The ethos of my coaching is to provide an elite level service ensuring the best results possible for all of my clients whilst making the journey as fun and enjoyable as possible.
My passion, expertise, and experience revolve around getting stronger and coaching others to become stronger. My first taste of strength training came as a schoolboy whilst playing football for Hull City who utilized Strength and Conditioning Coaches to help us make the step up to the physical demands of Professional Football. As one of the smallest players on the team I needed to increase my strength to develop even more speed as well as the physical strength needed on the ball.
I quickly realised my passion for gaining strength and improving physical performance was greater than it was for anything else- this has remained a constant for the past 17 years of my life. I broadened my knowledge by completing a BSc (Hons) in Exercise Science and traveling countless hours each week to train and be coached by some of the best strength trainers in the world. As well as learning the science behind training I also learnt how to train optimally and safely for the best results possible.
As a competitive Powerlifter I became the lightest person in Britain to Benchpress 300kg taking the All Time Junior World Benchpress and Total Records, as well as the All Time European Senior Benchpress Record in 2008 as an equipped Powerlifter in the 90kg weight category.
More recently I moved into ‘raw/unequipped’ Powerlifting and in 2017 broke the All Time British Total Record lifting more than any British lifter in history in the 82.5kg weight category.
My passion for getting stronger myself is only matched by my passion for helping other people to get stronger. Over the past 10 years I have experience coaching all levels from complete novices, to International level Powerlifters, to athletes. Strength training isn’t only beneficial to people with goals of getting as strong as possible for competition, or athletes looking to improve performance, there are numerous benefits to a recreational trainer such as improving confidence, moving better, improving body composition, and strengthening areas often prone to injury such as the lower back.
As a coach I pride myself on my ability to teach correct exercise technique and get results. With correct technique it provides a far better base to develop strength whilst reducing the risk of injury which should be at the top of the list for anyone who trains- if you’re injured you can’t train or compete in your sport. By taking notes every session and structuring each session correctly I obtain clear results which can be tracked easily by both client and coach.
