Having explained to Martin the surgery and chemotherapy I went through in 2018 and the effects it has had on my body, he put together a series of training programmes that have helped me to significantly increase my strength and general fitness.
He clearly knows his stuff when it comes to exercising and strengthening the body and its muscles but he is also skilled in adapting that knowledge to cope with situations where the body has suffered a degree of trauma.
He has excellent interpersonal skills, balancing encouragement to get the best out of yourself with understanding of your personal goals and ambitions.
This is all done with a great sense of humour and cheerfulness. I wasn’t sure whether I would enjoy going to the gym and having a personal trainer but, after working with Martin, I’m absolutely hooked and in danger of becoming a “gym bunny”.
