Robin Oakley

Robin worked in marketing and the internet for many years whilst maintaining a passionate interest in sport.

He competed in and completed a myriad of sporting endeavours that have included a 24-hour roller skate, being in the GB Unicycle Hockey squad, coming 3rd in the british human power championships, a 400km Audax cycle, the 125 mile DW non stop canoe race and a singlehanded trasatlantic yacht race. Robin is currently a member of the Great Britian Grand Dragons Dragon Boat Racing Team, representing GB at the European Championships in 2012 (Nottingham), the World Championships in 2013 (Hungary) and winning various silver and bronze medals. He represented GB again in 2014 at the EU Championships in Prague.

Robin has broken a world record for dragon boating. (For an account he wrote see here and click this to see the certificate.) He is a qualified dinghy and kayaking instructor, indeed in 2010 Robin was runner up Community Coach of the year for Dacorum (for canoeing). He subsequently trained and qualified as a personal trainer (REPS Level 3).

Today Robin's focus is on making his sessions fun and relaxed. He strongly believes in fitness and while he can train and coach elites he's more often working with regular folks whom he tries to get active by promoting achievable regular exercise. He does a lot of work with middle-aged people, as well as youth.

Robin says, "We will all live longer if we exercise every day, I see my job as making that achievable and fun for you. I can help you excel at the highest level but most likely you need an easy achievable programme tailored to your lifestyle and goals."

In addition Robin is a first aider, has a current HSE certificate, is versed in making risk assessments and understands and meets insurance requirements and other legislation. He has numerous CRB checks from various organisations. He is also a qualified self defence, mountain bike and off road driving instructor.
