Registered Exercise Professional

I am an Advanced Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer and work with people in both preventative and rehabilitative exercise. I am a REPS qualified GP Exercise Referral specialist. I plan, deliver, manage and evaluate a safe, effective and progressive exercise programme, personalised to individual's needs, health issues and lifestyle. I have a special understanding of Parkinson's.

You can be referred to an expert like me by your GP. I can help you with live better and longer, and hopefully have a few smiles on the way. I'm an older chap, I care for my Dad who has Parkinson's, and he says I'm sympatico, a wonderful compliment and something I try to be! Robin is also a qualified chair based exercise and frail / older persons trainer.

My knowledge includes how to rehabilitate people with:

  • orthopedic diseases such as arthritis and osteoporosis;
  • cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and coronary heart disease (CHD);
  • metabolic diseases such as diabetes;
  • pulmonary diseases such as asthma;
  • raised cholesterol and obesity, and many other common conditions.

I am a strong believer in adapting the way we live to include daily exercise routines.

For example for osteoporosis, apart from joining me nordic walking here's a little achievable tip that will help. When you get to the sink in the morning to clean your teeth, hop on the spot for 30 seconds first. Use the sink for balance if needed. Do it morning and night, and it'll make a difference.

I love the idea of fitness through stealth and shudder at some "one size fits all" full on group sessions or exercise lists that are just too demanding. These, though well intended, can easily be counter productive.

We will all live longer if we exercise regularly, I see my job as making that achievable and fun for you.This report seems to indicate exercise is especially good for arthritis.
