what i do

Dynamic Fitness Training Founder

“I always make my sessions enjoyable and varied to keep you and your body guessing, as I find this is the best way to get results and leave you feeling fitter, healthier and happier.”


A little about me…..

I’ve been personal training for over 12 years now, which is about the same length of time that I’ve been living in Muswell Hill, north London.


A quick background

I grew up in Hertfordshire, went to University in Portsmouth where I gained a Degree in Sport Science. I went on to work at two professional football clubs: Watford FC and West Ham United FC (who just happens to be the team I support!) within their Sport Science departments. Then I chose to pursue a career as a Personal Trainer.


Personal fitness facts

  • I have run 6 marathons: Dublin, Edinburgh, Belgrade, Rotterdam, Manchester and Frankfurt
  • My marathon personal best is 3 hours 16 minutes.
  • My dream is to one day do an Ironman triathlon


Why choose me?

Results: The first reason is that I will support you in any way you need in order to achieve your results. PT sessions may last an hour but you get support, workouts, guidance and I’m always available for any queries.

Experience: In addition to personal training, I also have taught the next generation of PTs for a number of years. My understanding of the process of training, the human body plus human psychology has meant that I impart this knowledge and experience onto others.

Practice what I preach: As you can see from my fitness facts, I train for events and achieve successful outcomes. Knowing the sacrifice that I need to take for this, allows me to structure your training to take into account all of your situations. Family, work, holidays etc. can all be factored in. I know how it can be done which means I can make it happen for you.
