Going the extra mile...

Before you consider booking an appointment, I encourage all visitors and enquirers to read through my professional biography first, for several reasons:

1) So you can see my professional journey and have trust in my knowledge and experience

2) So you can understand my aims and intentions, which I believe is an absolute necessity if we are to work together and build a good rapport

3) So you know that the information you will receive from me, is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth... and off of the back of years of experience and from helping literally thousands of people, from all walks of life.

What I will say at this point, is that it is lengthy, but if you can’t invest 15 minutes of your time to do your due diligence on me, then ask yourself “how committed am I really, to achieving my goal?”, and this will help you understand which stage you are at, in the process of change.

My background in health and fitness dates back to karate during my childhood, but it was my teenage obsession with boxing which changed my life. At a time when education wasn't among my highest priorities, boxing gave me discipline and my interest in boxing grew into an interest in sports performance, nutrition and fitness. After leaving sixth form with A Levels intact, I trained to be a Personal Trainer in 2002. Not only did I want to learn how to take charge of my own strength and conditioning to compete in amateur boxing, but I also wanted to learn how to help others improve their own fitness levels too. This was the first time I had actually chosen a subject to study at free will, and for the duration of my diploma in Fitness and Nutrition, I completely immersed myself in this new endeavour. I knew then that in some way this would define my life, but had know real idea of how I was going to channel this new interest of mine into a career.

On completion of my diploma (of which, I won a college award for) for the first time in my life, I started to explore the thoughts of going to university to study Sports Science. I knew that my diploma was only the tip of the iceberg in the subject of exercise physiology, so realising my knowledge limitations, and in the interest of personal development, I enrolled onto my BSc (Hons) Sports Science journey.

On completion of my diploma (of which, I won a college award for) for the first time in my life, I started to explore the thoughts of going to university to study Sports Science. I knew that my diploma was only the tip of the iceberg in the subject of exercise physiology, so realising my knowledge limitations, and in the interest of personal development, I enrolled onto my BSc (Hons) Sports Science journey.

I passed my degree with a 2:1 award in 2006, submitting my dissertation studying the efficacy of caffeine as an ergogenic aid in amateur boxing. During this degree, I took an optional module in clinical nutrition as a break from sports-oriented physiology subjects. Being of an age where fitness and performance were my predominate interests in the subject of Bioscience, this clinical exposure was a whole new experience for me and for the first time, I begun to truly understand some of the effects of diet on chronic disease pathology.

After completing my Bachelors of Science, I almost went into a period of mourning. My degree was the culmination of much hard work, and on a journey that was not expected and where the pursuit to better myself was my compass. It seemed their was no further accolade for me to reach to, and at a time where the health and fitness industry was not as expansive as it is today, I struggled to get my foot into the door in the leisure industry. For the first time, I felt I could not push forward with the career I wanted in health and fitness, which frustrated me greatly.

I took a year to refocus myself and establish some new objectives and in 2007 I began my pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Sports Nutrition. Degrees were becoming more common, and my desire and drive to stand above the average fueled my motivation to earn my MSc. Once again, I dedicated myself to my new objective and was awarded a Merit after completing my Master’s dissertation in 2008, highlighting some of the current approaches to making weight in amateur boxing and discussing their potential impact on health, performance and safety of the athletes.

During my Master’s we spent a lot of time with the aspiring Dietetic students and once again, I chose to undertake another optional module in clinical nutrition, which resonated with me for a long period of time after I completed it. I was, and still am to this day, so proud of my MSc. It was my Olympic medal. Several years earlier, it was beyond my wildest dreams that I would ever earn

such an accolade, and now I stood confident and proud with some new letters after my name and ready to turn pro.

My self-confidence must have projected well, as within a couple of months I earned accreditation with the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and I was Personal Training in a national gym franchise, building a solid client base and enjoying every minute of it. In fact, it was at this gym where I met my future wife, who joined the team later and became the Fitness Manager. Whilst the majority of my work-time was fitness instructing and personal training, I ran the weight management clinic twice a week and began to see clients on a one to one basis to discuss weight loss nutrition or sports nutrition.

After seeing several private clients, I began to realise that few people had isolated health concerns, and some of the people I was seeing for nutritional advice did not just want to lose weight or put on muscle, they also wanted help controlling their blood pressure, cholesterol and in some cases their blood sugar levels. I was not equipped to offer some of them this service, especially to the level that they warranted, and realised my own limitations. Once again my drive to better myself began to dominate my thinking.

Before long, my self-development compulsion resurfaced and I had a new ambition. I wanted to try and attain the most highly regarded nutrition qualification, and work with other nutrition experts who would educate, motivate and drive me to become the best I could be. I wanted to be in a position where I could assist as many people as I could in reaching their fitness and nutrition goals. I thought back to the Dietetic students that I shared that MSc module with and decided I would return to uni one last time and fulfill my next goal to become a Registered Dietitian. After much procrastinating, I learned want needed to be done to be selected on to the course and began my destination pursuit. The competition to get onto the post-graduate course was fierce, so I strengthened my application by attending open days and careers events offered by the British Dietetic Association and by earned-merit, I was 1 of 11 students invited onto the course, out of over 250 applicants.

