Patrick is top drawer
Patrick was my personal trainer at Matt Roberts gym in London for around two and a half years.
The first thing to say is that "Patrick is top drawer".
He has a huge reservoir of knowledge and you can learn alot simply by just chatting to him between exercises.
He's improved my running from a technical viewpoint (thereby helping to lower my Parkrun times) and the programmes he puts together are always varied, challenging and well thought out.
He's also a "trainer for all seasons" as I discovered when I broke my collar bone in early 2017. As soon as I was able to resume light activity, Patrick initiated a series of targeted routines aimed at gently cajoling me back to full strength. This was very successful and I was delighted with being able to resume my other, wider sporting activities sooner rather than later.
Overall, Patrick is the best trainer I have known throughout a number of city gyms and I'm sure he will be a success in the Cayman Islands.
He worked on significantly improving my running technique.
Patrick took me on as an enthusiastic plodder in his late 40s who wanted to run better. By the time
he'd finished with me a couple of years later I had run 12 marathons, including Antarctica...twice.
The peak was the World Marathon Challenge - 7 marathons, 7 continents, in 7 days which I completed in
With Patrick's assistance, I massively improved my core strength, my quads and legs had
become enablers, and he worked on significantly improving my running technique. More importantly
than even that my life has changed through these experiences and for that I will be thankful for the
hours Patrick put into training me.
Next stop at 51 years old...2018 Marathon des Sables, can't wait!

Training with Patrick has been a revelation
When I first met him at Matt Roberts gym in London 4 years ago I was a middle-aged woman relentlessly gaining weight, decidedly out of shape and totally unfit. He introduced me to a whole new world of high intensity training using both body weight and weights to gradually build me up from the core outwards.
Even though I am in my late 50s I have progressively gained muscle mass, lost fat and a recent bone density scan showed my bones to be well above average! This I put down to Patrick's training. I now ski again and run and attend spin classes regularly.
He has transformed my life. He is a details man, so important when on the path of self-improvement and breaking old bad habits. His encouragement, in depth knowledge and kindness have kept me on the straight and narrow. I can wholeheartedly recommend Patrick as a very special personal trainer who is totally professional and incredibly knowledgeable whether one is trying to simply future proof oneself or indeed training for a triathlon or marathon.
We will miss him. Lucky Caymans!

I trained with Patrick for over five years...
...and enjoyed the wide variety and flexibility of his fitness programmes. I became stronger, fitter and lighter and our shared enthusiasm for sport and exercise meant we always had something to talk about.
Perhaps most of all, Patrick's good humour in listening to golf anecdotes speaks volumes.
I would recommend him to anyone.
I have never felt fitter
I have had PT sessions with Patrick twice a week for the last two years. He is an absolutely fantastic trainer. Not only has he developed PT sessions that have pushed me but he also has given me advice in relation to how I can fit in training outside the gym and regarding my nutrition. As a result, I have never felt fitter.
