Primal Founder | Co-Owner

The reason I do what I do is simple: 

I want to prove that change is possible and, in doing so, help people to live happier, healthier lives. For me, the words “that’s just the way things are and there’s nothing you can do about it” have driven almost everything I have ever done. I want people to be passionate about who they are and who they can become, no limitations.

Speak to me about: boxing, nutrition, gut health, injury rehabilitation, postural correction.


Head Coach | Strength Specialist

Making ordinary people do the extraordinary is why I do this job. Watching clients start out thinking they can't, and seeing their reaction when they do, is awesome. Strength training should be inclusive for everyone, not just big lifters. Everyone has their own starting point and I love to help people progress in strength, and confidence. 

Speak to me about: muscle gain, strength, powerlifting, rugby.


Senior Coach | Movement Specialist

My mission is to help people enjoy longer, healthier lives by finding a sustainable balance of good nutrition, good movement and strength. For me, happiness is being alive and well for as long as possible. Keeping strong and eating well has enabled me to keep enjoying my lifelong love of outdoor activities. My ultimate goal is to still be snowboarding at the age of 90!

Speak to me about: movement, nutrition, fat loss, sleep, kettlebells.


Senior Coach | Combat Specialist

"That'll do" will never do!

As someone who is, let's say, a bit picky, I want the best from everyone, myself included. I want to influence the people I work with to actually care about becoming a better version of themselves. Getting to help clients hit their own personal milestones, and feel good about themselves will always be a great reason to come to work.

Speak to me about: kickboxing, kettlebells, calisthenics and all things bodyweight.


Senior Coach | Athletics Specialist

When I played rugby there was nothing better than walking off the field knowing that the preparation you had put in over the previous weeks, months and years had helped you to play that little bit better. A love of coaching more than playing has transformed my passion into seeking out the best ways to improve sports performance through all things speed, power, strength and fitness training. 

Speak to me about: sports performance, athletic performance, female physique development.

Coach | Postnatal Specialist

Health is not a size or a number; it's how you feel from the inside out, it’s treating your body with respect by moving it, nourishing it and resting it. It took me a while to stop chasing numbers and ideals. My "why" is to help others do the same. I want to help change the way people view training and healthy living. Health is something you can have control of, you just need to know how and that’s what I’m here for.

Speak to me about: movement, postnatal training and fat loss.


As someone who previously hated the idea of the gym, or any exercise in general, I know how daunting it can be starting a new fitness journey. But seeing first hand the how much better life can be when you are fit and healthy, all I want to do is help other people reach the goals that are going to help them feel better in every way.


Pilates Coach

'No Brain, No Gain' is my approach to training. By developing high quality movement skills and body awareness you create the potential to learn new skills, or to get even better at the sports you love. I enjoy helping people to realise their potential, which is why I love my job as an 'options facilitator'. Make the decision to train smart, not only hard, and you will have so many more options available to you whilst keeping training fun!‎

Speak to me about: neuro athletic rehab and training, visual and vestibular corrections, movement and postural improvements.


Sales and Marketing Manager

My passion is helping to improve the lives of others and when I met Darren, I'd never met anyone so equally passionate about creating positive change in the world. I take great pride in finding creative ways to communicate Primal's message to our audience. Watching people discover a new passion for health and fitness and achieve things they never thought possible makes my job worthwhile every day.


Primal Founder | Co-Owner

The thought that I could facilitate the sharing of the life changes I had experienced working with Darren was too strong to ignore.  Now together with a fantastic team of like minded people built up around us we are on our way to achieving our goal of changing the lives of 10,000 others.



I love being part of a highly motivated team of people who are passionate about helping others achieve their goals. I prefer to stay in the background but would like to feel that my contribution helps in some way so that the main protagonists can function that bit more efficiently. I take a worrying delight in proof reading and love it when my spreadsheet figures all tally to the penny.


Gym Dog

I enjoy tummy rubs, chasing the ball and walks along the canal with my Dad, Ollie. I'm also partial to stealing any food left on the floor... you have been warned.
