Mark has changed my life. He has empowered me to make informed, sustainable, and long-lasting changes to my diet and given me the tools I need to feel confident in the gym.
He has really helped me change the way I eat. I am no longer obsessing about food and just eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. This gives me more time to do things that make me happy.
He really cares and goes above and beyond. It is like training with a best friend you have known for years, and each session is fun so you will keep coming back for more.
I am so lucky to have found him and I would recommend him to anyone looking to get control of their weight.
I found Mark's details after searching for a local personal trainer.
I was on a mission to lose weight (yet again) and needed someone to focus and support me. Mark was quick to respond and offered clear and concise information about what his role entails and how he supports people through their weight loss journey, which was so much more than the personal training I was originally looking for!
After over 20 years of being bombarded with diet culture, attending every 'slimming club' available, completing extensive exercise programmes and trying to self-navigate my own personal battle with eating disorders, I was feeling completely deflated and lost. Nothing worked, I still gained weight and fell into yo-yo dieting, this is where Mark has transformed my life.
I originally went in expecting to be given an exercise programme with 1:1 sessions but I was offered so much more. After having an in-depth consultation with Mark, he approached me with a few choices of how we could proceed. Due to my history, we decided that sessions surrounding nutrition education with supporting life coaching was the best route and I can honestly say it's changed my life.
Mark is patient, understanding, relatable, supportive, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate.
When talking through my history he has shown empathy and patience allowing me to share my story and supporting me through this whole process. He has provided me with nutritional education that has empowered me to make sustainable and achievable lifestyle changes which have in turn helped me to lose weight and focus on my health. Through the personal plan created by Mark we found that I didn't actually need a personal trainer but a journey of support and education that has transformed my life and built my confidence to make decisions about nutrition going forward.
This has been the journey I never knew I needed, it's been emotional but I'm glad Mark has been there for every step of the way.
The last 16 weeks have been life changing.
I went to see Mark for the first time at 5ft 8, weighing a couple of pounds short of 100kg, sluggish and constantly being told by my children I was pregnant. It was a vicious circle of junk food, low energy and lots of coffee.
From the moment Mark and I sat down to understand me and everything that makes me tick, I knew he would not only show me how to build exercise into my life but, through his nutritional courses, teach me a better way of living with food that comes from a place of experience, having been overweight himself. I also never felt nervous or prejudged for some of the habits I've always known were not good for me, but I could not resist.
Fast forward 16 weeks, and I'm honestly a new man and have entirely changed my relationship with food (and my love of weights). My goal when I met Mark was to get to 87kg; I now weigh shy of 82kg and love my new body; I also have an enthusiastic and proactive view of life.
It came at the perfect time, as my summers were always filled with cardigans and jumpers on hot sunny days to cover myself up, but I recently got rid of all my XL and large tops and replaced them with smalls. I am a 42-year-old man, and I last wore small tops when I was 11!
Thank you so much, Mark. You've honestly changed my life in an enjoyable and long-lasting way.
I can honestly say working with Mark has been life changing.
I have battled with my weight for as long as I can remember but with Marks support and guidance, I have finally managed to reach my goals and feel confident I can sustain them!
Mark’s approach was straightforward, intuitive and adaptive to my needs and personality making it really accessible and realistic to follow with a busy schedule.
I would recommend this programme to anyone, especially if you need structure, accountability and to have a laugh whilst doing it!
I completed the 16 week “Sustainable Change Coaching” Platinum Package with Mark and can confirm this does what
it says on the tin! I’ve lost 2 stone since working with him which is more than I could have dreamt of.
Mark’s approach is unique and highly personalised to each client. I was initially a bit sceptical about how one person could be so skilled as a personal trainer, nutritionist and ‘life coach’, and was very open with Mark about this before signing up. He explained how the combination of the three gets results, especially where clients really committed to the process and were open and transparent with him. So, I signed up to what has been the single most transformational investment in ‘me’ that I’ve ever made. Here’s how it worked for me:
Nutrition Coaching – Mark helped me to understand the basics of nutrition that I never had growing up. Being empowered to make informed choices, and with Mark’s support throughout, was incredible. Even reviewing menus for the most weight loss friendly choices. I came back from a week’s all-inclusive holiday 2lbs lighter, through making more informed choices about food and booze.
Personal Trainer – Mark’s made me fall back in love with weightlifting. The amount of variety Mark puts into the workouts on the workout app he uses means this is never boring. Having him on hand during the in-person session helps ensure safe lifting.
Life Coaching – This is the part I was most sceptical about, but I think may have been the most transformational. The sessions helped me understand that my relationship with food, exercise and work was completely imbalanced. This is something Mark and I worked on and I feel has been the most sustainable change of all. I now prioritise exercise and diet, putting me first.
The final, but most important, thing to say is what an incredibly lovely bloke Mark is! He understands that any weight loss journey happens in the context of the competing pressures of our life and work. But through all this, it really feels like he’s in your corner. Celebrating your wins with you whilst being there to support you through any lapses or setbacks.
Thanks for everything, Mark.
I started my journey with Mark 8 months ago after being massively overweight for the last 10 years (19st). Over those 10 years I must have seen 4 different Personal Trainers with little to no success (the most I lost during that time was around 10kg - 24lbs).
Through Mark’s nutrition coaching and customised exercise plans, I managed to drop 5st (72lbs/32kg) over 6 months and I’ve never felt better (now 14st). I’m stronger, fitter and lighter than I ever have been before.
