Personal Training Bristol | Tabaka FITNESS
REPs Personal Trainer (Level 3) / Gym Instructor (Level 2)
BSc Sports and Exercise Science
I’m not just a Personal Trainer with a certificate, but a sports scientist, health professional, athlete and an extreme health and fitness enthusiast as well.
I devote to fitness field as much as I can, making sure I am the best I can be. When I am not training my clients I am studying current research, testing different workouts and training myself. I teach what I preach.
I have received my HND in Sports and Exercise Science and been accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals as a Personal Trainer Level 3.
However, what I pride myself in is that I do not have a ‘tunnel vision’ and do not limit myself to a common ‘textbook approach’ when it comes to health and fitness. I look deeper and keep learning from the best coaches and athletes across different sports and disciplines, as well as health practitioners – nutritionists, physiotherapists, alternative medicine practitioners, podiatrists, well-being coaches etc. – confronting their methods with findings in current research as well as my academical knowledge, experience and in-depth understanding in human physiology and biomechanics. I develop my own methods by adjusting best elements of each approach in unique way to make it the most appropriate and suitable to an individual I am working with.
In the past I used to compete in cycling on a national level, partaking in such events as British Cross Country Championships for two consecutive years. Later I have also been involved in coaching other athletes helping them achieve their sport goals.
For the past 6 years I have been working in several fitness clubs practicing my holistic health and fitness approach. Currently I work in a private personal training only studio Synergi Training Space in Bristol (city centre) – for more details, please go to Contact page.
As a matter of fact, one size does not fit all, and the same goes with exercising and nutrition as we recently begin to discover. In my believe health and fitness programs can be truly beneficial to everyone only when they are individualized. Everybody has different strengths, weaknesses and responds to exercise and diets differently. I recognize it and employ all my academical knowledge and experience to deliver most suitable and effective training methods for each individual whether it to be for weight loss, or tone-up, stamina, strength or size gains, sports performance, mobility or posture improvement. It is key to understand, that our bodies can be truly fit and kinetically strong only with optimal posture and body alignment, hence I also put a great focus around correct biomechanics and technique for each exercise and correct muscular imbalances to assure optimal training progress, not to mention injury prevention or current pains relief (e.g. shoulder or back pains).
Having also studying nutrition and sports nutrition for 4 years and being a strong believer in alternative medicine I am a big enthusiast of well balanced diet as well as using nutrition as an ultimate remedy to most of the health problems we are often facing. Therefore, in my approach to heath and fitness I also put a lot of emphasis around nutrition as well as lifestyle and motivation. I believe that only when all these elements and bespoke and individualised training are combined, then we can achieve optimal results for each individual and make true lasting changes contributing to better healthier life.
I make sure my clients do not just learn a couple of exercises, but develop a new approach to keeping themselves active and taking a better care of their health and fitness. Putting emphasis on all these aspects and working with my clients in friendly and welcome environment is what in my opinion personal training is all about.
Over the last 9 years of working in the field I’ve done more than 3,000 hours of one-to-one personal training sessions with variety of clients ranging from Alana who lost 5 stones (32kg) in less than 6 months, or FC Aberdeen players improving their strength and conditioning, to Greg who won NAC Bodybuilding Championships in the UK.
I definitely don’t know everything but I managed to deliver results to over 100 clients I’ve had a pleasure to work with over the last few years
