WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Richard is an amazingly knowledable, motivating and approachable Personal Trainer. I asked Richard to help me when I was really struggling, in a huge amount of pain and had lost a lot of mobility and strength through disability. Consultants couldn't help me anymore and I had no options left but to carry on living life like this permanently. At the time I only hoped that Richard would be able to help build my strength a bit to enable me to do some normal day to day activities but he really took the time to listen and understand my situation. Over 18 weeks my whole life has turned around. I have gained so much strength, my mobility and range of movement are both back to normal (when I was told they never would be), the pain has reduced significantly and I'm now stronger than I've ever been which is unbelievable. I honestly sometimes think where I am now is too good to be true compared to where I was only a few months ago. Richard makes sessions fun and having been quite scared before I started, I feel 100% safe and totally trust his judgement. I feel hugely overwhelmed by how he has helped me when top medical professionals couldn't and I don't think there will ever be enough words to explain how grateful I am to him. He is the most amazing PT and I can't recommend him highly enough.
Richard is an exceptional, inspirational PT, and I have lost 2 stone 11 pounds with him with a massive increase in overall strength, core stability and cardio fitness. I’ve never been so fit or strong. He takes the time to really understand your underlying objectives, helps you stick to them, and reviews and tweaks them as you go. He has an excellent gym facility with top notch kit and provides really helpful, practical diet advice. I wanted a technically very competent, quality-focused PT that would push me without shouting at me, and that’s exactly what I got. He offers a really authentic, genuine style interjected with lots of good humour. He knows when to talk me through the more challenging routines, and he gets and changes the tone perfectly during the sessions. Sessions with Richard are the centre point of my fitness and really inspire me. I’ve been on an incredible journey and achieved a level of fitness that I had honestly only dreamt about.
Richard is one of the most knowledgeable and professional personal trainers I have ever worked with. After having a baby, I was keen to return back to the gym and Richard helped me to safely get back on the fitness track and feel strong and confident again. He carefully tailors plans for each individual and pushes hard while being super nice! I highly recommend him.
I was keen to find a personal trainer not because I couldn't motivate myself to get to the gym but because it was never an effective workout. Usually I would row or sit on a bike with no real targets or purpose and I knew this wasn't really doing anything for my fitness. Then I found Richard who is passionate about what he does and motivated to work with me to achieve my goals. Now I'm stronger, fitter and can do lots of things in his sessions that I didn't think I could do! He pushes me but in a good way, a way that makes me feel proud of what I'm doing. Richard helpfully checks in to see how I'm getting on with my personal goals and always has great advice especially when I stray off and get distracted! Oh, and did I mention he is just a really great guy and fun to work with!
Richard is exactly what I need in a Personal Trainer, and he’s become an essential part of my personal programme to maintain good fitness and health. I find his approach highly motivating – he is always enthusiastic about my achievements but also encourages me to reach way beyond what I believe I am able to do. At the outset, Richard asked about my personal goals, and has structured my sessions around these, keeping regular notes on my performance. As a result, I’ve seen consistent progress in areas that are important to me. The sessions are always challenging, but Richard takes great care to accommodate any injuries I may have at any time. He also keeps the work interesting, using a variety of exercises to focus on both strength and conditioning. I can’t recommend him highly enough!
