I have over twenty five years’ experience in the fitness industry and for seventeen years I managed fitness clubs in the UK and Ireland. I qualified as a fitness instructor in 1991 (NCEF) completing my NCEF Level 2 Advanced Resistance Training in 1993.

In June 2016 I completed the Marmotte climbing Col du Glandon, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier and Aple D’Huez over 5000m in 11 hours.In June 2017 I cycled from Banff in Canada to Antelope Wells New Mexico a total distance of 4500k in 33 days. This was a completely self supported off road mountain bike route through the Rocky Mountains climbing 200,000 feet equivalent to climbing Mount Everest 7 times.
For the past twenty years I have specialized in functional training and injury rehabilitation. During this time I have studied every aspect of training and have developed a very unique and effective method of training which has given exceptional results in all areas health and fitness. Having this level of understanding of anatomy, physiology and human movement, has allowed me a unique insight into injury prevention and rehabilitation.
