I want to help you discover what you’re capable of, how good being active makes you feel and that exercise should fun and something you look forward to.
A back problem in 1997 inspired me to focus on getting fit so that I wouldn’t go through life being affected by it like my Mum did. While I was off work, I entered the London Marathon. I had always wanted to run it and didn’t believe I was fit enough to do it but I needed the challenge.
Crossing the finish line that day changed my life. It gave me an enormous sense of achievement that I had never experienced before and it gave me the desire to help others go and achieve their big goals. If I can do it, anyone can. A year later, I quit my job as a Pizza Chef and began a training course to become a Personal Trainer.
I want to inspire more people to go after the things they dream of but aren’t sure are possible for them right now so that they can discover what they’re truly capable of and get fit and lose weight happen along the way. I see my role as a guide and helping people along their journey, providing them with the tools and support rather than tell people directly what to do.
My ethos to working with clients is based around the following principles:
What My Clients Say
I had extensive surgery around my knee which included my ACL being replaced. After physio, I now needed to strengthen my leg. As well as helping me physically, Steve was very good at working through my mental blocks when I wasn’t sure my knee could take some of the exercises. This allowed me to see that my knee was capable of far more than my mind thought. I am now back training at Karate and preparing for a 100km walk. My knee feels great and my leg is continuing to get stronger. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve
I started working with Steve primarily to lose weight but also to be able to continue playing fives when I turned 50. I had a back problem and so was going to be a challenge. I’m now 59, I’ve lost some weight, have very few issues with my back and most importantly, I’m still playing fives. I’m scoring more goals than I did when I started and feel fitter than many of the guys half my age! Even the good players are paying compliments! Good job!
I was struggling with a knee injury that stopped me from running and Steve looked at how I moved then gave me some exercises to practice. What hugely helped was having Steve listen to my feedback and squash my worries. I overthink a lot and having him coach me through and reassure me was perfect. Now I can run without any issues. Thank you!!
Before coming to see Steve, I was feeling at one of my lowest points. I was low in confidence and unhappy with how I looked. I gained a whole new perspective and enjoyed seeing how I could do things I never thought I could. I now believe in myself more and my confidence has grown. I’m now wearing outfits I never thought I’d get into and feel really happy
Thank you for all your running advice! I did not think it could happen when you said I would suddenly take off and start passing people effortlessly and it happened all the time today! Also my back pain was virtually non-existent thanks to the exercises you gave to me
