Founder, Head Coach, Strength & Conditioning Coach, CF LVL 1



I am the founder, owner, head coach and janitor..... of Ludus Gym.

Growing up in Monmouth, there was always a lack of high end, professional knowledge in the local fitness community. Throughout the last 10 years I have made it my mission to work with the best coaches in the UK and seek out the information and knowledge to make a lasting change in peoples lives.

My fitness journey started as a teenager with low self-confidence and anxiety, the gym was the vehicle I used to build my self confidence and teach myself through hard work and discipline, that there is nothing in this world that cant be achieved.


Since then I have-

  • Won a 3rd place at North west Men's Physique Bodybuilding UKBFF 2015

  • Won 1st Place Southend's Strongest Man 2018

  • 3rd Place Ludus Strongest Man 2019 (Whilst running the competition)

  • 1st Place Caerphilly's Strongest Man 2019

  • 2020 set a world record by climbing Mt. Snowdon with 100kg on his back. (Raising over £7000 for mental health charities)

  • My next challenge is to qualify for the Crossfit Games


Throughout These achievements I have studied for-

  • Fitness Instructor level 2

  • Strength & Conditioning lvl3

  • Olympic Weightlifting Lvl 1

What sets me apart from other coaches is that I am the perfect blend of a theorist and a practitioner. 

I started Ludus Gym to offer everyone the opportunity of becoming happy, strong and healthy.


Are you looking to take your training to the next level or to regain your fitness?


 I have helped all demographics overcome plateaus and reach a physical and mental level of strength they didn't even know was possible.


I want to hear from you!

No matter what your current state of fitness, make the best decision of your life and get in touch.
