Meet Jonathon

My story

Hi, I’m Jonny, up until a few years ago I struggled massively with yo-yo-ing weight.

I always wanted to be the fittest, the biggest, the fastest, the best at my sport throughout my adolescence until I left school. I have had a passion for training my whole life and have always made it a priority.

After leaving school, and over the course of a few years at university, I (unknowingly at the time) was battling with mental health issues. I say unknowingly as my way of dealing with my issues was to pretend they did not exist, drink myself to oblivion and not take responsibility for my physical and mental health.

A combination of injury, bad decisions and just not having a grasp on how to control my weight all fed into the melting pot. I was fluctuating from being lean and athletic for my sport, to being drunk and overweight.

This had a detrimental effect on my training. I would go through periods of strict regimes that I would inevitably fail at, as they were not sustainable. I would pick it back up again a few months down the line and this haphazard cycle would repeat itself across my time at university.

I made so many training mistakes through this time, lacked consistency, lacked structure, any kind of direction or in-depth understanding of how to achieve the body and the performance levels I wanted to.

My mental health spiralled out of control and culminated in a mental breakdown in 2017. Unable to finish my degree that year I spent months feeling nothing, in a world of pain and with no real understanding of how I could get to the other side or if I even could.

A big turning point for me was when I took the plunge to follow my passion for training and become a PT. I worked at a well-established gym in the North West. I was mentored by the owner for two years in which I was able to practically apply the theory I had learnt during my university studies to real-life clients. Helping hundreds of men and women like yourselves achieve the body and performance levels they never thought they could. This was a truly transformational experience for me and from that point on I have never looked back.

I love what I do. It is my passion; helping people overcome training mistakes, many of which I have made myself and getting them the hard-earned results they deserve! I take a non BS approach to what I do. All my systems are tried, tested and founded upon a sound theoretical understanding of training and nutrition.

My goal is to inspire you to reach yours.

I know from my own experience with training and nutrition how much BS is out there and how frustrating it can be navigating the abundance of misinformation. Every minute you spend of your time trawling the internet for answers on how to build more muscle, how to lose body fat, how to improve your physique without a well structured progressive plan backed by evidence and expertise is a total waste of your time and money.

If you add up all the hours you have spent in the gym, listening to podcasts, watching YouTube videos or the money you have spent on members sites, supplements, one-off diet and training plans it all adds up.
You could save your self 1000s in time and money by just investing in a coach that uses proven training and nutrition systems that get clients results and ultimately get you the results you deserve.

Constant support and advice so I never feel alone. Jonny is always on hand with expert tips that make things easy to follow meaning I can put everything into my training with the right knowledge behind me.


I would highly recommend Jonny to anyone who is considering an online coach. Jonnys constant support and pragmatic outlook towards my life style and results has helped me for the first time in a very long time to take control and be accountable to my weight loss and fitness goals.


Jonny is a very knowledgeable and also is physically fit himself so is able to demonstrate how the exercise should be done. So I automatically had respect for what he was advising me on and made me want to gain approval from him. That also made me train harder and squeeze more out of me than if I had trained on my own.


Jonny, has been invaluable to me for my training needs. He has been my go to coach for advice on training technique, recovery, niggling injuries and diet. Over the past two years I’ve gained muscle and lost body fat and my strength has improved dramatically. I’m 48 years old now, and working with the likes of Jonathan Lea I have been more confident in my body, had more energy and do more activities.

Jonny’s knowledge is second to none, always on hand to answer any questions on nutrition, technique or execution. He provides great support and guidance.


Jonny genuinely cares about you and your goals. He gives sounds advice on training and nutrition. No fads or snake oil from him. He gives evidence based advice that will create results.


I enjoyed my time training with Jonny. He was always motivating and encouraging in workouts, always trying to get the most out of clients. I lost body fat and increased muscle mass during the training. He was always willing to give his time to help develop technique when lifting and create modifications to the workouts when injured. He offered support when struggling with nutrition. I feel I have more understanding and confidence when training and lifting. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Jonathon again, he’s friendly, approachable and committed to getting the best results for you.
