Ed Rycroft - Personal Trainer - Gym

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!

The last few years have been spent developing experience in different training and movement approves, although this has primarily consisted of gymnastics and yoga. So whatever your fitness goals, whether it is to lose weight and build strength, develop mobility or rehab from injury and correct muscular imbalances, I’m really excited to work with you and achieve great things together.
