“I believe in a holistic approach to Personal Training. Feeling the best you can is not only about exercise but many other lifestyle factors. I can help advise on how best to bring these together for optimum fitness and wellbeing.”

About Terry

I am a very experienced Personal Trainer and have been involved in the fitness industry since 1997. I joined Team Bath in December 2015 and since then have built up a large, loyal client base who value my expertise, enthusiasm and motivational ethos.

I am passionate about helping my clients achieve long lasting health and fitness improvements and body shape changes, and I treat every client as a unique individual.

Your first session always starts with a comprehensive one-to-one initial consultation with a full health and lifestyle appraisal to identify your unique fitness goals. I then design a bespoke training programme and provide continuous ongoing performance monitoring and motivational support.

I work with a wide range of clients, from experienced athletes to complete beginners. I also have specialist qualifications in GP Referral & Exercise Prescription. In this respect,  I often train clients with challenging health conditions such as obesity, osteo-arthritis, ME, and depression, helping to improve their overall health with carefully selected and safe exercise programmes.

Continuous Professional Development is very important to me, ensuring that I keep on the cutting edge of new ways to train and think, which benefits my clients’ health and fitness goals. I recently gained my Practitioners Certificate in Systematic Kinesiology here in the UK and completed a course in Sweden learning techniques from Ulf Kilman, who is a highly respected and renowned Kinesiologist working both with elite athletes and everyday folk to ensure their bodies can perform at their optimum best when training, during competition and in everyday life.

These areas of study have given me a broader understanding of holistic health and wellbeing, not just from the physical fitness perspective but also the importance of mental, chemical, nutritional and environmental factors that, when properly in balance, greatly contribute to a more healthy and energetic body.

“I originally saw Terry with a shoulder problem I’d been suffering with for years. After just a few sessions I noticed considerable improvement in both ease of movement and flexibility.  Four years later I am still enjoying Terry’s PT sessions! Terry is an excellent listener and a great motivator, and I challenge anybody who after five or six sessions with him doesn’t see significant improvement in their fitness, flexibility and overall wellbeing!” Oliver

“Terry is very easy to get along with and is really good at tailoring a programme to your needs. I wanted to lose weight and get fit enough to run around with the kids. I very quickly lost over a stone and can now do exercises I had not expected would be possible! I have really enjoyed working with Terry and I am pleased with how much he has helped me.” Jon

“I started training with Terry when I faced a particularly stressful period in my life. I have felt a huge improvement in my mental health and have developed a more positive outlook on life with regular training, especially on the days when I find it incredibly hard to go. At the end of every session I walk away feeling positive, energised and proud of myself! I now look and feel much more toned, and my stamina and flexibility has improved considerably. Terry is a very approachable and understanding Personal Trainer and his many years of experience are evident in his knowledge and approach to fitness and his clients. I would recommend anyone to train with Terry.” Rachael

“I started working with Terry two-and-a-half years ago for some strength and conditioning support to assist with my running. The results have been brilliant, with huge improvements in my flexibility and mobility, and have helped me to maintain my focus, increase my mileage and set new PBs for all distances from 5k to marathon. The sessions with Terry are something I look forward to as they always well thought out and provide a great combination of challenge and tips that I can put to general use.” Douglas

“Terry is without doubt the best trainer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only is he extremely professional and knowledgeable but his passion for what he does shines through in his attentiveness. The care he takes with each and every session has really helped me to exceed my own personal goals. He is also a fantastic motivator. I highly recommend him!” Ella
