I stand out from the crowd of online personal trainers on a number of counts. I worked out of my own private gym studio with face to face PT clients for 6 years. It was only ever me and the client, which allowed me to focus purely on their needs, their progress and getting them the successes they wanted.
Working so closely with face to face clients in this way gives me a great understanding of how to programme exercise and nutrition for people from almost any starting point.
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 so you can thrash your PB, 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 and is based on latest research and experience. Telling clients to eat what the government / instagrammers / bloggers / celebrities / mates recommend is not good enough – if it was, the population wouldn’t be as unhealthy as it is.
If my previous 20 year career in corporate treasury 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 2012, I’ve continued to invest in my education and aim to learn from the best. Some of the organisations I respect and listen to the most are listed below so you can assess for yourself how high they set their bars.
