Background

Prior to commencing my employment at FX, I worked for a luxury health club, with both adults and children. There I ran personal training sessions, group exercise sessions, football-specific training and youth development programs.

I have a passion for the fitness lifestyle and like to lead by example by being a great role model for my clients. I post regular videos and updates of my meal preps and recipe ideas for people to try for themselves to enhance their personal fitness journey.

My desire to do well in sports enabled me to excel in Thai boxing and Skiing; moulding my personal strength and conditioning has allowed me to have a greater depth of knowledge when planning my clients’ progress and fitness goals.

Time With FX

Since joining FX, I have built a strong base of clients with 70% of them sustaining their training with me for more than 6 months. I believe that you need to be able to empathise with all of your clients, to put yourself in their shoes, to achieve the greatest results for each individual. I offer a personable service promoting positivity which enables my clients to see the long-term approach empowering them to reach their goals with feedback through social media. I find this approach motivates clients and allows me to effectively monitor programs and nutrition targets in order for them to reach their goals.

I have worked with a variety of clients, ranging from 18 – 65 years old, being male and female all having different goals and fitness journeys.  I have supported diverse clients in a variety of manners including: post-natal clients, clients recovering from major heart surgery and sports players. This experience has allowed them to reach their goals albeit: lose weight, get their confidence back to train and become fitter than they have ever been, become fitter, stronger and much leaner or most importantly developing clients’ wellbeing so they are happier and healthier with their bodies.

I am thrilled to be responsible for managing FX’s corporate wellbeing programme where I promote good staff wellbeing and fitness to businesses.

Personal Interests

Living a healthy lifestyle is key to my life and I like to be busy. I have a huge passion for all sports and am willing to give any of them a go. Whilst working in Australia, I took up surfing; I now continue this in Cornwall annually! Skiing is so much fun and always a challenge so I find it’s a great way to push myself and reach new goals whenever I hit the slopes. I’ve always been a footballer and fan from a young age and have followed Manchester United my whole life! I’m car mad and love a road trip out in the country whenever possible. My thrill-seeking mentality for going fast recently prompted me to take up horse riding. I’ve actually become rather addicted to it, as it’s a massive buzz when you turn up the pace and get the GG rushing forwards. Yeehaaaa!

I joined FX nearly 5 months ago from a suggestion off one of my friends and was introduced to Chris. Over the last 5 months I have lost over 2 1/2 stone and massively improved my stamina, fitness and work-rate. Chris varies all his sessions so that you don’t feel like you are doing the same exercises over and over again. Chris always goes that extra mile to help you reach your goals, he has created specific workouts related to Rugby for me to undertake outside of our sessions. I have and will continue to recommend Chris and FX to many of my friends and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else.

Since I started FX with Chris we've worked on many different aspects of fitness, core strength and flexibility. Chris has always taken a long-term holistic approach to the process and is very well informed in all aspects of sports science. Personally, I've gained such a huge amount from the help I've received. My flexibility has improved dramatically, my strength is far greater and I have gained more than 1.5 stn in muscle. But above all this, I have taken on board a great deal of positivity and this has helped with all aspects of my life. Chris also has excellent taste in gold jewellery. Top lad.

I couldn't thank Chris enough for the past two months on the Body Sculpt Programme! Chris has given me a huge boost into fitness! Wanting an intense head start was the best decision! I couldn't recommend Chris enough! Fantastic results within how I look, feel and my diet! Chris made the sessions intense but also fun and I've met the greatest people in our group sessions! Thank you so much for all your help and dedication towards our sessions and time to give me great advice and guidance!

Olivia Preston

Chris is an excellent personal trainer! Really knowledgable about both exercise and diet. Also very patient and really motivates you to get results. I'd highly recommend Chris and the fx team to anybody without a doubt.

Jared Liquorish

Since starting training with Chris I have lost over 2 stone. I love my sessions with Chris (although I may moan all the way through them). He goes the extra mile to keep his clients on track and motivated.

Amy Sethi

Really enjoy PT with Chris, had PT last January for 4months, lost over a stone and gained muscle, felt great & much better in myself, without Chris I wouldnt have had a clue what I was doing and due to his knowledge and commitment I was able to put my trust in him and knew he would help me in my journey, I have returned back this year with Chris and couldn't be happier, he pushes you harder each week, since PT sessions I find myself more confident going into the gym using equipment and weights and doing the sessions Chris sets me to do, let the training & journey continue! Couldn't ask for a better PT

Emma Wallace

Love PT with Chris. He makes the sessions fun and enjoyable so they are never a chore. I trained with Chris last year and felt amazing I found that we missed our weekly session and needed to regain focus and motivation. Coming back this year has done just that and I feel I am getting stronger week by week. Thanks for having patience and the passion to help us reach my goals!!!!!

Chris is not just a personal trainer, he's a coach, a motivator and someone who takes a genuine interest in helping you achieve your goals. He's firm when he needs to be and he doesn't let you quit. He pushes you both mentally and physically and he is literally worth every penny. I've lost a stone since I started 8 weeks ago. I feel stronger, fitter, healthier and slimmer. Contact him now.

Danny Finn

Chris has been amazing. He's great at keeping me motivated with not just training, but with my nutrition. He's also very tolerant of my humour!
