After five years working as a Personal Trainer it still fills me with great happiness and pride to see clients achieve their exercise and training goals.
My approach to personal training is both varied and versatile, having worked with clients of all backgrounds and abilities. I have a passion for nutrition, weight loss and enjoy assisting clients with improving mobility and injury recovery. For those who want to get fitter and stronger, I am experienced in personalised boxing and resistance training. I have extensive experience teaching a vast array of classes including indoor cycling, HIIT and Body Pump to name just a few!

Senior Manual Therapist
Since graduating from a very popular University in Poland and gaining a degree in Physiotherapy, Rafal has worked in the public and private sectors in a variety of specialisms, mainly neuromuscular, musculosceletal and peadiatric.
Rafal’s work activities include: physiotherapy for sports clubs players, teaching corrective exercises to children in nurseries and schools, leading therapy sessions for disabled adults and children and treating a variety of private patients.
With over 16 years of extensive experience it has brought many spectacular successes in treating and improving even the most complex conditions including stroke and celebral palsy in children.
As a sports therapist my primary passion is around sporting injuries and the strength, fitness, wellbeing and resilience of each individual in their entirety.
I have recently had experience of working within a professional football team at a premier league, working with the first team and youth teams down to under 9’s. During this I gained experience and an interest in acute injury management, from soft tissue and massage intervention right through to personal training and strength and conditioning techniques to prevent re-injury.
I use a multitude of treatment techniques from Acupuncture to manual therapy, massage, strength and conditioning and functional rehabilitation.
I also use massage and personal training techniques alongside my other treatment techniques to ensure the highest level of customer care and service is undertaken.
My personal interest sits within the lower limb and considering all injuries from sporting to occupational injuries.
I have recently also expanded my skill mix to further include wellness and coaching techniques to improve employees engagement, with ergonomics intervention and wellness behaviour within our clinic in the foreign office Westminster. This allows me to see how patients and staff are interacting with their work environment and how the equipment we use and the postures we adopt, influence our ability to function pain free.
This is a very exciting and new element to my practice.
I have been a qualified Personal Trainer for 10 years. I absolutely love working with a wide variety of people who make the job interesting and exciting.
I am driven by the progression each individual makes and love incorporating new exercises into my training regimes.
