Rian started his journey at FSM as one of the first teens in our programme at the age of 13. Showing a willingness to learn and understand movement, Rian quickly became a regular face in our daily classes. His first step into the coaching arena was when he started to help out in our kids programme. After some time he then took the next step and became a Brand X Method certified coach. From their he went on to become Europe’s youngest advanced youth coach with FSM and The Brand X Method. No to be fooled by his age (17) Rian has more understanding of movement and coaching than most PT’s out there. Always willing to learn Rian is consistently learning how to become a better coach and help more people through fitness.
Lee Gibson wanted to become a personal trainer because of his own personal experiences with weight loss and the fitness industry. He now finds no better feeling than helping people change themselves into fitter stronger more confident people. It takes dedication and drive to put in the hard work even on the days where you would rather be anywhere else. There is no better feeling when you see a client come back week after week and do a little bit more than they thought was possible and how as the progress in training everything about them begins to change. They smile so much more walk taller and are 100% more confident in their own skin. There is no better feeling than to help people feel happy about how they look and feel.
