A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hi I'm Tim. Been in the fitness industry for over 12 years now, prior to that I was a solicitor for 16 years but lost respect for the law following a messy divorce, as you do.

I'm a level 3 personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach and nutritionist. I have level 4 qualifications in sports and remedial massage therapy and in dealing with chronic conditions such as cancer, osteoporosis, and lower back pain. I also have the level 2 fitness qualification with the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) who specialise in golf fitness and biomechanics, which has added a wealth of knowledge and know how in relation to mobility, stability, strength and power.

I am married with two sons, live in Felpham near Bognor Regis and work from there and from the Littlehampton Wave gym and leisure centre.

A few years ago now I played representative badminton, table tennis and cricket, and still turn out for East Preston CC in the Sussex County Cricket League. I love my golf, and have just become a single figure handicap golfer on the links at Littlehampton golf club.

GYM BEGINNERS

IMG_3799_edited_edited_edited_edited.jpg


We all have to start our fitness journey somewhere! Olympic athletes, professional sportspeople, even Arnie Schwarzenegger were all beginners at some point. Joining a gym or putting your name down for your first spin class is a big step and overcoming such barriers is more than half the battle in  achieving your health and fitness goals.
Whilst most gyms offer 'induction' sessions they can leave you confused and even drain the positive vibe that prompted you joining in the first place. I can help put this right, build a realistic gym programme and build your confidence at the same time.

TESTIMONIALS:
'ON ENTERING THE GYM I FOUND EVERYTHING DAUNTING AND FRANKLY QUITE STRESSFUL. I FELT ALL EYES WERE ON ME AND ON WHAT I WAS ATTEMPTING TO DO. TRYING TO REMEMBER WHAT I'D BEEN TOLD DURING MY INDUCTION WAS HOPELESS. TIM IMMEDIATELY PUT ME AT MY EASE AND DRAFTED A GYM PROGRAMME THAT WORKED FOR ME AND THAT I HAD CONFIDENCE TACKLING BY MYSELF WHETHER EYES WERE ON ME OR NOT!'
VICKY M (38)


'AS A NOVICE GYM USER, I DON'T ALWAYS KNOW WHICH EQUIPMENT TO USE OR EVEN HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY! I DECIDED TO TRY A PERSONAL TRAINER TO GIVE ME SOME POINTERS. TIM MAKES A VISIT TO THE GYM A MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE FOR ME AS HE KNOWS WHAT I WANT FROM THE WORKOUT.  HE MAKES ME WORK HARD, BUT HE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOUR AND ALSO GIVES GREAT ENCOURAGEMENT WHEN YOU NEED IT. TIM IS ALSO VERY GOOD AT RELIEVING ANY ACHES AND PAINS YOU MAY HAVE. GOING TO THE GYM WITH TIM IS MILES BETTER, AND I'M MILES FITTER!!'

DIET AND WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

'All I want is to lose weight and tone up'

The most popular cry from new gym members. Unfortunately the truth is that losing fat weight in the gym is massively difficult and hard work. Sure you'll burn more calories doing a workout than watching telly, but half an hour on the cross trainer will probably only burn off half a Hobnob! Much easier just not to eat the Hobnob in the first place!! A gastric band around the fridge is what's needed, ALLIED to gym work. If you don't get your eating habits sorted no amount of gym will lose the fat weight you want. I can help you get the right balance without making massive and depressing changes to your diet.

TESTIMONIAL:

'Tim studied my food diary for a normal week, including a take-away and a couple of bottles of vino. He calmly suggested the much heralded 5 - 2 intermittent fasting diet programme, gave me some great menu choices and with no little self determination, gym work and support from Tim, I lost 40 lbs in 7 months! Doing a 5 - 1 diet now to maintain my gains, so all good.'

MOBILITY AND STABILITY

Regrettably it is part of the aging process, for the vast majority of us, to lose muscle mass and significant mobility in our soft tissue and joints. It creeps up on us, and the sad fact is that a fall, caused by loss of stability, followed by a long stay in hospital due to injuries sustained, is what contributes largely to our demise. BUT, and it's a BIG BUT, you CAN do something about it. Mother Nature is happiest when we try and help ourselves and improvements to your mobility and stability can be made at any age, promise!!

TESTIMONIAL:

'I've been working with Tim for well over 10 years and always found him to be professional, knowledgeable and good fun. My emphasis, following a number of health issues, was on improving my mobility and stability which are much improved and maintained. I can also say that Tim has added more than 30 yards to my golf drives!'

