Welcome to White Crane Academy Personal Training

With well over a decade of teaching martial arts classes and one-to-ones, I found that many people were interested in the fitness element and less so the martial content, so I started White Crane Academy Personal Training

I approach health and fitness as I do martial arts. It’s all about balance, good technique, and learning skills that will help you in your everyday life, not just whilst you are training. If these principles are adhered to, you will be amazed at your progress over the weeks, months, and years!

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to getting fit and healthy, and the evolving training plan that I put together with you will reflect that. The training can be as physically hard or as gentle as you need and will always be tailored towards your individual goals.

First and foremost, we need to find out what you enjoy and what will motivate you!

Over the years, I’ve worked with clients from 4 years old to 105 – I’ve helped everyone from martial arts students and ultra distance runners to pensioners who have not exercised for decades, and clients recovering from surgery and injuries.

The sessions can take place at my studio or garden in central Haywards Heath, at your own home/garden, or in a park – depending on what you prefer (and the weather!)

Training plans to keep you active between our one-to-one sessions are included in the cost.

“I first got involved with White Crane Academy when I did beginners Tai Chi classes locally. Mark was therefore my first port of call when I turned my focus to getting fit after years of not exercising and a sluggish lockdown 1.

We started weight training once a week in my back garden and Mark would bring the equipment with him. Enjoying it so much and feeling heathier not only in my body but my mind too, I increased my sessions to 3 a week.

I now go to Marks studio and garden which is well equipped and my training is going from strength to strength. Mark took great care to ensure I developed a good technique and progress was made safely. I would recommend Mark to anyone who wants to get fit but finds they don’t have the will power to do it on their own at home. The various pieces of equipment that Mark provides ensures that no 2 sessions are the same, a good variation of exercises means that an overall body workout is always achieved.”
