I first started working with Andy in January 2014. It was Andy’s passion on fitness and nutrition, plus his positive mind and knowledge that made me want to work with him as my nutrition coach. I had two shows booked in at the back end of 2014 so Andy knew straight away how serious I was about training and nutrition.
The support he has given me has been top class, weekly check ins, motivation phone calls, txt messages asking how I am, how training went and that’s only a few examples. When someone gives you that amount of time/effort it motivates you even more to achieve your goal and Andy is great for that.
He is now preparing me for my next shows and I can’t wait to see what we can bring to the stage this year. Josh Baldwin
Within a year I lost 2 stone !! NO diet just training…
After the wedding I knew I could not give up my personal training, Andy is not just my trainer but has become a great friend.
Andy will tailor the training and diet to your personal needs and health, I struggle with a bad back and Andy knows exactly what to do to support and strengthen the back .
I feel great and 6 years on I’ve managed to sustain the same weight as I achieved on my wedding day, I know I could not have done this without him, he’s a great coach. Linda Summerfield
I thought I was ‘being good,’ cutting out sugar and carbs but seeing no results at all, I had almost resigned myself to the fact that now I had this condition I was going to just get bigger and it was impossible to lose the weight, until Andy told me otherwise.
I saw Andy for a consultation and I can’t tell you how inspired and confident I felt when I walked out, he made me see that I needed to do this for my health and the weight loss was a bonus, as much as I knew that, having someone to talk to about it made it ‘click’ and my outlook on the ‘diet’ started to change.
So after a week of tracking, Andy sent over a few example meal plans to get me started…
Day 1 – Burger and Chips – What?! Seriously?! There is no way I can eat this and lose weight surely?
“Trust me” he said.
So I rolled with it, for the first time ever I was struggling to eat enough and the weight started coming off.
I was worried that too much socialising may hinder my progress too, but Andy reassured me that it would be fine if we plan for it. Ok this sounds too good to be true!
12 weeks later, after quite a few nights out and still having the occasional cheeky takeaway, I have lost nearly 2 stone. I don’t feel like I’m on a diet, I feel in control, I enjoy what I eat way more than before and I am happy.
What’s the difference… Andy cares, he is so supportive and encouraging and I can’t thank him enough for his guidance. I can’t wait to smash the next 2 stone together! Charley Stanfield
When I started my fitness journey last year I went on the typical road most new gym users go through – trawling the internet for hours on end looking how to get big quickly, supplements I need to take and endlessly watching YouTube videos hoping that one would give me the secrets I so desperately wanted.
Thankfully I met Andy and was shown the light, he cut through all the rubbish and went on to show me how simple it really is without even needing any of this 30 day ab challenge of endless amount of fad diets that magazines try to sell you. He cuts right down to the core and explains every little thing down to the smallest of details. This is what really cuts Andy away from the crowd is his ability to simplify the most complex issues and make them so easy, making a long term goal not daunting but exciting and gives you the motivation to which many of us find so hard to come by.
Ultimately Andy has to be the most honest, understanding coach I’ve ever met, not only does he have an amazing knowledge for his profession when it comes to training and nutrition, but also has the support skills to motivate and encourage. I couldn’t have found a better coach and mentor and now a valued friend to help me achieve the things I have and I owe him a huge amount of gratitude for everything he has done. Jack Tyte
I was going to the gym regularly but struggled to understand how to balance what I was eating with how much I was exercising. The main focus obviously was like any bride, I wasn’t happy with looking ‘ok’ and wanted to look like the best version of me. I was really eager to get going but Andy was good at managing my excitement, and gave a realistic time frame to work towards. We created a plan that enabled me to be in the gym regularly like I loved, but also meal plans to sustain the exercise I was doing. There is nothing you cant ask him, and he was there on the phone when ever I needed it.
Through a time when all the stresses of planning a wedding could have tipped me over the edge, he couldn’t have been more supportive! He is a great example of how being a ‘coach’ is more than just fitness & nutrition advice, but dealing with all the emotions that come with it. He has taught me so much in the time that I have worked with him, and his knowledge & experience has been the best education for me to understand how to reach my goals. Without realising it I found myself getting stronger & leaner and couldn’t have been happier with the results. If you can get a chance to get a piece of him you won’t look back, he’s addictive!

His mantra of ‘keeping it simple’ and the fact that he really works with you to understand your personal goals, motivations and lifestyle influences translates to truly bespoke programs that produce amazing results.
The individual focus he gives enables you to find what really works for you ultimately coaching you to make naturally healthy choices that deliver improved performance, increased energy and sustained results.
Working with Andy has made a significant difference to me across the board – I am leaner, stronger, faster and really understand how and where to focus my efforts to make every training session count. Hayley Briggs
