For as long as I can remember sport has been a big part of my life. From a young age I played football every week for a number of different clubs, as well as attending trials for Leicester City FC. After picking up a copy of a bodybuilding magazine at the age of 14 my whole life changed, and my obsession with the world of lifting weights began.

My passion and love for the gym led me into the world of personal training and online coaching. I passed my Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification in 2018, and instantly started up my own online coaching business. Over time this took off, and to date I have had the pleasure of working with clients based all over the globe (America, Norway, Italy and Spain to name just a few!).

In December 2019 I opened the doors to The PT Space for the first time, with the mission to offer the highest quality personal training service possible to my local community.

Everything I do here is based around science, with my particular love being biomechanics. This simply means I combine my knowledge of anatomy and physics to put together programs that leave you looking and feeling good. Weight training shouldn't leave your joints crying out.

On my mission to offer the highest quality personal training service, I've found myself learning from some of the best in the industry. This includes Dr Jordan Shallow D.C. (founder of the Canadian S&C company Pre-Script), and The Muscle Mentors over here in the UK.

Quite simply, I want to work with you if you demand the best. Let's get to work.

who do we help?

In order to offer the highest quality service possible, the studio has been designed to cater to 3 specific groups of people. This allows us to be experts in what we do, and not be a master of none.
