I specialise in using kettlebells in a one-to-one or small group training sessions for the purpose of improving strength endurance and reducing fat. I am also known for my coaching ability within Girevoy Sport and run my own club; Manchester Kettlebell Club.
I draw my inspiration from an extensive and diverse background, from my years as a national standard swimmer through to competing in my love of Girevoy Sport. Throughout my development as a trainer and coach I continue to research and implement the most effective training methods, constantly improving my skills and abilities to benefit, teach and motivate. But whilst every client/athlete is unique, a common theme always presents itself in my training programmes; an unparalleled intensity and precise attention to detail.
Like a lot of people I'm extremely busy and always short of time, so I need my workouts to be quick, effective and adaptive to my own hectic lifestyle of juggling a business with home-life, whilst still achieving the results I set myself. Whatever I do, I want to be at my best and being active, fit and functionally strong enables me to live the lifestyle that suits me best. I want to exceed my own expectations and want you to do the same!
Interested in working with me? Then all I ask is that you are serious about getting the results and changing your lifestyle for the better.

Girevoy Sports Union North East Kettlebell Open 2013
On Saturday 8th June, myself and my team Manchester Kettlebell Club headed up to Darlington for the next Kettlebell Competition. The team put in another awesome performance. Everyone medaled and we came back with 2 x Gold Medals, and 3 x Silver Medals.
See what others are saying about me....
"I can't believe the results I've achieved within a year - I have dropped from a size 22 to a size 8 and feel healthier and happier than I ever have before. Kettlebells have enabled me to work on all areas of my fitness; burning fat, building strength and improving my cardio performance. The versatility of Steve's training helps to ensure that you stay interested enough to keep you motivated. I would recommend Steve and his kettlebell training programmes to everyone!"
'I've tried loads of different training programmes but get bored quite easily - not an option with Steve! Love the variety of the sessions, even if they are really, REALLY hard! Having the flexibility of half hour sessions really helps me fit my training in, but kettlebells still give a fantastic work out. I've already seen, and felt the benefits of the training to my running and my overall fitness and strength (good for someone who normally avoids weights in the gym!!)'
'Steve's training sessions are a great way to keep your fitness programme challenging, varied and interesting. He works with you to set goals and objectives and devises a programme to help you stay focused and motivated to meet those objectives. The kettlebell workouts really do deliver results - my legs, arms and core are all much stronger and more toned since I started training with Steve. And although the sessions are challenging Steve's sense of humour means that they are also fun!'
