Basing my childhood and teenage years around fitness and sport, it was an easy choice to then become a personal trainer. When I was younger I gave anything a go and particularly enjoyed football and running. As I grew up I began to appreciate the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle and after leaving school I decided to continue in educating myself in health and fitness and how I could turn something I was very interested in into a career.
What I can do for you
If you decide you want to personal train with me then we will sit down and go through your five main goals and give them time scales in terms of importance to you and how realistic those goals are. We will then complete some simple body measurements to see where you are and ascertain where you should be next time these measurements are carried out.
What I specialise in
• Weight Loss
• Muscle Building
• Toning and Reduction in body fat
• Increase in Energy Levels
• Reduction in stress levels and anxiety
Personal Training is more than just an hour or two in the gym. It’s a chance to help change someone’s lifestyle, their outlook on fitness, their diet and their approach to exercise. No matter your goals I know I can help you achieve them.
• Level 3 Personal Trainer
• Level 2 Gym Instructor
• Circuit Instructor

Please ask me how you can achieve your training goals. I will offer you some guidance with no obligation.
PERSONAL TRAINER/STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACH
I eat, sleep and breathe health and fitness. Health and fitness has formed the foundation of my social, academic and working life for as long as I can remember. From freelance personal trainer of 10 years to strength and conditioning coach for professional football clubs I have continued to evolve my method of training and dietary advice. I have a real passion for training and it’s probably my most important trait. I believe in what I do and I work extremely hard in order for you to come out of this process happier, more confident, healthier and more importantly with the physique you want!
Away from Personal Training I am the First Team Fitness Coach/Head of Sport Science & Medicine for Stevenage Football Club, I’ve recently completed the London & Edinburgh Marathons, train very hard and eat very clean, continue to research the field of strength & conditioning as this will only benefit the transformations of my clients, and seem to be forever walking, cycling or running with my Labrador who on occasions I’m sure is training me rather than the other way around!
My strengths are in physiology and biomechanics, knowing how the body works and what exactly is happening to your body while you train is crucial if you are going to get the results you’re looking for. I can guarantee if you are prepared to work hard and follow my advice, your fat loss goal is achievable! Your tailored programme will be specific to you and your goal with the aim of producing healthy and permanent life changing results in the minimum time possible.
Some of my clients greatest achievements:
• Lost 21kg in 10 weeks: That was 92kg to 71kg (3½ stone in 24 sessions).
• 14% body fat reduction: An incredible body transformation.
• Cycled 500km across Zambia: With no previous endurance cycling experience.
• Rehabilitation of knee cruciate ligament injury: Allowing many more skiing holidays.

PERSONAL TRAINER/SPORTS THERAPIST
I qualified as a (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Certified Personal Trainer in 2005, whilst studying for my BSc Degree in Sports Therapy. I started working straight away, first as a fitness instructor and then taking on private personal training clients once I graduated from university in 2008 and could devote more time to them.
I have always been fascinated by the human body and how it works. This leads me to being very passionate about what I do. I am sure you would have found this out if you have ever asked me a question relating to health, fitness or nutrition as I can tend to talk for ever on these subjects. It is definitely also reflected in my coaching style. I take quite a methodical approach combining science and experience when working with my clients. I believe it is important to educate, as well as motivate and direct, after all my time spent one on one with clients is limited to a few hours a week, the rest of the time they have to put the work in and be disciplined themselves, even if I am only a phone call away.
The one thing that underlines my work with all my clients is injury prevention. Having the knowledge I gained from my degree I recognise the importance of keeping the body well balanced and the joints stabilised. For this reason no matter what your goal there will be an element of this in everyone's programme design, even if its not necessarily recognisable by you.
More recently my interests have turned largely towards nutrition, completing 2 separate nutrition related certifications in the last year. The most recent being BioSignature Modulation, which is a non invasive assessment that correlates hormone imbalances in the body, which can lead to stubborn body fat stores and health issues. I am currently taking on clients for this assessment but I will be limiting how many people I will have signed up at one time, so if interested get in contact.

