About

a few words about me

Read My Story

“My name is Philip Harding and I have a genuine curiosity with what makes us strong as individuals, both physically and mentally ”

A bit about me. I love reading, researching and having a healthy and active mind. I equally like to stay physically strong by training weights, boxing and doing cardio outdoors in my spare time.  I am a people person who gets a real kick out of seeing those around me succeed. This sometime means a tough love approach to help people reach their full potential. This approach works wonders as I have seen my clients grow as individuals and kick some serious goals, these include:

  • win body building competitions
  • compete in marathons,
  • get “wedding ready,”
  • regain pre pregnancy bodies
  • prepare for boxing matches

I have a diverse range of clients with different needs, I don’t adopt a “one size fits all approach,” I believe in a tailored program that get the best results possible for the individual. This can include small group sessions, one-on-one sessions, diets, programs and Body Building competition preparation.  If you have the vision and the drive there is nothing, we can’t achieve together.
