My Mission

I’m on a mission to help more people over 50 lead more active and healthy lives, do more of the things they love, free from stiffness or pain, feel inspired to do things they never thought they could and keep doing them for as long as they possibly can.

Since turning 50 in 2020, I’ve had the desire to go do things I’ve never done before and discover what I’m capable of and want to help you do the same.

I see 50 as the beginning of a new chapter in our lives, where we can put ourselves first, prioritise our health and wellbeing so that we can improve the quality of our lives and perform at our best as we grow older. Becoming fitter, losing weight, building strength etc are byproducts of this journey.

I see this as a journey rather than a pursuit of a single goal. We’ve all been there where we’ve achieved a goal, stopped and ended up losing everything we’ve just gained. Let’s change the way we live so that we can do all the things we love, want to do more and have fun along the way.

People

I help over 50s who:

  • Feel heavy and unfit and want to feel fitter, stronger and lose some weight
  • Want to do something for themselves
  • Have back pain or other aches and pains and want to exercise safely 
  • Feel their age and want to feel the way exercise used to make them feel

If any of these sound like you then I can help!

I bring my sessions to you, either through home visits or by Zoom so I can help you wherever you are in the world.

I design my coaching exclusively around you, your goals, what you need and I’m here to guide and support you every step of the way.

My Approach

I believe the way to achieve our goals is through aiming for optimal health rather than by focusing solely on diet or exercise.

My coaching programs are built around you and the following 4 pillars – Believe, Nourish, Move and Rest.

As you’ll see in the image, it’s shaped like a jigsaw. That’s because I believe that all 4 pieces must come together in harmony, like a jigsaw, for you to reach optimal health and achieve all the things you desire. When one is out of sync, your goals become harder to achieve.

When you focus on you, and focus on good health, everything becomes possible.

I’m here to help you with it all.

My Journey

My journey in fitness began when my back went into spasm when I was 26, was signed off work and prescribed strong painkillers.

I decided I needed to take action on my health and fitness and so entered the ballot for the London Marathon, as you do, and got in first time!

Crossing the finish line changed my life. I felt an amazing sense of accomplishment and felt if I can do this, anyone can so I quit my job as a Pizza Chef and trained to become a Personal Trainer.

Learning about movement and mobility training helped me find a solution to my back problem and went from having spasms every 3 or 4 months to the odd twinge in the last 10 years.

I now feel privileged to be able people overcome their aches and pains and also enable them to accomplish things they didn’t think were possible for them.

Meet Steve

Outside of work, I love running early in the morning to see the sunrise, enjoy the wonderful views around Perth and help set me up for the day.

I love a good coffee and can often be found in one of Perth’s coffee shops, or “the coffice” as I like to call them!

I’m also the Event Director at Perth parkrun and Race Director at the Perth 10k race. 

Come along and say hello :-)
