Client Testimonials

Jack is a model professional who I’ve had the pleasure of working with, for several years at Portsmouth FC Women. In that time Jack oversaw the responsibility of our High Performance department, building great relationships with all staff and players. Due to his infectious character, knowledge of his specialisation and passion for the sport, Jack was able to educate, develop and monitor player performance. His keen eye for detail was illustrated through the planning and delivery of effective strength and conditioning programmes, on-field physical performance sessions and individual rehabilitation plans. Jack also implemented a proactive prehabilitation plan which aided the reduction of non-contact soft tissue injuries during his period at the club. I would highly recommend Jack to any individual or business!

Jay Sadler

First Team Manager Portsmouth Football Club Women

Jack is a fantastic personal trainer, he really helped me with football specific drills to enhance my performances, which really did help me in games and training. You can tell that Jack spends a lot of time and effort planning sessions and the knowledge, and depth he has in all areas is second to no other PT I’ve ever worked with. He always explains why we are doing certain aspects of fitness and training always answers any questions that I have in fantastic detail. He is the most passionate and motivational person I’ve worked with and would really recommend anyone that wants to enjoy personal training and fitness in his direction!

I loved working with Jack whilst playing for Portsmouth Women FC. He motivated me to invest time into strength and conditioning and fitness to enhance my ability on the pitch.

Jack is a very knowledgeable and passionate personal trainer and adapts things to suit your needs. He is always smiling and happy and is an all round great guy.

FA Women’s Championship Footballer, Lewes Football Club Women
I am 30 years old and have cerebral Palsy, I compete nationally in the sport of Boccia. As a result of my disability, I need high levels of support to achieve my sporting goals so I was pointed in the direction of Jack, Jack is a superb coach with a person-centred approach and takes your every need into account. In the two years, I have been working with Jack, my results have been absolutely incredible, I have never felt so fit in all my life. I have achieved several goals, such as increased my range of movement, I have reduced the pain and stiffness in my joints, as well as increased my strength and power in my throwing ability for Boccia to name a few. Most importantly I have been able to get back to my best following a few injuries I had in the past and now compete at the Athlete Academy again for Sport England Boccia. With hard work dedication and a structured progressive programme, Jack puts me through I am back and feel better than before. This feels like a second chance which I am grabbing with both hands.

Adam Hayes

Boccia Athlete

I have been working with Jack for personal training since March 2019. Jack is very motivational, keeps routines new, interesting and most importantly works with you to set goals that are achievable. Jack is great at explaining and showing the technique to ensure you understand and perform the exercise correctly. Personal training is now part of my weekly routine and I feel healthier and my fitness level is improving after each session.

Sarah Shepherd

PT Client

I’m not quite sure how to quantify the difference Jack has made to my whole outlook, not just on training but on general lifestyle. I no longer smoke and generally my focus on looking after myself and knowing how my body works and the benefits of the sessions with him are way beyond any expectations I may have had. He has this amazing ability to know your personal physical weaknesses and strengths and the knowledge to maximise improvement. It’s always so good to see him, as he is both genuine and very sincere and great company. I cannot recommend him enough, if anyone reading this is considering trying a Personal Trainer they should look no further.

Martin Head

PT Client

Jack was a pleasure to have working with us here at the New Zealand Sports Academy, I would have no hesitation recommending him as a Coach. His knowledge of Strength & Conditioning was very helpful to myself as a Rugby Coach as well as our Players who all developed well under his guidance.

Darrel Shelford

Head Coach & Director, New Zealand Sports Academy

Training for 3 years with Jack changed my life.
He helped me push my limits while having fun, he taught me how to run and how improve. He has been not just the best PT someone who doesn’t particularly like going to the gym can hope for, but he’s been understanding when I needed it and pushy when it was time to get out of my comfort zone.

I could not recommend Jack enough: genuinely caring, competent, inventive and constantly learning, he’s also open to suggestions to switch exercises and a nice human being.
What else do you need from a Personal Trainer? He’s funny too.

Elena Aiello

PT client
We would (and regularly do) absolutely recommend Jack to anyone whether they want to improve their overall health and fitness or have specific performance goals. He’s extremely well qualified and knowledgable and is a really nice guy. We’ve shared weekly sessions for almost 3 years and he’s helped both of us to improve our fitness levels as well as recover from and train around various unrelated injuries.
If you’re looking for a PT who will push you to achieve your goals but make you feel comfortable, help you to understand the benefits of each part of the session and make it fun, Jack is 100% your man.
