, Tom started his career as a sportsman and coach enjoying the physical challenges of competing and inspiring the next generation.
Soon that sporting passion led him to the outdoors from which he never looked back. However the interest in training and outdoor challenge came together when leading clients to Himalayan peaks in Nepal and Tibet.
In 2014 Tom suffered from Chronic Fatigue or M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). Causing him to leave his position at the National outdoor centre in Scotland. The battle over the next few years was significant and highlighted the importance of balancing training, rest, work and life. This new outlook comes across in every programme he puts together giving clients a healthier view on training and recovery.
He now works for the Ministry of Defence as a Specialist Training Instructor. Outside work you can find him taking part in an adventure fitness club challenge or climbing in the mountains.
