Chris Dominey - About PTD

The key individual behind Personal Trainer Direct is senior personal trainer Chris Dominey of Bodmin, Cornwall.

Since leaving university where I gained a HND in Sport and Recreation Studies, I have been working within the fitness industry, and along with personal training I currently work as a gym and class instructor. I am registered with the Register of Exercise Professionals, which means my qualifications have been verified. I am a determined and enthusiastic person with substantial knowledge regarding anatomy, physiology, fitness and nutrition. However, I am always willing to learn new skills and am committed to my own personal development. My patience and ability to motivate will be invaluable assets in getting you to achieve your goals.

To me fitness is something that should be enjoyed; allow me to help you enhance your lifestyle.
