I have been training clients for over 20 years. I specialise in working with pre and post op clients who have special needs. As I am sports massage qualified I thrive off helping clients who are injured, using sports massage to relieve symptoms then offering specific training to aid recovery. My experience lies in martial arts and strength training, offering the only H.I.T facility in the North of England. Here we offer brief but intense workouts that no other trainers can offer.

I began training in the summer of 2015. As I experimented with my nutrition and training I soon began noticing small changes. I started getting stronger, more muscular and fitter. This was an amazing feeling and I realised that if I can change my body in such a positive way then I can help others do the same. So I started various courses to improve my knowledge. This became a passion for me and led me to apply for a position at Axis Fitness.
While at Axis I have gained my level 3 Advanced PT, GP Referral and Level 3 & 4 massage, to name a few. During these courses I have learnt about various training methods and the effects they have on the body, as well as how correct and incorrect nutrition can affect the body. I now apply this knowledge of training methods and nutrition when coaching clients and during my own training. I hope to use my qualifications in sports massage to aid client recovery times and prevent the injury of athletes and the general public, particularly in rugby, as I play this sport at county level. I am always studying and doing research to keep up with the ever-changing fitness industry and to further expand my knowledge.
New to the fitness industry, I have a passion for exercise and hope to help anyone and everyone to the best of my abilities with my qualifications below.
- Level 2 in Fitness Instructor / Circuits Instructor
- Level 3 Personal Trainer / Kettlebell Instructor
- Level 3 GP Referral Instructor / Fit4Boxing Instructor

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a person make changes to their lifestyle and achieve their goals.
Coming to fitness later in life…over 35. I have experienced first hand the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle, by having lost, regained and lost significant weight for a second time. I understand the journey a person takes to make hard changes to their life, to break the bad habits and form new ones. I can relate to clients who are unhappy and are desperate to make positive changes, having been there and done it all myself.
I am the newest qualified Instructor at Axis Fitness. It seemed a logical path to follow as I have been training at Axis Fitness for the last 10 years and whilst I manage the business in partnership with Steve, it’s great to get out from behind the keyboard and onto the gym floor.
I have a good understanding of nutrition and I am the Queen of meal prep! When they say abs are made in the kitchen, they are not kidding. I love strength training and no, it won’t make you ladies butch and manly – it will define you and give you great shape. I train with experienced Nautilus coaches, who allow me to work on my own goals and strive to be in the best condition I possibly can be.
Axis Fitness gives me the opportunity to meet so many nice members and play a part in helping them achieve their goals. Say Hi to me next time you are in.
I began my path to becoming a personal trainer around five to six years ago when I realized how passionate I was for health and exercise and how I could implement it in to helping others reach their fitness goals. I started off as a member of Axis Fitness and over time slowly began working as part of the team as I progressed with my education and knowledge around exercise. It very quickly became a passion as I began to train clients and engage on a personal level with people, offering as much support as I could. I now operate out of two gyms and am only hoping to expand and better myself both through work and personally to be the best version of myself.

Great gym, fantastic team of skilled instructors who are always on hand to help and advise. Highly recommend!
Great gym with great staff. Never really been sure what I am meant to be doing in the gym but the staff here gave me a programme to follow and advice on what I should be eating. Anyone worried about starting up need not a very welcoming friendly atmosphere
Excellent team excellent instructors excellent equipment! I haven’t felt this comfortable going in to a gym on my own... I now really enjoy the gym ... definitely recommend ... brilliant!
Surely the most organised and best equipped gym in the Newcastle area.
Been a member here since August now after joining on a years pt program and getting great results dropped over 4 stone and counting feeling stronger after every session trained with Steve Sean Paul and Al they all push you too achieve your max potential and always there to offer advice and answer your questions great gym great staff.
After being diagnosed with two badly prolapsed disks in my spine, two doctors independantly said that spinal surgery was the only thing that would get me out of pain. Steve Davis prepared a specific exercise program for me and I am now almost 100% ok. Highly recommended
Brilliant gym. Nautilus resistance training machines are the best in the world and can produce the fastest results. Steve Davis is one of the most knowledgeable people I have met with regard to exercise physiology and nutrition; using this to create practical and achievable goals. Loving the new gym!
For someone who hated gyms and said would never go in one I love it. Fab gym..friendly and very helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoy my workouts and what's more the whole family goes. Great variety of equipment to use.
