PERSONAL TRAINER AND
L3 SQUASH COACH
My workouts with Stephen are always brilliant. He’s resourceful and inventive: he keeps challenging me to go a bit further than I think I can, but makes it fun, with plenty of variety, so I always come away feeling energised.
I intended to meet a couple of trainers before deciding whom to work with but having met Stephen Thompson, I knew immediately there was no need to keep looking. He is not only a dedicated and great personal trainer, but he is a really lovely guy with a personable manner, always reliable and punctual.
I enjoy my sessions with him, he works hard and expects me to work hard but he is sensitive to my capabilities. I am looking forward to our next 10 sessions having done 10 already.
After a layoff from squash for a while due to injury I turned to Steve to help me get back to fitness and then to work on my movement on the court. Steve assessed what was needed and whilst always pushing me he never went too far and fast – and was always encouraging.
He is very structured in his work and reads your capability well. On each session you sense that you are improving bit by bit. I would not have recovered as quickly or as well without Steve’s guidance.
At the age of 52 it’s now difficult to change old habits developed through over 35 years of playing squash. Stephen appreciates this and does not overcomplicate our sessions. Stephen can think on his feet and each session commences with a chat about recent games I have had. He picks up on problem areas and orchestrates the sessions to address the problems in bespoke ways.
I would highly recommend Stephen. He will improve your game and keep the training focused and effective.
