Our Team

Richard Laughton

Richard Laughton is the founder of "Chester Personal Training". He is a fully Qualified GP Referral, LEVEL 3 REPS Fitness Instructor and has been involved in the Fitness industry for over 15 years.

Richie's Background

Richie started out by completing his Y.T.S (Youth Training Scheme) programe with Wrexham FC and was offered a full years professional contract which he accepted. Whilst waiting to hear back from specific clubs he applied to, Richie played at Tranmere and Bury and then was offered a 6 month contract with an Icelandic club who were based in the small town of Akureyi. After a season in Iceland, he played a lot of non-league football back in the UK before an unfortunate ankle injury which forced him down an alternative path in his career. Through the natural course of progression, Richie decided to take his qualifications in the Fitness Industry and concentrate on being a Fitness Instructor. His previous experiences along with his dynamic and proactive nature lends itself to an aptitude for helping others to develop themselves and reach the goals they set.

Personal Training

He has been personal training a wide range of clients for many years now. Last Year was exceptional with two of his clients hitting the 5 ½ stone weight loss mark. Both Chris and Alex have been entered into the Slimming World ‘Slimmer of the Year Award’ competition. Chris has now become a successful Slimming World consultant. Another success story is with a 22 year old man named Mark who unfortunately has the condition cerebral palsy. However, this has never deterred Mark's progress, he has trained for well over a year now and packed on a solid 3 stone of muscle coinciding with his original goal. Richie always uses Mark's progress as a building block for new clients due to his "never say die" attitude!! He is a fantastic client and an inspiration to anyone who dares say the words ........."I Can't"!!!!!

The team are very much looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to motivate and inspire you during your training regime in order for you to develop and progress to your maximum potential.
