I not only have a passion for fitness, but a passion for helping people achieve their fitness goals spanning seven years. A natural athlete, my love for fitness has led me to complete a BSc in Sports Science and an MSc in Exercise Rehabilitation. I will work with you to achieve safe, quick and lasting results with an emphasis on strength and conditioning, fitness, rehabilitation and full body transformations

  • REPS Level 3

What my Clients say:

“After two years of weight loss, I needed to shape my body. I had no experience in the gym and had lost a lot of muscle along with the fat. Lazaros showed me how we could regain the muscle without regaining the fat! Our workout plan was detailed, tailored to my strengths and weaknesses and the results were very quick. I have now reached my goal of a lower body fat percentage and have gained strength, muscle and confidence in the process.”