I first got involved with the gym to improve my fitness and strength for football. I played competitively for both Queens Park Rangers F.C. and Fulham’s Academy. I really enjoyed my time in the gym and was happy with the results I achieved.
However, I wanted to learn more to continue my improvement. I believe exercise should be something to look forward to rather than something to dread. I take a fun, motivational, varied and understanding approach with all my clients to produce great results!
Whatever it is you want to achieve, it’s always easier with someone by your side, and I design tailor made exercise programmes specific to your individual needs, whatever they may be. My motivation is seeing members achieve their goals. I guarantee each session will be effective, but also enjoyable. I have been at The River Club for 10 years and have helped lots of members to achieve the results they want and deserve.
Feedback from a few of my existing clients…
“I have achieved so much since I have been training with Elliot. I have toned up and in consequence lost weight which in my case was a good thing! I am 1000% fitter and can now run 10km instead of 10 foot!!! Exceptional results.”
“I have achieved all my goals :- lost weight leading to a healthier body. I have gained confidence and become a much calmer person in the process. I look forward to events (nights out) instead of dreading them as I use to. I can now stay awake in the evenings – before I was falling asleep, getting very grumpy and was simply miserable (my husbands words).”
“Since I started training with Elliot I have started to run on the treadmill – amazing. Huge increase in fitness and lost 22kg (48lbs) in 7 months. Helped me adjust my lifestyle as well as the hard work. Thank you Elliot, you have helped me so much.”
I know i can help anyone to achieve the results they want,
whether that be to lose weight, tone up or to increase strength or

Working out and staying in shape is something I have always loved doing. Being able to help others reach their goal is something I consider myself lucky to be able to do.
I believe we can all reach our goals no matter what our ages and fitness levels. I have often had people tell me that they can't run or they can't do push ups for example, however I always tell them they can, they just need to learn how to.
I believe in finding the best way for each person to train, we are all individual, with our own needs and one programme does not fit all. I will show you how to reach your goals and help you find ways to reach them that you will enjoy. I don't believe in making people do something they hate, in my experience that just has the opposite effect and puts the client off coming to the gym.
It's never too late to set yourself a new challenge, it can often help keep you motivated if you have a goal to work towards. It might be to be able to run 2k or to learn how to do a full push up, or finally lose those last few pounds. Whatever it is, you can do it.
When it comes to keeping fit and building the body you want you need to make sure you are eating correctly too, no one can out run a bad diet. So along with your gym goals I can help you set nutrition goals as well to ensure you are the healthiest you can be in all aspects. It's not about a quick fix or a crazy fad diet, we all need balance and the correct nutrients. You wouldn't fill your car up with the wrong petrol, so why fill your body up with the wrong food.

If there is one thing I learnt in my time in the military as a paratrooper it's that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Your mind will quit long before your body does, you just have to find a way to push yourself in order to reach your goals, whatever they might be. It might not be easy, you might not always want to do it, but consistency is the key and without that you can't achieve what you want to.
I really enjoy helping clients to reach their full potential. I understand there will be days when you don't feel like it, when you don't want to be here, when you feel so tired you just want to go home. My job is to help you get past that, show you what you can achieve and that actually if you can just get to the gym you will feel better for it. No one ever said they regret that workout but you will regret skipping it.
I specialise in military style training, but I cater to all ability groups from total beginner to the advanced athlete. Whether you are a complete novice looking to have someone to coach you every step or you want someone to push you outside of your comfort zone to get fit for that triathlon, build up muscle or lose weight, I’m here to help you reach your goals in a fun, supportive and encouraging atmosphere.
What happens next?
Step 1 - We will meet at a time convenient to you to discuss your goals and find out a little bit about you.
Step 2 - Break your goals down into multiple short term goals and agree dates to review these goals.
