What should you expect?
Expert, precision coaching and a no-stone-left-unturned approach. Our passionate, dedicated Perform personal training team comprises of team GB age group athletes, natural movement specialists, world champion powerlifters, and international level strength coaches with degrees in strength and conditioning.
“He who chases two rabbits catches neither.” If increasing your personal performance through expert coaching is your primary goal, all others – such as fat loss or aesthetics - must necessarily come second. When you split your focus between two objectives, competitive inhibition usually occurs and you end up achieving neither.
Having said that, unless your goal necessarily involves carrying a specific amount of body fat, you should expect to become optimally lean and functionally muscular through Perform training and nutrition protocols.
Perform is a training programme that is naturally tailored to your personal goals. However, it’s always underpinned by extensive postural and movement analysis and optimisation – this is the basis of achieving any performance related goal.
Examples of Perform training goals and those we work with include:
Mobility, flexibility and injury rehab
- Mobility, flexibility and injury rehab are necessarily the foundation upon which optimised performance is built.
If you’re recovering from an injury, or if aches, pains, musculo-skeletal restriction and poor posture are holding you back from engaging in exercise or holding you back from progressing, this aspect of your Perform programme will be paramount.
Often working together with physiotherapists, soft tissue therapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, and our yoga team, we’ve achieved success in returning a range of athletes to success, even from very serious injury.
Strength and performance
- Sports / athletic performance: for example football, cycling, running, swimming, rugby, tennis, snow sports such as skiing or snowboarding, triathlon, powerlifting, 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon, strongman, track & field, Tough Mudder
Skills based training, natural movement, and functional training
- Examples include: plyometrics, functional fitness, calisthenics, natural movement (Animal Flow, MovNat, Ido Portal style training) focus on movement efficiency, skill, speed and grace
Lab testing (optional)
- Bloodwork / lab testing: these can be specific nutrient and electrolyte imbalances, hormonal imbalances, biomarkers for bone and muscular health, metabolic health, energy production and fatigue, stress and immune function, and toxic elements

Does it work?
“I’m a cyclist and have been working towards a goal of competing in a 7 day 850km race across the Alps. When I went to visit Optimised Personal Wellness I was suffering from huge slumps in energy in the day and struggling to have the energy to train regularly and keep my weight low which is very important for a cyclist. The nutrition plan that Optimised gave me allowed me to loose body fat whilst increasing strength & fitness. At the same time I was able to maintain my weight without feeling hungry or getting energy slumps. In the race it’s self I performed much better than anticipated, something I couldn’t have achieved without the help of Optimised Personal Wellness.”
