  • What skills & methods do you teach?
    The easy answer - calisthenics, hand balancing, mace, clubs, kettlebells, free weights, martial arts based drills, functional range conditioning and internal strength methods etc. The more honest answer - I teach a wide range of different skills drawn from my experience listed in the qualifications & experience section. I have found huge value in being able to utilise methods from varying disciplines to provide the best results possible for those I work with. Many get tunnel vision when learning any new skill or developing existing ones. However, we are all human & if your spine, shoulder or hip doesn't work THAT is what I will focus on improving alongside a bespoke training programme, based on in depth assessments. Repeating the skill & adding more volume IS NOT the best way to learn efficiently nor the best in regards to preventing injury. More is not better ... Better is better! We pick goals you are looking to attain, assess you and target weak points to help unlock trapped potential. My aim is to teach you how to utilise these concepts for life so that beyond our time working together you have a strong, resilient body that can attain incredible things for years to come.
  • Do I need access to a gym?
    No not at all, but I do cater for this as well. Over the years I have provided programmes for people who travel with zero equipment available to those who have access to incredible gyms with every piece of equipment imaginable available to them. This is all dealt with as part of your questionnaire & monthly check in. It is also important to note that I adapt your programme to your life - if you travel, move home, get a new job, have to reduce training time or any other circumstances change - this will be catered for so that you can continue to train & develop regardless of life pressures.
  • Can I arrange 1-2-1 in person coaching with you?
    Yes, many who partake in online coaching with me regularly meet up with me or fly over to train. If this is something that appeals to you please let me know or you are welcome to join me on one of my events abroad.
  • How much feedback will I receive?
    The level of feedback will depend on which programme option you decide to choose, many like to be left to their training, others like more help. I decided to create four options to cater for this. Prior to all video call check-ins I will encourage you to send as many tutorials as possible which we will go through. I will show how to improve on each & provide actionable home work to work on over the next phase & beyond. Following the call you will receive your new programme with; tutorials, links & a full in depth overview video to provide the most detailed coaching possible. Three of the four coaching options also include regular check-ins via WhatsApp this means that videos can be sent at any time for form checks & guidance to help you improve.
  • Am I too old to start?
    I have trained people from the ages of 8 to 78 over the last 15 years, you are never too old to make a difference. If you are here, changes can be made.
  • Do you offer nutrition advice?
    I am not a qualified nutritional therapist, nutrionist or dietician. However I can provide links to great information that I have utilised over the years & recommend good friends of mine that are incredibly knowledgable in this field at very reasonable prices.
  • Why are some plans more expensive than others?
    I have two main brackets - single discipline and multiple discipline and the plus brackets. The reason that these are different prices is due to a couple of reasons. 1) When designing a single discipline plan everything is driven towards a specific skill, this takes less time to program, is less complex and easier to implement. When designing a multiple discipline programme there is far more to comprehend. Programmes like this have to incorporate many factors to enable you to develop different skills at the same time. These programmes are also a lot longer in length, take far longer to design and are more complex. 2) The plus brackets basically bolt on a number of expensive additions at a low price. These extras provide more detail but also provide you the option to use the non-plus option partake in a detailed fitness programme at a cost effective price. The plus programmes also include more frequent check-ins (4 weekly instead of 6 weekly). All of these programmes are designed to enable you to achieve great results regardless what option you choose.
  • Cancellation Policy
    I generally request that we work together for at least 90 days ... this gives us the opportunity to; run full assessments, install great habits, make changes and provide results that last far beyond our time together. If you need to cancel for any reason - drop me a message and I will action this on the day of request, you will not be billed for any further payments.
