His goal is to forge a trusting and fulfilling coaching relationship with each client- you can be sure to make the most of your time and energy when working with Sam!

“Before working with Sam I’d been powerlifting for 5 years with a range of coaches. During this period I had no real goals or any direction, training was very stale, and I had plateaued on a lot lifts and my numbers. When I started working with Sam, he completely flipped my mindset around on what I was capable of achieving in powerlifting. He developed a great understanding of how I ticked, what worked best for not only my training but diet and life stress too” Nicolas P
