I have been in the fitness industry since 2005, working internationally at health clubs across South Africa, New Zealand and the UK. In 2011, I established Blackler Personal Training as one of the foremost training and nutritional coaching service providers in the region.
I am a UKBFF (United Kingdom Bodybuilding & Fitness Federation) competitor, achieving 2nd place in 2014. I also enjoy time away from the gym and shortly after my bodybuilding show in 2014 I did the London to Brighton cycle challenge to raise funds for British Heart Foundation. The following year I was challenged by a few close friends to accompany them in an off road event called the Dirty Dozen Race held at Hops farm, Kent. This challenge was special to me for the very reason; my close friends were under the impression that a bodybuilder was a slow and useless device when it came to anything cardiovascular. I’m not going to carry on boring you but in a nutshell I’ll never forget the day! Standing at the finish line looking down the grass stretch while waiting for both my friends to make it over the finish line only 10 minutes later – priceless feeling!
No matter what your current level of fitness may be, I fully understand physical training takes motivation and, depending on your goals, can be hard work. I provide a friendly and informative environment so that every client feels confident in the training we undertake together.
I am available 6 days a week, from 6am to 9pm both in a fully equipped gym or visiting you in your home / office. There are no additional charges for either option as personal training needs to ‘fit in’ with your schedule. I am fully insured and qualified in First Aid for your peace of mind.
Our training does not end at the end of each hour together. Clients are encouraged to contact me by phone, email or text at any time with queries or for motivational advice. I truly believe that success is built on our partnership.
