Strength Coach

A little cliché, but the gym has been my saviour over the years.

I started going to the gym when I was 15 years old, in order to build muscle after having been seriously ill. I've always been interested in the science behind the gym ever since I started training, which is how I ended up at Chichester University studying Sports and Exercise Science and then going on to do a masters in Strength and Conditioning. At first my training was focused on getting strong for the sports I played (American football and rugby). But, as I progressed into my masters, I fell in love with training which led me to find powerlifting. I love the science around it and I am still as excited to read about new literature as I was when I first started.

My training and coaching styles heavily revolves around movement efficiency. This is in order to focus on longevity via keeping the athlete healthy and enjoying training at all times.
