Biography

I am a former International athlete. I used to compete as a track athlete, my chosen events were both the 200 metres and 400 metres.

My career ended prematurely, due to injuries, thus I went into Personal Training, Sports and Injury Massage and a Reiki Practitioner. I've been Instructing and Personal Training since 1997.

I enjoy training people and assisting them with their fitness goals, fat loss and sport specific challenges. I cater my training sessions to specifically target my clients needs. I combine my vast experience stemming from my athletics background as well as my Sports Massage & Injury knowledge to keep my clients working hard and injury free.

“I regard myself as very fortunate to have been a client of Wayne’s for both personal training and sports massage for more than twenty years.

As a person, Wayne is thoroughly honest and reliable and has a great sense of humour. As a personal trainer, Wayne is hugely knowledgeable and thoughtful, making sure his programmes are

tailored to the needs and particular qualities of each person he works with. As a sports masseur, Wayne is simply superb - I hate to think what state my body would be in without my weekly sports massage!

It goes without saying that I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Wayne as both a personal trainer and a sports masseur to anybody - indeed some of my closest friends and colleagues have become very satisfied clients of Wayne over the years on the back of my recommendation.”  Martin Taylor

 

 

“I have been training with Wayne McDonald as my personal trainer on a one to one basis for nearly ten years. Over that time working with Wayne has really helped me to build and maintain fitness, flexibility and strength.

As I didn’t have any specific goals, other than to maintain an overall level of fitness so that I can continue a healthy lifestyle and play club level sport into my 50’s, working out a programme might have posed a challenge for some trainers - not for Wayne. He has always suggested a varied programme of strength, flexibility and cardio routines which I have felt suited me down to the ground. Wayne has varied the programme regularly to maintain interest and increase the level of challenge appropriately – recognising that sometimes life gets in the way of training as much as I would like to.

Wayne’s great qualities as a trainer are: an encyclopaedic knowledge of various training methods; a thorough understanding of injury and weakness and how to address it; a great way of engaging with clients

to help us work as hard as we can while enjoying it; and a real flexibility in approach that means he can work with a variety of clients with differing base levels and needs. I would recommend him without hesitation.”  Pat Treacy
