GP Exercise Referral Instructor, qualified in exercise training for Chronic Respiratory Disease, qualified specialist for Obesity (above BMI 30) and Diabetes Management:

Supporting clients who have serious medical conditions with exercise strategies to improve/maintain their health is an endeavour that Gavin finds very satisfying. He is experienced in training clients of all ages (with the oldest members being over 94 years old) and coaching basic exercise movements to enhance an individual's quality of life and fitness/strength. In some cases the exercises are delivered as 'chair based' however where possible clients are encouraged to exercise in a full standing or supporting standing setting.

Some of the medical conditions that Gavin is knowledgeable and experienced in supporting include:

  • COPD

  • Obesity

  • Diabetes

  • Hypertension

  • Osteoporosis

  • Arthritis

In some cases individuals will have medical conditions beyond Gavin's scope of interest/capabilities such as Stroke and Cardiac rehabilitation patients (in this situation he will look to refer you to a local specialist in the necessary area).

Gavin is able to support clients either in a class setting or a one on one setting. He can offer specialist personal training sessions to individuals with any of the medical conditions he is qualified to support, at his private exclusive gym, mobile (if client lives local in Plymouth area) or via online video chat.

Gavin runs a popular weekly COPD exercise class at Saltash Leisure Centre every Tuesday 1:45pm. There is general cardiovascular and strength exercises, plus coaching on the correct breathing techniques to manage the medical condition COPD.
