Welcome to To Be Personal Training; high-end, mobile personal training, private group fitness and running coaching in Exeter, Honiton, Sidmouth and the surrounding towns and villages.

I am Tom and from 2011 to 2020 I became one of the leading personal trainers in New Zealand. I returned to the UK with my family in 2020 and rebooted my business in Cambridge. In 2023, I made a final move with my family to East Devon where I plan to push myself and To Be Personal Training to even greater heights.

I offer personal training and private group fitness classes to busy professionals at their homes, workplaces or other convenient locations. I take a holistic, common-sense and no-nonsense attitude to health and fitness. Training sessions are always fun, functional and focused on the needs of the client.


Since 2011, I have trained most of my clients at their workplaces, homes or in suitable outdoor locations.

Well-equipped, private gyms are fantastic but do not worry if you do not have access to one. You'll be surprised at how little space you need to perform an effective workout. I also have a great selection of training equipment that I am happy to bring to sessions.


There’s more to running than just pounding the pavement for mile after mile. Running drills, conditioning work and structured running programs will take your performance to another level.

Whether you are new to running or a seasoned racer, I can help you train more effectively, avoid injury and perform better.

Speed is a fundamental component of fitness that can be significantly improved through expert coaching and comprehensive programs.

I have experience coaching track and field athletes and sportsmen/women in all of the major field sports. My clients have ranged from children learning basic movement skills to adults representing their country.
