The National Personal Training Manager at Virgin Active shares his workout essentials with us


  • Ankorr
    Ankorr
    Ankorr is the world’s first "animate load harness." As a Personal Trainer it’s one of the best toys you can use with your clients.
  • Mega Greens Perfectly Healthy Powder
    Mega Greens Perfectly Healthy Powder
    I am a massive believer in getting your minimum of 5-a-day and having the ease of 34 vegetables in Mega Greens makes this easy to hit.
  • Vivobarefoot
    Vivobarefoot
    These are brilliant as your foot has all the technology it needs - the shoes simply let your feet do their thing.
  • InBody Tracker
    InBody Tracker
    This uses BIA (Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis) technology to analyse body composition. It’s a clinically accurate method to measure weight, body fat and muscle mass and I use it with clients so we can track progress and muscle mass.
  • Polar H7 Heart Rate Sensor
    Polar H7 Heart Rate Sensor
    I am a big believer in tracking and maximising your time in the gym so when I am training I always wear a Polar H7 as it feeds directly to my iPhone via Bluetooth.
