I stand out from the crowd (and believe me, it’s a large crowd) of personal trainers on a number of counts. I work from my own private gym studio. No one else uses it. It will only ever be me and you. That means no one else is watching what you do and you don’t have to wait for equipment to be free.
My speciality is in weight training, be that for permanent fat loss, muscle growth, strength gains, power, speed, posture, bone density, general health or any of the other benefits of weight training. If you want a 16 week running schedule to get you marathon ready, then I am really not your man. However, if you want a weight training plan to build your strength and endurance during your off-season, then give me a call.
I integrate nutrition into each client’s programme. It’s not an add-on. It’s included in the price. It’s bespoke to your needs (unless you’re on my ready made online programme) and is based on latest research and experience. Telling clients to eat what the government recommends (which is the basic training for personal trainers) is not good enough – if it was, the population wouldn’t be as unhealthy as it is.
If my previous business career has taught me anything, it’s to read as widely as you can and make sure you understand what’s going on around you, not just in your own world. Since creating Thrive in 2011, I continue to invest in my education and aim to learn from the best. Some of the organisations I listen to the most are listed below so you can assess for yourself how high they set their bars.
