About Andy

I have been fortunate to have now spent over 20 years working in an industry that I love - Health & Fitness.

My early years were more sports and fitness related as I worked as a sprint specialist coach developing young athletes to County, Regional and National level.

I spent a season (1993-94) working for Torquay United and have more recently been the 'Strength & Conditioning' coach for Newton Abbot Swimming Club.

In 2014 I became the Head of Sports Science for the Torquay United Youth Academy, a role that continued until the academy was shut down.

I have worked in London as a Personal Trainer where I also ran a very busy government funded GP 'Exercise Referral Scheme' in Islington.

Over the past 10 years I have become particularly interested in rehabilitation and have qualified in 'Advanced SwissBall Training for Rehabilitation' with the CHEK Institute, become an Advanced Bowen Technique practitioner and also qualified in Neuro-Skeletal Therapy and Somatic Neuro-Muscular Movement Re-patterning.

Competing as an over 40, I have won a National title and also placed in the top 15 in the world rankings for Long Jump.
