I'm available for online or outdoor training within St. Albans or further a field if online. I have 10 years years experience working in the industry working with a wide range of clients.
I'm currently employed with the NHS full-time as a clinical exercise specialist working with individuals post cardiac event e. g. heart attack. I work as part of a multi disciplinary team (nurses, psychologists and dieticians) and my role is to provide personalised exercise programmes for these individuals to promote their recovery and reduce their risk of further events.
These individuals are very complex and have a host of pre-existing medical conditions I need to cater when designing programmes such as lung disease, stroke, cancer and debilitating joint or muscle pains. These patients are very limited and designing a programme to improve their exercise capacity to achieve their fitness goal or be able to carry out activities of daily living can be challenging. For this reason I spent the last 10 years completing professional education courses to better understand and cater for these individuals.
I can offer bespoke clinical programmes covering exercise, nutrition support, and psychological guidance to aid in your recovery from surgery or to increase your strength prior to surgery.
The above caters for secondary prevention to aid individuals in their recovery from a medical event but I can also aid individuals in primary prevention (preventing a medical event). If you have any of the conditions I can offer tailored programmes to suit your needs:
High Blood Pressure
Diabetes (diagnosed or at risk)
Joint or muscular pains

My circumstances changed due to covid/Lockdown#2 but Shane was great over the phone and was keen to determine a good match between my needs and his interests as a professional. When the time is right I will definitely be getting back in touch with him. More...
