I got into sports at a young age, playing rugby from aged 13; at school I played every available sport. When I left school I kept on playing rugby and I also took up Thai boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). I joined the Marines in 2006; this gave me discipline, a mental focus and balance in my life between work and training. More recently I have taken up gymnastics, Olympic lifting and circuits for my own training.
In August 2019 I passed my Level 3 Sports Massage course, which I am now offering in Hayle, Falmouth and for home visits. For more information, and to find out if I can work with you, just drop me an e-mail.
All of the above led me to what I do now, and hand on heart I LOVE MY JOB! There is nothing I enjoy more than working with people at every level, whether in classes or personal training. I can go from working with someone new to exercise who wants to feel better about themselves, to people who want to be healthier for their kids. I can also help you to manage weight loss, putting weight on (yes, some people want to do that), “Ironman” training, running, weight-lifting; the list goes on and on.
My aim is to devise a unique programme for each client, with a focus on what you want to achieve. It’s easy to get someone to warm up, breathe hard, then stretch. My approach is first, to establish your goals, because no two people have the same aims, and, based on that, I will tailor a programme for you.
I work in the Falmouth, Truro and Hayle areas. If the weather is dry I will try and get you outside, unless it is specific gym work that you want or need. I use village halls, studios, and local gyms.
I qualified as a gym instructor in April 2013 and as a personal trainer in 2014, starting Shore 2 Shore Fitness in June 2014. In 2019 I qualified as a sports masseuse, taking my career further into the remedial route, which I’ve chosen to currently focus on. I truly believe in the saying ‘knowledge is power’, and I aim to keep learning in this industry, by looking at the latest trends and considering what works and what doesn’t. There is a reason for everyone to get up and be active, no matter how small that change is in their life, and I believe I can be the inspiration that helps them take that first, or next, step.
My ethos is to get people enjoying the physical side of their life again, motivating and encouraging them mentally as well as physically.
I hope that you choose Shore 2 Shore Fitness to improve your physical and mental well-being.
Stay happy and healthy.
