Community gyms is based in Bridge, near Canterbury. It is a unique training facility which aims to bridge the gap between Personal Training, group training, and regular gym going. We offer both group training and personal training.
I opened Community gyms on my own 4 years ago, at the time of writing, with about 20 loyal members. Now we have 5 coaches, over 100 members, train sports teams, sports scholars from local schools, offer massage, personal training and more. I’m passionate about helping people get healthier, fitter, and ultimately happier. I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved here, but I know that this is just the beginning.

My passion for sports strength and conditioning combined with Sports Therapy while working in football has lead me to provide a condensed version to personal training clients with the main aims being to improve your general movement quality, improve full body strength and promote a healthy lifestyle. If you have other goals such as weight/fat loss, injury rehabilitation, sport specific goals or just general improvements in strength and fitness I believe the functional approach I provide to sessions based on my practical working experience will help you reach your goals while making positive long term changes to your lifestyle.

My approach to personal training is not centred solely on your physical development, my philosophy
is that coming to the gym should be a part of your week that you really look forward, not dread! It’s
time for you and it should contribute to your overall happiness and wellbeing, so my sessions are
tailored to you with that in mind. So whether your goals are focused on weight loss, strength and
fitness or even stress-relief we can develop a strategy together to take you one step closer to
achieving that goal. I regularly coach group sessions and deliver 1-1 personal training, which I can
honestly say, is the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
I do have a particular personal passion for Olympic Weightlifting, which is the discipline that I have
chosen to practise for the last 2 and a half years, and I have recently qualified as a Level 1 British
Weightlifting Coach. However, I use many different training methods and gather inspiration from a
variety of disciplines in programming for my clients to keep things fresh and challenging.
