Tom has always had a strong passion for all things sport, health, and fitness. From an early age, he tried his hand at everything, including football, athletics, swimming, and rugby, to name a few. This developed through school, leading him to study Sport and Exercise Science at university, where he specialised in human anatomy and physiology and the effects exercise has on the body.

Wishing to combine his university studies with his passion for working with others, Tom completed his Gym Instructor and Personal Training qualifications. Tom enjoys working together with clients to help them unlock their potential, overcome challenges, and become the best version of themselves that they can be. Whether it is teaching a new client the basics of the gym, or training elite athletes in a strength and conditioning environment, Tom feels that a combination of communication, team-work and dedication can achieve most goals.

Always striving to push himself and increase his knowledge in the industry, Tom completed his BACPR Level 4 Cardiac Exercise Instructor, allowing him to help clinical populations with exercise prescription. It was during this time that he fell in love with clinical exercise prescription, and aiding clients that need specific clinical needs, goals, and requirements. Tom feels that helping people get back to fitness after suffering health problems is as much of an achievement as hitting a bench press personal best or 5k best time.

Continuing from this, Tom has worked with GP referral clients in both a 1-2-1 and group exercise setting. Working together to achieve a common goal, facing a variety of barriers and physical conditions is the way he loves to work. Being able to understand specific needs, work through obstacles in the most effective ways for the clients and continuously developing the health, wellbeing and confidence of clients is a particular strength of his. From improving the range of motion at specific joints, to increasing cardiovascular fitness to improve the quality of daily functional activities – no matter the aim, if it is important to the client, it is important to Tom.

Tom combines high energy and enthusiasm with theoretical knowledge to provide fun, valuable, and thorough sessions that will support clients on their individual journeys.
