Andrew Nichols – Director – “Brain The Size of A Planet!”
Focus Training’s Director Andrew set up his own legal firm back in 1982 before becoming Property Partner at Elmhirst Parker Solicitors (Barnsley/ Sherburn/ Selby) in 2000. Since he swapped the deeds for the dumbbells, he now runs the successful ship that sees us producing some of the UK’s best fitness professionals.
A funny chap (who tells us he has a brain the size of a planet!) Andrew always knows how to crack a joke and is often an instant hit with people he meets owing to his born leadership skills and passion for people.
When he’s not on track for world domination of the fitness qualification variety, Andrew likes to swim, cycle and run. Also a green-fingered guy, he’s crammed 25 fruit trees into his garden and grows the best rhubarb in Leeds!