After many more months of studying and exams, supervised work-placements, and submission of various portfolios of evidence, I gained my Post-Graduate Diploma in Nutrition & Dietetics in 2012, and registered with the HCPC as a Registered Dietitian.

Hooked on the adrenaline of personal growth and immediately after this, I was now wanting to consolidate my knowledge in nutrition with my knowledge in fitness, and decided to up-skill my fitness qualification and complete the highly regarded “writing exercise prescriptions for clients with chronic health conditions” accolade, which includes diabetes, obesity, hypertension, COPD and many other common conditions.

Shortly after this, I began to work for BUPA as a Health Advisor. With this role, I would be able to screen clients’ health and in team with an on-site Doctor, offer the client exercise, diet and lifestyle advice, whilst the Doctor would focus on specifics from a medical perspective. I would carry out various anthropometrical tests, including BMI, waist circumference and Bodyfat testing. I would take blood samples to measure a variety of different aspects. I would carry out blood pressure testing, ECG’s, lung function tests, perform a movement screen and carry out cardiovascular fitness tests (Sub-maximal VO2 max tests). Based on the outcome of the client’s assessment, I would then offer them targeted advice in meeting their nutrition, lifestyle and fitness goals.

While working at BUPA was enhancing my clinical and practical experience beyond my expectations, my progress in my fitness career seemed to have stalled, and almost seemed like a ‘casual’ service in comparison to what I was doing at BUPA. I was ready for the next chapter in my fitness career, and after much hesitation and contemplation, I relocated my personal training services to Nuffield Health, who offered additional services much more in line with those I wanted to deliver. Part of my role at Nuffield was delivering a comprehensive health screen, which included weight and waist circumference measurements, blood pressure, finger-prick blood glucose and

cholesterol assessments, fitness testing and a lifestyle overview. My new role excited me greatly, and before long, I established a new and growing personal training client base.

After nearly two rewarding years working at BUPA, and always on the pursuit of self-development, I was ready for my next career challenge. My next career goal was to focus specifically on nutrition and enhance my career in Dietetics. After 2 unsuccessful interviews, and feeling deflated at times, I gathered my strength, reflected and revised my approach and became 3rd time lucky with my interview at Queen’s Hospital in Romford, where I trained as a student Dietitian a couple of years earlier. I started working at Queen’s in October 2014, five days after my wedding. As a practicing Dietitian, my role is to advice the medical team in matters regarding the nutrition and hydration of their patients. My initial patient-caseload was varied, and working under the guidance and tutelage of a mentor, I would see nutritionally compromised patients with a variety of medical conditions during their admission to the hospital or who were referred to the hospital as an outpatient. Typically, I would see patients who were either under or overweight, diabetic, had a cardiac pathology or certain cardio-metabolic risk factors. I would see patients with various respiratory conditions who struggled to eat and breath at the same time, and those who had certain food aversions or intolerances. I often saw patients following some kind of gastric surgery and those who were recovering from fractures or bone breakages. In addition to this, I would cover the diabetic and general clinics on a weekly basis, and several times each month I would deliver a nutrition seminar to patients who were recovering from a heart condition.

After several years of trying to balance an advancing clinical career with my fitness career, and working 6-7 days a week, plus evenings, as well as continue with my own fitness pursuits and trying to be an attentive husband, I realised my current work/life balance was unsustainable. Shortly before the birth of my first daughter in February 2016, I made the decision to stop working at Nuffield Health and concentrate on my Dietetic career and my family. Realising that now ‘time’ was a commodity, I scaled down my freelance personal training service.

In mid 2017, shortly before the birth of my second daughter, my scope of practice at Queen’s changed to working within the Neurosciences team, predominantly seeing patients having undergone brain injury, brain surgery, stroke or living with various types of degenerative motor neurone disease.

Now, equipped with several years of Dietetic experience, in addition to my knowledge and experience in fitness and sport, I decided I as was ready to fulfill a long-time career ambition, working in sports and exercise nutrition. In September 2017, I became recognised as a Sports Dietitian by the British Dietetic Association’s specialist group, The Sports and Exercise Nutrition Register, which is the industry’s gold-standard in credible sports nutrition advice. 2017 has seen me re-launch my freelance nutrition service, equipped with more knowledge, more experience and more focus to deliver a quality product, as a supplement to my carrier with the NHS.

My commitment to self-development and drive to be my best, continues still. I am currently undertaking further study in my specialist interest of exercise and nutrition in diabetes and weight management, and the management of blood sugar during exercise. With my desire to continually better myself, I can bring to you the most up to date, evidence-based information you need to manage your health and achieve your personal best too.

My aim is to provide an elite level service to those wanting to reach their health and fitness potential, no matter what their starting point is. My service will offer evidence-based nutrition, exercise and lifestyle advice, not just for the competitive athlete, or the age-group elite, but also for the everyday person who does not know where to start. I want to offer a service to the people who know exercise and dietary change may help them control a certain medical condition they have, but are struggling to take their first steps. I want to help the person wanting to lose weight, take control and set realistic goals and then share with them the tools they need, for us to be able to achieve them.
