I was brought up in the Caribbean and first found a love for fitness crashing through the waves on a jet ski doing tours with tourists. There, I had to be both super fit and a strong swimmer as I often needed to save lives. I have been fit my whole life, participating in exercise such as Judo, running, swimming, and hitting the gym frequently. In more recent years I have also been doing a bit of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), grappling and kick-boxing to mix things up and keep myself motivated. Many people have always been inspired by my knowledge and dedication for fitness which led me into pursuing a career in the fitness industry where I can make a living while helping people at the same time.
I qualified as a Level 3 Personal Trainer after moving to the UK in 2014, and since then I have built up a successful brand, MaxFitPT. I offer one to one and group training, and I also lead gym classes such as TRX, HIIT and spinning. Since becoming a father, I have also taken a special interest in postnatal training, and broadened my knowledge base through training with a women's health physiotherapist so that I can offer safe and niche training to mothers wanting to return to exercise. I pride myself on my unique, motivational and fun style of working and my goal-orientated approach helps clients achieve the results they are looking for.
One thing I have noticed is that qualifications alone cannot make one standout as a great trainer in the health and fitness industry; being passionate and highly experienced are as important. Personally, I think preaching about something should be one's passion in order to inspire others. Last year I competed in the regional BNBF championships and am pleased to say I won!
