Darran is an experienced Personal Trainer, operating across the whole of Birmingham and Solihull for At Home Fitness for nearly 5 years. He has gained a reputation for being able to apply relevant and effective training techniques for a wide variety of clients.
“Being a quality Personal Trainer isn’t just about knowing how to help someone lose weight or tone up. You need many more srings to your bow than those basics. Every client is different. Every client has a different goal. That’s actually the best thing about working for At Home Fitness and being a Personal Trainer in Birmingham. I have pregnant clients, overweight clients, young up and coming sportspeople, even clients just looking to maintain fitness levels and continue a healthy lifestyle. Every session is a new experience, which is both challenging and enjoyable for both myself and my clients!”
As a mobile Personal Trainer in Birmingham, Darran offers specialist skills in kettlebells, circuit training, boxing, marathon training, pre and post natal training, sports specific conditioning, young people and older adults fitness, and exercise referral for clients with a pre-existing medical condition.

“One of my proudest success stories came from possibly my biggest challenges as the At Home Fitness Personal Trainer Birmingham; training a 6 year old lad with cerebral palsy.
This young boy, is one of the friendliest kids I’ve ever met. He always had a smile on his face, wanting to sing, dance and play. I’m not going to go into the ins and outs of his condition (partly because it’s a bit technical for me), but essentially his central motor dysfunctions prevent him from controlling his muscles fully. As a result his movement was limited to crawling and using braces and/or walking rollers.
My challenge here, as a Personal Trainer, was to help improve core and leg strength to aid improved movement. For an adult client with such a condition it would be difficult. So to conduct training sessions that are fun and productive for a child stretched my experience and creativity to the limit.
At times the sessions flew by. Others I doubted how much progress we were making. Until his mother sent me a picture over text after about 5 weeks of training. He was standing up unassisted! Something he had never been able to do before, and something we were told he may never accomplish. Seeing this made me realise that no matter what your goals are, and no matter how hard you (or anyone else) think they will be to achieve, reach for the sky!”
“As the At Home Fitness Personal Trainer Birmingham, I love helping clients achieve their goals. It’s a rare and special occasion when I get to work with young clients with a sporting goal. I have been fortunate enough to work with a number of highly skilled young athletes in Birmingham, but it’s two aspiring footballers that I want to mention here; Lewis Clarke and Easah Suliman. Remember the names, note them down if you need to, because these lads both have what it takes. They are right at the beginning of their career paths, with bright futures ahead of them. They have signed schoolboy forms with teams in the West Midlands; Lewis is at Kidderminster Harriers, and Easah represents Aston Villa (and England).
Training them is both a challenge and a joy. We focus on four main areas of fitness training; speed, agility, explosive power and muscular endurance. Activities include; short range acceleration work, 10 meters up to 200 meter reps, hill training, parachute sprinting, full body workouts, kettlebell training, calisthenics, shuttle runs… you name it we’ve done it.
Both lads have made exceptional improvements, particularly in the last couple of months (spring/ summer 2014). So much so I can no longer claim to be stronger or quicker than either of them (although I do manage to pull out a win sometimes!). It’s a real pleasure to work with young people who are dedicated to what they want to do. They are always willing to do another rep and push themselves to get better. It makes my job easy. In fact the only difficult part is the extra training I have to do myself to keep up!”
