Clients worked with:

Although I enjoy extreme tests of body and mind, the clients with which I work cover a diverse range. I have in-person and online clients with whom I work individually, delivering a range of services from programming and coaching, to nutrition support and education. I have people aged between their early 20s, and their 70s, and everywhere in between. Some have lofty athletic goals - such as Commonwealth Games qualification - whereas others are just looking to retain physical independence. I also coach groups, both in commercial CrossFit® classes, and on behalf of the British Army, in line with their Army Physical Training System (APTS).

About me:

I served for 13 years in the Regular Army, and have now completed 8 with the Army Reserve, for a total of 21 years of service. I have deployed operationally to Iraq twice, and Afghanistan, and have worked in a number of training roles with recruits, potential officers, regular soldiers, and those seeking promotion.

I first found CrossFit in 2011 as a grossly overweight, heavy smoking junk-food lover and, after using it to transform my own health, have spent my time since trying to help as many people as possible with the methodology, and all of the things that I have found stem from it. This is predominantly achieved through coaching individuals and groups, however also includes seminars for both athletes and other coaches, and taking on my own challenges in an attempt to demonstrate what is possible.
