Testimonials

  • I have had a personal trainer for over 15 years and trained with Chris for the last 5 years. During this time Chris has trained me though shoulder bursitis, a knee operation, a chronic bad back and hand surgery. He has been incredibly innovative with his training techniques and is always willing to find a solution to training challenges my body presents. 

    He is motivating in a quiet and knowledgable way and is able to offer excellent advice on nutrition. I trust Chris implicitly with training and his rehab knowledge is second to none. Having said that he is also excellent at training hard, pushing me to perform at my best and getting results.

    I have also attended group training sessions run by Chris which are a lot of fun as well as hard work.

  • I started training with Chris Hynds after having two children just ten months apart and having ballooned to 107kg.
    When I first started training it appeared to be the most mammoth challenge I had set myself and impossible in my mind.
    Physically I am 100 times fitter than I ever was, continuing to improve and am down to 65 kg – last time I weighed that was when I got married 16 years ago.
    Over the last couple of years I have had a few injuries and a couple of operations to my left hand. Chris’s background has allowed us to still train and incorporate rehabilitation.
    Chris has endured countless whinging and whining over the last three years we have trained together but it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Does Colour Heal? How body and brain respond to colour and the natural therapies that have known it all along.

Elise Watts

How do you feel when you see the colours red, or yellow or blue? You are likely to report a different response to each colour, even at a physical level. Colour has been used for years for healing by many cultures, including ancient Egypt, Babylonia and China. Experiments have been done to show that colour frequencies may emit different heats and stimulate healing in different cells in your body. In 1890, Noble Prize winner, Dr. Neils Finsen, used infrared light to heal skin lesions from small pox.

Modern medicine utilizes coloured lasers and phototherapy in the treatment of conditions as diverse as psoriasis, diabetic eye disease, to heart re-vascularisation and seasonal defective disorder., so science is now beginning to verify the healing impact that colour and light have on us. This all sounds wonderful, but you may be asking yourself, how it is possible that even thinking about colour could be healing you.

About me

There are very few things that make me happier than being able to assist people in achieving goals they never thought possible and helping steer them in a better direction in life.

Making the right choices with nutrition and the right choices when exercising can all have a positive knock on effect in helping you make the right choices in life. Creating a more positive you!

One of my favourite quotes is a simple one but very effective and its something I personally strive for everyday, inside and outside of the gym.

"Become the strongest version of yourself"

I have been involved in health and fitness since I left school almost 10 years ago. I studied Sport Performance & Excellence, then went onto work in gyms as a Fitness Instructor and eventually Personal trainer, which I have been doing now for around 6/7 years.

My style of training ranges from Weight Loss, General Fitness, Corrective Exercise/ Rehab, Powerlifting, Bodybuilding, BoxFit, Functional Movement & Core Conditioning and more. I try not to specialise in one aspect but to have a broad but specific knowledge of various styles training.

Personally I train as a Powerlifter / Bodybuilder, I love both the mental and physical challenge of stepping under a heavy Barbell and putting myself to the test every time I step in the gym.

My passion is in Health & Fitness, and I will do everything I possibly can to help assist you in becoming the strongest version of yourself!
