The Body Development Team
I’ve been working in the fitness industry in some shape or form since 1990.
I’ve helped thousands of clients in that time to be fitter, slimmer, stronger, faster, more confident and in many cases achieve what they initially felt would be impossible for them.
I’ve also coached various athletes to compete at the highest level in amateur and professional sports such as boxing, MMA, athletics, rugby, football, golf, and winter sports.
My focus is on coaching my clients how to do what they want as effectively and efficiently as possible, and I have nearly 30 years of experience to help with that.
Since 2008 I’ve also been successfully mentoring other personal trainers, with them travelling from all over the UK, flying in from Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore, and the States to visit our little gym in Bath.
I take pride in my work and live by the words “Challenge what you think you know daily”.

With over 20 years of experience as a personal trainer and group exercise coach, I think its fair to say that I absolutely love what I do. I train hard, work hard and practice what I preach. I love to run and have completed numerous half marathons over the last 20 years. Now use my running to raise money for charities close to my heart.
At BD I work on developing our wide range of classes for our regular members and now our senior members, plus I have numerous personal training clients, some of which I have trained for almost 10 years now.
I have studied constantly throughout my career and attended numerous courses at the Poliquin Institute in the US, taken the Biosignature course more than 8 times and interned semi privately with the late Charles Poliquin.
My on going education on our Mentorship Programme has taken, and continues to take both my skills to another level altogether.

My goal has always been to help make a difference to people’s wellbeing, working at Body Development allows me to do just that.
