Friends and Clients often ask me about what I eat and what they should eat. Whilst the answer to this can be quite complex depending on goals and likes and dislikes the simple truth is that ‘diets’ per-say do not need to be overcomplicated.

Here is a short intro video from me explaining why I started

Active-Rest and my reason for being a Personal Trainer.


Active-rest went beyond my expectations and I feel happier and healthier and  stronger definitely. I think Active-Rest has it all covered...

My journey with Active-Rest has been fantastic. For me, the whole approach has been an eye opener. Not only are the sessions innovative and fun but there is real support form Richard to also focus on whole health, mind and body. I wanted to achieve strength to support other activities like horse riding and yoga. Active-rest went beyond my expectations and I feel happier and healthier and stronger definitely. I think Active-Rest has it all covered. The journey to a healthier way of life is not easy and I have struggled, especially during these uncertain times, thankfully I started with Active-Rest on their intensive course last January and, although very hard, the transformation has been amazing both physically and mentally. I can not thank Richard enough for his dedication, his workout innovations, and patience. He has given me the physical and mental strength to achieve anything. Thank you

Due to the current situation I decided to sign up to Active-Rests Daily Live! Sessions. The results have been amazing...

I usually train for triathlons and do a lot of swim, bike and run training prior to the triathlon season. Due to the current situation I decided to sign up to Active-Rests Daily Live! Sessions. The results have been amazing. I have never felt stronger and have seen a big visual difference also. Thank you so much...I feel fantastic

The most important aspect for me is the fact that Richard is passionate about what he does, he trains with us, never just giving a count...

I have been joining Richard’s classes since the first lockdown. My initial aim was to get fitter as I sit in front of screens all day. As it happens I have not just reduced my resting heart rate and feel fitter, I have gone down a couple of belt holes. This for me is a bonus. The sessions are perfect for me, they never get any easier and there is so much variety they don’t get boring. The fact that you don’t need any equipment, apart from a chair occasionally, is perfect for me. Finally the most important aspect for me is the fact that Richard is passionate about what he does, he trains with us, never just giving a count.
