About me

Welcome to New You Personal Training

I’m Richard Waddington and I am passionate about helping you achieve your health and fitness goals, whatever your age or experience. Importantly I understand that your needs will be different from the next person.

I have always been obsessive about health and fitness, with all family holidays including early morning runs and trips to local gyms, much to the frustration of my wife! Fortunately my three sons have inherited Dad’s passion! 

After working for a large corporate company, I decided that it was time to regain my independence and follow a career path which allows me to have a direct influence  on people’s well being on a one to one basis.

I am organised and structured in all that I do which will ensure programmes are appropriate, progressive and that you will understand how each session fits into the “bigger picture”.

My interests include rugby, squash, running and strength & conditioning.

I played my last game of rugby at the age of 52 and continue my interest through coaching local clubs and supporting Bath Rugby.
