Sean Vine

I have a true passion in helping people reach their goals, passing on my expertise and experience which consist of 14 years coaching mainly in professional sport gaining an Msc in Strength & Conditioning (sports science), Level 3 master trainer and UKSCA qualified. People ask what you specialise in? I specialise in individual training needs ranging from top level professional sport teams and individuals to training 60+ year olds living their best life, keeping fit and
healthy Skills I deliver include: Strength Training, Muscle Gain (Hypertrophy), Power & Speed (Olympic lifting/Speed Training), Energy system development (cardiovascular system development), Nutrition, Movement. These subheadings branch off into many different ways of achieving the above goals.

Regardless of who I am training I approach each client with the same values:

  1. Accountability: Not everyone is on it 100% of the time, I am here to make sure you stay on task and remind you your WHY
  2. Team-Work: Client/Coach relationship is fundamental to enjoying your training, if you enjoy your training then you are more than likely to get the most out of it. A personal trainer is personal to who they are training, whether its nutrition advice or lifestyle help I believe a trainer should be more than just the 60 minutes you see of each-other in the gym
  3. Discipline: This Is hard if it doesn’t come naturally to you, being disciplined and consistent is a big part for clients achieving where they want to be
  4. Direction: They are so many different types of training interventions now. The problem is that it can confuse people trying everything under the sun and still wonder why they don’t see any results. Giving my clients direction gives them the platform and motivation as they understand the journey they are on.

Matt Charlton

Matt started practicing yoga while training to be an Osteopath in London (2006-2010). Recognising the importance that mindful movement has on the body and healing, he started a daily study of asana, meditation and philosophy.

Matt’s first yoga teacher training was based in Zen philosophy. He explored the meditative aspects of yoga and learnt to teach flowing classes. He then spent time in Mysore, India, studying Ashtanga Yoga at KPJAY, followed by Thai Massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and meditation in Nepal before deciding to go to the source of his passion for yoga: to study under Sri Dharma Mittra in New York City. Here he developed skills in teaching advanced postures, breathing exercises and meditation. Since his 500hr Yoga Teacher Training with Sri Dharma Mittra, he has taught yoga extensively in London (private and group classes) as well as in Nepal, India, USA, Italy, South Africa, and Hong Kong.

Matt’s classes are heavily influenced by the physical vinyasa flow of Sri Dharma Mittra. Combining this flow with pranayama, flowing postures and inversions (where appropriate), the classes are playful, strong, and tailored to the students in the room. By developing a strong physical practice we are able to focus the mind and calm our inner thoughts. Over time we can learn to use these skills in other aspects of our life. Matt strives to help others develop mindful movement practices to look after both the mind and body.

Matt can be found teaching yoga around London and providing Osteopathic treatments in his clinic – Vibrant Health – in London Victoria.

Kareem Jaiyesimi

My name’s Kareem. I started boxing in 1981, fought over 200 amateur fights – winning the Golden Gloves and the USA Amateur Championships during my career. In 1995, I started training with the late and legendary Roger Mayweather, becoming one of three amateurs that he’s ever trained (the other two being Steve Forbes and of course, Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather). So if you want to understand the concept of the Mayweather style, I’m your man.

I have also trained with other legendary boxing trainers including Emanuel Steward, Eddie Futch, and Luther Rawlings; trainers of Lennox Lewis, Joe Frazier, and Sugar Ray Robinson respectively. I have also had the honor to be a part of the training camps of some of the best boxers in history, including Mike Tyson, James Toney, and Montell Griffin.

Boxing is my first love and I find it very therapeutic. It’s a great way to connect with people and I really do believe that boxing is a great way to help those dealing with issues such as depression or substance abuse. To me, boxing is more than just a sport, it’s a way of life. So if you want a session that will provide you with the best energy and vibes, along with learning how to box like Floyd Mayweather, book a session with me and I’ll make sure that you’ll get a service that can’t be matched.

Fought over 200 amateur fights.
Won the Golden Gloves in 1993,1994, and 1996.
Won the USA Amateur Championships in 1994, 1995, and 1996.

Albes Krasniqi

I have a true passion for fitness and training and have been participating in sports my whole life, but specifically competitive boxing from the age of 13 up until 19. During this time, I managed to go to the junior National finals and represent England.

But unfortunately, due to injury, my career was cut short. So instead, I decided to continue pursuing my passion of sport in a different way, by studying Sport Science in University wherein I graduated with a First-Class degree with Honours.

After completing that I tried to continue pursuing my career in boxing but, due to my old injuries flaring back up and preventing me from doing so, I decided instead to just train recreationally purely out of my love for the sport and for exercise.

I have a wealth of training knowledge and years of experience in training clients on both a one-on-one basis, as well as in a group setting, to assist them in achieving their goals.
