My coaching philosophy is to make fitness training effective and fun so that my clients will enjoy the journey. Then we can both celebrate their achievements together. Honestly there is no better feeling for me than helping my clients to achieve their goals and see their happy faces. Plus, being a people person, I always love a good chat ;-)

About Me

Being a proud Welsh man and living only 60 seconds away from the famous Stradey Park home of the Llanelli Scarlets I discovered a passion for rugby from a very young age. I played rugby for a number of years but sustained a serious injury during my youth which ended my playing days. Leaving rugby behind, I had to find a new way to stay fit and strong, so I switched my focus to weights and cardiovascular training. Since then I have never looked back!

Being fit and healthy allows me to pass on the knowledge that I have learned to others, to help them enjoy all the amazing things the body can do. It also makes me smile every day and keeps me feeling young! I love meeting new people from all walks of life and learning new cultures. After running a successful Personal Training business for several years back in Wales, I had the opportunity to combine two of my biggest passions – fitness and wellness, and travelling. This has led me to where I am today.
