The majority of my clients are over the age of forty and it often can be around that age when health problems such as hypertension, high cholesterol and joint problems occur.

Whether you are brand new to exercise or an experienced athlete you need to take extra care in later years to exercise safely as possible. I can guide you.

My background

I have an extensive background working with GP referrals, Cardiac Rehabilitation and more recently falls prevention clients. These clients were often referred to me for health reasons and were sometimes ambivalent towards their new activity.

Qualification badges.

Some of my qualifications (emblems).

Robert Adams (age 75) is a great example of this.

I’ve worked with Robert for nearly three years now and he came to me as a total beginner.  He has managed to keep exercising with remarkable consistency and it has paid off with his improved strength, muscle mass, stamina and core conditioning.

Robert much prefers outdoors sessions from my outdoor gym services.

John Armstone (age 76) has been working with me for over seven years now, but prefers the gym environment.  John has worked hard and enthusiastically over the years and in this time has significantly changed his body shape.  He loves the gym and has proved it’s never too late to start exercise.

Mike Cater (age 56) is by no means an enthusiast of exercise but he always gives it his all. He only recently tried his hand at running and can now run three miles in under 30 minutes. Ultimately proof that persistence truly pays off.

Mike Cater doesn't exactly enjoy exercise as many do. But he works hard at running and values what regular exercise does for him.

Conversely Carol Morrison (age 66) is no stranger to exercise and used to run marathons all around the world.  I’ve worked with Carol for over eight years now and only more recently have got her into the gym scene (she now enjoys it!) after years of outdoor sessions.  Her favourite part of her workout is boxing where she gets to lay in to her Personal Trainer.  It’s been great fun working alongside her!

Carol Morrison is an exercise enthusiast. Both outdoor and now within the gym setting.

Andy Newman (age 57) is another regular client who I’ve worked with both indoor and outdoors for a few years now. He is terrifically enthusiastic and in that time has turned himself to everything I’ve given him.He can row 2000m in 8.50.8s which is great going.

Some of the clients I work with have unfortunately suffered the consequences of falling over.  For these particular (often older) clients I’ve now been able to offer an in-home exercise regime that reinforces strength, balance, coordination and stamina to help allow these people to regain confidence.

My PSI (Postural Stability Instructor) specialist qualification has allowed me to construct workouts that improve agility, balance, strength and locomotion.

Mercia, 95
Eve, 85
Jenny, 86

Mercia (age 95), Jenny (age 86) and Eve (age 85) have all suffered falls but have benefited greatly from Falls Prevention home based exercises.

Not ALL of my clients are mature.  Many of them are under forty. Generally my younger clients differ in their goals they are trying to achieve.  Whilst older clients goals are typically trying to improve health, mobility and longevity.  Often younger clients are trying to improve their sports performance, body composition and body confidence.  Often these clients are competing in various sports.

My Background of learning includes a degree in Sports and Exercise science (B.Sc.hons), since 2000 and I’ve been a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) since 2005.

In addition later this year I plan to Study a Masters degree in Strength and conditioning to further update my knowledge.

Over the years these qualifications have allowed me the diversity to coach younger athletes for a vast array of goals and sports. A personal background in bodybuilding and Olympic weightlifting has also allowed first hand experience of the subject.

Craig Downs (age 30) has been working with me since September last year. In this time he’s worked hard on building a “base of strength” on major exercises such as squats, military press and deadlifts. In the time he’s also lost 5lb of fat, gained strength and muscle and shown a lot of true grit and determination. 


Craig is tenacious and always turns up early and before a day of work to do his workouts, usually twice a week.

Stephen Mann (age 40) is another great example of dedication.  When he first came to work with me a few years ago he weighed 115kg, and is now currently 95kg. He’s worked hard over the years and would like to compete in a bodybuilding show, given time.


Here Stephen is performing deadlifts off a raised platform. This makes it harder to maintain a “flat back” So far he’s managed a 157.5kg deadlift and is aiming for a 200kg top lift.

Talking of dedication, Marriane (age 30), who trains in her own “home gym”, is working hard to specifically improve her cycling performance. This “early bird” is truly dedicated as her workout starts at 5.45am.


Marriane works hard at improving her cycling and is a true morning person who starts working out at 5.45am

So far within less than a year she’s developed her core strength, power output, agility and upper body power. All of this has helped her pump up her wattage output on her bike, improving her overall performance.
