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. As I’ve gotten older I have explored gymnastics, Olympic lifting and circuits for my own training. This lead me on to become a Personal trainer and a soft tissue therapist / sports massage therapist. This includes helping people with rehabilitation from injuries and surgery to get you back to doing the things that you love to do the most.
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 June 2021 I passed my Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy/Sports Massage course, which I am now offering at Falmouth Sports Hub and home visits. 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 evidence and discussions and considering what and what doesn’t work for each individual client. There is a reason for everyone to get up and be active, no matter how small that change is in their life. I believe that I can be the inspiration that helps them take that first, or next, step.
Where I work
I use Falmouth Sports Hub for personal training and for Soft Tissue Therapy as their gym has enough space and excellent equipment for any goals that need achieving. I use Ponsanooth Village Hall for my Wednesday classes and Gyllynvase beach for Kettlebell classes.
My ethos is to get people enjoying the physical side of their life, motivating and encouraging them mentally as well as physically.
I hope that you choose Shore 2 Shore to improve your physical – mental well-being or rehab journey.
Stay happy and healthy.
