Chris has been a part of the Better Body Group team since our humble beginnings in the spare room of a lawnmower shop (a lot has changed!). Over the past 10 years he has conducted over 11000 personal training sessions and classes making him one of the UK’s experienced trainers.
Chris is the Co-Owner of the Better Body Group and when he is not helping you to achieve your weight loss goals he is striving to expand the better body group into more world class fitness facilities.
Back in 2007 Chris completed his degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield University and went on to qualify as a National strength and conditioning coach, gaining his CSCS with the NSCA.
Chris’s work has since been featured in the likes of the Daily Telegraph, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, Evening Standard, BBC, BBC radio as well as a contributing to a range of national health and fitness magazines.
Chris is also a licensed Thai Boxer, and spends most of his spare time training Muay Thai, and Krav Maga, hitting pads and generally getting beaten up in the ring!
Having spent the last 9 years building BBG alongside business partner Jason Crow, the award winning pair are now concentrating on building new centres and training courses across the UK, providing opportunities for trainers that fit the BBG mould.

Rob C, 60
“Over recent years had become very disillusioned with lifting weights and had become very stale in my approach. My workouts became monotonous and a chore with little or no improvement to my physique. After turning 60 I decided to find some way of revitalising and motivating myself which is when I approached BBS. Over recent years I had used the services of a number of personal trainers from some large gym organisations all of whom appeared reasonably good until I met this bunch. They take the concept of personal training to a different level. I asked them to start me from scratch and design a training and nutrition programme that would strip excess fat, get me fit whilst trying to maintain some shape. Over the initial 6 weeks I dropped over a stone (pics above) with my waist falling 2 trouser sizes. We set no time goals or weight targets as my training has become a way of life which will continue indefinitely My ‘diet’ is very different with more protein based foods and good carbs but this is so easy I haven’t reverted back to old habits of pasta and bread. I still have a decent drink and the odd kebab! Over the last 9 months I have trained with most of the PT guys, all of which have been outstanding in their knowledge, professionalism and above all motivational approach to training. Everyone has their favourites, mine just happens to be Chris, who is actually one of the most charming and likeable people I know. Long may it continue!”
“I have been a member of BBS for just over a year now. Having joined many gyms in the past this is by far the longest time I have regularly attended a gym. I have been continually impressed by how friendly and supportive everyone is. The sessions are always different and tailored to my specific needs. I am thrilled with the results I have achieved and could not have done it without BBS! Chris is also one of the most inspirational people I know. So if you are looking to join a gym BBS is the only choice!”
