Personal Fitness Training in the great outdoors.

Ian at the Tyne Bridge

Hi, I'm Ian. I've been a PT since 2005, working throughout the north-east with clients in their homes, gardens, garages and most of the time - the great outdoors. I trained as a PT through Northern Fitness & Education and I am registered and fully insured with Fitness Professionals. My specialist areas with clients are weight loss, Kettlebell tuition for strength and fitness, training for specific endurance events such as the Great North Run, Pilates, and getting people completely new to exercise up and running and to a level where they can kick on.

As well as my main work as a Personal Trainer I have also taught group classes for major gym chains such as DW Fitness (formerly JJB) and Fitness First, and for major companies such as Sage and Proctor & Gamble. I have been featured in Now magazine, Mens Fitness numerous times, City Living (Newcastle), Weightwatchers online, and have appeared on ITV's "The Krypton Factor" and BBC's "Look North" - both with clients I trained at that time.

I appeared on the Channel 5 programme "Go Hard or Go Home" training 4 ladies from the Womens Institute to complete a Triathlon in San Francisco. I was also selected to train Faye Tozer, formerly of Steps, for a magazine shoot. A short while later Faye came back to me as a client to get in shape ready for appearing on stage.

When I'm not training clients or teaching classes, you'll find me strength training in the gym, throwing Kettlebells around, or running.

Are you looking to get in shape, lose weight, and make 2021 the year you really take control of your body?



Personal Training Outdoors or at Your Home


One to One

Training one to one ensures that you are working towards your own specific goals, and not following a generic one size fits all approach which you will be given in a gym.

Training one to one allows you to choose your training venue, your time, and effectively have the gym come to you rather than the other way around.

I offer a free no obligation consultation to discuss your goals.

Group Sessions

Training as a couple, be it with your partner or friend, can be an excellent way of encouraging and motivating each other to succeed, particularly between sessions with me when one person might lose focus with exercise or nutrition.

Training as a couple is great fun and is a great way of lowering the cost of your sessions.

I also offer group sessions for up to 6 people.

Pilates represents a unique approach to exercise which develops body awareness, increases flexibility and range of movement, tones and lengthens muscles, brings your mind and body into alignment and re-energises your body in a way conventional workouts cannot.

It requires no equipment other than the space to move! It is accessible to anyone, young and old.
