I became one of Steve’s clients in March 2013 and have been training with him three times a week ever since. I previously rowed for Cambridge in the lightweight boat so I have always been able to push myself and had very good aerobic endurance. However, I was looking to increase my strength and build a little muscle but was lost when it came to free weights, which is why I decided to train with a personal trainer. Within the first six months of working with Steve I put on just shy of 10kg whilst keeping my body fat to around 11.5 %. I also more than doubled my strength in the big lifts such as the squat, deadlift and bench-press. Steve always works with me to constantly tweak and vary my training and this ensures that I continue to progress and stay motivated.
