Growing up watching loved ones at the mercy of debilitating illnesses, Stuart became passionate about transforming people's health, helping them attain boundless energy and maintain their fitness whatever their age. Being a Fire Fighter for thirty years Stuart was lucky to have a job that required him to keep physically fit. Early on his career he qualified as a Fire Service Physical Training Instructor and did this for twenty-five years, until he retired early. Learning about the power of nutritious food in transforming his own health, Stuart studied at the highly respected Institute for Optimum Nutrition in London for three years, before qualifying as a naturopathic nutritionist in 2003—after a further three years of study— at Plaskett College.
Stuart lives in Kent, England with his wife
