Founded in April 2014, St Albans Personal Training has been Assisting the Amazing, Ambitious, and Amiable residents of St Albans and Hertfordshire, to take Action and Achieve their Aspirations.

We began our journey as a company by running a free weekly bootcamp for the local community. We taught creative and challenging exercises which could be performed by anyone, anywhere, anytime, and required little or no equipment at all.

Today we provide personal training on a one-to-one basis at our private studio located in the Marshalswick area of St Albans. Many of our clients come to us feeling unsure about how to approach a new training regime, feeling like they do not know how to use gym equipment or perform different exercises correctly, or feeling a real lack of motivation or confidence towards the various aspects involved with choosing a healthier lifestyle. You may have felt like you cannot go into the weights room of a gym, go for a swim at your local swim centre, go running outdoors, or feel unsure about how to approach cooking healthier meals or even how to give up a high sugar diet.

Once our clients have started training with us they have found that they can overcome their initial challenges, improve their health and fitness, and achieve their goals. All it took was a little help, knowledge, and encouragement from an expert to get them underway with their decision to live a healthier lifestyle.

We hope and we’ll feel privileged if you decide to choose us to help you on your new journey today.

Qualifications: BSc Biomedical Science (2009) from Durham University. Level 3 Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) Qualified.

St Albans Personal Training Studio   My journey towards living a healthy lifestyle and improving my fitness began at the age of 16. My Dad bought me a Mens Health magazine which was full of dumbell exercises. I didn’t know much about gyms or weight lifting so I would read the magazine and copy the exercises with a pair of plastic dumbells in my bedroom.

Since then I have gone on to enjoy sports well into my adulthood. I play rugby (which I decided to take up when I was 24 having never played before!), enjoy swimming, and I love barbell training. I have enjoyed boxercise, CrossFit, and I even tried mixed martial arts for a few months. Why am I telling you this? Because I want all my clients to be able to experience the feeling of taking up new sports or joining exercises classes. I want to help people make a start towards a new, active, and healthy lifestyle. We all have to start somewhere, and for me it was with a Mens Health magazine. For you it may be the same or it may be with me helping you as your personal trainer.

Today I utilise my background in Biomedical Science and my experience as a personal trainer to teach my clients about the biomechanics of the body. I combine mobility, strength, and cardiovascular exercises with breathing techniques and the science behind nutrition and diet in order to help them achieve their goals.   St Albans Personal Training Studio
