I started working with Brian a couple of months ago and have noticed a huge change – both physically and mentally. In the gym I feel much more motivated and now have the belief that I can manage so much more than I could do before. The training sessions are challenging but I find myself managing more and more each week.

Also a few years ago I broke my upper arm in a skiing accident and Brian was great in helping me through rehab and back to full fitness. He always has a really positive attitude towards his personal Training and it's something that even after fifteen years I always look forward to."

"After shattering my humerus and cracking six ribs I could not pick up a pen without grimacing.

Four months later I am 99% functional and expect, within another two months, to be in the best shape of my life.

I am, to say at least, amazed.

Brian worked a plan out for me that is strict and evolving. He never lets me down in our 1:1 seven am sessions. His range of knowledge is astonishing and he continually strives to extend and impart this.

He is also very a very funny man, which all adds to a great training environment.

I look on him as one of my best friends and will continue our sessions for as long as I am standing. I would commend him wholeheartedly and enthusiastically.

People like Brian make the world a better place.”


“As an overweight, asthmatic teenager I was unfit and unhappy. Brian helped to transform both my fitness and my outlook. Brian is a genuine, dedicated and extremely knowledgeable trainer who helped me lose weight and gain a new understanding of health and fitness. With the help of Brian’s vast experience and infectious enthusiasm I was able to lose more than 3 stone in the space of 2 years. His patience and positivity has inspired me to pursue a career in the fitness industry and I would recommend him whole heartedly. Brian makes training enjoyable and his diverse range of skills means that you are guaranteed to find a training style that suits you. Brian is not only the most highly qualified trainer that I have worked with, he has become a true friend and I am much better off for having got to know him.”

Otto Thoresen

"I have been seeing Brian on a personal and weekly basis for about 4 months as I was in severe pain due to sciatica and a hip pain flare up. Due to his informed regime, which took cognisance of my underlying problems, I have progressed a hundred fold and can do every day things with ease and without pain that I haven’t been able to do for ages. I have also improved my more general fitness and would recommend Brian to anyone trying to improve their general wellbeing or like me improve a quite severe problem."

Virginia Graham


'Our daughter is a long standing client of Brian, and she introduced us to him at the beginning of the summer and we have not looked back since. I had a double hip replacement in March 2014 and also my husband has a heart condition.

Brian developed a programme to suit both our needs and to suit our fitness levels and we are delighted with the results.

Brian is a pleasant and highly knowledgeable and fun person to work with.

We look forward to working with him for many more years.

We have no hesitation in giving the highest of recommendations.'
