Arvy Dauginis

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My name is Arvy and I’m a movement and wellbeing practitioner. I was always active with a passion for fitness activities when growing up. In my 15-17s, I took a lot of interest in bodybuilding and strength training. Alongside weightlifting, I started practicing arm wrestling training and intensively competed in the professional competitions.A few years back, I experienced a shoulder injury. The recovery process allowed me to learn a completely different approach to the body movement principles and importance of mindset in the training. Since then I practice a holistic lifestyle approach which helped me to achieve a long lasting results.I’m here to help you to improve your body and perform better towards your goals. My primary focuses is on re-education of movement, mobility and flexibility, mindful body awareness of how to exercises, move and perform better, which helps to improve your life inside and outside the gym.

What my Clients say:

"Training with Arvy has been nothing short of amazing. He is knowledgeable, professional and very thorough. I have been going to gyms for over 30 years and can honestly say that training with Arvy has given me a new motivated approach to working out. He listens to you and then explains the best way for you to reach your goals whether the goals are sport related or more quality of life related. He has shown me several new exercises and routines that have had an immediate impact on my strength, flexibility and endurance. Simply put, Arvy is an outstanding coach! I would highly recommend Arvy to anyone who wants to see results from their time in the gym." - Brain Callahan

Ethan Lock

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My name is Ethan Lock and I am one of the personal trainers here at Nuffield Health Aylesbury Fitness and Wellbeing Gym. I got into the fitness industry in a very bizarre way! Before I decided to study for my personal training qualification I was a zoo keeper. I know, crazy right! During my time as a zookeeper, I found myself very unhappy in my own body as I was quite overweight. I researched everything I could about fitness and I decided to join the gym and I had one goal in mind which was to lose 2 stone in a year. Long story short, I lost a total of 4 stone that year all on my own! From that day forward I decided I wanted to get into the fitness industry and help others through their struggles as I knew how it felt to be in their position. Since then I have acquired my personal training qualification and joined the Nuffield Health team and have never looked back!

My qualifications

  • Personal Training Level 3
  • CIMSPA registered
  • Weight Loss Management
  • Muscle Toning and Development
  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Martial Arts Background
  • Nutritional and motivational support

What my Clients say:

'I came to Ethan as a gym 'newbie', nervous with low self confidence and weight gain. I was looking to tone up and reduce my fat mass and stress levels caused by a high pressure city job. I knew Ethan would understand me from his past background dealing in weight loss. I found it easy to relate to him and almost immediately felt comfortable in an alien gym environment. Over the time I've been training with Ethan I've hit the goals he set me one by one, everything was realistic and I achieved so much more than I ever thought I would! Adding to my weight loss I found my low self esteem improved and am now able to complete my gym workouts and 'homework' alone in the gym without feeling embarrassed. I continue to work with Ethan as I am still seeing results that I felt were way beyond my capabilities. Thank you Ethan!' - Shannon

Carl Simpson

Welbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My passion for physical fitness started when I was 12, when I began learning kickboxing. By the time I was 17, I had obtained my black belt and other belts in various different Martial Arts. My love for fitness wasn’t just physical; I also enjoyed the theory behind the science. 

The importance of physical fitness become brutally clear when I endured my military basic training course, along with three operational tours of Afghanistan and one tour of Iraq. The harsh environments, torturously heavy equipment and the distance covered on foot. These experiences moulded my mind set, which enabled me to complete marathons and an ultra-marathon. Recently I competed in a UKBFF Men’s Physique category in which a placed forth. Doing this enabled me to understand the dedication and painful procedure to achieve the low body fat of around two percent. I have a vast array of different training disciplines that can be used to achieve whatever goal you want to achieve. I believe dedication, discipline and determination are the key factors for success.

What my Clients say:

“I had damaged my knee 17 months previously, and as a consequence dropped back on my exercise regime, gained weight and my self-esteem was low. I am so happy that with just two months of training, my knee is so much stronger and the constant pain I previously experienced has virtually gone. After each PT session with Carl, I felt energized and strong- feeling positive about myself and life. I highly recommend Carl as a Personal Trainer" - Margaret Brookes, 58

“Carl was there to give me guidance and mentor me more with my food, rather than just exercise. Without his assistance I think I would have given up and not lost the stone and a half I needed. I know feel content and happy in my clothes. Carl has given me the tools to keep constant. Thank you for all of your help! Highly recommend him if you are looking to feel and look great!” - Sharleen Merritt, 34
