I attended the focus on fitness training camp to try and step up the distance before a 70.3 ironman. Having only completed shorter Sprint distances and an Olympic distance before it was the perfect learning environment to increase the miles (and hills!) in the legs. The camp was brilliant- very well organised and tailored to...Read More

This time last year I wrote a blogpost on Food called Simply Cook. In this I described how I have spent the last number of years working with people who are trying to lose weight and athletes who want that extra ‘gain’ in their performance through their diet. What both have in common is that...Read More
As a personal trainer who works with athletes over many disciplines I frequently hear non-performance excuses like “My head was just not in it”, “I was on for a PB at half way, But…”, “it wasn’t happening for me”, “We’ve never beaten them before so we won’t do it today…”. Generally there is always someone...Read More

If you are looking to increase your fitness levels and reach your goals, Martin is the man for you.
The best thing about working with Martin is that he clearly remembers what it was like to start from scratch and because of this he understands what you are going through and is there to support you through it all.
I know without a doubt that I would not have achieved a fraction of what I have without Martin’s support and guidance.
I have been told at the track that we run so well together it appears like we are one person running.
I heard of Martin through a friend and cannot speak highly enough of the motivation, encouragement and self-belief he has instilled in me.
Through Martins personal involvement in my training, observing and tweaking elements as the year went on, my 2015 season consisted of me consistently knocking 7-8 minutes and sometimes more.
Whats special about training with Martin is that regardless of how many people he is training he has a massively individual approach and takes into account each persons level of fitness/performance, goals, challenges and balancing training with everyday life.
What Focus on Fitness offers is a ‘unique’ package, tailored to individual needs, combining Experience, Knowledge, Commitment, Time and above all Patience!
For anyone looking to improve their Running, Cycling or just to get direction and focus in training I have no doubt that with Martin’s help you can achieve your goal.
I would recommend anybody to try focus on fitness it’s changed me for the better in so many ways.
I am absolutely delighted to have completed my first Half Ironman, the biggest event I have ever done!
