About Qualifications Specialisms Location Reviews
I'm Arden, a personal trainer with a passion for empowering others to embrace their health and fitness journey. My path began in Sussex, where I discovered my calling to make a difference in people's lives.

Equipped with a nursing science degree from the University of Brighton, I bring a deep understanding of the body's functions to my practice. My years of experience providing compassionate care to patients have honed my knowledge of anatomy and physiology, giving me a well-informed perspective on how to optimise health and fitness.

Through personal training, I merge my expertise with my joy of teaching to create a well-rounded approach to fitness. I tailor workouts to suit each individual's needs, ensuring that you not only achieve your goals but also understand the science behind your progress.

As a member of the LGBT+ community, I understand the importance of representation and visibility in the fitness industry. I'm here to show that everyone deserves the opportunity to prioritise their health, regardless of identity. I also have a deep understanding of both the barriers to engaging in health and fitness, and the adaptations that can be made to make it more accessible.

In my sessions, I empower you to take ownership of your health by providing you with the knowledge and tools that you need to succeed. Whether it's explaining the benefits of certain exercises or debunking common fitness myths, I strive to demystify the world of health and fitness and to create a safe and supportive environment for you to reach your fitness goals.

Arden is a skilled, knowledgeable and personable PT who is able to understand how difficult building a positive relationship with fitness can be. I am someone who is neurodivergent and very much struggles with anxiety, I found that Arden was able to meet me where I am at both in terms of ability and confidence to create a program and provide guidance that is suited to me and my needs. Working with Arden I am able to progress at a rate that I am comfortable with, while being supported and encouraged to expand my comfort zone.

Arden has a vast knowledge of health and fitness and is able to use their experience working as a nurse and educator to work with a science based approach to fitness and keep me well informed of the reasons behind what I am doing in the gym.

Arden has listened and adapted to my feedback as an individual about what I want more or less of, what sort of things I struggle with, and what I find fun. I feel supported, informed, and challenged appropriately.
