Hi I’m Norman and I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my bio.
I have range of experience and qualifications spanning 30 years in Physical Education, Rugby Union and the Fitness Industry (all listed below).
I studied an Honours degree in Physical Education at the University of Liverpool, (Chester Campus).
I have played and coached Rugby Union in both the UK and Canada and completed my Diploma in personal training in 2012.
However you’re probably more interested in knowing what I can do for you!
I can help you improve your muscle to fat ratio to give you that lean slender look, or, if you’re looking to add some size or strength I can improve that for you too. Both will involve the selection of the correct training programme coupled to the correct nutrition for your needs. If you want to train for a sporting or life event (a toughmudder, or getting married for example) I can guide you on your journey for that. If you’re lacking in discipline and need motivating or encouraging I am the appointment in your diary that you need. If you just want to train to improve your self-confidence and/or self-esteem then I am able to offer the appropriate support and advice for you.
If you have aches and pains, or have reached a plateau in your training or want to improve in your sporting performance my biomechanics coaching and skills in corrective and functional exercise could be just what you need. Muscle imbalance and postural problems are common limiting factors in performance and often increase the chance of injury.
When you train with me you will be motivated, educated, complimented and rewarded. Most importantly I will help you to have the confidence and knowledge to continue your training outside of your time with me. My goal would be to get you to the point where you no longer need me as quickly as we possibly can. (though I would hope you would want to continue training with me!)
