When I met Richard I was doing powerlifting and he encouraged me to try calisthenics/mobility strength training as a new challenge to incorporate into my program. I had been interested in trialling this area for some time, and it was helpful that occasionally at the gym when we’d see each other that Richard would give me drills to try. Safe to say those small, but meaningful interactions, is what lead me to pursue Richard as a strength mobility coach.
My upper body & core strength has improved immensely since starting with him over a year ago. I’m getting closer to doing a free hand stand on my own (whereas I couldn’t even kick off the ground when we first started), my shoulder endurance is stronger which translates over to my powerlifting, and my recovery for upper body has also improved in result of the numerous stretches we incorporate. Also - my back and shoulder gains is even more noticeable now!
I can’t couldn’t recommend Richard enough - he’s always bubbly and positive, amazing to have a chat with, very patient and very knowledgeable. He’s a coach who recognises balance (literally) and a sustainable lifestyle, which is very refreshing.
Richard is unlike any other PT I've worked with. His knowledge base is industry leading, forward thinking and he's continually learning and passing on that knowledge to his clients. His energy is unmatched which makes a huge difference, especially on those days when gym is the last place you want to be.
I've been training with Richard for approx 2 years. My goal when I started training with Richard was to look, feel and move better. Looking better is a constant work in progress but feeling and moving better are things I have definitely noticed a vast improvement in. All those niggling aches and pains that most people live with are now a distant memory.
Richard isn't the type of PT that just goes through the motions, he clearly loves what he does, and loves to help people achieve their goals. I would never consider another PT so therefore couldn't recommend him highly enough.
Richard is a no bull trainer. He’s a coach. He’s a motivator. He’s a listener and observer.
If you are going to turn up, be switched on, not because he’s a gym junkie who will bust your guts, but because he takes your safety seriously and educates you on how to do things the right way, prevent injuries and get your body to a stronger shape and in positions your didn’t think you could do! He teaches you to listen and respond to your body. He guides you to push yourself but never hurt yourself. He coaches you to respect and appreciate your body for what is can do, despite your age or lifestyle. Through this he is gently (and not so gently sometimes 😏) motivating you to continue to push for results.
Your goals or focus may change because of the things in your life or where your body is at, Richard will adapt this in the session but also when he creates your bespoke programs.
If you want to get yelled at and do generic weights, do a pump class. If you want a body that can get better, stronger, more agile and lean with age, do program with Richard and see how you feel… I’m pretty sure it will be beyond what you thought you could do …
I can strongly recommend Richard as he has been teaching and developing me since 2016 when I lost my sense of balance. He has helped me regain my balance and improved on it. He has the knowledge and patience to help older people with their body improvement and especially with their balancing. I thank Richard every day.
"I started training with Richard because I wanted to learn how to do a headstand and a pull-up. After following his program and advice religiously, I achieved my first headstand in just over a month and my first pull-up in 2 months! We then continued to build my strength, flexibility and mobility in my entire body through gymnastic training & Weight training. With his guidance and mentorship, I became confident with my technique, built a strong foundation & learned so much about movement. There were many milestones during the past 1.5 years working with Richard, but I can remember how proud he looked every time we achieved a goal. Richard inspired me to become a personal trainer because he believed in me when I doubted myself.
With his support and mentorship, I built the confidence to start a career in personal training. I am so grateful for having Richard as my teacher. If you are ready to level up, change your Mindset & get results, I recommend Richard!!!" - Christelle Wan
As I have started to age, I needed specific programmes to ensure I maintain full flexibility and maximum protection from injury. Over a number of years now, Richard has delivered classes that have achieved my desired outcomes in spades. As a direct result of Richard’s training programs, I have maintained a level of flexibility that is excellent for my age & have avoided the usual injury ‘niggles’ associated with the ageing process. Richard’s adaptability (a hallmark of his training methods) was on full display (& a lifesaver for me) as he segued seamlessly from in-person classes to classes via Zoom during COVID.
I’ve been training with Richard (in the gym and via Zoom) since 2014 – his methods and programs have constantly adapted to my aging needs with the result that I maintain a level of fitness/well-being beyond my expectations (& certainly beyond my peers!).
I wholeheartedly endorse Richard as a personal trainer. What he has achieved for me has been nothing short of outstanding!”
When I first started Richard's class I was always tired size 16 and just wanted to feel better and fitter. Richard was such a patient , encouraging and superb trainer and always checking you were doing each exercise correctly so you didn’t harm yourself. Now thanks to Richard I am so fit and healthy and a size 12 and even better I feel mentally so alert. Almost every part of my body is finely tuned and with that comes such confidence in oneself. I could never have achieved this level of fitness and well being without him. Thanks Richard you’re a Champ.
From the moment I began training with Richard, I knew I had found a true professional who genuinely cared about my well-being and fitness journey.
My primary fitness goals were centred around mobility, flexibility, and overall body maintenance. Richard's profound understanding of the human body allowed him to craft a personalised program that suited my needs. He regularly assessed my progress and adjusted the program as I reached milestones, ensuring that I was continually challenged and making progress. What sets Richard apart is his ability to know when to push and when to remind me to pace myself, ensuring that I stay on track while avoiding injury or burnout.
Thanks to Richard's dedicated guidance and expertise, my overall health and well-being have improved significantly, and I not only achieved my goals but also gained confidence in achieving even more ambitious milestones I never thought possible.
Throughout our training sessions, there were numerous standout moments and milestones that left a lasting impact on me. One moment that I will cherish forever was when, after months of consistent training, I suddenly realized I could touch my toes for the first time in my life. It may sound simple, but this was a significant achievement for me due to my tight calves and toe-walking habit. I excitedly messaged Richard at 9 pm to share my joy and gratitude for helping me accomplish something I thought was beyond my reach.
Richard's coaching style and approach have been nothing short of exceptional. He is not interested in half-hearted efforts; instead, he encourages commitment and determination to achieve real results. He is the perfect blend of an expert coach and a supportive mentor. Richard's care and genuine interest in his clients' success create a unique and motivating environment that keeps me going, even when the going gets tough.
Without a doubt, I wholeheartedly recommend Richard's personal training services to anyone seeking to improve their fitness, no matter their age or starting point. While he is more than capable of training elite athletes and those aiming for peak performance, he also understands the importance of strengthening the body as we age. Richard is well-versed in providing the support and guidance needed to keep us strong and healthy for the years ahead.
Upon request, Richard records and sends me each exercise, allowing me to review and improve. He regularly updates the program and communication, advice and support is even open outside our training sessions. If you seek a personal trainer who will push you to achieve your best while providing unwavering support, look no further than Richard. He comes highly recommended from a thrilled and grateful client.
