He has over 11 years experience in the field gaining vital experience along the way, working alongside elite athletes such as the Wakefield Trinity Academy team looking after their Nutritional needs.

After representing England Schools RL under 16’s Graham joined Wakefield Trinity and for the next 8 years enjoyed a professional career until injury caused early retirement from the game, during this set back the realisation of his love for sports and fitness became even stronger and chose to help others achieve the same goals he witnessed were possible from any situation.
During rehab from a fracture/dislocation of his neck in which he was nearly paralysed, he realised the importance of exercise not only for physical implications but for the mental side of things. This sparked him into wanting to help as many people as possible who maybe going through something similar understand how exercise can help with pain relief also.
