Personal Trainer Profiles

Speak to a member of staff and they’ll be glad to help you on your way to starting Personal Training. Book in at reception, or speak to the instructors directly. If you have a preference to who you want to work with all you have to do is say and you’ll be allocated that instructor.

“My background in athletics has given me great practical knowledge of distance running training, programming and sports training. I have worked greatly in the area of weight management and dieting though my passion is for sports conditioning. I have created many programmes for the Great North Run and athletics training.


“I have been having personal training sessions including weight management for 12 weeks and have lost 20lbs, Andy has given me a different insight to training. He is very motivating and makes each session challenging I am booking more sessions as I’d like to continue my fitness and weight loss, and with Andy’s encouragement I know I will”

“I have been a Personal Trainer since Jan 2013 but have been at the Crown Spa since 2008, I’ve gained knowledge on numerous types of training over my time here and want to pass these tips onto you. I can successfully create programmes for weight loss and nutrition but have a good knowledge of resistance training using weights or in the pool with aqua aerobics sessions.

“I joined the Crown Gym in Nov 2012 and although I used it regularly and enjoyed going. The most significant improvement in my fitness has taken place since Matty became my personal Trainer. Matty has always been very professional, knowledgeable, motivational and welcoming. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

“My main aim in personal training is for you to achieve your goal. Whether it’s to lose weight, gain strength, tone up, improve sports performance or your training has just plateaued and you need encouragement and advice to get you back on track. I try to make my workouts different each week and specific to your goals. I am a keen footballer and runner; and whilst I am not working I am also a Firefighter based in Sherburn.”

“I really didn’t think I could do the exercises I am doing, but with a Personal Trainer I have been encouraged to run again. I feel that it is a safe way of regaining fitness with a PT and can trust them not to push you too far and cause injury. I have also lost a stone in weight by using a food diary and being accountable to someone. I will be continuing using a PT.”
