Welcome to Freestyle Functional Fitness

Hi, I'm Jason Taylor and this is Freestyle Functional Fitness, a military inspired holistic fitness training system designed to develop and improve both physical and psychological well-being. I am a personal trainer based in Wimbledon.

About Me

I am a REPS Level 4 qualified Personal Trainer and UK Athletics Running Coach based in Wimbledon and I hold Diplomas in Fitness Instructing, Personal Training and Exercise Referral with Premier Training Academy. Premier is widely acknowledged as the leading provider of professional fitness qualifications in the UK.

Since 2000 I have been a member of the Army Reserves. During this time I have passed the All Arms Commando course, Army Physical Training Instructors course and served on two overseas operational deployments.

I instruct outdoor and indoor group training, corporate teams and private clients on a regular basis. I offer advice on training and preparation for endurance events and multi terrain obstacle course races. My fundamental philosophy is that fitness should be fun and inspire you to achieve more.


Training can take place outdoors, at your home or place of work, I presently train clients in Wimbledon, Putney, Clapham, throughout South West and Central London.

A complimentary initial consultation is held to determine your goals and ambitions before training commences.

Personal training on an individual basis to suit your level.
Train with a partner or friend or small group (up to 4 people).
Corporate team training, indoor circuits, outdoor bootcamp.
Running coaching
Preparation for endurance events
Multi Terrain
Multi Terrain Obstacle Course Training

The training regime is individually tailored to your personal goals, whether it is simply wanting to be more active, lose weight, improve tone and feel better or pursue a sporting life time challenge. The programme is progressive and will focus on 5 core aspects of health related fitness, cardio vascular ability, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition.

My training belief system is a distillation of over 20 year’s experience, of outdoor training, from body weight circuits and intervals through to long distance trail running and hill walking.

Functional fitness involves working muscle groups collectively and in coordination. It is the route of entry to develop physical health and fitness effectively. Modern day life for most of us has engineered out any type of physical activity and that is why functional fitness training has become so essential.

I train a very diverse range of clients from those just starting out to individuals wishing to prepare for endurance races. The common link though, their desire to find pathways for change and a hunger to realise their true potential. The ability to operate from an improved vision of themselves.
