Down to earth, technically precise, cheeky fun. I try to connect you with your body and challenge your mind. Mobility and movement patterns first, then step by step strength building and fat loss. Always asking questions about you, so you learn about your fitness psychology and master it.
30-50, male/female, that has suffered injuries or movement problems that are blocking their path to fitness success because they never fully recovered. Wants to fix the problem the right way but also wants to train hard and drop bodyfat!
The Result I'm Most Often Hired For:
Serious all over fitness life change - Fix an injury, retrain to a higher level, change habits and fix nutrition.
Favourite Gym Thing:
Wedges. Not the sandal type, small foam triangles that fit under your foot to magically correct whole body movement issues.
“Understanding the truth that plans do not always go to plan is key to making consistent progress. Discussing and jointly planning your lifestyle changes at a speed that will allow you to enjoy life makes sure you get it right, gradually, but permanently. It is important to use your close social groups and environmental ‘triggers’ to your advantage. The cycle of dieting and falling off the wagon is a lonely one. A positive spiral is much more fun.”
LONG TERM COACHING:
“Working with Men’s Health and Women’s Health magazines put me to the test coaching dramatic transformations for their cover stories in 6 or 10 weeks. A good reference point for the precision that is possible, but a huge wake up call to how much dedication that takes… it’s not the way a ‘normal’ client would train. Boosts are great, grab that enthusiasm with two hands, but always, always, remember the long term or you’re not serving your client with integrity. The market has evolved, there’s no excuse for doing 8-week transformations without serving people’s long-term goals. There’s no hiding place that says ‘That’s what they asked for, it’s their choice’… Because WE have to understand the affect of fitness marketing on peoples desires. WE have show responsibility to know that short-term is always part of long-term for our clients and serve that need too. For free.”

Strength and conditioning - I’m all about lifting weights with a combination of HIIT style moves to get that heart rate up, leaving you feeling like you’ve had a workout.
You’ll find that motivational and educational are the key words to describe my sessions. If you hate a workout, why would you look forward to it? My aim is to make sure your workout is something you look forward to every week, to make you feel good both physically and mentally. Although that’s not to say you won’t be challenged! My style has previously been described as “she’ll kick your butt but do it with a smile”.
Someone who has either fallen out of love with fitness and is searching for that motivation or someone who is wanting to learn how to lift and gain confidence to train by themselves. In short, if you’re looking to work out how to get working out into your schedule, give me a call!
Finding that motivation to train and continue to get stronger with every session (and that doesn’t necessarily mean looking like Arnold Schwarzenegger - unless you want to!)
Barbell. Firstly, there’s nothing more empowering than picking up a barbell. Secondly, you can load it up once you’ve nailed the compound lifts.

High energy. JC lights up a room with his big smile and positivity. Training wise he is experienced in strength and conditioning for sport, fat loss and muscle gain. Proper boxing coaching, TRX suspension training and on a more relaxing tip is a Reiki healer.
Someone that wants to lift their energy, who needs a trainer that can lift their spirit as much as their body. Or someone that needs a larger than life trainer just to keep up with them!
Result I'm most often hired for:
Bringing the enthusiasm back. The right balance between muscular and mental stimulation! All of my clients come to me with different needs and aspirations but I always start our journey by getting functional with their movements, then working strength, cardio and flexibility in balance with appropriate intensity in each area. Normally the journey includes nutrition change too and I help my clients to start making the right decisions."I have a passion for helping all souls reach their goals!"
Strength & conditioning – Empowering people through lifting weights and feeling strong both physically and mentally. You just can’t beat that post workout feeling so set yourself a challenge and I’ll help you smash it!
I also love yoga which is a big contrast but just as important. Flexibility and mobility work compliments resistance training and vice versa so I’m all about finding that balance!
Someone who is looking for inspiration to kick start their love for fitness. Through some guidance they’ll understand how to train for enjoyment, gain the motivation and the confidence to exercise by themselves in any given environment. Exercising should be fun so finding what really makes you want to out those workout clothes on and get moving is key.

High intensity circuit style training. I love to do boxing workouts and running mixed in with own body weight exercises. I think its really important to have a good base of cardio fitness and also to be able to use your own body weight before you get into lifting heavy weights. I love pull-ups, press-ups, squat jumps, hanging leg raises...
Anyone who is positive and enthusiastic! I have a mix of clients in regards to age and fitness level and love looking after all of them.
The result you are most often hired for:
Weight loss and toning. I do love training ladies to box for fitness too.
Favourite gym thing:
Monkey bars- pull ups and hanging leg raises are two of my favourite exercises. Amazing results and never gets easy!
