All round body fitness & tone


I always been involved in sport from a very early age and have enjoyed every minute of it. I have been very lucky that whichever school I attended had very good PE teachers who were able to give me excellent tutelage. I played practically every sport at school and for the school including Basketball, football, rugby, cricket, badminton, and athletics.

I had various trials to play some of the above at much higher levels however my first taste of professionalism was when I had trials for Manchester city football club as a teenager even though I did not get taken on and was disappointed, I learned it’s not just talent that you need to succeed, it also takes hard work.

I became involved in martial arts first becoming involved with Judo then Shotokan Karate, discovering how to use the Chinese weapon Nunchaku but my favourite martial art was Thai Boxing which I eventually went on to compete in the ring I still do Thai Boxing to this this day for fitness. It was about this time when I really got into the fitness and the training methodology behind the gym and what it can do for fitness goals, I was hooked. I went to use what I had learnt in the Gym to compete in several Cross-training competitions across the region an UK.

Behind the scenes I was still playing Basketball and once again I did apply myself to this sport which involved putting in the extra hours that nobody sees both in and out of the gym. I was rewarded with a professional contract with Oldham Celtics basketball club. This was one of my proudest moments because at same time my brother Earl Barrett ex professional footballer and England international was also playing for Oldham football team and both teams were doing well. We got into several local newspapers, and I was interviewed on National TV.I had the pleasure of playing for Oldham Celtics in a European competition we played Monico in France.

That’s about it, I decided that I would put all the above to good use and give something back to sport help people get something out of fitness and wellbeing as have done so at the age of 55 I have also completed my Personal Trainer qualification to add weight to my knowledge and experience.
