About me

My background

I have almost 10 years of experience in the sport, health and fitness industry with numerous qualifications to back that up. My C.V. includes working with numerous professional sporting teams including Salford Red Devils (Strength and Conditioner), Lancashire County Cricket Club and Manchester City Football Club (Sports Science Testing), England Lacrosse (Consultant), England Fell Runners (Biomechanical Assessment), Sale Sharks Rugby Union (Shoulder Isokinetic Screening).

Alongside my work in the elite sporting field I have been training private clients from home and from a variety of different facilities. I have trained everyone from pregnant women to marathon runners and power lifters. No matter what your goal is I am confident I have a) seen it before and b) have the expertise to help you to achieve it.

My qualifications include a BSc in Applied Sports Science, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, SAQ Trainer and numerous other fitness and sporting qualifications. To ensure I am abreast of all of the developments in the industry I am also continuing to better my knowledge base and am currently 2/3rds of the way through an MSc in Strength and Conditioning and am close to completing my UKSCA accreditation.

This blend of sporting and health and fitness-related qualifications allows me to develop innovative and effective programmes to suit each and every individual.

Our stories

I first met Chris when I was playing professional Rugby League for the then, Salford City Reds. I was immediatley impressed by his knowledge and enthusiasm for Sports Science. After making some great gains under his guidance I have continued my relationship with him. He has always been available for advice or to take me through workouts. Chris is certainly someone I recommend and know can help you.

Since training with Chris I feel more energized and far more productive throughout the day. My fitness levels have increased dramatically and i’m a lot happier with my overall health and wellbeing.

I worked with Chris as a player during my time at the Salford City Reds and found him to be an extremely knowledgeable person. As a Strength and Conditioner his player management and communication skills were excellent and this resulted in motivating players to perform the well researched training programs he constructed. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

Personal training was not something that I thought I’d ever enjoy, but after signing up for sessions with CB Conditioning to get prepared for the swimwear section of a national beauty pageant, I found that I was motivated and never felt silly or tormented. The sessions are intense but relaxed, and you leave knowing that you’ve worked hard and are those few steps closer to your goal each time. Highly recommended, whether your goal is to improve fitness, rehabilitate yourself after injury, or get ready for the beach!
