From a young age, MJ struggled with his appearance, being tall and very thin, always having issues maintaining and gaining weight. He decided that rather than focus on it, it was time to act upon it.

He soon realised that the banking industry background he had worked so hard towards wasn’t where his future lay and that his real passion was fitness. He began his fitness instructor training aged 27, and became a full-time personal trainer with Soho Gyms in Manchester in 2013, moving to Bannatyne’s Health clubs in 2015 and then Gymbox in 2019

MJ has over 6 years experience working with the LGBT community and creating a safe space where people can be pushed hard to reach their goals. He is available on a freelance basis working from Gymbox Covent Garden, London
