He has worked with international athletes in combat sports and skiing, but equally enjoys the work he does with non-sports focused individuals who train towards their own goals.  These include adults who just want to have fun whilst getting fit, parents who worry about their children being bullied at school, people who want to lose weight and develop healthy lifestyles, and victims of domestic violence who want to take control of their lives again.

He holds a Diploma in Exercise and Fitness (Personal Trainer), a Diploma in Sports Psychology, and has attended a number of High Performance Workshops run by Sportscoach UK.  These include Sports Conditioning (Donald Chu), Effective Communication (David Whittaker OBE), Long Term Athlete Programming (Istvan Balyi), and their Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop.  He has also been a level 4 Coach Tutor with Snowsport England, and holds a UKCC Certificate in Tutoring.

His martial arts qualifications include Ajarn 14th Khan Master level, Black Belt Kickboxing, Knife and Edged Weapons Awareness Senior Instructor (KEWAP), and BTEC level 3 Self Defence Instructor.  He is qualified and insured through the English Muay Thai Federation, and is registered with the Kru Muay Thai Association in Thailand.

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas
