I’m a former race rider with a long history of sports injuries, an ongoing need for physiotherapy, and a strong desire to stay fit, regardless. By necessity, I’ve learned quite a lot about sports medicine, physical rehabilitation, and the supporting role of nutrition in fitness and recovery. When I met Lee, I’d been struggling to find a personal trainer knowledgeable and flexible enough to take the lead and work with me. Lee listened to what I said, helped me to clarify what I wanted, formed his professional opinion, and designed the perfect programme for me. I began training with him in 2010. Today, at 61, I’m in probably the best shape of my life.
I trust Lee absolutely with my general health and fitness. Not only highly educated in his field, he’s passionate about continuous learning. He regularly takes new courses and constantly reads and researches, so I always know I can count on him to be up to the minute on current thinking in both nutrition and fitness. And if I ask him about something he doesn’t know, he dives in, does the digging, and finds the answers I need. He’s enthusiastic about integrating new ideas into his programmes, and whenever we incorporate fresh concepts or techniques, Lee provides expert guidance, so I’m challenged but always confidant that I understand exactly what to do, how to do it, and why I’m doing it.
Because I live a generally active life – and have an active history – I can show up on any day with various aches and pains, strains and twinges, but Lee never misses a beat. He adapts the programme on the fly to accommodate whatever I bring, making the best use of my time and everything I am able to do. If I show up with something on my mind, he’s a great listener; and if there’s something I’m not clear on, a great teacher.
Lee is compassionate, patient, inspiring, and unfailingly professional. He’s educated and experienced, honest and discreet, dedicated and motivating. I’m incredibly grateful to have found him, and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
