A plant based whole food diet is the healthiest approach and we will work to make a number of small changes to your nutrition which will make a big difference to how you look and feel. Alongside our training sessions we can look at your food diaries on a regular basis and make easy substitutions to your existing diet.

 

You won't look back once you experience the benefits of a plant based diet.

Gay Friendly Personal Trainer

As a gay personal trainer, I am fully aware that many gay people meet more barriers than the general population to being healthy and active.

 

These worrying stats speak for themselves. '55% of LGBT men were not active enough to maintain good health, compared to 33% of men in the general population' find out more & 'Lesbian, gay and bisexual older adults are more likely than heterosexuals to suffer chronic health conditions' find out more.

 

Having volunteered at gay charities, supporting LGBT people with their health and fitness and volunteering on Switchboard and through my own personal experiences I have seen such inequalities first hand and understand these barriers as I have personally been affected by them.

Health and Fitness Belongs To Everyone

When training my clients I understand that they do not label themselves athletes. Many of them, would simply like to have better energy levels, feel happier, and more confidence, whilst staying healthy and with a body shape which makes them feel good.

 

My clients want to be part of a health and fitness world that they previously felt was not a place for them and they no longer want to miss out on the benefits of an active life-style. They are busy people doing their best in their lives with work, family, friends, studies and a million other considerations.
