I offer an all-inclusive 1-2-1 personal training service that can encompasses anything necessary within my scope of practice that’s relevant to you and your goals. You have my full skill set at your disposal.
During an initial consultation I’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of your circumstances via subjective and objective assessment. Once I have all the relevant information I need, I can get to work on devising the best plan of action moving forward. This will include goal setting, individualised programming, accountability and nutrition support.
Broadly speaking, you can classify most goals into 3 categories. Health, performance and aesthetics. You may of course have multiple goals and there is a lot of crossover between these three areas. Read on to find out more about what I can help you with.

Health is the foundation upon which all other goals are built. Without health, longevity and well-being, progress will be hindered. Therefore, prioritising both your mental and physical health is the first port of call.
Ensuring the relevant prerequisites are in place, enables more progress to be made further down the road. Physically, the main area of concern is making sure your body is functioning well and ready for what’s to come. Mentally, developing a strong mindset is key to long term sustainable behaviour change.
Joint health is of particular importance. Adequate mobility allows for more efficient and effective exercise selection and therefore provides more precise methods of stimulating the desired muscles.
Likewise, recovery is the cornerstone to attaining your goals in the most efficient manner possible and is just as important as training itself. If your recovery is on point (i.e. sufficient sleep, quality nutrition and stress management), it will only allow you to train harder and see results quicker.

HEALTH IS THE FOUNDATION UPON WHICH ALL OTHER GOALS ARE BUILT
Whether you’re an athlete looking to improve sports performance or an average gym goer who just wants to focus on getting stronger and fitter, I’ve got you covered.
Performance based goals allow you to explore what your body is capable of and view it as an instrument, not just an ornament. You can work on multiple components of fitness simultaneously or emphasise certain physical qualities to achieve a specific outcome.
If you’re a fitness fanatic, the goal is to become a well-rounded human and improve mobility, strength, conditioning and skill acquisition.
If you’re into strength sports (Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, Strongman, CrossFit etc), I can help you fill in the gaps to become as strong as possible.
If you’re an athlete, the aim is to develop your movement capacity for performance enhancement and injury mitigation. The primary training objective is to maximise transfer to your sport.

If you’re goals revolve around changing the way you look, the solution resides in altering your body composition. Ultimately, all this means is changing the proportion of muscle and fat mass.
Why fat loss as opposed to weight loss? The aim is to preserve muscle mass to create a more ‘toned’ look. This is achieved through the combination of resistance training and manipulating nutrition and energy expenditure.
When it comes to gaining muscle, the strategies remain similar but energy intake goes up, and expenditure comes down. Training needs to be progressive in order to stimulate growth. Typically, both fat loss and muscle gain phases will be utilised to achieved the desired aesthetic.
The vitality of a healthy body image and self-perception cannot be downplayed. You can go through a significant physical change, but still struggle psychologically. I can provide support to improve body confidence and overcome societal pressure to look a certain way.

Nutrition can be a contentious topic that's rife with misinformation. My job is to help you cut through the BS and stick to sound scientific principles. You can simplify nutrition into it's quantity and quality.
When looking to change your body composition, quantifying your intake will give you the biggest bang for your buck and the quality of nutrition can be refined over time.
The overall aim is to introduce structure, form new habits and implement gradual behaviour change. If you try and change everything at once, adherence will likely become an issue. Keeping in food you enjoy makes the process sustainable. Principles + Preferences = Progress.
If health and performance are a priority, ensuring your intake consists of nutrient dense foods and adequate hydration is maintained will optimise the way your body functions.
Nutrition is also heavily related to body image and mental health. That’s why improving your relationship with food and debunking nutrition myths is high on the agenda.

Niggles, aches and pains can become a burden on your training. Sports massage can aid in rectifying these issues to ensure you can perform at your best.
Prior to treatment an in-depth assessment will enable potential causes of the issue to be identified. It’s not within my scope of practice to diagnose specific injuries, but I am able to help connect the dots and improve the movement dysfunction that could have contributed to the problem arising in the first place.
Now, massage in isolation won’t ‘fix’ the problem, but it can help create an ideal environment for change and open a window of opportunity to improve movement.
Although temporary, pain relief and desensitation of the area in question can alleviate symptoms so we can get to work on mobilising or strengthening certain joints and muscles.
As well as treatment, I can provide education on self-massage techniques and prescribe mobility drills and corrective exercise as homework between visits.
