Hi, I'm Andy and here at Happy Hamsters are purpose is very simple. We are here to help you become a very Happy Hamster by understanding your specific coaching & mentoring needs. We will work closely with you to develop the optimal way to develop your health, fitness & wellbeing using a range of methods and approaches that will best suit your personal circumstances. We specialise in working with clients who find some traditional training systems somewhat restrictive and want a fresh approach.
My purpose is to help you live a happier, healthier life and I have a broad range of life experiences to help you on your journey. My "Your Life, "Our Planet" coaching philosophy is based on understanding your needs and working with you to effect positive changes in lifestyle and exercise using the natural environment and like minded spirits to positively influence your life, health & wellbeing and of course our planet.
I've been exposed to progressive training systems from a very young age with mixed experiences, I found what really makes the difference to success is your mentor & coaching. Most of my adult career I've spent managing & mentoring people through both my corporate project and programme management roles and I'm proud to have make a significant impact in developing some of my mentees careers and lifestyles way beyond what they thought was possible.
Of course its easy to "talk the talk" but I'm a firm believer in leading by example and I continuously challenge my own boundaries so I can learn and share my experiences with others and develop a deeper understanding of self.
I'm a qualified L3 Personal Trainer and L2 Triathlon Coach but tend to be placed in the Ultra Distance box having completed some big UK & European Ultra's including UTMB, Bob Graham Round Sub 24 and the Montane Spine Race 268mile race. I've also completed six long course triathlons and also a member of the 2023 British Triathlon, GB Age Group Team. So I'm a very Happy Hamster.
