Build Better Health with Coaching from Nigel

Improve Your Energy and Vitality with Less Effort

A Healthy Body Is a Energised, Lean Body

Are you Uncomfortable and Unconfident about the Way You Look and Feel?


Changing your body is the easy part!
Keeping it that way and continuing to make improvements is the real challenge,
too many people get caught up in social media hype that's neither personalised or appropriate for them.

We are all seduced by shortcuts Fast results often lead to fast regression and fast transformations can mean cutting corners.
At FeelingAmazing one of our core values are Health and Sustainability! Maintenance and improvements only come from treating you as a whole. Building your health makes all change easier because your body isn't struggling, it's supported.

The fatter I got, the more alienated and depressed I became.
I look back now and realise it was a valuable experience, It helps me be compassionate about where people are at,
and at the same time makes me determined to create lasting change for others too.

My coaching journey started back in April of 2006 and since then I've been fortunate to work with some great people. They all had three things in common;
The determination to change,
The need for a personalised approach,
and most importantly the readiness to learn

All you need to decide for yourself right is,
Are you reading this because you are willing and determined to take action and put in the work needed?
Or are you just looking for more free advice that you will just end up stockpiling?

Becoming a Health Coach enabled me to channel my valuable experiences to help others achieve their potential.

At FeelingAmazing we use a combination of intelligent, purpose driving exercise, practical nutritional and easy to implement lifestyle changes that are based on where you are now and where you need or desire to be.

The Start Of Something Good


The health and fitness industry has changed a lot since 2000 when I first started my quest for more knowledge on how to build better health and change the way I felt in my own skin

Once I had experienced my personal transformation, I decided to I qualified as a Personal Trainer in 2006. Helping others overcome health, body issues and injury rehabilitation has been my full-time career and passion since then.

To date, I’ve trained CEO’s, Directors, City Professionals, Semi-Professional Athletes, Actors, Surgeons and Nurses,
all of whom had one thing in common; The way they looked and felt was HOLDING THEM BACK.

By increasing awareness around their lifestyle habits and exercise choices, I've been able to make dramatic changes time and time again.

I understand how busy life can get, it can feel overwhelming to make changes because you don't know where to start.

Its especially difficult if you have been stopping and starting, which can make you despondent causing you to give up.

Even though you have a busy professional life, there are still means of helping you get the results you want.

My Personal Lessons!


My body transformation taught me very valuable lessons and also helped me be able to relate to those that were also struggling.

How you look can be a reflection of how you feel. If you feel depressed about yourself, it's very hard to even contemplate change, let alone be consistent.

Most people give up because they become overwhelmed by the noise and hype.
After having tried so many different things they start feeling confused and convinced that it's "Something About Them"

Your health is much more predictable if you take control of your health.
The natural peaks and troughs in health make it difficult to navigate, keep motivated and sticking to any sort of plan. That's why a big part of what we do is to teach awareness around the processes and indicators of cleansing, rejuvenation and becoming stronger.

I’m here to tell you that there's lots of bullshit in the health and fitness industry;
there's no magic pill, just determination, and persistence.
Unless you are willing to learn what works for you, vibrant health, life robustness and the confidence you deserve is always going to be unattainable, because you are too occupied chasing this that and the other.

When you are young, you can get away with neglecting your health.
You can blast yourself in the gym, eat poorly and still look fantastic, if you're lucky.

So you have a choice, you can either take note and action now
or gamble your health and untimely your happiness by imitating fads and those that make the most noise.

I believe personal success relates to your health.
Put it this way, more Energy and Vitality means getting more done because you have the "Oomph" to do so.

