George is one of most ambitious personal trainers we know. His energy and positivity are addictive – and if you haven’t done one of his 9pm ‘Dedicated Hour’ Barry’s classes yet, you’re missing out!
A: So, the journey all started back in October 2016 when I started the training to become a Barry’s instructor. I'd just quit my steady office job to chase the fitness dream, so it was all a bit daunting! After months of training I taught my first official class in February, and haven’t looked back since. I try to take at least three classes a week myself, mainly because I love the style of training, and I teach classes most days.
A: The class is a mix of high intensity running and weight training. I like to bring the energy and positivity, and you can always expect an immense atmosphere in all the trainer’s classes.
A: I like to constantly be challenging myself and trying new things, whether it be different training styles, fitness challenges or just surrounding myself with people that push me to be better. I think that's the key.
A: PORRIDGE PORRIDGE PORRIDGE! First thing on my mind as soon as I wake is that protein porridge.
A: Having people come up to me and say that because of me they were able to achieve something they didn’t think was possible. Whether that’s at Barry’s reaching a new personal best, or just improving their own mindset – for me that is the greatest gift in the world.
A: Protein (don’t judge!), family, and my dogs!
A: Strangely enough, my mobility band. Cannot recommend them enough, it has improved my training tenfold!
A: Either some protein porridge, mixed nuts, or fruit for sure. So easy to have on the go as well, which really helps a busy schedule.
A: It has to be the people around me, whether that’s family or the trainers at Barry’s - those guys really do inspire me every day to be the best version of myself. Everyone at Barry’s is a family and I love that.
A: Look yourself in the mirror, remember why you are here, remember you will never live this moment again – so go get it.
