Biography

My name is Mike, I am currently a student nurse at Keele university. I have done sport and physical exercise all of my life having been a competitive gymnast for 12 years before making the move to weightlifting and CrossFit - sport is in my DNA.

My motivation for training (and life for that matter!) comes from the idea of always being able to better ones self; never being satisfied when there is more to achieve and never becoming complacent. The idea and thought of being able to continuously increase fitness knowledge and strength entirely fascinates me to a point of obsession, an obsession for which I believe is a necessity in all individuals who strive to achieve greatness.

I aim to be an individual who inspires others, someone for people to envy and look up to as well as being the best version of myself. I would like to progress as far as I can in my sport whilst gaining my qualification as a ‘nurse anaesthetist/ CRNA’

 

How I can help you

I can provide a vast and broad range of knowledge from many different forms of exercise, combining the most useful information from them all into one ‘bucket’. I have competed and trained for 15 years with the top athletes in the country as well as the top coaches and physios. From this I have been able to pick parts that I believe are beneficial to all athletes, ranging from beginners to professionals, in assisting their fitness journey whilst negating parts that do not yield great benefits.

I am a strong believer in the ‘back to basics’ form of training, recommending it to all who want to progress.

I offer my years of knowledge and harsh yet rewarding style of training to athletes and customers who really want to progress. One route in which I currently do this is via the Keele Weightlifting Society, a club for which I am the president of whereby we do our best to encourage people of all backgrounds to pick up a weight and get started in the world of fitness.
