I’ve been a personal trainer for 7 years now and have loved every minute of it.
I’m a level 3 trainer PT qualified in nutrition, spin, box fit and circuit training which I like to incorporate into my training.
Naturally I want to see all my clients working hard but at the same time, I like for them to enjoy the sessions and have a laugh.
I’m a very sporty person and play a lot of football and occasionally boxing.
I enjoy taking part in many events with my clients such as 10ks, Tough Mudder, Spartan races etc. However, most of all I enjoy seeing my clients accomplish their goals at these events.
My biggest achievement as a trainer is helping my best friend lose 5 stone in weight. I was a very proud trainer and friend.
My biggest life achievement is my two beautiful daughters who make me smile every day (Bit cheesy, but true.)
With my wide-ranging qualifications, along with my 7 years as a successful self employed PT and over 10 years experience in gym based training, this gives me a good knowledge and practical base to help coach clients to their goals in a safe and efficient manner.
I like to use common sense and a no-nonsense approach when it comes to training and nutritional guidance. I have a true passion for health, training and nutrition. Even though I have many qualifications, I read up on many relevant topics and new research on a weekly basis in order to stay up to date to give my clients the best care I possibly can.
I love to challenge myself with a wide variety of fitness and sporting activities, this helps to further motivate my clients by showing them that I follow the exact same advice I give them. It can inspire them by my example, if they stick to my advice they can reach their goals.
For example, I have completed Tough Mudder and the much more difficult Spartan super race. These are both obstacle courses set over rough terrain the Spartan race being over a half marathon distance. I also challenged myself to drop my body fat to low levels and I’m delighted to say I achieved my goal. I have climbed mountains in Scotland including the highest Ben Nevis and an even higher mountain in New Zealand while I was travelling there.
Sports that I have a keen interest in are; Football, Cycling, Tennis, Badminton, Rugby, Golf, Skiing, Weight/Olympic lifting, Powerlifting, Strongman, Swimming, Boxing, Athletics and Formula 1.
In 2014, I was very lucky to able to travel for four months to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and North Vietnam. This opened me up to experience different people and cultures.
Back To The 90’s!!!
I Started teaching in the fitness industry in 1995, starting with General ETM classes & over the years adding Reebok Step, Schwinn Spin, Boxercise, Body Combat, Body Pump, Cardiac Rehab, Metafit & 2 boys! Since 1997 Body Pump always my fav but, more recently Metafit taking that top spot, love the buzz after a Metafit class & more so the atmosphere & chat among participants & the good news stories about inch loss & even PB’s for races.
After working in gyms & fitness centres full time over an 18 year period I went back to work full time 4 years ago but just couldn’t give up my classes & still jumping about 5 days of 7!!
Look forward to seeing you at Martyn Paul Fitness Centre soon
I have been working in the fitness industry for the last 5 years but developed my passion in health and fitness from a very young age.
I started judo at the age of 11 and fell in love with a varied range of sport and health and fitness. Aged 17 I suffered a really bad shoulder injury, which meant I was unable to train for a long time, in this period I gained a lot of weight up to 118kgs. In Jan of 2016 I started my weight loss journey and lost as much 40kgs in body weight. Losing this amount of weight I learnt a few things along the way tips tricks and more importantly the best mind set to be in to achieve your goals.
Taking part in judo has taught me a discipline that I try to transfer to my clients. I have been lucky to see and work with many different people with a range of challenges.
I go above and beyond to make sure my clients receive my full support whenever they need it. Getting to grasps with training and nutrition isn’t easy and I try to get involved with all aspects of my clients life to make sure they achieve their goals.
I love a challenge so making my clients realise that nothing is impossible and that no goal is out of reach. Watching them do this is so rewarding. I showed them this by running 2 marathons a half iron man and a brutal 15 mile hilly trail run. I am not the lightest of guys and made them realise that no matter what age shape or size you are you can do anything.
I have been very lucky to travel the world and meet some very interesting people and learnt a lot of information.
I'm an enthusiastic individual with a passion for working in the health and fitness industry. I have been working as a personal trainer for 2 years
As a trainer I measure strengths and weaknesses with a fitness assessment, educate clients through correct techniques, new exercises as well as helping them improve their lifestyle and nutrition. With my experience as a personal trainer, I will ensure that I get you the results that you’ve been striving for a long time.
I like to make sure that my clients leave the session feeling like they’ve learned something different every time and make sure they’ve worked their hardest to full potential.
If your goals are to improve you’re general fitness, get toned, lose weight, gain strength, building muscle mass or training for a sporting event, I will create and provide fun and engaging fitness sessions tailored to meet your individual needs with 1 to 1 or partner personal training sessions.