  • To sum up: Nigel is intelligent, creative, and intuitive about training; he has vast expertise and experience; and he’s focused, disciplined, and generous. I was very lucky to have him as a personal trainer. I have worked with Nigel for six months, since March 2007. I will be leaving London at the end of this month, to return to my work in the USA, and my training sessions with Nigel will end then as well. This is a perfect moment for me to describe Nigel’s coaching and to reflect on how far he has brought me in six months. Nigel is an inspired trainer. He has sure knowledge of movement dynamics and muscle systems. He focuses intensely on his clients during their sessions, taking account of the big picture of the client’s movements and analyzing parts of the movement in detail. In a way that is completely non-judgmental, he’ll assess what the client can do, and he’ll reassess over time. He’s quick to perceive what needs correction, and he corrects on the spot, with precision and with clear explanations. He’s generous with his praise and sensitive with his corrections, but he is also unfailingly objective and honest so that you can always know when you are doing something right and when you are on the wrong track with a movement. He’s amazingly creative on the floor, combining familiar exercises with new ones, or simple movements with more complex ones so that the client can chart his or her own progress over time. He makes the progress interesting: not just more reps of this or heavier weights of that, but ever new combinations of machines, free weights, and core and balancing exercises, so I had a constant sense of discovery and even surprise. He’s inventive on the spot: if a machine or piece of equipment isn't available at one moment, he’ll improvise and create a more challenging alternative. Nigel is both passionate and disciplined about training. This means that he will challenge you as far as you are willing to go, but he will never forget the basics of good training, which for him are core stability and strength. He’s got uncanny instincts about how to push and inspire a client and help one overcome lack of confidence or fear of something new. He also helps the client to think through the movement and to perform it with awareness. He's deeply intelligent and analytical, and he’ll explain and demonstrate the elements and purpose of a movement so that you can put that knowledge to work as you learn how to do it. He used his many years of experience in weight training, bodybuilding martial arts, boxing, and dance, and he pulled all this expertise together to craft an integrated and exciting training program for me. So what did I learn and achieve over six months? I started out at one day per week, and made such noticeable progress that I increased to two sessions per week for the last two months of my stay. When I began I had almost no experience of training with weights and machines, and I was not particularly strong. But things that I could not even conceive of doing before, much less do, are now basic routines for me. These include: press-ups and pull-ups using the swiss ball to balance lower or upper body; using the balance ball for squats with increasingly heavy weights; and standing on the balance ball for rowing exercises as well as hamstring exercises. All of the strength I've developed over the last six months has made a massive difference in my capacity for other exercise, notably running. I’m certain that Nigel’s emphasis on core strength and stability has increased my endurance for longer and harder runs. Finally, training with Nigel has given me a completely new kind of self-confidence in my physical ability and strength. I would not have continued the sessions if I had not found myself making so much progress, and I attribute the improvement to Nigel’s skilful teaching. Rita

    Nigel really helped me link up muscle groups, target and strengthen specific weak muscles and develop those exercises all within an hour. It has improved my core strength lots, helped my posture and given me the grounding to develop my leg strength quicker, I’ve already booked more sessions with Nigel!

    Personal Training with Nigel really got me thinking about my own training. Its is to easy to go to the gym thinking that you are keeping fit, but not necessary getting the best out of your time training.

    Training regularly with Nigel has improved my overall well-being, increased my strength and stamina and enabled me to set and achieve targets beyond my expectation. I fractured my arm in a skiing accident; with Nigel’s help my confidence was regained quickly, helping me on to a full recovery. His ease of manner has created a good rapport and made the sessions really enjoyable. This in turn has built the trust necessary to push me beyond my boundaries.

    Even just a few sessions with Nigel (so far) has paid absolute dividends with regards to my fitness and confidence. His holistic approach and cheery enthusiasm make for inspiring (yet quite tough!) condensed sessions which provide motivation, making me want to do more and push myself further, for longer. He shakes up the program regularly to ensure I’m not bored and continue to challenge myself. It’s the surefire way to get results. His advice and support following significant damage to my knee after an accident has been invaluable and I’m now running again, with stronger knees and a better running style. His dietary advice was simple, easy to understand and very effective. All in all, to anyone considering a PT – Nigel is first rate trainer and helps you to understand your body and it’s movement and workings a lot better which really is the key to effective and enjoyable training. Hurray for Nigel!

    As I complete yet another 6 week PT program with Nigel after an absence of nearly a year I feel re-energized and enthusiastic about taking over control of my own regular training, thanks to his commitment and understanding of my goals. Nigel delivers more than just a work-out during our 45 min sessions twice a week, he shares his wealth of “well-being” knowledge and provides absolute focus on my needs. He has worked with me through a long and painful shoulder problem and for the first time in over 12 months I can now really enjoy rebuilding strength in my upper body. His sessions are hugely varied, challenging and can be instantly adopted especially given the benefit of focus on core stability and posture. I now walk taller and can challenge myself to get the best from my own training. Skiing had never been easier after my previous sessions & this time I have significantly increased my overall energy levels. I will now make use of Nigel’s expertise to check back in regularly on my own progress and will not think twice to re-inject another series of sessions if I feel myself slipping or need further motivation. Nigel lives up to his claims and delivers as a great partner.

I enjoy my training sessions as I am able to take away with me simple but extremely effective exercises that I can practice at home as well as in the gym. Nigel is a great listener, very approachable and willing to go the extra mile to help achieve specific goals! A highly recommended P.T. Many thanks and keep up the good work!!!! :)

    I do enjoy exercising but always found it difficult to lose weight, get reasonably fit and be constant without making horrible sacrifices. I thought it was time to turn to a personal trainer and since the beginning I could tell Nigel was going to make the difference. He not only asked about my physical activity habits and goals, but also about the ways I personally feel motivated and confident, and integrated this information in his advice. He is very understanding and friendly. Every session is dynamic, fun and varied and at the end I feel very energised and ready for work. He has also gradually helped me to improve my dietary habits. I do notice constructive change in my physical condition without having to stop enjoying the things I like. I am very happy and grateful that the gym staff recommended him. It is encouraging to see that even other trainers turn to him for professional advice.

