MEET OUR TEAM: SEAN’S STORY

Next Level Fitness _WIP6256

I used to be 18 stone. One day, I ran up the stairs in my house and I was out of breath. I still remember that moment vividly, the moment I knew I had to change. But it wasn’t an overnight win. I didn’t “Lose 5 stone with these 3 simple steps…”

I went from overweight to not eating properly.

Reaching my end goal of being skinny hadn’t brought confidence or happiness. Being a certain weight or body shape doesn’t bring fulfilment. I discovered what brings you fulfilment is being able to do the things you want, not limited by fitness. Happiness comes from within.

IMG_6832I love mountain biking, climbing and surfing. Being fit allows me to do those things. That’s what Next Level Fitness is all about for me: fitness with a purpose, because that’s what brings happiness.

I founded Next Level Fitness because I want to help people in similar situations, so they don’t get lost in the woods like I did.

Now I’m focusing on growing Next Level Fitness, but making sure that it always stays true to what it was supposed to be. I’m so proud of the team and what we’re achieving for people. But I know that there’s a lot more people out there that could use our help.

I love keeping up to date with new developments to improve how we help people with both fitness and nutrition. (Which I often share in our blog.) For me it is important that fitness is fun as well as effective. The reward for me is getting people past those emotional blocks and retraining their brain to prove that they CAN do what they thought was impossible. To push themselves and enjoy fitness Because if I could, you can.

Looking back at how many people we’ve helped is a huge buzz.

“I came to Sean a year ago having tried on my wedding dress that didn’t fit and bulged in places it shouldn’t. I told him that i had a year to get into my wedding dress. Having never had a personal trainer before, I was very nervous about some fit guy seeing me jiggle all my wobbly bits. Sean was very friendly, talkative and forthcoming which put me at ease straight away. He wasn’t your cliché of a personal trainer and quickly became a friend. I trained with Sean once a week for a year. I’m not a gym goer, I don’t exercise and hate any sort of running/lifting/stretching but Sean pushed me. I moaned every step of the way and fought him on most things…but I did it, I lost 2 stone and still had a pizza every weekend! On the day of the wedding i was shocked at the scales. The dress fitted perfectly and I felt amazing. I can’t thank Sean enough, as I had my dream wedding without any worries of bulges. I had so many compliments it was unreal. If you want to lose weight, tone up or just get fit then Sean is your guy!!! If he can get me to lose weight, then he can do anything. Top lad that will get you to your target and have a laugh along the way.”

Meet our team: Jordan’s story

Next Level Fitness _WIP6252

Age 22, I was 17 stone. Someone close to me had a heart attack and it was a huge wake up call. I didn’t want to be in a box before I was 40 and I could see my life headed that way if I carried on.

I came to Sean at Next Level Fitness as a client, and Sean helped me to turn my life around.

Now I want to help others turn their lives around. The reason I love Next Level Fitness is because the focus is the same as mine – looking after people emotionally and psychologically as well as physically.

I love knowing the science and the technicalities behind nutrition and workouts, so if you’re ever curious as to exactly what your workout is doing for you, or why you should be eating certain things, I should be able to enlighten you!

Although my icon is Arnie, my ideal client isn’t a shredded bodybuilder looking for gains. If you don’t fit into life’s cookie cutter, the chances are, we’ll get on, because neither do I. I’d rather hear about your weekend playing Overwatch than listen to someone telling me how trashed they got when they were out clubbing.

I want to help people, especially people who want to lose weight, turn their fitness from a negative to a positive, build their confidence from doing that and show them how to apply what they’ve accomplished to other areas of their life. I feel like I can really relate to this and get results for people because I’ve been through an identical process

Meet our team: Abbie’s story

Next Level Fitness _WIP6412
Meet Abbie! 🙋🏼‍♀️

Abbie has been a Personal Trainer for 5 years and part of the Next Level Fitness team in Rotherham for just over 3 months now!

Here’s her story:

I’ve always has a passion for sport from an early age, especially in football and boxing as I grew up.

Originally I left school planning to be a teacher however at university part of my degree focussed on gym based exercise and it was that I enjoyed the most. I enjoyed it that much I knew that’s what my career had to be.

Along the way I tore my ACL (knee ligament) which put me out of training for a long time. I had to start from the ground up to get my knee back to where it needed to be. That set back allows me to relate to other’s struggles.

The things I love about training are; it keeps me feeling healthy, there’s always new things to do and learn, and it keeps me in a routine. Most recently I’ve had a go at Crossfit.

The feeling of achievement when you finish a tough workout is the biggest hook. When it comes to the clients I work with, seeing how amazing they feel as they reach a milestone in their journey gets me buzzing for them!

I love to work with people who want to lose weight and get fit. People who are motivated and want to push themselves every session. They want their goals and I want to get them there. It’s the reason I get up in the morning!
