I have a BSc in Sports Science and the YMCA level 3 personal training qualification. I provide personalised training programs in central London, at Gymbox in Farringdon.
Exercise should be fun, but ultimately you want to reach your goals. So if you want to compete in a Tough Mudder or a triathlon, your training needs a tailored plan of attack, which with my 9 years of experience I can provide.
I am a big fan of using crossfit style workouts to really push you, but also about providing balanced workouts that help you get fitter, faster and stronger without increasing your risk of injury.
I have also developed a number of set programs that everyone, no matter what their fitness level, can follow to gain strength and reach their goals independently. These can all be accessed here.
When you are training, it’s important to ensure that you are doing all that you can to prevent injury and also to assist recovery when you are injured.
Your body is a machine and it’s important that all the parts are moving in the way that they need to.
I am a qualified sports masseuse with a BTEC level 5 qualification from LSSM so get in touch if you need an MOT.

The Gym where I work – the new Gymbox Farringdon which offers the toughest classes in London (some of which I teach) has written a piece on… Read more “VPT Spotlight Interview”
Gymbox hosts a variety of classes including London’s most dangerous class ‘Flatline:’
The classes I teach (frame fitness, escalate and OCR training) are designed to help you improve your strength and functional fitness, so you’re prepared whether you just want to move around in your everyday life better or compete in the world’s toughest obstacle course races. Be warned, these classes aren’t your average tame studio class – I will push you to your limits, but I’ll also make sure you maintain your form, have a good time and come back stronger next week. Follow the hyperlinks to see more about each class and the class timetables – I teach Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
I also teach a more advanced class on Saturday mornings (10am at Farringdon). This class is longer, normally around an 1.15 hrs and will focus more on strength and technique than the timetabled classes. It’s also a much smaller group of people in attendance so I can really push each individual to challenge themselves and work on their specific weaknesses. You won’t find the description listed anywhere as this is a class entirely of my own making based on the training techniques I use myself to help me get in competition shape. If you want to come along and check it out, drop me a line to give me a heads up and bring along 10 of your finest British pounds – believe me it’s worth the money!
“In a world where every other person seems to have an opinion on how you should be working out and what you should be eating, it can be really hard to work out who to listen to. The fact that George practices what he preaches means I really trust him and, as such, I feel so much more confident trying out what he suggests than i have with any other trainer I’ve met before.”
“Having grown up dancing, I’ve always had a reasonable level of cardio fitness but almost no strength. George has really helped to push me outside of my comfort zone and as a result my confidence has never been higher.”
“PT sessions with George are always different, you never know what you’re going to get up to. One thing you do always know is that the functional results will be fantastic!”
“George has really helped me realise that I am capable of so much more than I thought I was. Training with him is always the highlight of my week.”
“Classes with George are always great fun – even if by the end of it I’m ready to sleep for a week! He always makes sure that there’s a great atmosphere and scales appropriately so people don’t feel left out or intimidated.”
“Every time I train with George, he’s come up with a new exercise or a different way to use a standard piece of equipment. As a result, I’m never bored and I’m constantly challenged as he manages to find ways to engage muscles I didn’t even know existed.”
