Meet George Lloyd, Fitness Model and Barry’s Bootcamp Trainer 

 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! 

 

Q: Tell us a bit about your Barry’s journey: how long have you been training there and how many classes do you take a week? 

 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.

Q: For people who are new to Barry’s Bootcamp, how would you describe one of your classes?  

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.

 

Q: As well as helping others on their fitness journey, how do you ensure you’re always growing and expanding?

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. 

  

Q: We’re big believers in morning rituals – how do you start your day?

A: PORRIDGE PORRIDGE PORRIDGE! First thing on my mind as soon as I wake is that protein porridge. 

  

Q: What brings you the greatest happiness in your life?

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.

 

Q: What three things couldn’t you live without?

A: Protein (don’t judge!), family, and my dogs!

  

Q: What’s the best piece of fitness equipment you’ve bought?

A:  Strangely enough, my mobility band. Cannot recommend them enough, it has improved my training tenfold!

 

Q: Your favourite go to snack for energy? 

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. 

  

Q: Fitness is your life, but who inspires you?

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.

  

Q: What's your Mantra? 

A: Look yourself in the mirror, remember why you are here, remember you will never live this moment again – so go get it.
