Get to know Coach Craig

Favourite exercise?

Fat grip barbell chest press … with chains!

Favourite piece of kit?

Battle ropes. Great for cardio but so much fun to climb!

Dream training partner?

Muhammad Ali. I love doing pad work with clients so would pick up some awesome combinations from him. Also his mental attitude to training was amazing.

The exercise you have a love-hate relationship with?

Squats. I love them at the moment as I’m getting more depth and increasing the weight. On the flip side, I hate them because I walk funny for the next few days!

Most played song on your gym playlist?

Take Me To Church by Hozier.
