I'm Jonny a fully certified Nutritional Therapist and fully qualified Personal Trainer and am the founder of Ultimate Personal Well-Being. I completed a degree in Sport, Health, Exercise and Nutrition at the University of Leeds in 2011, after which I completed my Personal Training course and set up my Personal Training business. I have always had a major interest in nutrition and how it can impact health. I wanted to enhance my knowledge even further after my degree so chose to study Nutritional Therapy at the highly regarded Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London for three years, graduating in January 2016.
I am a member of BANT (British Association on Nutritional Therapists) and the CNHC (Complementary and National Healthcare Council). BANT act as a professional body for Nutritional Therapy practitioners. They also promote high standards of education, training practice and integrity in the nutrition profession. I follow BANT's code of ethics and this therefore ensures you that I will provide the highest quality Nutritional Therapy consultations. The CNHC is a goverment sponsored voluntary registration body for complementary healthcare practitioners. It's main purpose is to provide the public with access to a list of practitioners that have been assessed as meeting national standards of competence and practice.
I use an extremely grounded approach, as both a Nutritional Therapist and Personal Trainer, and have used this approach successfully with clients - I am not brainwashed into thinking we have to stick to a 'quinoa type diet' or eat nothing but rabbit food. I believe in a balanced approach providing subtle changes which are manageable even with the most hectic of lifestyles. I don't live off a diet of chicken, salad, broccoli and never having an alcoholic drink so I don't believe everyone else has to! I have made various TV appearances promoting a healthy, but sustainable lifestyle to my audience.
I specialise in improving digestive health. This is of particular interest to me as I suffered from a stomach ulcer in 2007 and used good nutrition and various supplements to help cure it. I also specialise in burnout, which is now very common with today's hectic lifestyles. I suffered from this myself in 2008 and recovered through researching diet and supplementation that could aid my recovery. I am very keen to pass this message on to people and therfore regularly present at corporate events on how to prevent and treat symptoms of burnout through diet and lifestyle advice. I also help with weight loss and improving body composition; this is obviously where Personal Training can also help. I am also a keen long distance runner, competing for Tipton Harriers, and can help you compete and train for an event in any sport at either recreational or elite level, by helping with your training and nutrition.
