A MIDDLEWICH based personal trainer has attracted a list of celebrity clients after first being approached by one of the stars of ‘The Real Housewives of Cheshire’.

Adam Murphy, from Zero 44 Performance in Middlewich, was approached by the reality TV star and entrepreneur Lauren Simon six weeks ago and since then his celebrity client-base has continued to grow.

Adam said: “It started when I was contacted on Instagram by Lauren Simon. I don’t know the show that well but I saw the blue verification tick on her profile.

“She said that if I could do sessions at a discount price then she would be able to give me some promotion through her social media profile.

“Since then I’ve been getting quite a few messages.

“My Instagram account has grown from about 600 followers to more than 12,000 now.

“I also got a shout out on the radio by Sarah Jane Crawford so it has been really good exposure for me.”

Adam has been working as a personal trainer for more than 10 years and it has long been an ambition of his to take on celebrity clients.

Adam has also recently been working with celebrities such as Hollyoaks actress Steph Waring, and radio presenter and DJ Sarah Jane Crawford.

Cold Feet star John Thompson, Coronation Street actor Ryan Clayton and professional ice dancer, Alex Murphy are also set to join Adam’s list of famous clients.

Adam said: “It’s been something I’ve always wanted to do and now that I’ve started it has opened up a new door for me.

“It’s good to get in with that network of people because they need to work with people they can trust with their personal details.

“Now that I have got a few celebrity clients I’ve been able to start approaching potential clients directly.”

Zero 44 can be found in Unit 20, King Street Trading Estate in Middlewich.
