The success of an individual is down to their dedication and hard work. Everyone is unique and responds differently to training, therefore your training and nutrition program needs to be specifically tailored to you – the Verite Fitness method will give you exactly that.
I started my career in a family run gym as a Fitness Instructor whereby I also taught boxing, spinning classes and resistance circuits. 2 years later, coupled with valuable first-hand experience, I immersed myself into a more intensive personal training role. This was a 2-year contract onboard cruise liners involving personal training, yoga, spinning, aerobics, step and weight based classes with a large client base. I was able to monitor all of my clients and see how they reacted physically and mentally to my varied programs. This gave me the inspiration I needed for the Verite Fitness method.
I returned home for a year and continued gaining personal training experience, prior to moving to London where I worked in a leading London Health Club. The ability to providing personal training for a diverse clientele inspired me to learn new training concepts and to expand my studies into nutrition.
When I returned to Southport in 2008, I launched my business ‘Verite Fitness & Beauty’ and still have an ever-growing clientele, all with varying backgrounds, physiques and goals.

I’ve been a member at Verite Fitness for 11 weeks & can honestly say, it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. Immediately, I had positive first impressions as Christian took the time before starting sessions to talk through my history and goals, whilst also taking measurements and progress pictures. I’ve always been obsessed with the scales, but Christian has taught me that the scales don’t define success!
Not only is Christian a fantastic PT, he’s also a life coach and friend, who truly cares about the wellbeing of his clients. I’ve had an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise for 5 years, but Christian educates me around the importance of ‘balance’ and is gradually changing my mindset for the better.
I love the consistent structure of the sessions, with the ability to aim for PB’s and see gradual performance improvement. He knows exactly when you’re ready to push for that higher weight, without rushing the increase. All sessions are logged on his app so you can look back at previous sessions.
During lockdown, I’ve loved my Zoom sessions. Every workout has included a variety of exercises and I’m absolutely exhausted afterwards, in a good way! Prior to starting with Christian, I was obsessed with how many calories I was burning, doing HIIT every day in the first lockdown & feeling guilty if I didn’t do it. Whereas now, I’ve found a love for strength training, understand the importance of rest days and will never turn back. You have to enjoy the exercise you choose to do – it makes such a difference!
Christian is extremely knowledgeable about fitness and nutrition, but most importantly, he is so passionate and genuinely cares about you. I look forward to, and thoroughly enjoy, all of my sessions. They’re intense & challenging, but there’s always a good chat and laugh as you go! I would definitely recommend Verite Fitness – whether you are new to exercise or more experienced – they will tailor a programme to suit YOU!
I have been training with Christian for over 4 years. It all started with just a few sessions to get some new ideas, but I was hooked, seeing my fitness improve greatly with Christian’s training and nutritional advice. It’s been a great journey to see what I am capable of. I recommend him highly if you want to see great results and gain a new, positive outlook on your fitness. The other trainers are great and push you hard too.
I have trained with Christian for over 3 years. He tailors each session to meet my personal needs and mood! Christian kept me fit, healthy and active throughout my pregnancy and snapped me back into shape safely after giving birth too. He keeps me motivated and provides loads of practical advice on making realistic and manageable healthy lifestyle choices too. He’s super!
Christian is an excellent personal trainer who has great understanding of fitness and nutrition. He has helped me enormously culminating in completing Tough Mudder 12 mile assault course this year!
Where to begin? Christian trained me for the 2012 Mad Dog 10K, and what a great job he did! I lost 3st in weight, and went from struggling to run for two minutes, to running a 56min 10k. He covered diet, technique, strength, endurance, stamina and psychology. I saw Emma when I was having difficulty with my calf muscles; she gave me a wonderful sports massage, I left feeling great, and it did the trick. What a wonderful combination; two wonderfully skilled and special people who have the ability to help change your life for the better.
Verite Fitness is an excellent place to get your fitness goals sorted. After my personal training sessions with Christian, I managed to get 11 minutes off my marathon time AND run a second marathon 4 weeks later! AND I am back for more!
As ever, Christian puts up with our complaining whilst giving us firm encouragement to do the best we can. We are all seeing the benefits and despite it being hard work, we look forward to every session!
I struggle to think of enough superlatives to do Verite Fitness justice. Christian does much more than the average personal trainer. I trained with Christian for a year before he noticed that I had a back problem. The fact that he noticed this is testament to the attention he pays during training. After returning from surgery, Christian worked closely with my doctor to help strengthen my back. I also went to a physio at this time, however, Verite Fitness honestly provided a better rehabilitation programme than a qualified physio. I owe Verite Fitness a lot – without it, I could have been disabled. If you want a personal trainer who is passionate about his job and who genuinely cares about his clients rather than the pound signs then I advise you to go here. You would be on a fruitless search to find a better personal trainer.
