Alex Bennett

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can i help you improve your health?

I specialise in body transformations and would love to help you achieve the body you have always wanted. I can help you lose weight, build muscle, tone up and accomplish your fitness goals faster than you may think. I compete in men’s physique which allows me to have a great understanding of nutrition and what it takes to get down to a low body fat percentage in a short space of time. I will often drop 10kg in 12 weeks or less so with my knowledge and your hard work there is no reason why you can’t do the same. If you’re looking to make fitness fun again then you are looking in the right place. Every session will be different to the last and I will make sure you are getting the very best from each session you have with me and hopefully have some great laughs along the way.

I have a strong background in martial arts from boxing to karate which includes a black belt in TAI SHO RYU freestyle kickboxing. In recent years I have further developed my fitness by taking up Crossfit. This has allowed me to explore functional training to help people achieve their maximum potential through effective and time efficient workouts. If you’re looking for a change of lifestyle whether it is to loose weight, get fitter and build muscle or even get that extra few added kilograms on your lifts I can help you achieve this. Whatever your goal, I can tailor a workout plan to maximise your potential to get the results you're striving for.

I now understand the importance of nutrition and with Tom's fun and challenging sessions I have become a fitter, healthier and happier me!"

Jay Quick

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can i help you improve your health?

I became interested in fitness and training when in 2015 I made the choice to change everything I did and through training, effort and willpower I lost five stone in two years, so I got my level 2 and 3 in fitness in 2017 and changed the idea of where I wanted to be, because of this I want to inspire and motivate people into achieving their goals, from weight loss and feeling fitter to strength and building muscle.

I like to create programs that are diverse and fun, something to make you enjoy your training and feel you are getting the most out of it. Also I like to build up the ideas of what you will be able to do and setting goals for future training.

I feel that training has a huge knock on effect on our everyday lives; using the gym will improve it so that you feel you can live better and feel wonderful.

I believe it is important to get the best understanding of your training because it is not just the body that changes but also the mind. I will help you understand, keep focused, motivated and feeling good.
