There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.”
Napoleon Hill

Professional Experience

Ash made the decision to leave his job in marketing and turn his passion for fitness into a career. After gaining a qualification in Level 3 Personal Training, as well as Suspension Fitness, Kettlebells and Padwork from YMCA Fit, he joined the team at Fitness Lab. Since then Ash has delivered hundreds of PT sessions and small group training sessions. This has allowed him to work with a broad variety of people and learn to tailor his approach to get the best out of every person.

Coaching Philosophy

Ash believes a positive mental attitude is the driving force behind every success in life. Therefore that’s the philosophy Ash looks to instil in every individual client. With a positive mindset, you’ll learn to love the journey just as much as the final destination. Every training session should feel like a victory, whether big or small, on the road to your ultimate goal.

Personal Interests

Ash’s other great passion in life is Professional Wrestling. Under the guise of his alter ego Charlie Carter, you can find him competing in the ring most weekends. It’s a creative outlet that’s taken him across Europe – to date he has performed in four different countries in front of crowds of up to 1,800 people. He is also something of an amateur mixologist and enjoys creating (and sampling!) new cocktails most weekends. He is happy to share recommendations, but his Old Fashioned recipe is a strictly kept secret.
