About
I am an international and Olympic sprinter who specialises in the sprint and hurdles events. Having competed in an array of international fixtures including the 2012 Olympic Games, 2010 Commonwealth Games, World championships, volunteering in the 2022 Birmingham commonwealth games as a performer, and African Championships, as well as training at the Senegal high performance training centre for 2 years on an Olympic Scholarship, I know how to bring a whole new dynamic to the training game.

I hold a level 2 UKA coach licence, level 3 personal training licence as well as gym based boxing, circuit training, spin licence and a level 4 diploma in nutrition. I am the reigning Berkshire County champion for 100m as well as the silver medalist in the 200m. I am also part of the Reading AC club record 4x100m team which put us as the fastest club team in the UK, and won Reading AC’s coach of the year in 2023.

My training style is completely different from others you may have seen and is guaranteed to get results, whilst remaining challenging and enjoyable at all times. I cater for everyone from beginners to elite sport performers and push everyone to their limits. I have produced athletes that have competed and won gold, silver and bronze medal through club, county, English schools, premier league and national level. Contact me to start training to a different level today.

Despite having only had two lessons with Ibrahim, I'm already impressed by his expertise in speed and agility training. He's proven to be a knowledgeable and motivating coach, and I'm confident in his ability to prepare me for my upcoming fight. Ibrahim's passion for what he does is evident, and I'm grateful to have found such a dedicated trainer.

Ibrahim is an exceptional trainer who has greatly enhanced my performance as a kickboxer. His deep knowledge of speed and agility training has been invaluable in preparing me for my upcoming fight. I'm thrilled to have found him; his passion for his work shines through, and he consistently motivates me to push my limits. Ibrahim's unwavering dedication ensures that I am fully prepared for my upcoming amateur fight in K1. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking top-notch training in explosive workouts.

My husband and I are week 3 working with Ibrahim, each session has been excellent, a complete different approach to strength training than anything we have ever experienced, mixed in with some aerobic training. We both have different goals but it’s great to be able to accommodate both of us in one session helping us motivate each other and stay focussed. We look forward to continuing working with Ibrahim and seeing results. His knowledge and expertise on fitness and technique is exceptional, and his personal attitude to continue to drive and get the best out of us at each session is inspiring. Each session we have had comments from other members of the gym which competes the session with a sense of achievement and gratitude. We highly recommend Ibrahim.

My fitness and strength has improved massively… He is kind, when u can’t do an exercise he tells you how to do it or how to improve and get better. My stamina has got very good since I started training with him.

Ibrahim is not only an amazing coach but also a positive role model to his young athletes. He is great at giving motivational pep talks, therefore inspiring athletes to push beyond their limits. Ibrahim has been coaching my daughter for over 3 years in sprints and hurdles and has demonstrated consistent dedication and effective coaching techniques, contributing positively to my daughter's progress in both. Thanks Ibrahim ☺️

We know Ibrahim for 2 years already. My daughter started having him as her running coach (sprint) since then and I’m very happy to say that she couldn’t have better coach for this purpose. The technics he use to coach are amazing and I’m sure my daughter wouldn’t be where she is today, if she hasn’t have him. I highly recommend Ibrahim…. with no doubt!

I had the privilege of being the first athlete ibrahim took on, and the 3 or so years i’ve spent with him have been incredibly successful. He has huge knowledge, being ex-olympic, and delivers amazing, insightful sessions while giving great advice on not only sport but nutrition and other life lessons. He continues to push me constantly, very committed and devoted and has led me to scholarships and beyond - amazing coach amazing man

Ibrahim is a fantastic personal trainer/coach. He cares about all individuals giving one to one feedback as well as group feedback. Under him giving up isn't a choice. He's also an extremely enjoyable coach with a unique and grasping style.

Ibrahim is a great guy who is genuinely interested in your wellbeing. He is committed and drives his trainees to the limit. He knows specialised sports techniques for strength and conditioning. Being an Olympian he understands the competition psyche. He teaches at all levels young and old. His athletes have gone onto win medals at club, county and nationals. He ticks all boxes of a personal trainer.
