I suppose you’re thinking - another lad’s story about how he played sports at school and became a PT. It couldn’t be further from the truth.

From the age of 12 through to my mid 20’s  I battled with drug addictions. The drugs got harder and the consequences more serious until I didn’t know what I was doing anymore. That was until I found the gym. Smashing out training sessions was the best feeling – putting your headphones in and switching off from the rest of the world.

The reason I’m telling you this is that I think some of you may be able to relate. There are lots of different types of addiction its about turning something very negative into something positive and the gym helped me do just that.

Over the years training got more serious, I learnt about nutrition & I cleaned myself up. I’d be up at 4.30am for the gym at 6 am, before a full days work as a plasterer. Realising how good the gym’s been for me I wanted others to feel the same and motivate them which is why I become a Personal Trainer.

With the best fiancé and handsome little son. I’m now in my 30’s and life has turned around. I absolutely love working as a PT at Unit 7 Gym in Exeter and it’s what I was meant to do. I want to help as many people as I can – especially people who don’t always necessarily always believe in themselves.

Exercise is the greatest tool for making people feel awesome and I never thought that I could make such an impact on people – that’s what motivates and inspires me.

It doesn’t matter what you have done in life - it’s never too late to make a change and become the best version of yourself.
