One thing I have learnt is that the success of an individual is down to their dedication and hard work. No one method is going to suit everyone, everybody is different, and everybody responds differently to training, this is the reason why everything needs to be specifically tailored to you. The Verite Fitness Method will give you exactly that.
I started as Fitness Instructor 20 years ago and got my first job in a family run business. There I started as Fitness Instructor within the gym as well as teaching boxing circuits, spinning classes and resistance circuits. After two years and with gaining valuable first-hand experience I decided to move forward in my career. I took a position which offered me a great chance to work in a more intensive personal training role. That position was a two year career on cruise liners. During this time I worked as a personal trainer to the guests and also taught yoga, spinning, aerobics, step and weight based classes. I was able to train a large number of clients in a very short period of time. Being able to monitor all the clients I trained, and to watch how people reacted physically and mentally to the varied programs which I had designed gave me my first insight into the concept which has become the Verite Fitness Method. After returning home for a year and continuing to gain personal training experience in my home town. I took an opportunity to move to London where I worked in a top London Health Club. The diversity of clientele in London was the most valuable part of my experience. The information I had to give and the goals my clients set themselves forced me to learn new concepts in training and I then expanded my studies into nutrition. Since returning to Southport in 2008 I have continued my Personal Training and have a very large clientele base. This is ever growing

I am a hardworking, committed and determined person, and ever since I can remember, I’ve had a real interest in sport, fitness and having a healthy lifestyle. From playing competitive sport to a high level, to working towards a specific goal, I believe that the right attitude makes all the difference. I believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to take part in physical activity, and be encouraged and motivated at every stage to continue with the positive steps they are making, ensuring at all times that they are exercising in a supportive and friendly environment. I’m especially interested in people’s fitness journeys. Whether that be from a non-exerciser to taking part in regular physical activity, or a regular exerciser who is training hard for a specific event or goal. Helping support these people, in even the smallest way, would be a real pleasure for me. I enjoy helping people achieve their fitness or health goals, and seeing the positive changes this makes on that person’s life. This inspires me to improve myself every day, keep learning, and keep pushing to achieve my own personal goals.

My Philosophy is that you should always be attempting to be the best Version of yourself.
I spent years of my life being overweight, depressed and not living my life to the fullest.
I worked in the Retail industry for 11 years whilst studying at college working part-time up to Senior Management in my final years which i believe gave me confidence and people skills i have now.
Whilst Training in Management i went through a dramatic lifestyle change and lost 7 stone and fell i in-love with fitness, exercise and Nutrition.
This became such a passion for me I then decided to follow this passion into a career, where i became a Qualified Personal Trainer while working at Verite fitness gaining knowledge and experience which has now led me to be the Head Trainer.
Below is how i lost 7 stone, how you can do the same and il help you reach your goal
I ate less and Moved more
it really is that simple.
Those 5 words don’t really do justice for how hard physically and mentally it is, when you have been inactive and eating the wrong foods for most of your life!
First thing you have to realise is YOU got yourself into the position you’re in and only YOU have the power to change.
Second is set a goal, mine was to fit into a small shirt id purchased from my workplace.
You need to do the same set a goal weight you want to get down to and a timeframe, this will keep you accountable and motivated to achieve said goal.
Be more active, the more you move the greater calories you burn;
I got myself a full time job which forced me to move more, I prepped food to take to work instead of wasting my money on takeouts. Then i began cycling to work and home also upping my daily activity therefore BURNING MORE CALORIES ?
Stop snacking on high sugary foods, these wont fill you ;
I cut out snacking completely and didn’t eat anything between my three main meals of the day:
If i needed to snack because i was uncomfortably hungry i ONLY snacked on fruit.
Drink PLENTY of Water most people don’t realise you should be drinking on average 3 Litres of water a day;
I began drinking water by the litre which kept me fuller for longer in between meals and most importantly kept me hydrated and full of energy.
Stop looking for a fast Fix, there isn’t one nothing on today’s market is going to make you magically lose weight and keep that weight off;
I didn’t take ANY supplements whether it be weight loss pills, weight loss shakes or buy any Dieting cookbooks.
Eat Nutritional complex foods;
Everyone knows that Fruit, Veg, white meats and ground grown carbohydrates are healthy so that’s what i based my food on.
I kept by meals simple with foods i liked to eat and then allowed myself a treat at the end of the week.
Keep track of your weight and take pictures weekly/fortnightly to ensure you’re on-track to reach your goal;
I kept track of my weight by monthly weigh-ins and simpy the fit of my clothes, my goal was to fit into a small t-shirt i bought from my workplace and eventually i did.
Wise-up on your Nutrition;
I lost 5 stone form eating better and being more active alone without stepping into the gym, you can do the same
