Tom is the founder and owner of WHS and lives & breathes to help clients achieve their dream! Alongside training a multitude of clientele he also consults many Trainers & Coaches to improve their businesses. Tom is a highly regarded coach within the industry.

My Story

I started WHS because I found the commercial gym a highly inadequate place to produce the best for my clients. The goal of the commercial gym tends to be too much about the bottom line. Although being a business owner I understand this is of importance, but there is way more to it and my belief system didn’t align with the commercial gym mission statement.

At WHS I have built a fantastic culture and created another way of doing things. The way I see it is you wouldn’t represent yourself in court, or invest in stocks by yourself. You would find an expert. The gym is no different. At WHS I guarantee my team and facility will be able to give you a much bigger return on your investment than if you were to go it alone.

My current focus is to continue to train those who wish to compete at a high level. I now only take on the very serious and the commitment I ask for reflects this. To open more WHS’ so we can help reach more people. Finally, to help more Personal Trainers & Strength Coaches develop their careers with our trainer education product.

Testimonial
  • Aaron Page Wins England’s Strongest Man Southern Qualifier

    It was one of those days that came around much quicker then I expected. One day I was at a wedding, then the next day…BAM…Comp day!!

    Training for this comp had been going well although my deadlift was a bit hit and miss but sometimes that’s just the way things are! My mind set going into the comp was to make sure I finish in the top 4 to qualify for England’s strongest man 2016.

    I got to the venue early to support my client Mike Dove in the novice competition before the qualifier. He was doing great until he decided to take a dive with the chain yoke and ended up splitting his head open resulting in retiring from the competition. I think he’s been watching too much Euro 2016. Just so everyone knows he is fine and will be back in training soon!

    The time came upon us to sign in and get kitted up, nerves had started to kick in as I knew the deadlift was first. Time to draw numbers…..9 was happy with that!!

    Event one: Max Deadlift 13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    The bar started at 280kg on these massive tyres which you had to stand on a platform to get too. 280kg went straight up no problem as did 320kg and 340kg. Many of the competitors at this point had dropped off.  360kg was next up and again a few fail the lift so I knew if I were to get it, it would be good points and a new Personal Best! It flew up for me and I achieved 1st place, joint with 2 others, for the event.

    Event two: 320kg Chain yoke
    After watching all the novice and opens do this I just needed to finish with a good pace, no drops and placing would take care of itself. I was up with a slow wobbly start but managed to get moving and finished a respectable 4th place.


    Event three: Overhead Medley
    Any kind of overhead event I always enjoy and this was no exception. The 1st implement was a giant 130kg keg. I cleaned it to the13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n shoulder and stumbled every so slightly. I kept my composure and adjusted myself and gave a tidy push press. Next up was a 140kg a
    xle. I popped it on my power belly then onto my chest and quickly overhead in one swift movement. Moving swiftly onto the 155kg log, I clean & pressed this like it wasn’t there! I was the first to make it to the 90kg Monster Dumbbell and took a split second to gee up the crowd and then one to compose myself. I popped it up to the shoulder, stabilised it then a quick leg drive & dropped underneath it. Standing up with the dumbbell overhead I gave a thumbs up to the crowd for good measure!


    1st place in this event and the only man to complete all of the implements!

    Event four: Car Deadlift Hold 13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    Any one who knows me know my grip is not the best but I’ve been working hard on it! The weight in hands was around 300kg and I my target was to to get over 30 seconds. Up the car went and I managed to hold on for 34 seconds to get me 5th place.

    Event five: Medley 2 x tyres 100kg 1 x 130kg keg x 20m each13466286_1071781882876614_3057306027513798926_n
    As Martin Cee would say, the scores on the doors had me in 1st place but only by half a point. Colin had been pushing me the whole day so I knew I would have to win the event to take 1st place.

    We both started like grey hounds out after a rabbit with the first tyre. I came back with the 2nd but as I put mine down it bounced so I had to secure it before I went back for the keg. Colin was ahead of me I managed to get some ground back by sprinting in between. I grabbed the keg and held it high and away I went up the run way. Colin stumbled on the keg which meant I secured 1st place. I wouldn’t let him give up so I went over and pushed him to the end because that’s what this sport is about supporting each other!

    Not sure what the final scores were but it was close. I look forward to competing with the guys again at England’s strongest man 2016

    Thank you to everyone who came to watch and support me now time to bring on England’s strongest man
