Harness the Power of High-Intensity-Training and Take-Control of your Body

Feel the best you have ever felt, both physically and mentally, even if life's stresses and strains have taken their toll.


Do you find it hard to keep your body and mind healthy and focused

  •  Do you find yourself juggling a busy work schedule with a growing family and mounting responsibilities?
  • Have you stopped doing the hobbies you love because you just have not got the time or the energy? 
  • Do you long for some 'me' time but just don't know how or when to fit it in?

We spend our day to day lives dealing with the stresses and strains of modern day life. These build up and leave us lacking the time, focus and drive to overcome these difficulties.

You have probably tried joining the gym only to find you didn't have time to get there or the drive to keep going.

That's why we approach Health and Well-being differently at Active-Rest 

I have spent the last 20 years learning how to use fitness and nutrition to ensure I live a happy and healthy life whilst maintaining a high level of well-being.

I hear so many stories of people that have tried different diets and training routines that have been given to them by 'experts' only to fail and get nowhere near their goals. This is normally due to:  

  • Social Media fitness celebrities endorsing products for financial gain which have little to no real world benefit.
  • Various different diets that promise fast results that do not actually address your lifestyle choices so bad habits always return.
  • A drop in motivation and no one to hold us accountable for our actions, or lack of. Motivation itself is a goal killer. We need drive and to know our 'why' to achieve greatness.  

Thankfully Active-Rest is here to help and offer the service and results you deserve...

     "If you want to get fit, strong and healthy then I would highly recommend Active-Rest. Richard is a very friendly and motivated Personal Trainer and makes the one on one PT Sessions tough but enjoyable.

What can you expect?


Video Training including Live! Option

This will form the main part of your training. Daily High Intensity Training Videos available 24/7 On Demand. They will all be Bodyweight Only so no need to have any equipment at all. These video workouts will test you and will be the foundation to changing your physical and mental health.

I also offer Live! Sessions in conjunction with the above videos and these are included in the Complete and Elite Memberships. Guests can also sign up to a Live! Session on a Pay As You Go basis.


Recipes and Nutrition Advice

Through education on how to change your lifestyle combined with 100's of Exclusive Recipes for every taste we will get you eating better and feeling great. At Active-Rest we prefer the idea of Habit Coaching because you are more likely to succeed if you alter your habits than just stick to a plan for a short period of time.


Daily Habit Coaching and Education Emails 

I want you to immerse yourself in Health and Fitness. Then ideally, through the education you receive, you learn new habits and continue making healthier choices. To me this includes living a mindful life. To be aware of your surroundings and begin to appreciate the simple things in life. We want to work on our physical health but we also have to work on our mental health and we can do this through mindfulness exercises.


Accountability Programme

We discussed this earlier and pointed out just how important accountability is to success. In order to ensure accountability we will have regular check-ins and also monthly online face to face meetings via Zoom (Elite Members). These will help ensure you stay on track and can also ask any questions you may have.  

The cherry on top

Now it’s Bonus time!

Included in your membership you will also gain access to over 200 private Exercise Videos showing how to do each exercise in both written and video format. You will also, as part of your daily educational material, receive Motivational Videos that I have utilised over the years and still do on a daily basis. I will also share my passion for Mindfulness and Meditation and show you just how beneficial they can be. 

Bonus 1
Exercise Video Library

Access to 200 plus Exercise Videos showing and explaining in detail each move stage by stage. 

This offers you a go-to place to find support on any moves you don't know or even to put together a small session for yourself if you want to.

The most important thing with physical training is technique not only for safety but also to ensure you get the results you deserve.

Bonus 2
Daily Motivation

I'm not 100% convinced that Motivation is the best tool to succeed. Motivation comes and goes. Drive is more important and usually lasts a lot longer. 

With that in mind though short sharp bursts of Motivation to get us fired up can help enormously day to day and for many years I have used Motivational Speeches and Videos to fire me up.

Some people use Pre-Workout but I use Motivation like an instant pick me up.

Bonus 3
Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and Meditation is a tool that I have used for some years now. It's not all Yogi's and Gurus sitting on cliff edges and humming mantras. Although that does sound calming!!!

Mindfulness to me is just about using the moment to find calm and relaxation in any situation. We move at a 100mph in everything we do and Mindfulness is simply slowing down this process and being aware of each passing second. 

I will share my experiences and what has helped me over the years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need Any Equipment To Do The Sessions?

All Sessions, both Live and On-Demand, are done with NO EQUIPMENT. All you need is a mat for Abdominal Exercises. On rare occasions i may utilize a chair or table for an exercise like Tricep Dips or Step-Ups.

Will There Be A Warm Up Before A Session?

Before EVERY Session without fail we always do a Warm Up for approx 5-6 Minutes. If you have specific stretches you need to do for injuries or tightness then i would suggest you do these just before you start the session. Or if On-Demand just pause it and finish off any specific warm up moves required.

Will There Be A Cool Down After A Session?

The majority of sessions, both Live and On-Demand, have a 5-6 minute cooldown at the end. If there is not a cooldown then there is specific Cooldown Videos available as bonus content so simply finish the session and choose a cooldown video to finish.

Do I Need Previous Gym Experience To Take Part?

The Live Sessions are tough sessions but achievable by most people. The idea is to go at your own pace. 99% of the sessions are done with specific timings for this reason. You may have 30 seconds to do a certain exercise. You may get 10 done or you may get 20 done. It does not matter as everyone is different levels and abilities.

With the On-Demand videos you will see Live Sessions plus Modertae Sessions. These are adpated sessions to make them slightly easier but still a great workout that will push you each session. 

During the initial 14 Day Experience i will run you through different moves and exercises ensuring correct form and understanding. The Video Workouts will be aimed at getting you to a level that you can do a Live Session and not feel lost or out of place. 

If I Have Specific Problems Can I Contact You For Help?

Depending on your Membership Level you have different ways of contacting me but the short answer is YES. I will always be willing to help with any questions you may have around specific issues. It may be an old injury or issue you have had in the past. I try and offer adaptations on exercises during sessions for instance if you have a bad back or sore knees. 

Most exercises have easy adaptations that will allow you to still carry out that exercise.

Don't ever be worried about contacting me. I am here to help and make sure you get the most you can out of your Active-Rest Membership. 

Can I Do A Live Session At A Different Time?

ALL Live Sessions are recorded and placed online as a      On-Demand Video. It is basically exactly the same as doing a Live Session but you can do it whenever suits your schedule. 

Live Sessions are currently Monday to Friday at 10am. The Live Session is recorded and usually available the next day for On-Demand Viewing. 

There are currently, at time of writing this, over 110 hours of training videos available and this is going up daily so do not fear...there will always be lots of fresh and new workouts for you to try. 

There is a possibility that Live Session times may change going forward to suit more people but this will be done in consultation with everyone.

Still on the fence?

This is completely understandable and you need to be sure this is right for you. If you would like to speak to me then please book a call using link below. 

I can happily answer any questions that you may have.
