All About Fitness

About Me

I have a very flexible approach to training using skills and knowledge from professional qualifications as well as experiences gained from football, athletics, kick boxing, martial arts, badminton, table tennis & ski-ing.

What Can I Do For You?

I recognise exercising/training as a primary tool for improving self esteem, well being, mental health, confidence and losing inches in those unwanted places, but more importantly as a way of having fun whilst also stepping up or fulfilling a challenge. I have extensive experience of training individuals and groups. I enjoy creating exercise schedules/programmes to meet every clients individual needs and goals in a variety of environments. As a good motivator, I aim to make exercising challenging, enjoyable and rewarding. I am committed to personal development having just completed a BSc degree in Applied Sports Science at Northumbria University, a Boxercise Personal Trainer Course and GP Referral.

In a panic because of dire lack of physical preparation, we contacted Richie four months prior to climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa, in the hope that he would be able to provide the fitness support we needed to make our dream a reality. With Richie’s support, encouragement and expertise, we successfully achieved our goal of summiting one of the highest walkable mountains in the world, on New Years Day 2010. We fully believe that without Richie’s significant imput, both physically and mentally, the likelihood of our achieving this would have been significantly less likely. We enjoy the training and excercise so much (most of the time-and after the event!) that we have decided to keep working with Richie and are currently planning our next challenge! Thanks so much, Nikki and Gemma My name is Vanessa Mclaughlan, im 22 years old and i have been working with Richard on a weekly basis for almost 1 year! In this time i have trained on a one to one basis and with a fellow collegue training on a tuesday after work. Richard comes to my place of work and trains me on site, he is easily contacted and will travel to meet mine and others requirements for the training programme, Richard set out several different training sessions for me as an individual in order to target the areas that i informed him id like to improve on, the training was not only fun and intersting but also very effective and im very pleased with the difference in my physical performance compared to prior meetin with Richard! I would strongly recommend Richards services to both men and women and believe that he will deliver the same high standards he has to me. Kind regards Vanessa Mclaughlan "I have been training with Ritchie now for approximately 6 months and I know it sounds like a bit of a cliche but this man has transformed my life - well my body at least! I was probably the most least motivated person on earth when it came to working out, making the same New Years resolution year after year, joining a different gym each January for a bit of variety but all ending with the same result - Failure. I think one of the most important things you have to consider when using a Personal Trainer is your relationship with them. You have to feel comfortable in their presence and have faith in what they are telling you will work. This means setting realistic and achievable targets but at the same time still making them a challenge which is exactly what Ritichie has done for me. If you don't believe me - ask my wife who now says she has her very own Action Man!" Peter Elsender, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE27 0BF I realised I needed help when I ran up the stairs to answer the office phone & was out of breath. I spoke to a friend of mine who put me in touch with Richard King four months ago & I have never looked back since with his motivation I now train three times a week, given up smoking & run regular. I won’t tell you it has been easy, there has been times when, should I say, have cursed Richard but he has broad shoulders & he knows my limits. Every week I do something different such as Boxercise, Kettle Bells, Circuit Training, so it does not become repetitive & boring like the “good old gym” I am gradually changing shape, I am much stronger & feel 100% fitter. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a kick start to a healthier life style & I can honestly say you will enjoy his company, motivation & drive.
