I found NMS (Norman) a year ago during a 'google' search and I can honestly say without exaggeration that Norman has totally changed the way I look at fitness, increased my flexibility, strength and improved my muscle definition.
I had a breast cancer diagnosis and 6 months of chemotherapy this time last year. I was tired but still wanted to keep active and feel good. Norman came to the house weekly and did bespoke workout sessions on the garden that were fantastic..just right for me.
I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction last Christmas and again Norman worked really hard with me building my upper body strength so that I went into the operating theatre strong. The operation was a huge success and the surgeon commented on the condition of my muscles that helped my recovery.
Since the operation Norman has worked patiently with me to bring me back to full strength. I am now back riding, running, lifting weights and hill training and the feel the strongest I have been for many years. Norman has even been to watch me ride my horse and has since developed exercises to improve my riding position.
I owe so much of my recovery to Norman, he is reliable, professional and makes every session different and suited to my needs.
I am also impressed with the amount of medical and professional sporting and food knowledge he has, often signposting me to websites and other bits of useful information.

I started working with Norman after he was recommended to me initially for some sports massage treatment. I needed to sort out some Calf muscle and Achilles issues I had as a result of running injuries and it was during a couple of sports massage sessions that we discussed what he does with regard to tailored personal training. We subsequently drew up a plan of fitness coaching, initially built around strength training for running, which has since developed into total body strength sessions, yet still with building running resilience and power at its core.

 After several weeks of coaching, I have seen an improvement in overall fitness and a definite reduction in the aches and pains I used to suffer from running. Advice on health and nutrition is discussed between sets of exercises and the training plan is constantly tweaked as I progress. The added accountability of needing to turn up on time for a PT session is also a benefit in a busy life, where without that person waiting for you, it’s all too easy to skip a training session.

 I would recommend NMS to anyone serious about getting fit.
