I was new to the gym four years ago and started with general exercise classes. When I was introduced to Weightlifting this quickly became my passion. I now have experience with Powerlifting and Weightlifting and love to lift!! I’m also known for spending more time chatting than actually training, so please come and find me for a catch-up anytime.

I started Thai boxing at the age of 14, This is when I was first exposed to Strength training in order to help prepare me for competitions in Thai, MMA and grappling, I quickly became more interested in Strength and conditioning over the sports themselves. After opening my own gym (Stone strength and conditioning) I decided to concentrate on power lifting to keep training alongside coaching/running a business.
I believe that strength training is for everyone, and in my experience lifting has only ever positively impacted my clients lives.
I've been lucky enough over the years to coach a range of clientele from recovering tumour patients who had been struggling to walk, to multiple European and British champions in combat sports, I have had the opportunity to help lifters improve their numbers including one British record.
All I ask from my clients is they show up and put the work in, the numbers on the bar don't matter.

I have been doing sports activities since I was 14 years old. At that time, my main focus was the 100 m sprint. At age 17 I started bodybuilding training at the gym. After some time, I discovered Crossfit and it instantly became my passion.

Since then Crossfit has been with me all the time. I keep training in every spare moment between work and family life. All these years, I have acquired a lot of practical knowledge in the following disciplines: Acrobatics, calisthenics, crossfit, gymnastics, olympic weightlifting and powerlifting.

Currently, I really enjoy lifting weights! It's a sport that helps me focus in the moment/reach a specific state of mind and that fascinates me. I love it!.

For me, a gym is a place where a person can not only train, but also meet new, interesting people. You can have fun conversations and take care of your whole well-being. So if there is some free time, let's talk about lifting weights or any other topic.

I have always been sport oriented from an early age where I played an 'okish' standard of football, I tore my menicus in my knee in 2016 and after that ive always looked at ways to help strengthen and avoid future injuries to myself and now my clients. I have recently added weightlifting to my routine. Deep down I'm a massive nerd, I love how the biomechanics of things work. I like to read, when I get chance, theres always something to learn and someone to learn from.

Im a family oriented person and my aim in life is to help as many people as possible to become healthier, happier, fitter and stronger.

Come lift heavy stick with me.

I have been going to the gym for a good few years now, either training by myself or going to classes. Then, three years ago I started doing lifting classes with Adam and got hooked on the very technical sport that is Olympic Weightlifting. What I love is the fact that this is not about aesthetics but about how much weight you can lift above your head. It is a very powerful sport and the feeling of mastering a lift is amazing!

Being part of Staffs Lifting Club for a while now and loving the community feel, I felt very lucky to be asked to become a coach and therefore to be able to give back and help out. Please don't be put off by my serious lifting face, I am actually quite approachable.

Please remember, it's not always about lifting big weights, but also about having fun and enjoying the process. Be consistent, have fun, smile and dance!

I am a weightlifting coach with a passion for developing young weightlifters and helping them achieve their goals. With a background in swimming and CrossFit, I discovered weightlifting and fell in love with the sport.

Outside of coaching, I enjoy staying active in my own training and finding new ways to challenge myself and improve my own athletic abilities. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, getting outdoors and reading. Being part of Staffs Lifting Club is like having an extended family and it's a great community to be part of and I just love catching up with everyone even if it does mean delaying training!