    I’m impressed how positive and optimistic Nigel is!

    It's amazing how much my body changed during the last 3 month since I’m working with Nigel, the shape of my body is much different and my muscles are much more toned. It feels like I discover a change in my body every day.
    I lost about 4 cm at my waist and other parts of my body are much slimmer. At work I now even wear gloves size S instead of M!

    I really like working with him, the sessions are never the same.
    Every session has at least one new exercise so it never gets boring and the next day I always have a little muscle ache that remains me that I had a good session the day before.

    I’m impressed how positive and optimistic Nigel is, definitely enough for the two of us.
    I hope one day his vision of my new me comes true.

    You leave the gym feeling stronger and healthier too.

    Working with Nigel, you look around at other trainers putting their customers through crazy exercises with big weights, strange positions and bulging veins.
    Then you look at what Nigel is teaching you - correct posture, correct breathing and the correct motion for you,
    after that any weight is heavy enough and you leave the gym feeling stronger and healthier too.
    Definitely the smartest trainer in my gym and helpful with advice even when he's not training you.

    Nigel is a very thoughtful and knowledgeable personal trainer.

    He tailors his sessions specifically to the needs of each individual.
    Very quickly in our first session Nigel honed in on the restricted movement I have in certain exercises and was able to identify some of the underlying principles as to why I was experiencing such restricted motion of movement.
    He was able to equip me with exercises and breathing techniques to help me realign some of the imbalances in my body.
    The training sessions were very considered, and I am truly grateful for the insights Nigel provided me.

  • Sophie H

    My sessions with Nigel helped me to understand the importance of correct form and technique, and that I could actually challenge myself as much, if not more, by focusing on these things rather than just trying to run fast or lift heavy.

    I was very impressed at how quickly and accurately he was able to identify my weaknesses, and teach me how to effectively correct these even just within the first session.

    I know that the things I'm learning will help me not only in improving my current strength and fitness levels, but also have positive impact on my long-term health and well-being.

He's deeply intelligent and analytical, and he’ll explain and demonstrate the elements and purpose of a movement so that you can put that knowledge to work as you learn how to do it. He used his many years of experience in weight training, bodybuilding martial arts, boxing, and dance, and he pulled all this expertise together to craft an integrated and exciting training program for me. So what did I learn and achieve over six months? I started out at one day per week, and made such noticeable progress that I increased to two sessions per week for the last two months of my stay. When I began I had almost no experience of training with weights and machines, and I was not particularly strong. But things that I could not even conceive of doing before, much less do, are now basic routines for me. These include: press-ups and pull-ups using the swiss ball to balance lower or upper body; using the balance ball for squats with increasingly heavy weights; and standing on the balance ball for rowing exercises as well as hamstring exercises. All of the strength I've developed over the last six months has made a massive difference in my capacity for other exercise, notably running. I’m certain that Nigel’s emphasis on core strength and stability has increased my endurance for longer and harder runs. Finally, training with Nigel has given me a completely new kind of self-confidence in my physical ability and strength. I would not have continued the sessions if I had not found myself making so much progress, and I attribute the improvement to Nigel’s skilful teaching. Rita

Nigel really helped me link up muscle groups, target and strengthen specific weak muscles and develop those exercises all within an hour. It has improved my core strength lots, helped my posture and given me the grounding to develop my leg strength quicker, I’ve already booked more sessions with Nigel!

Nigel is an inspired trainer. He has a sure knowledge of movement dynamics and muscle systems. He focuses intensely on his clients during their sessions, taking account of the big picture of the client’s movements and analysing parts of the movement in detail. In a way that is completely non-judgmental he’ll assess what the client can do, and he’ll reassess over time. He’s quick to perceive what needs correction, and he corrects on the spot, with precision and with clear explanations. He’s generous with his praise and sensitive with his corrections, but he is also unfailingly objective and honest, so that you can always know when you are doing something right and when you are on the wrong track with a movement. He’s amazingly creative on the floor, combining familiar exercises with new ones, or simple movements with more complex ones, so that the client can chart his or her own progress over time. He makes the progress interesting: not just more reps of this or heavier weights of that, but ever new combinations of machines, free weights, and core and balancing exercises, so that the client has a constant sense of discovery and even surprise. He’s inventive on the spot: if a machine or piece of equipment isn't available at one moment, he’ll improvise and create a more challenging alternative.
