Richard is able to combine personal training with sports massage and nutritional advice – an excellent combination, and one which differentiates him from other therapists, both in terms of knowledge and skills.
Sports massage involves the use of individual client assessment, related soft tissue techniques and post-treatment advice to manage, manipulate and rehabilitate the various soft tissues of the body. It can be applied to alleviate a variety of aches and pains, whether they arise in a sporting or recreational context or simply from the stresses of modern life.
Building a successful relationship with you and motivating you to achieve your personal fitness goals is important to Richard. Being considerate to your personal situation and your individual needs is also a vital part of Richard’s caring style.
Richard uses his qualification as a nutritional advisor to show people the impact eating choices have on the body. He delivers expert advice for improving eating habits for weight management and general health and keeps up to date with the latest thoughts on diet and health, with a special interest in how diet and behaviour affect body composition. With a helpful, understanding and friendly approach he enables his clients to achieve a healthy long-term change in lifestyle and eating patterns with proven results.

I like to help my clients through listening to their needs and advising them on how to choose the best path to improve their health and well-being. I do this, not through shouting and pushing, but through empathising and taking a friendly and supportive approach.
