About Me


I have always been a keen sportsman, representing Stafford in athletics, football, rugby and swimming. However, I never quite had the motivation to train frequently enough to reach the levels I could have attained.

I was always a skinny kid, wanting to gain some strength and muscle as I knew it would help my general performance during exercise, as well as improving my physique. I embarked on a Sports and Exercise Science course at Stafford College and trained at their on-site gym, often with another personal trainer. This is where my interest in this lifestyle really picked up momentum. I then continued this course at degree level and it was there at Liverpool John Moores University where I was captivated by the science of a healthy body – the ins and outs of muscle and fat metabolism.

Once I completed my degree, I decided to get some real experience within the industry. I felt the best way to do this was to dive into the deep end, outside of my comfort zone.

So, I moved to Auckland, New Zealand, where I lived for 9 months working as a personal trainer in the second most populated gym in the country. I helped many people to reach their goals over this time period, either through sharing nutritional information and handy tips or by giving them the support they need to maintain an effective exercise regime.

The gym’s mission statement was ‘We strive to make New Zealand the healthiest nation in the world’. I did everything I could to bring that attitude back to Stafford in 2017. Three years later and I now hold the General Manager position at i-Motion Gym and together with my staff, we are building health into the local community.
