HEAD COACH & FOUNDER
Tom founded Be Fearsome in 2016 after working in the fitness industry for over 5 years with one main goal; to get more people, more active, more often whilst making a positive impact on the local community.
He spent 3 years running the UK's largest bootcamp in central London, with over 1000 clients and a team of 25 instructors. Here he helped literally 1000's of people achieve their goals, from complete beginner to advanced athletes.
Since founding Be Fearsome, Tom has grown the team to 20 trainers and coaches allowing Be Fearsome to extend its scope to cover a wide range of services by the team of experts.
When not running the business, Tom specialises in Transformational Wellness Coaching and helps ambitious professionals to achieve the best shape of their lives, without sacrificing their precious family time. He also splits his time between Personal Training, Group Exercise Classes, Coaching Endurance Sports Athletes and Corporate Teambuilding.
He is also very active in the local community with charity outreach projects and recently did 1000 burpees in one go to raise money to buy clothing for the homeless.
He has coached first-time triathletes to their first Ironman and elite GB age groupers.
Previously, Tom was in the Royal Marines Commandos and is an Afghanistan veteran. After the Royal Marines he spent 4 years as an International Security Consultant leading armed teams in anti-piracy on the East & West coasts of Africa. Here, he found his passion for leadership and learned the 'Fearsome' mindset - the foundation of Be Fearsome.
Tom regularly takes part in triathlon races and has completed multiple Ironman events including Ironman Mallorca and Ironman Barcelona. Outside of triathlon, he's a keen climber, mountaineer, and kayaker.
Tom brings a wealth of experience in helping a wide variety of people to achieve their goals and uses this to tailor programmes to suit the individual every time. With his background, knowledge, qualifications, and passion, you can be assured you're in good hands.
What does Being Fearsome mean? Well, it's a mindset. Being Fearsome is not being afraid of the 'what if's', 'oh but I can't' or letting anything stand in your way. Overcoming any fears or apprehensions regarding fitness or life. At Be Fearsome we believe anything is possible with the right knowledge, tools, and attitude.
