My name is Gavin and I am the founder of Team Esteem Fitness. I started Esteem in 2008 with a clear mission to help people change their lives through my area of expertise; Health and Fitness. Today, although the methods may have been tweaked here and there the mission still remains the same.

My Story

Throughout my childhood I could only be described as sport mad and represented my school in just about any sport they would let me. My main passion was Rugby League and I was lucky enough to play professionally both in this country and in Australia. I stopped playing in my mid-twenties in order to focus on a family business but soon realised my true passion laid in sport and fitness so I took time away to study at the Australian Institute of Fitness. In 2007 I returned to set up Esteem in my home town of Wakefield. Since then,  I have worked with countless clients whose journeys inspire me to do more everyday. I also worked with the Leeds Rhino’s from 2009-2012 as a strength and fitness conditioner which was an amazing experience and in which allowed me to expand my knowledge further.

We learn by doing. We lead by example. Perhaps Emerson said it best, “what you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.” The accomplishments of the people who train or are associated with us speak for them.
