About Me

Carig HarperI have always been an enthusiastic exponent of health and fitness. Having obtained my Diploma in Personal Training in 2005, I went on to graduate in 2008 from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff with a BSc (Hons) degree in Sports Development. Whilst at University and upon completion of my studies I furthered my development by working for Esporta in Bridgend and London. Here I was able to apply my knowledge and gain experience within the gym environment.

To underline my enthusiasm for health and fitness I have been involved in a variety of sports and activities including badminton, climbing, football, running and rowing. In addition to having competed in many running events including half marathons and a marathon I competed in the British Indoor Rowing Championships in 2008.

I went on to compete in the Welsh Indoor Rowing Championships in 2008/09 where I secured 4th place in the men’s 2000m U23 heavyweight category.

I specialise in 1 to 1 training, buddy and group personal training, indoor rowing, long distance running, core and abdominal training, sport specific exercise, weight training and boxing conditioning. It is of full importance to me that I provide client focused personal training. Whether you want to lose weight, tone up or improve fitness levels, I can guarantee you results, you WILL see results. My reputation is your guarantee.


Having gained almost ten years experience within the fitness industry I have found it important to keep up with my professional development to ensure I provide quality client focused personal training.
