Personal Training Manager
Shawn naturally fell into the fitness industry coming from a background where he was always active and engaged in sport from a young age. Having played a range of sports at school, Shawn later specialised in sprinting 100m and 200m and then went on to participate at competitive weightlifting.
When it comes to working as a fitness professional, Shawn loves being able to help people push themselves physically and switch off from their stresses of day to day life. Setting people challenges and pushing them that little bit harder than they might have done on their own provides him with great satisfaction. He loves to see people leave having had a great session and also strives to keep people working consistently, and looking at fitness as pleasurable and not a chore!
Alex was involved in sport from a young age, playing every sport he could whenever he had the opportunity. He channelled this enthusiasm for exercise into rugby and weightlifting, focusing more on performance. This paved the way for a passion in health and fitness. Injuries took their toll and Alex stepped away from performing himself and transferred the personal skills he had developed into furthering his knowledge of sport, health and fitness, studying various courses to prepare himself for a career in helping others to achieve their goals.
Alex now works as a personal trainer and a health & wellness consultant. Using a holistic approach he incorporates all relevant aspects of wellness to help guide personal and corporate clients to achieve their goals. Balance and consistency are the keys to progress and success.
