Meet The Team
Steven Whittaker
Nutrition and Weightlifting

Possibly Better known at Stevie in the gym.  I first got a serious passion for health and fitness through sport as a amatuer boxer. 

As I devolped as a boxer so did my passion, I was taking my S+C and Nutrition much more seriously.  I took part in multiple scientific study's which looked at improving sports performance.

 I'm currently studying Nutrition + Evidence Based Practice with Mac Nutrition University.

If you enjoy what you do, you will never work a day in your life.

Intern/Coach


Hi I'm Lee Newburn.

I'm currently studying Sports and Exercise Science (Sports Nutrition) and I have a general passion for health and fitness.

Through starting my professional coaching journey at Platform, I've found a wealth of reward in helping everyone on their fitness journey no matter how big or small their goal is.

Mark and Ste's clear passion is something to admire and that's something that has fuelled me to become the best I can, personally and professionally.
Mark Council
Sports Performance and Weightlifting

I'm Mark the Sports Performance and wieghtlifting coach at Platform.

I started out my own fitness career as an amateur boxer, this bred a passion in me for health and exercise that I followed all the way through to completing a Masters Degree in Strength and Conditioning at Salford University.

I worked with teams such as Lancashire County Cricket Club, Manchester United Ladies, England Lacrosse and Bolton Metro Swim Squad until I specialised in Boxing Strength and Conditoning and now work with everyone at Platform who follows a strength and conditioning program, from those who are looking to tone up and get some fat loss all the way through to the Professional fighters we work with.

I wouldn't change it for the world!
