Mobile personal trainer, with a passion for helping clients achieve their goals, whether that be to be able to move more and play with the grandchildren to completing a marathon or sportive and everything in between.
Being mobile means no need for you to waste time battling traffic getting to the gym, finding the piece of equipment you want is broken or busy and then not being sure where to go next, I bring everything needed, have the plan and help you get more from yourself than you normally would.
As with many people approaching their 40th birthday it became clear that I had to make some important decisions. My life so far had been spent eating, drinking, avoiding exercise as well as sitting either at my desk or in my car. I was approaching 15 stones, had weekly debilitating back issues, did not sleep and had low energy levels. I had made some half-hearted attempts to get fit in the past including various gym memberships, buying a bike and obligatory state of the art running shoes. All had quickly come to nothing both due to my lack of commitment, boredom and results. Time to try something different. I contacted several personal trainers.... Three things differentiated Andrew from the other trainers I engaged. Firstly he spent time considering my specific aims and constructed a training plan specifically for me. Secondly, we could train in the way I preferred and on my terms – as an example, I wanted to train at home the idea being that I could avoid the “challenge” of getting up and travelling to the gym and I also needed something to fit around my unpredictable schedule. Surprisingly many others were not willing to consider this. Finally, Andrew was clearly more than just about physical exercise having excellent knowledge of nutrition and physiology. After about 6 months of working with Andrew I had clearly lost weight and as a result of focusing on core-strength my back issues had almost gone. After about 1 year I had hit my target weight of 11.5 stones and friends and colleagues had started to talk about a “physical transformation”. I also had better mussel definition, stamina and agility. 5 years on I am still a stable 11.5 stones, do not suffer back pain, run regular fast 10k’s and even now people comment about how much I have changed. Throughout all this time Andrew has always maintained a plan for me that has helped me achieve my targets, pushed me slightly further than I would have done but been considerate of my constraints such as the back problems I had. Andrew has been 100% reliable and incredibly flexible with regard my frequently changing schedule. Despite starting my fitness campaign over 5-years ago now, working with Andrew continues to be a core component. Andrew still pushes me 10% more than I would push myself, keeps my exercise regime varied and has helped make “looking after yourself” be a core aspect not only of my life but my families too. I am also now faster than Andrew over 5k – one area he needs to improve. I would highly recommend using a personal trainer and specifically Andrew has been excellent.
