Movement

“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back, into safety.”

Abraham Maslow

My Movement

We are losing our movement capability, and I know this to be true because through passively abusing my body, overeating, moving too little, being too stressed, my back gave way.  That was my trigger, and it prompted me to learn how to get fitter, gain strength and increase my endurance by systematically changing my relationship with food, work and life.

My Aim

I help individuals recover, rehabilitate or move away from aches and pains, and I help people achieve greater health and fitness levels.  Stronger and more resilient.  My approach focuses on increasing fitness levels using good movement techniques, enabling you to become more confident, feel safer, stronger, faster, or take on previously thought unachievable challenges.

You

I can provide you with strategies to move you away from pain and build a solid foundation; that may be enough for you to lead a more comfortable life.

Maybe you are in good shape and want to get fitter and understand potential limiting factors. In that case, I will help you by using a different, balanced, sustainable approach, whatever your overall goal, be that running, cycling, walking further, gaining strength or losing weight.

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.

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.

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.

Personal Training and Coaching

Whether you prefer one-to-one sessions or small group coaching, I offer private personal training for people of any level of physical ability. Focusing on the unique needs of every individual, I am proud to devote myself to providing the very best tailored experience to every one of my clients.

My job is to help you arrive at a place where moving through life is achieved with ease.

I offer two different packages of tools and techniques:

  • Move: Better. A course of targeted treatment. A short burst of six bespoke sessions to tackle a specific ache, pain or injury.
  • Fitter: Better. A complete Personal Training and Lifestyle Coaching approach. We will work together, embracing everything that goes into getting the best results for you.

Move: Better

Private Coaching

Targeted private sessions to help you move away from aches, pains and daily discomfort.

Movement Coaching is about learning to manage and in some cases, eradicate discomfort, aches and pain and become more resilient.

Does pain inhibit your life or compromise your movement? Are you working with a physiotherapist, chiropractor or sports therapist and want to have a complimentary exercise plan to assist with recovery?

Do you experience postural, muscular or musculoskeletal pain or discomfort? Do you need more flexibility coordination or feel unstable/lack balance?

If so, I will work closely with you, and I will share the tools and techniques to help you maintain your body and keep pain at bay. So much so you won't need me; unless you want to get even fitter.

The sessions are an investment in you. The sessions are not personal training; they are personal rehabilitation. My work is not for the faint-hearted; it is for people who want to actively manage their bodies, pain, and lives.

The sessions are for you to the point of not needing me to help you afterwards. The choice to get Fitter: Better is yours.

If you would like to spread the cost or buy this package as a gift, please get in touch:

Fitter: Better

Private Coaching

Helping you to reach your own personal goals, enabling you to perform in all aspects of life with ease and flow.

Do you want to achieve more, be physically healthier and move better?

A movement assessment is the cornerstone of my work, and we will cover this in our first appointment together. Should any of the tests present pain or discomfort, the primary focus will be on addressing those.

I will create an approach specific to your desired results based on the results of the movement assessment, a life/workstyle conversation, including sleep patterns, stressors, nutrition and hydration. 

Unlike my Move: Better package, this is focused on fitness, health, strength, weight and lifestyle.  As such, I don't set plans that are typical or routine.

Instead, there will be variety and movement play with a balanced approach that supports you in achieving your specific goals, whether related to exercise or lifestyle. 

This approach is personal training for sustaining optimal physical wellbeing built on solid movement foundations.
