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.
