Hi, I’m Jack Hanrahan
I’m a trainer and soft tissue therapist based in London. I’ve had the pleasure of working with a wide array of clients across the globe. These include athletes, CEOs and actors on films such as X-Men Apocalypse and Bohemian Rhapsody. I love my job and I’m passionate about helping people to improve the way they look, move and feel. I am always proud and grateful to be a part of my clients’ journeys.
Smarter Training. Superior Results.
Many people training today are struggling to make progress. In the short term, they may see results. But in the long run, they end up burned out or injured and are pushed swiftly back to square one. This is a typical outcome when training is too aggressive, unbalanced and unsustainable.
Cycling through injuries and battling pain is all too common. Yet it’s completely avoidable.
As humans, we need variety in our training to function well and be healthy. That’s why I believe in taking a well-rounded approach to fitness. I combine weight training, mobility and cardio. This is the most efficient way to look good, move well and feel great. It’s effective. It’s sustainable. And most importantly, it transfers to a better quality of life outside the gym.
The bread and butter of an effective program. It will improve the way you look and how your body performs. I program weight training around movement patterns. I prioritise getting strong with one’s body weight. This ensures you have a functional carryover to life outside the gym.
The missing link in most people’s training. Let’s face it, our lifestyle doesn’t involve nearly enough movement to keep our joints healthy and moving well. So it must be supplemented in. When our joints work well, we move better and exhibit better body control. This enables us to be more successful with our training and the physical activities we like to do.
Neglected by most, cardio trains the heart and builds an efficient engine. Aerobic fitness is the most important predictor of longevity and there are plenty of immediate benefits too. You’ll have a better work capacity so you can train longer and more frequently. You’ll recover faster and sleep better. Oh, and it’s a potent fat loss tool if you have body composition goals!
Maintaining our bodies takes more than 1 hour in the gym. Lack of movement and poor postural habits can lead to stiffness and various aches and pains very quickly. So I teach my clients effective self-care techniques. These self-massage and mobility exercises can be performed anywhere from your office to your home. They’ll keep you moving well and the body feeling great.

No two people are the same; from anatomical differences to lifestyle stresses, we are all in a unique state of physical health with different movement capabilities.
I train and treat my clients like the individuals they are and will build a truly tailor-made programme for you.
