"I guide Men and Women to become more flexible in how they Think Move and Eat."

We must all strive to find the balance between what is right for the health of the individual and the health of the planet.

Nothing works 100% of the time for 100% of the people, there is no one size fits all diet."

My Story

It was in 2014 that I adopted a plant-based diet for ethical and environmental reasons.  I had eaten meat my whole life and had been at one point completely immersed in the fitness industry and bodybuilding worlds obsession with animal protein.

“Changing the world starts with changing yourself first, and the one thing you have complete control over each day is the food you put in your mouth.”

I am an award-winning personal trainer (National Fitness Awards 2013) with a wide range of holistic skills and interests to call on. I am also an Animal Flow coach, Reiki Master, an inspirational public speaker and I have just become a published author with my book Plant Powered now available on Amazon in paperback and kindle editions.

At the start of 2022 I made a bold decision to start allowing myself to eat some animal products as and when my body called for it. Still eating a plant based diet the majority of the time but introducing eggs, fish and meat every now and then when my body feels the need.

The journey back to a more omnivorous diet is still unfolding, to be continued.

My Physical Journey

Unique Perspective

And at one time I was even a big believer in the Paleo Diet, pushing more and more animal protein onto my clients and I even looked down my nose at vegan clients once or twice. I was then Vegan for 7 years between 2014-2022 and wrote a book on it, but have since switched back to a more flexible approach to nutrition.

"I was a 'proteinaholic' and ate steak for breakfast!"

Now having been on a journey away from meat to plants and back with a much more conscious understanding, my experience has put me in a pretty unique position to offer a flexible and non-judgmental approach to nutrition.

The Same Rules Apply

Basically, the same training rules still apply, and as with learning anything new there’s an initial period of confusion and finding your feet, which is where I come in to coach and support you in making long term sustainable changes to your Health, Body Composition and Performance whilst eating a diet that accommodates your needs with an eye on the bigger picture.

My Book

Plant Powered is part-memoir, part manifesto, with lots of recipes, nutrition and training advice for a healthy, plant-based diet and how it can benefit not just our own individual health but the health of our planet, it’s essentially ‘philosophy for food and fitness’.
