About Me

Hello and welcome, my name is Andrew and Resilient Beings encompasses three elements of my life that I am deeply passionate about; Movement, Mind and Mountains.  Each centre around health and wellbeing and are rooted in my journey, development, challenges and fears I have encountered on the way.

The most mature of the three is Movement, a path I chose while still working for a large city institution and one born out of necessity to facilitate physical recovery and resilience against chronic back pain.

Mind and Mountains are works in progress to further qualifications in each.  The former, through realising and admitting I was not in the best mental health. In the latter, I find immense release accompanied by the physical challenge and beauty of incredible locations and pure nature.

I would love to invite you to join me on my journey, drop in from time to time, take what you need, leave what you don’t, and maybe one day we will meet through your desire to explore your Movement, Mind or Mountain.

The recent years of training have led to injuries for which I have been suffering with for some time which equally was leading to bad movement habits, and found that I wanted to shift a little focus on more specific technique and movement, which is why I was drawn to Andrew. To relearn technique and to be more conscious of how I moved for day to day benefit and also to improve movement during training with injury prevention in mind.

Andrew is an excellent personal trainer with a strong focus on technique. He takes the time to get to you know and make you feel at ease. Andrew tailors each session to help you achieve your goals. I highly recommend Andrew as a PT, especially for anyone who has a particular sporting love that they want to support with balanced and thoughtful training sessions.

I started seeing Andrew due to experiencing lower back pain. After just a handful of sessions, I am already feeling the benefit of his experience. He has been most informative and has a wealth of knowledge. I feel both my fitness levels and mobility have improved. Along with the sessions, he put a plan in place to enable me to carry out regular exercise away from the sessions to ensure my mobility continues to improve.
