Apart from being a personal trainer, I have many other passions.
I have been lucky enough to travel to some incredible parts of the world and learn from many other interesting cultures. From these experiences I have developed a deep belief in meditation and other relaxation techniques which have helped me live with a mild form of bipolar disorder called cyclothymia.
In addition to this, I manage my condition with fitness, but also use other techniques such as producing artwork. I am a very keen artist with a degree in fine art and have had exhibitions of my work.
I experienced yoga for the first time during my travels, and after the class I felt like I was floating down the street on our return to our lodgings. I now try to practice yoga every day whether it be a quick ten minutes or a good thirty minute session.
My long passion with fitness stems from being very active and playing football to a good standard when I was younger. I now enjoy running, spinning, boxing and weight training, in addition to my yoga and meditation, giving me an holistic perspective on health and fitness.
My other interests include seeing live music and live stand up comedy.
In May 2015 I got married to my beautiful wife Mel, and we have recently bought our first house together in Tilehurst, Reading.
