Christopher Laing manages the nutrition, conditioning and weight management arm of Fit School.
This focusses on putting on lean tissue as well as losing fat.
Christopher has been running his own personal training business for 12 years in London and the Home Counties. He now works with a small group of clients, running their entire health and fitness programme. His clients include celebrities, ex professional footballers, football managers, traders and business owners.
Christopher has specific areas of expertise - sports conditioning, injury management, muscle building, fat loss, training for events.
Christopher's aim for Fit School is through group training, members will have the same access as his one on one clients. For years he's seen people get frustrated with gyms or the next exercise fad. The reason is people don’t understand how to create a programme and a road map for success. You can make anything a programme. Walking, Yoga, Pilates, circuits etc. He's a big believer of making it fun, engaging and social. If you really want to accelerate your progress, add a nutrition programme.
The most important factor is that you address the lifestyle issues that have got the point you are right now.
