Ed Rycroft

Hi, I’m Ed Rycroft, and I recently relocated back home to Yorkshire, having lived in London for 7 years and worked in the fitness industry. I am excited to be launching True Personal Training with a superb team of Personal Trainers. I wanted to create a studio facility that offers a great service and bespoke programming to everyone, all the time. At one point in my life I was overweight and struggling to get the real answers amongst all the fad diets and misleading information out there. This is why `I am passionate about making training with us educational, so that people can sustain their results long term.  I love all types of fitness, whether functional fitness, strength training, suspension, or long distance running - for me, it’s all about variety. I also have a huge obsession with kitesurfing and can regularly be found on the beach!

Joe Roddam

Hi I'm Joe Roddam and I am very excited to be a part of the True Personal Training team. The facility is perfect for me to help you smash any goal you want to achieve whether it be fat loss, building muscle or any other target. Fitness is a huge passion, I personally love functional strength training and metabolic conditioning but I have knowledge and respect of all types of exercise. My diet used to be poor, high in bad fats and sugar, from personal experience strict diets are harder to adhere to. I can provide simple and effective changes to your diet that will support the work you put in at your workout sessions. My focus is to get you to be the best version of yourself, to get your body moving well and pain free, ready to take on life!
