For Those Who Demand The Best

The PT Space is Barwell's only private personal training facility.

Our number one aim here at The PT Space is to create an environment that is welcoming and accepting of everybody. Whether you've been training weekly for the past 5 years, or you've never stepped foot in a gym before, we're all one in the studio.

Our second aim is to educate. We don't exercise here, we train. Whether you want to lose weight, build muscle or just improve on your current fitness levels, every goal you come here with is outlined and put into a plan. We believe this is the best way to help you hit your goals and continue to succeed without the need for us in the future.

After getting to know each other during your free consultation, we'll put together a plan of action to help you reach your goals. Whether this be a fully tailored training plan, or help working on your nutrition, here at The PT Space there is everything you could need to hit your goals.

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.


In 2011 my life changed drastically as I began to struggle with my mental health. My social anxiety was through the roof and everyday tasks such as paying in a shop were too difficult for me to do. 

In 2013 I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. Even though getting a diagnosis was tough, it allowed me to begin to understand why I was feeling the way I was.


I picked up a copy of the magazine Mens Fitness in 2014 and decided to dedicate my time to bodybuilding and, over the last couple of years, powerbuilding. The gym gave me a new found confidence and I soon began to gain control over my depression and anxiety.


I passed my Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification in the summer of 2018 and became an online coach. To date I've worked with clients based all over the world, with clients currently based in the UK and America. The PT Space is my latest venture and one I am very excited to share with you all.

Personal Trainer & Online Coach

Health, fitness and overall wellbeing is something that everyone should be given the opportunity to achieve, regardless of their current size, shape, fitness or experience. It doesn’t matter. When we look to the future, we can put the past behind us. Changing or improving our lifestyle is not easy. It takes patience, dedication and hard work. So, what’s the best way to improve? With some friendly, effective help. That’s where I come in.


My names Jake. I’m a qualified personal trainer and online health and fitness coach. More importantly, I know what it takes to change your life. I’ve been there myself and believed it wasn’t possible. That’s why I am here now, to tell you it is. Forget about the preconceptions you have about health and fitness. There’s no judgement here, just a genuine interest in your health and the many ways in which we can change or improve it together.

I take a realistic and open approach with my clients that is built on trust and honesty. What we do together remains strictly confidential. My friendly and informative attitude will keep you motivated, encouraged and engaged throughout the whole process. It’s not just a healthy diet and regular exercise that helps us get to where we want to be. To achieve something great, it takes time. This, over all else,  is what I offer.
