EXERCISE PROGRAMMES

As an expert in the field, Tom's exercise programmes are underpinned by an evidence-based approach, following Sport and Exercise Science principles, the latest research and, for clinical patients, guidance from clinical bodies such as the British Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (BACPR). Tom's methods have led to exceptional outcomes for his clients and have featured in publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine.


Tom prides himself on his meticulous approach. To create a completely bespoke programme, first of all Tom holds an initial consultation with his clients to thoroughly understand their clinical history, current health and fitness and to establish the client's goals for their programme, for them both to work towards together. Tom is then able to devise a safe and effective exercise programme that works towards the client's goals and takes into account their treatment cycles, medications and side-effects in the case of clinical patients.


Tom then trains individuals on a 1-2-1 basis throughout their programme, meticulously monitoring them within their training sessions and adapting the programme as necessary to ensure the optimal physiological outcomes are achieved to progress the client towards their physiological goals. Tom's work extends beyond the training sessions, with Tom on-hand to provide advice and support remotely as well as helping to create a training and recovery schedule, providing advice and analysis on nutritional choices and monitoring physical activity levels and recovery.

At regular intervals, Tom assesses his client's health and fitness markers and reviews the progress made with the client before using the data to help to adjust his prescription for the exercise programme and goals with the patient. 

Tom holds regular clinics at the world-leading Harley Street clinic, The Centre for Health and Human Performance, as well as working with patients privately at their homes, offices and gyms and remotely via phone/video call and through his online programmes. 


All programmes are available in the 3 different formats listed below to allow you to structure your programme in a way to best suit you.
