Stuart Crispin > Ultra Distance Expert > Barefoot running specialist > Event preparation Background Over 20 years experience in the fitness industry Worked for leading company in the private franchise fitness sector. Manager of my own fitness centre before joining London fire brigade in 2001 Fire station PTI Being a veggie I understand the difficulties that some people have with nutrition as a whole, but especially how to manage their energy levels and recovery during extreme events. I maintain a high standard of fitness in order to inspire and motivate clients to unlock and fulfil their potential. I set realistic achievable goals to fit in with individuals lifestyles and commitments. I make training sessions as varied and fun as possible whilst motivating and encouraging clients to push themselves to achieve their goals. Philosophy I have tested myself physically and mentally in some of the most extreme environments; let me help you to achieve your goals using these same motivational techniques.
