About Us

The Name

We are different and our appraochto training goes beyond all others!  Black Sheep Fitness is originally named after the local herd of Hebridean Sheep that live year round on Baggy Point.  They thrive in their environment through their strength, agility and tenacity. These qualities are the same ones that we use with clients and apply to each session. We look at you differently and train you differently because you are unique.  

About Me

I'm Scott and originally from Scotland before life led me to a life in beautiful North Devon. 

Whilst in the northern climes, I developed my lifelong love of the outdoors and fitness which eventually led to me becoming a Royal Marines Officer. 

I left to become a house husband and help raise my two wonderful children. Through them, I found myself supporting and coaching at their clubs which meant that I could continue my love of sport, fitness and coaching that leads me to where I am today.

I qualified as a Certified Master Trainer after an intense course at the European Institute of Fitness based at the National Sports Centre, Lilleshall.  The five week residential course allowed me to "eat, sleep and breathe personal training"  so that I could become the best Personal Trainer that I could be. 

I regularly refresh and update my skills and constantly strive to provide the best possible service.

I continue to enjoy surfing, triathlon, walking, my family and life!
