 “If like many people you have suffered over the years from unnecessary physical pain or you struggle with your body’s level of mobility… it doesn’t have to be that way”.

I have worked in the fitness industry since graduating university in 2009. Throughout my career I worked with a broad range of clients, acquiring multiple skills from remedial massage, strength and conditioning to nutrition. This has led me to my specialisation in reducing the risks of injury through mobility and strength. Understanding the interplay between strength and mobility is huge! These qualities are inseparable and they affect each other at all times, improving or impairing performance for each movement. Getting stronger doesn’t just mean stacking plates and hitting more reps, correct movement patterns are just as important for body performance.

So how might this philosophy of training help you? If like many people you have suffered over the years from unnecessary physical pain or you struggle with your body’s level of mobility… it doesn’t have to be that way.

You may have noticed the following:

  • Restricted movements in your day to day life
  • Regular unwanted aches and pains
  • Reduced flexibility (perhaps you can’t touch your toes) and increased stiffness
  • Poor posture
  • You’ve become more Injury prone

If the above resonates with you on some level then that’s where I come in. We can work together to restore your body to move pain free, improving your quality of life and increasing your strength so that you don’t return to old habits and the above symptoms.

Alongside teaching clients how to move more effectively, I work with those who wish to take their weight training to the next level. Lifting weights has become a popular movement for both genders and it’s important to understand how correct programming can improve movement patterns and improve your physique and strength whilst staying injury free.

My attitude towards training is very simple. To achieve success there must be a goal and plan of action established; otherwise it is nothing short of a wish or a dream. Together we would look at the bigger picture and implement smaller, manageable goals whilst keeping you accountable on your journey. Remember “you didn’t get to where you currently are overnight and you won’t change to where you want to be instantly… small steps and consistency is key; becoming stronger, healthier, fitter is a marathon not a sprint.”
