Mobile Service in the Virginia Water area
At AchieveFit we’re all about the personal service.
We understand that each person has a different set of goals and what they are looking to gain through a personal training programme is unique.
That is why we approach fitness the way we do. We always start with a thorough and honest assessment where no assumptions are made. This involves a health and movement screen to ensure the risk of harm during training is kept to an absolute minimum.
This allows us to get to know our client and their individual needs. In doing this we can help set your short and long term goals and sculpt a fitness plan around your schedule and lifestyle.
Initial health and movement screen to ensure your well-being is our priority at all times.
We identify factors which could be preventing you from achieving your goals such as injuries, work related stress, lack of sleep etc. Once we have identified these factors we work with you to manage them.
Enables us to plan a training programme with positive yet realistic goals.
It gives us a start point from which to monitor your progression.
It allows us to understand why your goals are important to you and decide on the appropriate action needed to achieve these goals.
Experience - As a former Olympic Athlete with over 15 years' experience as a personal trainer I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to my profession.
Passion - I have a real passion for what I do and the experience and maturity to channel this passion into my clients' training programmes.
Care - My initial assessment of each and every client coupled with a firm belief that personal trainers have a duty of care towards those they are training.
Attitude - No ‘Sergeant Major’, bully boy attitude often associated with Personal Trainers.
Respect - You are in charge. I am here to support and guide you to make informed decisions.
Working in a small group, building friendships whilst motivating each other and achieving your fitness goals together can be so rewarding.
It costs less per session than an individual training session. More sessions for your money, leading to better results.
Small group sizes mean you still get the individual attention of a personal trainer but for a smaller cost.
My passion for fitness began through judo, the sport in which I competed from the age of 5 years old. My achievements in judo include competing for Great Britain in the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games, winning the World and European Championship at under 21 level, and European bronze medal at senior level.
Following my judo career, I completed a BTEC Higher National Diploma in the Science and Management of Health and Fitness, and began a career in Personal Training.
From 2002, I have worked at the Wentworth Club Limited, helping a wide range of clients achieve their goals, including fat loss, muscle gain, improved sports performance and injury rehabilitation. I have gained vast experience and knowledge, and believe in fitness and nutrition solutions that fit the unique needs of each client. I feel that constantly learning and evolving is paramount to giving my clients the best possible service. My recent certifications include the Functional Movement Screen Level 1, Strong First Kettlebell Instructor Level 1 and 2 and becoming a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach.
In April 2016 I launched AchieveFit, offering a mobile Personal and Small Group Training service, in and around the Virginia Water area.

For many years I found that all attempts to train and keep fit resulted in injury or set back. I could sense immediately that Ian had a clear understanding of what I wanted to achieve and at the same time his patient, sensible approach would ensure that I could avoid the issues that would usually interfere with my programme.
Throughout all of the training sessions that I have enjoyed with Ian, he has always shown the highest level of professionalism whilst providing the motivation that I have enjoyed.
Never willing to just do the same old routines, Ian continually demonstrates a creative approach whilst always open to new learning.
I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to anyone who is looking to enhance their fitness,build strength or recover from injury.
Ian is a true professional and has helped to transform me from super unfit to super fit. I started using Ian over five years ago. At the time I was badly affected by a degenerative joint illness that made it difficult for me to train and keep my muscle volume. A combination of a new medicine and regular training with Ian allowed me to start building my strength again. Each would ensure that I could avoid the issues that would usually interfere with my programme.
To begin with I could not do a single press-up or even hang from the bars for pull-ups. Ian gave me short term and long term goals and not only transformed me in terms of strength but also posture. He read up about my joint illness and spoke to a physiotherapist to make sure that he did not cause any damage. I can now do over 10 press-ups and pull ups and I have added 10 kilo of muscle mass.
Thank you Ian for transforming my life.
I’m an old rugby player, with old injuries. After a spinal operation some time back I needed to prepare myself for another operation... what a transformation!
Not only did I prepare for it, but with Ian's expertise, I sailed through it, had the operation and I'm now back in training... to be fit! 16 weeks after the latest operation, I’m fitter, stronger, and feeling great about my abilities.
I realised after years on inactivity with a poor back, I could have kept fit after all. Ian has bought back the strength I thought I had lost! Thanks Ian!!!
Just over a year ago my wife gave me 10 sessions with Ian as a birthday gift. Prior to starting with Ian the only exercise I did regularly was swim. Over the first 10 sessions Ian first looked at my flexibility, then moving on to more rigorous resistance exercises, followed by working on increasing endurance.
The 10 sessions are long over, but I have continued working with Ian.
Working with Ian has definitely toned up my body, my general health has improved, and as an added bonus my golf is better.
I plan to continue working with Ian as long as he is willing to tolerate me, and recommend him very highly to anyone who wants to improve their general wellbeing.
Looking for a personal trainer for a junior, high performance tennis athlete was going to be a challenge but we struck gold when we found Ian.
Knowing himself the pressures of top level sport has undoubtedly helped him train our son, devising a detailed program specifically for his needs - and making sure not to over train and adapting sessions as necessary in line with growth spurts, training blocks and tournaments etc.
Injury prevention is critical and the results speak for themselves. Since having Ian as his personal trainer our son has excelled on court and had minimal time out with injury.
Motivating a teenager at 7am to willingly train and achieve his full potential is a fabulous skill, which added to his excellent level of knowledge and experience really does make Ian a superb personal trainer who we wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
