About Me

Originally from Devon, I was a sport and fitness enthusiast from an early age, although to be honest where I attended school you weren’t given much choice.

From school, I joined the family jewellery business in the seaside town of Dawlish but soon decided I should try and seek my fortune in London, a sort of modern-day Dick Whittington but without the cat.

For the next 33 years, I travelled the world working for one of the most exclusive jewellers meeting the rich and famous to provide them with their luxury accessories. This often involved dealing with demanding international clients but I soon discovered that by using a calm and friendly approach with a sense of humour I usually won the day. This is now the basis of my successful approach when working with clients at PHT.

Finally, in 2016 I decided to follow my real passion and started PHT to inspire and assist anyone who was looking to improve their fitness and physical well being.

So here I’am, a 50 something personal trainer who loves people and is concerned about their health, improving their fitness, strength, mobility, and agility. Thus giving greater life quality and longevity.

My passion for life shines through in everything I do, so when you invite me to help you reach your fitness goals not only will you get an inventive and personally tailored exercise workout you will discover that your journey working towards improved personal fitness can be fun.

Call me to discuss how together, we can achieve your fitness goals

"I originally started training with H to gain further knowledge and skills in general weight training. Not only am I now confident in lifting on my own, H has introduced me to a variety of other exercises that I would not normally have considered before. These exercises I am now incorporating into my daily routines to add variety and interest."


"I am approaching 66 and apart from the normal wear and tear to my joints, I have rugby and skiing injuries which can still flare up. H is very good at handling my varying problems and adapts my programme so that I always have a worthwhile session. He is making a significant improvement to my mobility and fitness."

Mike B.

“H is a great trainer, who understands and listens to your goals and needs. I’m part way through a programme and the changes in my fitness and muscle build have been dramatic. H always creates new exercises making them enjoyable whilst still challenging you at the same time. I would gladly recommend H to my friends, colleagues, and members of the Park Club anytime”.

David C.

“H – just a few words to say how much fitter I feel since I started training with you for my next ski trip. I feel so much better prepared for the steep moguls than I did last year and I am looking forward to the challenge! The sessions have progressed gradually and I’m doing things now which I never could have contemplated a month ago, I like the gradual cranking up and your encouragement has made it all feel worthwhile. I’m even starting to look forward to the next session!! “

Hugh B.

“H established my objectives from the outset – improve fitness levels in time for some hardcore skiing – and tailored training programme to that. I needed a motivational PT that could push me to my limits whilst making the training fun and varied. He scores on all these points and he’s also a nice guy. Thanks for all your encouragement and help H”.

Paul D.

“I have been working with H over 15 sessions now after a break from the gym due to an injury. He has been supportive and informative to ensure I get stronger around my injury as well as pushing when required. His passion for fitness and life come through from the first meeting as well as his down to earth and realistic approach – highly recommended”.

Helen F.

"I started training with H in a bid to lose some weight and to generally tone up.

Using a variety of exercises, H knows how to tailor each session exactly to my needs providing encouragement and motivation throughout.

As a result, my overall fitness has improved to the point where I am now stronger and leaner - friends and work colleagues have all noticed the difference!

H is a fantastic personal trainer - I have no hesitation in recommending". 

Paul O.

A few weeks ago, H offered me a PT session with the intention of showing me some of the different things he does with clients. As someone who is pretty fit and strong and does a lot of training for a wide variety of sports, I didn’t think H would challenge me, but I was pleasantly surprised. H perfectly tailored the session to be challenging as well as different, adapting his normal programme to suit my strengths and weaknesses. PT’s are often guilty of ‘hand-holding’ their clients, being nice to ensure the return of custom, but with sport, fitness and weight loss goals, that doesn’t bring results. You need to be challenged for it to make a difference, and the way H makes training fun but different and adapts it to suit your abilities, high or low, makes him an excellent personal trainer. I highly recommend a PT session with H!

Client Review

I'm not used to going to the gym and H has made me feel comfortable in this environment whilst challenging me to push myself further than I thought possible, he intuitively knows if you can get one more rep. I'm fitter and stronger both physically and mentally and would highly recommend him.

M. Hairi

“Working with H, in a personal trainer capacity, has been an excellent journey of learning how to exercise properly, whilst gaining both strength and balance, with a clear view to long-term conditioning. H tailors our sessions through my full range of abilities from day to day, from stiff to hung-over, at the Rec or in the gym! I’m delighted to recommend H. Please give him a try.”

Eliot F.

"H is a very skilled personal trainer, who listens well to his clients and knows how to respond to wildly different personal situations. We
have been having joint sessions with him for over two years, and are
delighted with the progress that he has helped us make in the gym. He is relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable, has a good sense of humour, and he regularly checks with us to make sure that we are happy with his programmes. We hope to keep working with him well into the future".


"Being new to the gym I wanted a trainer that was on my wavelength and inspired confidence. I train with a friend and our 2-to-1 sessions are challenging and most of all fun so that we hardly realise how hard we have work till the next day! I highly recommend using H as your trainer “because you are worth it.. “

Katy K.

I never really enjoyed exercise before I came to H. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, but he made me feel incredibly at ease and confident! His encouragement and optimism about my fitness and ability really helps drive me, and I’m now completely addicted to weight training! I finally feel happy in my own body, I feel healthy and it lifts my mood drastically every time I work out at the gym in Brightwell. I can’t recommend H’s services highly enough!
