Hello, I'm Chris and thank you for taking the time to take a look through the EcoGains website, I hope that this can be the beginning of a productive relationship.
I qualified as a Personal Trainer in April 2019, following a Degree in Civil Engineering and a Master's in Sustainability. I intend to apply the same diligent and methodological approach I used to complete these to my delivery of personal training, to ensure the utmost value and results for clients. I hope to create a socially responsible business by providing clients with a sustainability-focused incentive scheme and by minimising the businesses impact along the supply chain, see the About page for more information.
I have a background in sport and fitness. Having played football throughout all ages of my life, I understand the fundamentals of team sports and the demands these have on the human form. I have also competed in individual sports, most notably, karate, where I achieved a black-belt and entered tournaments across the UK and in the USA. In more recent years, training in the gym or at home has been my preferred form of exercise, and my passion for it has led me to where I am today.
My sessions will include exercises and techniques from all facets of my experience, from karate style basics to more traditional resistance techniques. This approach provides plenty of variety and no two sessions are the same. I am particularly interested in functional training, correcting postural imbalances, and improving proprioceptive control.
Ultimately, my ethos is to pass on knowledge to my clients which can be used and applied beyond the time spent training with me. My mission is to guide clients on how to manage their health through an integrated approach - so that they can lead happier and healthier lives.
I cater to all client goals, from just trying to be healthier to achieving targets in competitive sport. I recognise that when it comes to exercise, each client has different levels of experience, barriers, and motivations. Which is why I aim to deliver premium and bespoke personal training that meets my clients’ individual needs, whilst ensuring the training sessions remain demanding and above all, enjoyable.
