To boost your fitness you need a personal trainer who can support you and your goals. I can help  people build aerobic capacity, tone up, build muscle, relieve pain and manage weight.

There are some things you need to help you on your fitness journey

You need a trainer with maturity and experience.

I’m 60 and have over 25 years of training experience in the fitness industry. I’ve been around the block so many times that I know what works and what is nonsense.

You need a trainer with skills.

Being told to jog on a treadmill and do a few push ups, or a bicep curl does not deliver the fitness you need. To become genuinely fit you need to build a skill set.

For over 20 years I’ve taught and coached “basic fitness”,  boxing, Olympic weightlifting, powerlifting, gymnastics and postural/therapeutic training.

You need a trainer who can actually teach.

Teaching is my passion.  Whilst I have all the normal fitness “instructor” qualifications, I also have proper adult teaching qualifications, including Level 5  qualification in English as a foreign language and I teach regular public classes and events.

You need a trainer who can help with an injury.

Apart from being a physical trainer, I’m also a  Level 5  sport massage therapist so I tend to spot things that need tweaking early so we can get them fixed. I can also “cup” and apply medical acupuncture and I’m also  “rock doc”.

I also spent a long time with a health department delivering GP referral sessions, so I can help if you have medical conditions as long as we can include your doctor/ support workers in the process.

You need a trainer who is bothered about people.

I’m genuinely bothered about people. The fact that I’m fairly old means that I know how crucial to physical and mental health having a supportive caring trainer is.  On top of my work in Fitness, I’m an advanced first aider with a leading first aid charity so I’m always volunteering at events which really means I’m always trying to help people.

You need a trainer who is useful in a crisis.

Too many trainers have little to no first aid ability. As an advanced first aider. I’m really useful to have around if things go wrong.

You need a trainer who is reasonably priced

I charge £40 an hour between 9 am and 5 pm and work between Forest gate E7, all through docklands and the city and up to Blackfriars.

Either we train in the park, your home (subject to covid regulations) or your gym (if they will let me join you). I can run sessions from gyms a few minutes from Blackfriars district line tube (EC4)  station or from Bethnal Green Tube station in E2 but they will charge you £15 more.

I work extensively online too!

If you want to organise to meet up and/or chat, or jump straight into a session, do drop me an email on
