About
Born in Germany I started playing football at the age of 4 and from the ages of 8-18 played for various academies such as Bayer Leverkusen in Germany as well as a 6 year stint at West Ham United here in London.

Outside of Football I also used to get involved in other sports when I could such as boxing, kickboxing as well as Track and Field

After suffering a severe knee injury and not being offered a new contract, I decided to move to the United States in order to continue playing football whilst studying.

Nowadays I work as a Personal Trainer and Football coach and have been lucky enough to still play semi professional football and do Sports Modelling on the side.

Having suffered with knee pains ever since my surgery and working with professional strength and conditioning coaches I started looking more and more into functional training methods as I felt like including some of these exercises was really helping me feel better as well as stay in athletic shape.

Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to share the methods that have helped me with others.

Over the last 6 months, Nigel has done a fantastic job helping me enjoy training and fitness again.
He has achieved this by both being a pleasure to train and chat with and by having in-depth health and fitness knowledge which always keeps our sessions varied and challenging.
Nigel has been patient to take the time to develop and adapt sessions that help me meet my fitness goals but that also manage old injuries. Having suffered his own knee injury, he has passed on a lot of wisdom through our sessions, leading to my knee being more stable than it has in the last 15 years.
I didn’t think I would ever look forward to early morning training sessions but somehow Nigel has made me enjoy getting up and out for an hour of hard work!
I highly recommend Nigel to anyone looking for a PT who knows his stuff and is also top guy!

After a long covid 18-month slump, I was struggling to get back to any decent level of fitness, suffering from all sorts of ailments and minor injuries due to not being able to exercise for such a long time.
In comes Nigel, who has, with great patience, helped me get stronger with weekly sessions. He’s attentive and very knowledgeable, always checking how I’ve been feeling at the beginning of each session and tailoring the routine to suit specific needs.
It’s been great, and I couldn't recommend him enough. Boxing tends to be the highlight of my day!
Did I mention he also trains my son?!

Hate to review this guy, in a good way though, as we want him all to ourselves.... I have been on the football and training circuit for over 10 years... This is arguably one of the most committed, dedicated, professional and HIGHLY talented coach/trainer you will ever have the pleasure of meeting and working with... A man with real morals and of a genuine nature.

I have worked with so many coaches/trainers for my son over the years, Nigel has been the best by far. We will never leave him... Can't recommend him highly enough.

Nigel has been coaching my son in one-on-one football for a year. It has been a great experience, and as a result, my son is making excellent progress. Nigel is caring, kind, knowledgeable, and always very helpful!

Nigel is a very thoughtful coach he thinks hard about which different exercises suit you. He knows when to push you and when you’ve had enough and is also a good person to talk to.

My son trains with Nigel. He works him really hard but builds him up too. He comes home exhausted but happy. Highly recommend.

Nigel has been training my son for the last 12 months and we have seen a major improvement in his football skills. It was actually the first time that I heard him saying that he wanted to rest after training :) And that is because Nigel doesn't just cover the technique very well, he is also preparing him physically holistically.
Last but not least his commitment to his coachees is very clear, always on time, always sending us reminders... A highly recommended coach, thanks Nigel!

Nigel is a very cool, clam and collective coach with a great attention to detail. He brings so much to the team with his dedication, football knowledge and hard work ethic. He can never do enough for the boys and treats them all equally which had helped install an amazing team spirit. He is friendly and approachable which makes communicating with Nigel an absolute pleasure. My son has really got a lot out of his one on one sessions with him and that’s due to his commitment and dedication to building a strong relationship with all of his players. Great coach and a great guy!
