Professional Background

GetAttachmentThumbnail (10).jpg


Waking up after a good nights sleep feeling energised, mentally alert and confident about the day ahead.  You look in the mirror and are pleased with what you see. Your muscles feel tighter and warmly tingle from your last work-out. You feel great and are looking forward to tonight's training session and re-living the 'achievement buzz' you now enjoy after pushing your body. No more aches or pains or shortness of breath as you begin another busy day.

This is now how I feel every morning and my mission has become to help others improve their health and fitness and live fully fulfilled lives.

My Unique Advantages




My life experience and professional background means I better understand the pressures you are likely to be facing.  I  also enjoy an intellectual discussion about the issues of our time - if that helps you get through your work out!



I understand the more mature body and how to overcome the unique challenges it presents. I strongly believe though that age is no barrier - it's mental attitude and fortitide that counts.


Trusted Relationship

Passionate about delivering exceptional service.  I understand the importance of first building trust to get maximum results, this is why I offer a free fitness consultation before working with new clients.

North Hampshire

"Martin is a legend. Without him I could not call myself an IronMan. His training plan and commitment turned disappointment at my first attempt to success at my second.  My extra confidence has seen me enter many more crazy endurance events since and Martin is to thank for my achievements"

My motivation and beliefs

cancer research personal best personal trainer

It started with my mum....


At school P.E was my least favourite lesson, not a natural sportsman, academic pursuits were my strength.


The year 2000 and the diagnosis of my mum with cancer became a pivotal moment and the start of my health and fitness obsession.



My coping strategy was to throw myself into fundraising for Cancer Research UK.  I signed up for their Trek Peru event.  With sponsors relying on me to complete the trek I commited to a programme of training.


I quickly got the fitness bug and relished the amazing feeling and positive changes it brings. In subsequent years I have undertaken more outlandish charity challenges. The spirit of my dear mum and raising money for this worthy cause have been my powerful belief that continues to motivate me.
