You Cubed Fitness is based on the numerical concept of raising a number by the power of three.  In this case YOU the client will create positive changes in your life leading to the results you want based on three core concepts:


  • Coaching
  • Physical Training
  • Nutrition Habits 


Coaching is first for a reason!  I believe that together we can create amazing outcomes.  YOU are the expert in you, I am the training and nutrition expert and together through coaching we can create a map to get your from where you are today to where you want to be.  That map will include what training you will need to do and how we can change your nutrition habits so that over time making good decisions will become second nature.


When I choose coaches and mentors I find it helpful to know a little about their background and their approach to help me decide if I want to work with them.  So here is a bit about me for your consideration!


When I was younger I played a bunch of sports and later got into training in the gym.  I went off to Uni aged 21 after a little hiatus from the "normal" process to get there.  I managed to get a first class degree in accounting and finance from Bournemouth Uni and in the process also worked a year for Intel (that computer company that makes the chips inside computers).  I must have done alright because they offered me a graduate position and I took it, moving to sunny Swindon to start my adult life after Uni.  I worked there for 10 years in a variety of roles in finance and business. 


During that time I continued to add to my university beer belly and got to a point where I was well over 100kg (~16 stone) and a lot of that was fat.  Needless to say I wasn't particularly happy with the situation and eventually went and got myself a personal trainer.


Fast forward to today and I'm 35 years old, married with 2 wonderful, infuriating, amazing children.  I still regularly have to work on my own healthy habits and still manage some complex relationships with food.  I love my physical training, it's always been the easier side of things for me.  I mainly train for strength focused on key lifts and have done a few powerlifting competitions. I usually get in 3 or 4 sessions a week, work and family permitting.


My route from my corporate desk job to self employed coach went through several stages.  From leaving Intel with just two clients to the busy business I run today. 


I wanted to learn from the best in the business, studying with EIF (European Institute of Fitness) to gain my Level 3 and then Level 4 Advanced Personal Trainer qualifications.  I'm also a Strength & Conditioning Coach and have/do work with a number of athletes training in various sports at national and international level.    

I hope this helps you get to know me a little more and I look forward to hearing about you, your circumstances and your goals.  If you would like to book a free skype or phone consultation please get in touch using the below details and I will send you a link to book in your call at a time that works for us both.
