    Small Group Training

    Fancy A Little Friendly Competition?

    Sometimes the added push from a friend or colleague is just what you need to stick to it. Ask about small group and couples training options.

    Make sure you succeed

    For many, this is the hardest piece of the puzzle. Ask about meal planning and prep plans that show you how simple changes to your eating habits, without sacrificing flavour, can yield real results.

    Chris has been my trainer for a number of years and I have benefited greatly from his expertise and guidance. He is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain the benefits of the activity and ensures it is being executed correctly. Chris has a great personality, easy to work with and wants his clients to achieve their goals. He is a great mentor. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to work with a personal trainer.
