About Us

I first started coaching back in 2006 in Pontefract, West Yorkshire and since then have moved around Yorkshire working out of various gyms both large corporate and smaller independents. In 2012 I opened my first gym and personal training studio. Yorkshire Kettlebell Club is a private gym now based in Huddersfield, and is fully equipped with:

  • Kettlebells, powerbags and slam balls

  • Power cage, barbells and dumbbells

  • 4 full size punchbags in our seperate boxing area

  • Battle ropes and plyo boxes

  • Bosu, TRX and parallettes

  • 2 x treadmills, rower and bike

  • Changing rooms and showers

My own fitness journey started with Rugby and Judo into my teens then onto bodybuilding and strength work in my 20's. By my 30's I'd started concentrating on endurance sports mainly distance running but also had a brief foray into triathlon. I completed several marathons worldwide including Limassol Cyprus twice and the Sahara Desert Marathon.


Next up I started training for kettlebell sport or Girevoy Sport as its officially known. I created Yorkshire Kettlebell Club which became the base for our kettlebell sport team. We went on to compete throughout Europe and were very successful. Although kettlebell training was my first love, I also branched out into strongman and powerliftng competition and again went on to compete throughout the UK. I also coached our women's powerlifting team.

Most recently I've again been focusing on strength work as well as taking up BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). And this year I've scheduled in another few marathons, first up being Salzburg in May!



Personal training for individuals, couples and small groups is available at our private Huddersfield gym, Yorkshire Kettlebell Club.

I've been coaching since 2006 and have trained hundreds of people all with wildly varying levels of fitness and experience. 

Whether you're simply looking to lose a bit of weight and get fit or are training for a specific occasion or event, then I will put together a personalised training plan to ensure you reach your goals quickly, effectively and most importantly, safely.


There are no short cuts, training can be hard and requires commitment and dedication but the results are always worth it!


To get started please click the 'BOOK NOW' button above to arrange your first training session and consultation, free of charge of course.



Our Huddersfield bootcamps go from strength to strength! Now held at our own venue Yorkshire Kettlebell Club, we use the main sports hall so have plenty of space! 

Usually set out with 15 stations, our circuit style sessions have both easy and harder options of each exercise so that no one is left out and everyone trains together. If you have any injuries or mobility issues, just let me know and we can always give an alternative for each station. Our bootcamps are always inclusive. 

Alongside the training we offer our original 21 day diet plan as well as healthy eating cookbooks in vegan, vegetarian, paleo, high protein and low carb options!

New for 2020 we are offering everyone who signs up for a full bootcamp a bespoke diet plan, personalised for their own specific goals and needs!



As well as our bootcamps and personal training, we also offer classes or small group sessions. These aren't your traditional gym classes, our sessions are small group personal training rather than large, anonymous classes. 

Our most popular class is our Wednesday 7.30pm HIIT Boxing class 'Saved By The Bell'.


This session is again run in a circuit format with a mixture of boxing sets using our 4 full size punch bags, and strength, cardio and bodyweight exercise.

We also still run our Saturday 9am session at Manor House Lindley 'No Rest For The Wicked'. This one is a total body interval training session with a heavy nod towards Crossfit style exercises. 

Again all of our classes are suitable for all regardless of your current level of fitness or experience.
