Glen Smith

Certified Personal Trainer

As a former multiple Olympic athlete and personal trainer with over 25 years experience in the fitness industry, I have had the privilege of training and working alongside some of the sports greatest coaches and I believe there are three core values that must be followed in order to achieve fitness success. They are functional movements, nutritional value and a powerful mindset.

I started my athletic journey at school from the age of 15 and gained my first Great Britain vest in the discus event just two years later. Over the next decade, I represented my country in multiple World Championships, Olympic and Commonwealth games, before retiring in 2005 to pursue a career as a fully certified advanced Personal Trainer, strength coach and weight management specialist.

With a thirst for travel, I spent three years training at the Australian Institute of Sport and the University of Southern California, were I developed a pronounced understanding of the biomechanics and movement patterns of the human body. With this plethora of knowledge and drawing from my Olympic experiences, my fitness mission is to systematically design and deliver superior integrated workouts, nutritional plans and support systems to inspire people towards their goals.

I have privately trained thousands of clients, online and in person, ranging from Olympic champions to fitness beginners, specialising in weight loss and muscle gain programs. A keen golfer and tennis player, my sporting interests expand beyond the gym and coaching, with new found passions for mountain biking and open water swimming. A self confessed ‘foodie’ I can always be found in the kitchen cooking healthy meals for my family and friends.

 My ethos has always been progression over regression. Moving forwards, finding the perfect life balance and building in confidence through corrective exercise and great nutrition is key to a healthy mind and body.
