Steve Leslie Personal Trainer

Steve Leslie

I took my first steps into a gym over 12 years ago and after noticing results I was hooked, I had the bug. In seeing I could make a difference to myself I knew I could do the same for others so I decided to take the leap and change my career path.

Nearly 10 years later I have expanded my knowledge and developed a style in which the sessions I deliver are both challenging and enjoyable. I understand that everyone is different and has different goals so every session is specific to the individual whatever your goal may be strength, endurance, weight loss or a total body transformation. I pride myself on getting people results and achieving what my clients may see as unachievable.

I have been training myself for 8 years. I started after I had my son, because I wanted to lose weight. Hard training and good diet helped me to lose 30 kg. At that time I discover my passion for fitness.

I recently done my Personal training qualification to be able to help people reach their goals and because I really enjoy to train people and just love my job. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my clients achieve good result.

Personally I enjoying weight lifting and long distance run to keep me fit and change my physique. Most of the time when I’m not working you will find me in the free weight area or on treadmill.

I am also a qualified spin and Mossa Power Instructor teaching regular classes, so if you fancy a challenge away from the gym floor come and join me in the studio.

This being said, I am a versatile trainer who works with clients of all abilities and can personalise your workouts to reach your goals, whether they are to lose weight, increase strength or become more functional. As a personal trainer I do not only see myself as someone who can help you improve physically but I also want my clients to build confidence, knowledge and understanding with both fitness and nutrition.

I have recently completed my Level 3 pre & post natal qualification which means I can also help women continue to train throughout pregnancy.

The body can achieve what the mind believes. Fitness is not just about working towards your ideal body but in addition developing that mind-muscle connection, that mental strength in order to create the steps to achieve the goals you have in mind. This is what I aim to teach and develop throughout clients no matter experience level or goals.

Myself I am a recent University of Hertfordshire graduate the field of Computer Science. I always had a desire for fitness which lead me to becoming a Personal Trainer. There is a great satisfaction when clients achieve their goals in and out of the gym and just being a part of that journey never gets old. It is what makes me love what I do and keeps me motivated to keep pushing and spreading the fitness lifestyle.

Calisthenics (bodyweight exercises) is an art which I involve myself in a lot. Knowing the limits of your body seeing how far you can really push yourself with no equipment, just the weight of your body. If this interests you, I’m the man to see.

Celia Vale

I am passionate about fitness and get a kick out of helping people achieve their goals, whether that be losing weight, sorting out your head, regaining your general fitness or recovering from illness. I don’t shout and I’m not a fitness freak, I will work with you to push you out of your comfort zone, but in a way that makes you feel motivated and supported. I make every session fun and enjoyable, challenging but doable, increasing the difficulty each time to ensure you get the best out of it. I particularly enjoy working with people who may find the gym intimidating. So, if this is you, get in touch! I will help you overcome your fear and make you feel comfortable and at ease.

I love training outdoors, whatever the weather, with boot camp style sessions including HIIT, OMEM (on the minute every minute) and the more traditional circuits.  All sessions will be tailored to individual needs but that doesn’t mean cutting out the exercises you don’t like!  If individual sessions are too expensive or you prefer to work with a friend, I offer small group training - share the cost but more importantly share the journey.

“Celia tailor exercises and levels to individual needs and is understanding of personal circumstances. She has a down to earth approach to fitness and lifestyle.”
