Anthony is very keen sportsman, particularly weight training and cycling. He is also a member of his local running, cycling and triathlon clubs.
After completing the New Forest Marathon in 2011 he thought he would try a triathlon.
So after taking up cycling and swimming in 2011 Anthony completed the Alpe D’Heuz Triathlon long course in 2012.
In 2014 he completed La Marmotte, a 108 miles cycle across the French Alpes along with gaining his Diploma in Medical Acupuncture.
In 2016 he cycled from Upminster to Paris for charity in under 24 hours.
Anthony has been so impressed with acupuncture that he has applied the same level of commitment to its study and practice that enabled him to complete one of the world’s toughest triathlon challenges less than a year after taking up swimming and cycling.
Anthony is a family man with a daughter and two sons.
