About us


 I'm Peter:

System Fitness is about supporting people - mainly over 50 - to improve their fitness and health.

Its a fact that we can all improve our strength, mobility and balance AT ANY AGE. However as we get older we need to utilise the best approaches and reflect how our bodies change with ageing.

I qualified as a Fitness Instructor in my 50's. I am 61 now. From personal experience, my qualifications and personal learning I believe my skills and experience can help you.

It is never too late to improve your overall fitness and gain the many associated benefits of this.

I have seen amazing improvements from the people I have worked with.

You do not need specialist /expensive equipment or long hours in a gym, but as we age, how we can achieve these improvements does change.

We are deliberately not 'aligned' to any national brand, so that we can deliver the best approach to support individual needs.

My qualifications:

  • Level 4 Postural Stability Instructor *
  • Level 3 Personal Trainer *
  • Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral *
  • MovNat - Natural Movement trainer
  • FABS training (Move it or loose it) *
  • Emergency First aid *
  • Suspension Training *
  • Kettlebell Training *
  • Calisthenics Fundamentals (Calisthenics UK)

(* = REPS- Register of Exercise Professionals Accredited)
