My Training style
Working from the ground up - by prioritising structural integrity first, before utilising effective breathing & fundamental movement patterns to build safe, challenging & achievable programs that will set the stage long term health gains and improve performance capacity.
My fitness philosophy
Education is the most powerful tool to drive success.
Your environment & intention will determine it.
The timing of information is just as important as the quality of it.
Taking time to master the fundamentals will create a larger platform for success.
Long term benefit should always be prioritised over short term gain.
My Favourite Workout
Depends on who’s in front of you.

"ith Tom’s knowledge, direction and expertise he has educated me about the way I think and train. When I first met Tom, he started from scratch and addressed what I wanted to achieve. Quickly determining areas I needed to focus on, Tom worked on my mobility, form & flexibility ensuring I was in the best possible position to make progress. Training with Tom over the past couple of years he has always remained focused and engaged in every session, keeping a close eye on form and continuously updating my program. If you are looking for a personal trainer who is personable, reliable and wanting to make difference in all the right areas, Tom is the trainer for you."
"I have been training with Tom for over 2 years he is respectful, reliable and professional. Prior to training with Tom I had chronic back pain and headaches, that required medication daily - had difficulty sleeping due to the pain. The training sessions included included regularly assessing my health and goals - I have been pain free for the past 8 months - and feel healthier and happier. I have osteopenia in my spine and need to remain strong, healthy and flexible. Am 55 years old and this is the healthiest and strongest I have been since my early 20's - thanks to training with Tom. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improved their and train correctly and safely."
"I’ve been training with Tom for nearly four years. I’m quite lucky, as you won’t find a more experienced, educated or committed personal trainer. I find myself much more motivated to train thanks to his thoughtful programming, which brings out his deep knowledge of neuro-musculoskeletal system, but is also engaging and fun. His deep knowledge also comes out if you ask about what each exercise is designed to achieve or how it’s beneficial. Tom always has an answer. Of particular note is his keen eye for form and helping clients with micro-adjustments to posture and technique, which you might not think much of, but does so much to facilitate progress, especially as strength develops. Without his help, there is no way I would’ve made such great progress with my strength, endurance and general fitness, since beginning my training, not just with muscle development but with activating and enabling full body movement. I feel confident that if I were ever to have a sports related injury, he’d be able to tailor a program to help my recovery.
With Tom you don’t just get a PT, you get an engaged and comprehensive health professional who will encourage you to do your best and achieve your fitness goals."
