We started our business in 2010 after being made redundant in an unrelated job but always knew that sport, health and fitness played a huge part in my life since a young age.

Initially we opened the personal training and class private studio as a single facility. In 2016 we expanded to open our gym facility to expand the business and 18 months later we purchased a third unit to expand the gym to what it is today.

In 2010 our goal was, and remains to, inspire people to achieve more, to energise and to build strength and confidence to enhance people’s lives. We are pleased to say that we have worked with over 3,000 people, and counting, to do just this and we hear on a daily basis that we are changing people’s lives for the better which makes us very proud.


I started my ‘career’ studying an undergraduate degree in Sport & Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University and stayed on to extend to a Masters Degree in Applied Sports Science. Whilst at university, I gained experience working at the university gym, Leeds Carnegie Rugby, as well as a 2-year internship at Sheffield United F.C. where I worked with many now professional footballers.

I joined Bphysical in 2016, the day the gym facility opened and since joining Bphysical I have worked with a wide range of clients with a range of goals including improving body composition, improving sports performance & strength focused. I certainly have very keen interest in all things health and fitness related including both training methods and food/dietary habits.


My passion for fitness started from a young age, through martial arts and boxing.  After leaving school, my personal training qualifications were funded by the boxing gym I boxed for, whilst in return, I worked and coached in the gym.

After finishing my boxing career I found a love for strength training, training in various gyms around Ashbourne and Derby. I started training at Bphysical from their opening day, became friendly with Barry, Di and Ollie and in later years, was in the right place at the right time when an opportunity to join their team came up. I’ve been here since 2021.

In recent years I’ve switched my focus to endurance sports, running, cycling and swimming. I’ve earned a wide variety of experience through sport and fitness and use this to coach my current clients towards their own personal goals.


I studied BTEC sport and exercise science whilst I was at sixth form which went deeper into anatomy, sports psychology, nutrition and biomechanics. I’ve played hockey since I was 6 playing for Ashbourne and Derbyshire, however I found my passion for the gym in 2019 and decided that I wanted to help people get fitter, stronger, improve body composition and overall increasing their confidence and self-esteem.

I’ve been working at Bphysical since 2022 and have passed my level 2 gym instructor course and my level 3 personal trainer course since being here. I have worked with a range of people varying in age, fitness levels, mobility and goals. I take great pleasure in seeing people achieve their goals and create a healthier, happier and longer lasting life!
