My name is Dermot and I'm a level 3 PT based in Esher and South West London. Since joining the Army Reserve as a light cavalry soldier some 7 years ago, fitness has been a huge passion of mine. After spending a couple of years building strength I soon needed something else and luckily came across Calisthenics.
Since then I rarely pick up any weights and have taught myself a high standard of bodyweight control through calisthenics, including bar work and handstands. As well as this I also enjoy running, swimming, climbing and team sports, basically anything that keeps me moving!
I have a huge passion for the environment and conservation and am co founder of an environmental group called https://plogolution.com/ We hold plogging (running and walking whilst picking up rubbish) all across the UK as well as setting up plogging clubs in Primary Schools nationwide.
I also volunteer with Veterans For Wildlife and have deployed several times to South Africa on different conservation projects, supporting local authorities and training Anti Poaching Units so they are in a better place to protect key species like Rhino and Elephant.
With the exception of home visits all of my sessions take place outside in nature so you really do get a sense of healthy body, healthy mind and healthy planet.
Each individual I work with is unique, and therefore I develop a structured and effective training plan which will suit their needs and fitness goals. There are three main areas I focus on:
This high intensity training is a fantastic way to get you in shape fast. It focusses on bursts of high intensity exercise followed by a lower intensity period.
Want to work on your dead hangs or even master that elusive handstand? The calisthenics movement is fast growing and I can help you to master the techniques and be rewarded with the strength and flexibility results this training delivers.
Whether you want that rippling six pack or just want to be able to carrying all the food shopping in one go without your arms dropping off, then strength training may be for you! From different press-up variations to developing leg strength to help with sprints, there are a wide range of available exercises.
