Craig’s passion for health and fitness started during the countless hours he committed to his own rehabilitation and recovery from a long-term knee injury in 2000. After a completing a 2 year apprenticeship in professional football in the UK, he went on to secure qualifications in Personal Training & Nutrition.

At 23, Craig was recruited as the youngest ever Regional Manager for the largest independent Personal Training company in the UK. Within 18 months, he was promoted to Divisional Manager, where he  managed and mentored a team of 90+ Personal Trainers across 25 leading health clubs.

In 2011, Craig was a Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach to the main cast of actors in the Hollywood movie, The Hobbit. With the actors wearing costumes weighing up to 50kg for 12 hours a day, Craig’s role was to build their strength, fitness and endurance to enable them to be able to work to their best and stay injury-free.

After this prestigious role, Craig returned home to pursue his life-long dream of opening his very own Private Gym in Manchester. To this day, the gym has been a huge success and Craig recently launched a mobile app (lumiNutri) which helps people track their food and lifestyle in a healthy, sustainable way.

“As a proactive director I am always looking at ways to reward and motivate my staff to produce positive results. Since working with Craig the office is so much more vibrant and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that absenteeism is now non-existent. Craig is one of the best investments my company has ever made.”

“Through sessions in the gym and a nutrition plan, Craig helped me lose 4.7% body fat, 9.2lbs in weight and 4 inches from my waist in 4 weeks. He has a great way of making training challenging but fun at the same time and Craig’s personal commitment to keeping me motivated was second to none.”
