Personal Training

The core of Grind Hard Fitness lies in the individualised 1-1 programmes, probably the best fitness Newcastle has to offer. Tailor made to suit each client and athletes needs specifically. The time spent during these sessions is extremely efficient. Meaning that the client receives the upmost benefit from every minute spent training.

Chris has a wealth of knowledge in a massive variety of training disciplines. Communicating instructions clearly and gearing each program exactly to the level of the specific client or athlete.

Along with advice from Chris, a programme will be developed around that.Grind Hard Fitness has achieved great results.

MMA is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. For those who need an introduction to it MMA consist primarily of Wrestling, Muay Thai Boxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Fighters compete in a octagon shaped cage over several rounds and can win by points, knockout or submission.

1-1 or small group sessions are available and geared towards people looking to start training mixed martial arts and those who may have experience in combat discipline’s already. Novice and intermediate level fighters will gain the most from these sessions. Sessions cover a range of techniques, movements, drills, skills and sparring. The aim is to progress the athlete’s knowledge and skill base as quickly as possible without increasing risk. Sessions are demanding and testing but at an appropriate level in relation to skill.

As a coach I have trained with many top level athletes in various parts of the world with a vast range of experience in many disciplines and other relevant sport and fitness events and competitions. Coach Chris has fought in many grappling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu tournaments, lived and trained in several fight camps world wide, training with world famous fighters and has fought on several MMA cards the biggest being cage warriors.

Sessions are not technically geared for advanced fighters but they would be highly recommend to the Full Tilt Fight Conditioning class instead which will test even the most conditioned athlete.

Anyone looking to get involved in MMA for fun, skill, self defence or looking to advance to completion level can entire further.


With an extensive background in a variety of martial arts and fighting disciplines at European competition level. As well as a long history of controlling security in several of the most notorious drinking venues throughout the North East and being subject to hundreds of emergencies, volatile and violent situations. Grind Hard Fitness offers tuition in reality based combat.

These sessions are incredibly unique. They cover self defence and protection based skills adapted from a range of fighting styles used in many Martial Arts and self defence systems. The sessions focus on developing skill rather than fitness. Fitness is very relevant inside the cage, the ring or on the mats. In real life events when taken by surprise your body deals with an immediate adrenaline dump and it is your mind and nervous system which need to be developed. It is for this reason these sessions are one of a kind. Learning skill and putting it in to practice in a purposeful and stressful environment are the only way to develop the ability to defend yourself other than actually having to do it for real. Mental conditioning and learning to adapt technique whilst being exposed to a variety of circumstances will make chances in a real life scenario significantly better. When taken by surprise the odds are far from in your favour.

Personal trainings at Grind Hard you better believe you will learn to neutralise the playing field incredibly quickly and become dominant in the situation. A lot of the time that is enough to discourage an attacker! If not, well, you’ll be given possession to some pretty damaging skills. These sessions by nature can be fairly intense when being tested, as rehearsal for such an event is no joke. On the same note you are not being tested all of the time. The aim is to develop skill and understanding in all areas which can be fun and rewarding.

As always numbers are capped to ensure the best quality tuition. These sessions and workshops cover intense and distressing material. There is no way to dress up the reality of being attacked! Most of the time things don’t go to plan and we must adapt to situations. Environments both internal and external which are nasty, messy and unpleasant. The workshops cover guidance around the legality of how you defend yourself and use of reasonable force. Therefore there is a small amount of theory but they are mostly very hands on.  (Please note we are not police officer or solicitors so all information is guidance taken from relevant courses)

**Reality based workshops are available. Please see the blog and social media for latest workshop information. Any group or company looking for tuition please get in touch via this website, social media or call today.