The difference with Mark’s technique over other coaches is that he’s not only supportive and motivating when you need him the most but he truly understands what it’s like to go through the journey. He’s been through it himself and can tailor your plan exactly to what you need and when. He’s given me countless support through my little “wobbles” and kept me on the path. All his suggestions were easy to fit around my lifestyle and I started to see results in a matter of weeks rather than months.
If you’re sitting there thinking, “I really should do something about my weight” or “I need to get fit” then just reach out to Mark and you’ll be thankful you did. I was that person who had lost confidence, was depressed about my weight and now I have turned that corner and I’m not looking back. All thanks to Mark!
He’s a top bloke which I now consider him a friend who has truly changed my life and attitude around fitness and, what was my unhealthy, relationship with food.
I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done!
I’ve been working with Mark for about 7 months and have lost 20 kilos. When I first started seeing Mark, I was suffering with hip pain and insomnia, as well as being overweight. Within a month, I was sleeping so much better. Mark tailored the programme around my ability and goals and helped me with nutrition education and food advice.
I have never felt better. Mark has quite literally changed my life. I feel better, look better, sleep better and most importantly, I'm healthier. Mark's tailored programmes and personality are what made this possible.
His approach is unique, highly individualistic and challenged me just the right amount to make the results I’ve achieved sustainable. He’s also a genuinely nice guy.
Contact him. It will be one of the best things you ever do for yourself.
My experience with Mark has been fantastic! I have lost 30 lbs but also got much stronger. What is unique about Mark and his approach is its person centred, from the nutrition coaching and how that fits in with my lifestyle to the programming of my workouts. He also knows how to push beyond what I think is possible but not push too far.
Mark is focused on helping achieve results but in a friendly, supportive and non-judgmental manner.
I thought I was just paying for a personal trainer to help me lose weight, what I actually got from Mark was so much more. Great guy, great lessons, great experience.
16 weeks and I found my goal weight whilst thoroughly enjoying myself. I found the whole journey fun, educational and I’ve been left with the tools to achieve and maintain the body and health that I want.
Mark really was there throughout the whole 16 weeks and I couldn’t recommend him enough for anyone wanting to change their lifestyle, however big or small.
Thank you so much Mark for everything.
With Mark, I’ve been able to experience, for the first time in my life, expert-level, judgement-free, wholesome nutrition & training sessions online.
I’m Isa and I’ve struggled with food, weight and exercise my entire
life. Three Personal trainers later, feeling more and more inadequate for not fitting their mould.
I found Mark online. With Mark, I learned that the mould was inadequate, not myself. He understood right away where I was coming from and designed a personalised mould that changed my life.
Mark taught me how to put in motion the essential nutritional and movement skills I never got as a kid. But the key ingredient here is that he supported me, unconditionally, while I was learning new habits.
Mark, I’ll be eternally thankful to you. Thank you for being such an outstanding human being.
Mark has changed my life. No other PT has taken such a personalised approach and genuinely put in the time to help me reach my goals like Mark has. I always hated going to the gym and, though I always had fitness goals, I didn’t have the tools or knowledge to achieve them.
The programme Mark built for me, coupled with the consistent support throughout the weeks, has empowered me to make informed, sustainable and long lasting changes to my diet and given me the tools I need to feel confident in the gym.
Though I only met Mark once a week in person, we also met virtually over Zoom every week to check how I was getting on and to see if anything needed tweaking to my programme. He was also always on hand via WhatsApp if I had any questions.
I now love going to the gym, because I actually know what I’m doing! Even more exciting for me, my physical transformation has been next level and far more than I expected in just 12 weeks.
Not only do I have the body I wanted when I started this journey, but I’m now equipped to carry on by myself.
I’d recommend Mark to anyone.
Mark’s not a regular PT and coach, he goes beyond and actively listens to individual needs and goals. Starting with a thorough consultation where we discussed my goals, timelines and schedule, we set up a 16 week plan together which included weekly in person 1:1 training, a regularly updated and individually tailored workout plan and nutritional education, recipes, weekly nutritional feedback as well as weekly catchup calls to keep me on track and discuss questions.
As I became more confident with the exercises, he pushed me to my limits to show me what I am capable of whilst feeling entirely safe. This is a balance that is extremely hard to find in a coach, besides the knowledge, professionalism, good location and good sense of humour!
I am very happy with the results, feeling healthier, stronger and owning a mind-set which allows me to prioritise myself while I’m also taking care of all other aspects of my life.
Highly recommend Mark!!
When I reached out to Mark, I was struggling with various issues in my life including my weight. Mark arrived at a time when I was low, depressed and felt there was nowhere to turn. I honestly never believed there would be a way out.
I decided to meet Mark for a consultation and he listened with genuine care about my issues. He could hear what I was saying. I do not mean 'hear me' but 'really hear how I felt'. To my amazement, he locked into my concerns straight away and I started to feel like a weight had been lifted.
Marks style of coaching is incredibly intuitive and unique. After being with him for only a short time my weight reduced dramatically because he helped me deal with my emotional eating issues and he educated me on sustainable and appropriate nutrition.
I will never be able to tell you in words how Mark changed my life for the better and without question would strongly advise anybody to contact Mark immediately.
I believe Mark will change your life forever in a constructive, positive way.
Working with Mark has been amazing. He's got the perfect balance of being supportive & encouraging whilst still challenging you to work hard & improve.
I've always quite enjoyed exercising but he's helped me to fall in love with weight training. His nutrition education/principles are very easy to follow, allowing me to still eat what I enjoy and easily fit into my lifestyle.
On top of all the above he's also just a really lovely bloke who I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a coach!
