Lewis Johnston

Coach

"Coach and spreadsheet extraordinaire"

I’m a big, friendly giant.

At first my only reason to train was to look good (I’m still working on it) but the improved confidence and sport performance that followed was contagious.

Now, I couldn’t imagine a life without exercise.

What inspired you to become a Personal Trainer?

I asked myself what I’d do if money wasn’t a worry, the answer was to coach people and it’s been a journey more fulfilling than I ever imagined.

 

Describe your personality in three words:

Enthusiastic, passionate, and fabulous.

 

What’s your earliest memory of fitness?

Playing under 6s football for Musselburgh Windsor – I was a lot smaller then but had the same enthusiasm.

 

What’s been your biggest achievement in fitness?

Silver at my first Jiu-Jistu competition. A brand new sport (that took 3 years of fence-sitting before starting) that was totally out of my comfort zone. I learned a lot, now I’m hungry for more.

 

What do you enjoy most about being a Personal Trainer?

Assist people achieve the results they want and see first hand how big an impact a healthy lifestyle can have.

Going the extra mile is always worth it. Listening, learning and caring more has been the catalyst to a positive and fun training environment.