INCREASED STAMINA AND ENERGY

When any fitness level is measured a great part of that relates to what most people would call stamina or energy. How the body uses and transports oxygen around the body is key to getting and maintaining health and fitness. Our hearts and lungs do become less efficient as we age but will respond positively if we are careful in increasing cardio vascular exercise. It stands to reason that the further up the fitness ladder we can climb before inevitable decline occurs, the better our chances of being around longer and with a better quality of life!

TESTIMONIAL:

'Tim has been my PT for over a decade! He must be good as I keep going back. Tim has expert knowledge and I am confident in his ability to push me whilst knowing my limitations. He will mix up our sessions and concentrate on  that I want to focus on.

Tim has also trained my husband and daughter and met their very different needs. Tim is warm and encouraging but still gets the best out of me. He has a great sense of humour and I am proud to say he is a friend.'

STRENGTH AND POWER

Building or maintaining strength and power is fundamental to keeping fitness levels high and in coping with everyday tasks, let alone trying to bench press a new personal best. Losing muscle mass is inevitable as we age, building it remains an option for everyone, whatever age. Get in touch if you need to improve your strength levels. Power is really just strength + speed and is a natural progression as strength levels improve.

TESTIMONIALS:

'I've been training with Tim for just over 6 months now. The gains I've made are staggering! I've made significant changes to lifestyle and diet on Tim's advice which have made the difference from just 'playing' at weight training and really taking it seriously by following strict routines and protocols.

'Tim was instrumental at the start of my strength and fitness journey. I'm now Crossfit ranked in the top 3 for my age group in the UK, top 30 in Europe and top 200 in the world rankings and loving it!! Can't recommend Tim enough!'

'Tim has helped me prioritise my strength training and understand that good technique is all important.

Tim is very well qualified and experienced in how the body works, and doesn't! In particular, how the female body works and reacts to strength and fitness training.'

PRE-HAB AND RE-HAB

Our NHS do an amazing job but inevitably due to Covid and huge financial and staffing pressures, much needed pre and post surgery advice and guidance is seldom given. This leaves patients largely in the dark as to how to make recovery easier with correct pre-habilitation, or whilst recovering, the correct protocols for a successful re-habilitation back to full function and fitness. 
If you have had or are awaiting knee, hip or shoulder replacement, or other more minor surgery, I can advise on correct exercise prescription, remedial gym and pre-hab/re-hab protocols.

'I've been seeing Tim for 12 years, and have just turned 79. He's seen me through 2 knee replacements, one hip replacement and, more recently, a shoulder replacement. I had no issues following surgery and am certain this had everything to do with Tim's pre-hab and re-hab sessions that have kept me a  healthy and active farmers wife.'
Mary C (79)

'I have been working with Tim for over a year now. He has been key in my recovery from two total knee replacements. Tim's pre and post op physical plans have been complemented by both my consultant surgeon and physiotherapist.

You get much more out of a gym session with Tim motivating you and the gains made make him much more than your average personal trainer.'

Chris L (63)

'I have known Tim for a good few years, going back to Esporta and Virgin Active days in Rustington, and have had a number of 1 2 1 gym sessions with him.

During the last few months he has been especially helpful in getting me back to some sort of fitness after issues following knee replacement surgery and, more recently, triple heart bypass surgery.

His help and encouragement has given me huge confidence to move forward.

Tim is a trainer and therapist who will cater for your individual needs and I would thoroughly  recommend him to anyone needing to get back to fitness.'

SPORTS MASSAGE AND TREATMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF SPORTS INJURIES

I have Level 4 qualifications in sports and remedial massage therapy along with the treatment and maintenance of sports injuries. Essentially therefore I can beast you then fix you!! Seriously, the knowledge gained in these subjects has been invaluable in my ability to deliver effective and relevant personal training and strength and conditioning programmes. If you are unfortunate enough to incur a soft tissue injury, I'm your man.

IMG_3850_edited.jpg

SPORTS & REMEDIAL MASSAGE THERAPY

Designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports massage prior to and after exercise may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury. Nuff said!

IMG_3852_edited_edited_edited_edited_edited.jpg

TREATMENT & MAINTENANCE OF SPORTS INJURIES

Sports injury involves damage to part of your body due to sports, exercise or athletic activities. Of course similar strains and sprains can just as easily be caused in every day activities like gardening or just lifting a toddler onto your shoulders. Injury can be acute (sudden) or chronic (developed over time). I can help get you back to fitness with effective treatment including strapping and use of kinesiology taping as well as tailor made re-hab programmes. All good!
