My name is Martyn Candler and I am a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist in Castle Donington.
I joined Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service in 1993 and after 30 years of service retired in 2023.
In January 2009 I lost sensation in the fingers of my left hand and was diagnosed with a large brain tumour. At this point, I felt like giving up.
My life and career felt over. Thankfully the tumour was removed and I attended the Fire Service Rehabilitation Centre. I underwent two weeks of intensive physiotherapy, weights and cardio fitness training.
It was here I decided to combine my fitness activities and massage skills to provide an all-round service. I combined my Sports Massage with Personal Training.
My quest to learn more about physical fitness and the capabilities of the human body did not end there. I have moved on and got my caching certificates in CrossFit, Level 1 and Level 2.
1998 Diploma in Sports Massage
2014 Level 3 Personal training
2021 CrossFit Level 1
2023 CrossFit Level 2
My speciality is individualised, safe, fun, intense workouts which achieve results.
