My name is Martyn Candler and I am a Personal Trainer and Sports Massage Therapist in Castle Donington.


I have always been active, but never liked the traditional football and cricket etc.  I was more into Caving, Rock Climbing, Martial Arts, Yoga and Weights.  My goal has always been - to maintain my energy levels and fitness as I get older.

In 1993 I joined Nottinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service as a full-time Fire Fighter.

In 1998 I qualified in Sports Massage.

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.


During the next year, I spent every spare minute reading all I could about Personal Training and Nutrition.  I was determined to get my Level 3 Personal Training as quick as possible. 

Except eleven months later I had a full Epileptic seizure.  This set me back, but at the same time made me more determined than ever to achieve my new goal.

By January 2014 I had a Level 2 and Level 3 Certificate in Personal training (QCF).

In September 2015 I qualified as a Nutrition Coach with Precision Nutrition.  

My speciality is individualised, safe, fun, intense workouts which achieve results.
