" Working with Colin is exceptional. With his vast experience, he operates in a very personal way to reset our bodies (and part of our minds!) to remain active and confident as the years mount up. He sets out to break the patterns which have led us to stress our muscles and restrict our movements. He is about new energy and potential – not mindless activity "
Co founder of Shoon
" Working with Colin has stimulated me to think about why and how I exercise, but also made me think about my health more holistically. It’s making me more aware of what I’m doing when not exercising, which is paying immediate dividends – as well as investing in my longer term future "
" Colin takes a pragmatic approach to diet and exercise and his sessions are interesting, always different and highly tailored. I have become motivated and have a better sense of well being than at any other stage of my life and have noticed increased energy levels and an ability to recover from illness much faster. I am not somebody who likes training or gyms but I do enjoy being active and his program has enabled me to do so much more "
" Colin is a brilliant trainer. We are quite a few years on the far side of 60, but he has worked sympathetically with us over the past few months to improve our fitness and flexibility. A fount of knowledge, which he imparts clearly and understandably, Colin is kind, expert at his subject and very intelligent in the way that he adapts a programme to a person, and a situation. For instance, during a bout of the dreaded cough/flu infection that has been doing the rounds recently, he effortlessly changed my programme to include extra exercises to expand my chest and relax my neck and shoulders. I have huge faith in Colin, and cannot imagine a week without a fitness session at home with him. He inspires me to be fitter and healthier, and is most definitely A Good Thing! "

" After a long youth and adult life of sport, adventure, and a hectic business life, perhaps it should not have been a surprise when my fitness levels dropped and I began to seize up. I needed help. I struggled to get my socks on in the morning.
Colin was familiar with my problems and my condition (or rather lack of condition). Seemingly I was not the first middle aged man to go off the rails. I soon realised that I was in safe hands. Colin’s thoughtful approach and encouragement has turned my fitness levels round – and from everything heading south, now my energy levels are much higher, weight loss has been appreciated, and better flexibility has brought great benefits – including warmer feet! Socks now go on with ease!
It has not been without hard work, much grunting and sweat on my part, however Colin’s cheerful manner and careful explanations over the benefits from doing certain exercise sessions are most helpful and encouraging. I have total respect for Colin’s ability and methodology – whether he can turn this ‘cart horse’ into a gazelle, time will tell. Let’s just say it’s work in progress "
Founder and MD,
" Colin has transformed my fitness level through a balance of good advice, a structured training program and building rapport. I feel my overall well being has been enhanced "
International Human Resources Director,
" I’ve been ‘working’ with Colin for about 6 months. I may not be able to run a marathon – yet! – but I definitely feel much healthier and more flexible – which were my aims. For me, the discipline of seeing Colin regularly is important as otherwise I would not give regular exercise the priority I know I should, particularly as I get older. I’ve now got to the point where I would miss my sessions with Colin if they were to stop. I’m not a “gym machine” person and Colin has adapted my sessions without the use of traditional weights or machine "

" After 25 years by chance I met Colin again, perfect timing as the riggers of running a company had taken its toll, I needed an overhaul. The muscle memory was still there however I was a couple of stone over weight and very unfit if there was anyone out there who could put me right it would be Colin his knowledge his focus and commitment had me on track within 3 months I felt and looked better than I did that 25 years ago well done Colin keep me at it!
